About this property

  • Situated amidst delightful grounds of about 3.67 acres, and located on the outskirts of Stonehaven, Glengarron House is a spacious and inviting family home. Well maintained by the current owners, the property offers the peace and tranquillity of the splendid Aberdeenshire countryside, with the benefit of good commutability to Aberdeen city and the international airport.

    A set of double doors leads off the driveway and into the spacious entrance vestibule, which could also be utilised as a further living space given the dimensions.

    The generously proportioned sitting room enjoys dual aspect views over the garden grounds. With ample space for freestanding furniture, central to the room is the cast iron wood burning stove, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere during the colder weather. A fully glazed sliding door leads out to the paved terrace outside, while an opening from the sitting room allows access to the dining room, ideal for formal entertainment and with views across to the trees beyond.

    From the dining room there is access to the well appointed study, a bright and versatile living space which lies on open plan to the kitchen/family room. Bright and welcoming with large windows, there are lovely views across the garden to the trees beyond, and an abundance of natural light. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of base and wall units, while extensive work surfaces include a breakfast bar area for informal dining and incorporate a 1.5 sink and four ring hob. Within the kitchen there is an integrated fridge/freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher.

    From the study a door leads into the reception hall, where a staircase leads to the first floor accommodation. Within the reception hall there is a walk in store cupboard with lighting, and a further two fitted cupboards. The utility room is plumbed for white appliances and includes a stainless steel sink with drainer while also allowing access to the driveway.

    Enjoying lovely views across the garden grounds, the principal bedroom is a spacious and bright room. Fully carpeted, a glazed sliding door opens onto the garden, while the bedroom is well equipped with a range of fitted wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors. The principal bedroom also boasts an en suite bathroom which features a white four piece suite and a curved corner shower enclosure.

    Bedrooms two, three and four are all good sized rooms with garden views and fitted wardrobes. These bedrooms are well served by the fully tiled shower room, which includes a white two piece suite and shower enclosure.

    Ascending the staircase, there is the landing, off which is bedroom five. Of excellent proportions, bedroom five is a light and airy room with elevated views across the garden grounds. Bedroom five also boasts a fabulous and versatile dressing room with a range of white fitted storage units.

    Continuing along the landing there is the recreation room, which again is of a generous size. Given the dimensions, this versatile room could be utilised as a home office, yoga or art studio depending on the purchaser's requirements. A large store room with lighting is accessible from the recreation room.

    Situated amidst the splendour of the Aberdeenshire countryside, a private driveway from the main road allows access to Glengarron House, which is situated amidst about 3.67 acres. With ample parking facilities available, the immediate garden grounds have been beautifully landscaped, and provide superb opportunities for private al fresco dining in the sunshine on the extensive paved terraces. With large areas laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees, Glengarron House has two separate fenced paddocks that may be suitable for equestrian use. Within the grounds there is a garage/workshop with open fronted storage, while the former bothy may provide an interesting project for those minded towards potential holiday accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

A warm and inviting family home, the public rooms are very generously proportioned, with lovely views across the gardens. I especially like the fact that the property enjoys a peaceful countryside setting yet is so accessible to Stonehaven.
