About this property

  • 37 Anderson Drive is a four bedroom traditional granite built detached property, located alongside Anderson Drive, one of the central routes through Aberdeen city. Well maintained by the current owner, the property has been significantly modernised and extended in recent years, including the addition of a striking modern kitchen with open plan family/dining area, utility room, principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and modern shower room. However, a variety of charming traditional features remain, including panelled doors and walls, parquet flooring, high ceilings and deep skirtings. Outside, the property is situated within generously proportioned garden grounds with ample off street parking and access to a double length garage.

    A hardwood entrance door with stained glass panel above leads into the entrance vestibule, which includes original mosaic tiled flooring and extensive wall panelling. A 15 pane Georgian style door then leads into the spacious and bright reception hall. Of excellent proportions, the hall features the original parquet flooring and pine wall panelling, creating a grand and welcoming entrance to this home. A partially glazed door allows access to the well appointed boot room, while a bright WC cloakroom includes a white two piece suite and access to an under stair cupboard.

    Overlooking the property frontage via a deep silled bay window, the sitting room is a large public living space of neutral decor, at the heart of which lies a granite fireplace. The formal dining room also sits to the front of the property and is a well proportioned room with dual aspect windows and cream carpeting along with a large fireplace which includes a tiled inset and hearth.

    The striking modern kitchen also incorporates a family seating and dining area, making it a room the whole family can enjoy together. The kitchen features a range of versatile storage units with integrated appliances. A large breakfasting island is perfect for informal dining, and includes further storage facilities and a Siemens five ring induction hob. The family area is host to a wood burning stove, on either side of which are display alcoves with lighting and granite inset shelving. On open plan to the dining area, double doors lead out to the decked platform beyond, while the extensive windows ensure that plentiful natural light flows back towards the kitchen. The utility room is positioned just off the kitchen, and includes access to both the front and rear gardens via independent doors. Featuring a range of contrasting base and wall units, the utility room is also plumbed for white appliances and provides access to the boiler.

    Enjoying views over the rear garden, the generously proportioned principal bedroom is carpeted and of neutral decor, while including a range of fitted wardrobes. With ample space available for freestanding furniture, the principal bedroom also boasts an impressive en suite bathroom. Including a striking range of high quality sanitary ware, there is a WC, twin wash hand basins with vanity unit, a curved freestanding bath with shower attachment and a large walk in shower enclosure. Fitted with tasteful patterned floor tiling, a large frosted window provides plenty of natural light.

    Ascending the tartan carpeted staircase, the pine wood panelling continues along and into the first floor landing, while stained glass windows above the mezzanine landing provide natural light. On the first floor landing there is a shelved cupboard, while a store room provides good storage space for larger household items. Double bedrooms two and three are both well proportioned rooms of neutral decoration, while bedroom two includes a fitted half height unit which incorporates cupboards and shelving. Bedroom four overlooks the side of the property and includes a triangular shaped cupboard with inset coat hooks. Completing the accommodation is the shower room, which includes a modern two piece suite and shower enclosure.

    Situated within generously proportioned garden grounds, the property frontage include mature borders while an extensive driveway provides off street parking for a number of vehicles and access to the double length garage, which benefits from a tiered open storage area to the rear with separate garden access. The rear garden is a versatile oasis. Extensively laid to lawn, there is an array of small trees, shrubs and seasonal plants and flowers. Attractive raised beds bordered by decorative gravel chips could easily be utilised as a vegetable patch, while an extensive decked platform around the rear of the property is ideal for outdoor dining.
