    About this property

    • The original home on the site of Errol Cottage was replaced in 2007/2008 by a substantial modern 2.5 storey detached house with pitched slate roofs and an interior finished to a very high specification. A consistent theme throughout is the extensive use of dark oak doors, door frames, skirting boards and flooring. The main staircases and stairwells and other selected areas are carpeted. There is a comprehensive range of contemporary plum coloured base, drawer and wall cabinets in the kitchen, complemented by luxury work surfaces. White Fired Earth sanitary ware is fitted to all five bathrooms with some featuring rolltop or free standing baths, over sized shower enclosures and mains operated drench shower heads. TA front entrance porch gives access to storm doors within the monochrome tiled floor area. Spacious hallway areas have double and single storage cupboards. The open plan reception areas are simply superb. The heart of the home is the open plan dining kitchen, sitting room and dining room which features French doors and centre patio doors flanked by a bay window on either side. Being on the first floor, this takes full advantage of the golf course views and provides fantastic alfresco space with large decked areas. Fitted library style bookcases fill one side of the dining room and a staircase leads to the study, which is an ideal retreat for those who work from home. With a front facing aspect is the family/television room The principal bedroom suite with dressing room, and en suite with freestanding bath and patio doors to the decking area is of particularly generous proportions. A bedroom with patio doors leading onto decking also has an en suite bathroom with roll top bath, separate shower enclosure and twin wash hand basins. Adjacent to the study is a double bedroom with dual aspect en suite which is also accessed from the hallway. Again this room has a free standing roll top bath and separate shower enclosure. A further double bedroom has an en suite shower room. Another en suite double bedroom benefits from garden and golf course views. A useful boot room has side external access and a Belfast style sink while for everyday domestic tasks there is a laundry room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A lower level basement room is currently used as a wine cellar.

      At the bottom corner of the garden is a stone outbuilding with a flat felt covered roof, electricity and currently used as a storage space.

    Local information

    • Cruden Bay is a small village on the north coast of the Bay of Cruden, Aberdeenshire. Just west of Slains Castle, Cruden Bay is said to have been the site of a battle in which the Scots under King Malcolm II defeated the Danes in 1012. Traditionally, the name was derived from the Gaelic Croch Dain (Slaughter of Danes). Cruden Bay is a firm favourite with tourists thanks to its big skies and wide horizons, sandy white beach, crystal clear waters and quaint fishing harbour while one of Aberdeenshire's finest sandcapes can be seen at the Cruden Bay Golf Club, a traditional Scottish links course originally designed by Tom Morris of St Andrews and re-designed in the 1920s by Tom Simpson and Herbert Fowler. The panoramic views across the coast and of Slains Castle in the distance are breath-taking. Erroll Cottage offers direct access onto the second tee of the course.
    • Cruden Bay has a medium-sized primary school and secondary pupils are bussed to nearby Peterhead Academy. There are a few small shops, a chemist/newsagent, a post office/hardware, a craft shop and a general store. There is also a medical surgery and a library. There are also many sports facilities, tennis courts, and two football pitches. The school and public hall house a number of youth groups such as Girlguiding UK.
