Impressive country house, charming coach house in about 42 acres of gardens, woodland policies and grazings.
Potterton House is an unusual combination of being a manageable and well-proportioned 6-bedroom country house with an attractive array of period features, extensive gardens, mature protecting landscape and secondary dwelling, all situated within an accessible but peaceful rural location within two to three minutes' drive of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route; 15 minutes' drive of Aberdeen City Centre and 15 minutes' drive from Aberdeen International Airport.
The house is principally built of granite, partly externally harled, under slate roofs (renewed in 2019); an organgery (sunroom) was added in 2007 and the house has also been extended to the rear.
Internally, the house was upgraded with the installation of biomass central heating boiler in 2022 (5 Year Guarantee) with its heating augmented by three solid fuel stoves within the house.
A period glazed entrance porch opens via partly glazed inner doors to an ' L' shaped reception hall with oak flooring and staircase off. To the right lies the dining room with its southwest facing aspect, handsome period features and solid fuel stove which also serves the adjoining sunroom.
Towards the rear and beyond the staircase lies the sitting room with its solid fuel stove set within a stone mantelpiece, all complimented by the usual period features including cornice, picture rail, fitted shelving and timber flooring. Double doors open into the sunroom with its southeast and southwest facing aspects, oak flooring and adjoining patio.
The open plan dining kitchen/sitting room forms the informal heart of the home and benefits from a bay window to the southwest and triple aspect to the northwest. There are fitted kitchen units framing a four-oven oil fired Aga, oak flooring and fireplace housing solid fuel stove. The remaining ground floor accommodation is completed by a WC situated off the entrance hall and to the rear of the house a utility room, study - currently used as a storeroom -and shower room alongside rear entrance porch and boiler room. There is also a gymnasium and coal store accessed externally.
The first-floor accommodation is arranged around split level landings with the principal bedroom incorporating a tripe aspect, fitted wardrobes, en-suite dressing room and shower room. The front landing leads to double bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 as well as bathroom with separate shower cabinet and WC cased in an oak box
The Coach House benefits from oil-fired central heating and is currently let on a Short Assured Tenancy at a passing rent of£760 per month. The Coach House extends to about 1,678ft (155.89m2).

I love the immediate ambience of a cherished, welcoming home along with the charm of the coach house. The polices are a haven for wildlife.Fiona GormleyProperty agent
