Charming five bedroom late Victorian double fronted granite property with gated entrance, set within beautiful garden grounds of about 0.7 acres.
Glencairn was built during 1901 at the behest of James Moir, tailor to the Earls of Aberdeen at Haddo, who made his fortune in the Glencairn gold mines in South Africa, from where the house derives its name. Providing excellent family living accommodation, great care has been taken to retain the property's original features, which include decorative plasterwork, picture railings, sash and case windows and Canadian pitch pine doors. Situated within private gardens of about 0.7 acres, the grounds have been creatively landscaped to create an idyllic garden setting.
A large panelled door with stained glass panels to either side leads into the light and airy entrance vestibule. Featuring mosaic tiled flooring and white panelled walls, a partially glazed door leads into the grand reception hall, where an attractive staircase leads up to the mezzanine and first floors.
The elegant sitting room enjoys views of the front garden via the bay window area. Showcasing decorative ceiling cornicing, a striking white marble fireplace with slate hearth is framed on either side by arched alcoves with inset shelving.
Enjoying access to the rear garden via a glazed door, the versatile family room is of neutral decoration and carpeting. Perhaps also suitable as a further guest bedroom, there are decorative wall sconces and a wall mounted television.
The reception hall leads into the inner hallway, where an understair cupboard includes a range of coat hooks. With a door leading into the dining kitchen, an open cloakroom area leads into the WC, which includes a white two piece suite with monochrome floor tiling. The peaceful study features a range of fitted bookshelves, while a deep silled sash and case window overlooks the rear garden.
The spacious dining kitchen lies at the heart of this impressive home. Of attractive decoration to complement the Canadian cherrywood flooring, there is ample space available for a large dining table set, while a cast iron fireplace with slate surround enhances the traditional charm.
Within the kitchen there is a generous range of white storage and display cabinetry, with wood worktops incorporating a ceramic Belfast style wash hand basin. Inclusive of an integrated dishwasher and microwave, a Britannia cooking range with six ring induction hob is situated within a recessed former range space. Central to the kitchen is the striking Canadian cherrywood island, which incorporates a polished granite work surface. Including a range of shelving, wine rack, storage and an integrated fridge, above the island there is a suspended platform with inset lighting. A charming window seat area looks onto the rear garden.
The rear porch allows access to the gardens and a super pantry which is fitted with deep shelving along one wall.

Base units sit beneath a wooden work surface incorporating a stainless steel sink with drainer. Also housing the central heating boiler, the utility room is plumbed for a variety of white appliances.
Ascending the carpeted staircase, twin skylights ensure the mezzanine landing receives plentiful natural light. On a gentle split level, the family bathroom features a traditional style three piece suite, incorporating a striking roll top bath, in addition to a fully tiled shower enclosure. The bathroom has also been fitted with reclaimed pine flooring, to enhance its period character. Bedroom five is also accessible from the mezzanine landing and is currently used as a spacious dressing room.
On the first floor landing, a ceiling hatch with Ramsay style ladder allows access to the attic space above. The elegant principal bedroom enjoys elevated views over the property frontage via a bright bay window. A spacious and light room, a slate fireplace with patterned inset tiling is a notable feature.
