    Outstanding and spacious modern country house

    About this property

    • Inchgreen is an outstanding and conveniently located modern country house, with views over open countryside and towards the hills. Completed in 2007, it was built on the site of a former farm cottage by a well known local building contractor, McPherson Construction Ltd, for the principal of the company, and has since remained as the family home. As such it was built and finished to a particularly high standard. There is a date stone of 2006 above the porch. The house is most attractively finished in a smooth white render with a slate roof, and while modern has a traditional country feel. Internally the house has extensive and flexible accommodation, which is very well presented.

      Inchgreen benefits from underfloor heating on the ground floor, including the garage, as well as in the en suites, bathroom, landing and playroom, at first floor level. There is Travertine tiled flooring in the porch, hallway, WC, dining kitchen, living room, back hall and utility room. The house is triple glazed and has solar panels which reduce running costs and provide a useful income. It is, therefore, an energy-efficient house which sits well within its own enclosed gardens and is ideal for both modern family living and entertaining.

      An entrance porch opens to a welcoming hallway with a staircase to the first floor, understairs cupboard and French doors to the garden. Off this is a double aspect dining room and a fine triple aspect sitting room which also has doors to the garden, as well as a warming wood burning stove and is HDM wired for a wall mounted TV. A useful partially tiled WC has a washbasin. The fabulous solid oak kitchen has iroko wooden worktops, tiled splashbacks, double sink and central island with a prep sink. Appliances include a Samsung fridge/freezer with ice and water dispenser, Belling Kensington range cooker with extractor, Whirlpool dishwasher and an AEG microwave. In addition, there is a dining area and a walk in larder. Beyond is a living room with a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden. A back hall has a side entrance door, shelved cupboard and stairs to the first floor. The office has fitted desks and shelves, while the utility room has fitted units, sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a storage cupboard. A partially tiled WC has a washbasin, while part of the integral garage is used as a gym/storeroom, with a cupboard housing a Grant oil fired boiler.

      The landing has a hatch with attic ladder to a floored attic. Bedroom one has a partially tiled en suite with shower, washbasin and WC. The principal bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and a partially tiled en suite with shower, washbasin and WC. Bedrooms three, four, five and six all have a built-in wardrobe, while the tiled family bathroom has a bath, shower, washbasin, WC and shelved cupboards. A playroom has a walk in cupboard and a hatch with attic ladder to a floored storage area overlooking the playroom with access to roof space.

      The lovely gardens surround the house and are enclosed by hedges and include lawns, flower and shrub borders, as well as a tree/playhouse. There is wooden decking attached to the living room, perfect for afternoon and evening light, as well as further decking and gravelled seating areas to the rear. To the side is tarred parking.

    Local information

    • Inchgreen is situated close to the county boundary of Angus and Kincardineshire, now part of Aberdeenshire, so is perfectly placed to enjoy all that both counties have to offer. It is a lovely and scenic area, known as ‘The Howe of the Means' and is only some 3.5 miles from the villages of Edzell and Fettercairn.
    • Fettercairn lies at the foot of the hills, and in 1864 The Royal Arch was built to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria, on her way to Balmoral. The local distillery was established in 1824. Fettercairn has a primary school, village shop and a café. The attractive and popular village of Edzell lies at the foot of Glenesk. It has local shopping including a butcher, post office, coffee shops, chemist and health centre, together with a country club within the Glenesk Hotel, and a renowned 18 hole golf course, along with a 9 hole course and driving range. Further shopping is found in Laurencekirk, along with secondary schooling and leisure facilities at the new Mearns Community Campus. A school bus for both Fettercain and Laurencekirk passes the property. Private schooling is found locally at Lathallan in Johnshaven and at many schools in Aberdeen. There are railway stations at Montrose and Laurencekirk, offering east coast mainline services to Aberdeen and the south. Aberdeen Airport provides a range of domestic and European flights and there are services from Dundee to Heathrow. Edinburgh Airport has a wide range of services and is also easily reached, while journey times to Aberdeen and its airport have been much reduced by the Western Peripheral Route.
    • The area is well known for its wide range of outdoor pursuits. There are further local golf courses at Auchenblae, Brechin and Montrose. To the north lie Royal Aberdeen and Trump International at Mennie, both well regarded links courses, while to the south are the courses at Carnoustie and St Andrews, which have both hosted the Open. Salmon and sea trout fishing can be taken on the nearby North and South Esks, while the River Dee and Deeside are easily accessible over the scenic Cairn o'Mount road (B974) from Fettercairn. Beaches close by include Lunan Bay, Montrose and St Cyrus, which is a nature reserve. The nearby glens offer some of the finest hill walking in eastern Scotland.
