    About this property

    • The sale provides a unique opportunity to purchase a well located site with planning permission for a tourism based development and an existing four/five bedroom home. The development has been carefully planned to preserve the privacy of the house, which lies at the end of the access road and is secluded but not isolated, beyond the proposed chalets.

      Drumoak Tourist Centre
      Planning permission has been granted by Aberdeenshire Council (ref APP/2011/3852) for the erection of three chalets, each with three bedrooms, and a reception office/store to the north east of the existing house. It is a rare opportunity to provide a purpose built facility with accommodation for tourists and holiday makers in an area with an abundance of attractions. Full details of the proposal and business plan are available on request from Savills.

      Linardon House
      The accommodation is on two floors and has a versatile layout. The property has been thoughtfully decorated with light colours, allowing an abundance of light. The open plan sun room and kitchen provide both a focal point for family life and an excellent space for entertaining, with masses of light from the sun room's glass roof. The adjacent sitting room and dining room are open plan, in an L shape. There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, served by a bathroom with a corner Jacuzzi bath and a shower room with a large steam room off. Upstairs are a family room or large double bedroom with sweeping views of the countryside and a single bedroom.

      A private tarmac drive leads up to the house. Adjacent to the house are two double garages with power and a car port which can accommodate a 4x4 vehicle. There is a decked area for al fresco dining with views over the surrounding countryside.

The site has a leafy green location, sheltered and screened by mature trees, in a tranquil setting surrounded by meadows and woodland and with open southerly views over farmland to the Durris Hills. The Deeside Way is within in a few hundred metres and the River Dee is within easy reach.
