Attractive five/seven bedroom detached farmhouse set amidst the rolling fields and open countryside of Fyvie, with potential for spacious self contained annexe accommodation.
Fetterletter Farmhouse is a handsome harled house with a slate roof. Believed to date from the late 19th century, the property was modified during the 1980s and provides spacious and versatile living accommodation throughout, which has retained much of its original character. The annexe accommodation provides superb potential for a linked property suitable for multi generational living or holiday lets. A gravelled horseshoe shaped driveway provides ample parking and access to the linked double garage, while the property is situated within generously proportioned and private garden grounds which are mostly laid to lawn with an array of mature trees.
A wooden door with leaded side and overlights leads into the entrance vestibule with tiled floor and white cornicing above. A partially glazed door with glazed surround leads into the large reception hall, where a red painted ceiling is interspersed with white cornicing and a ceiling rose. Arched plasterwork over the grand walnut staircase leads to the first floor accommodation.
The generously proportioned sitting room overlooks the property frontage via a bay window, and features an open fireplace with extensive Hopeman sandstone surround, mantel and display shelf. The formal dining room also overlooks the front garden via a bay window and features wooden flooring in addition to decorative cornicing and an arched alcove with wall light.
The dining kitchen is accessible from both the dining room and reception hall. A good sized room with high ceiling, the kitchen is fitted with a range of storage units, including an extensive breakfast bar area and deep silled windows overlooking the gardens. A large arched doorway leads into the spacious utility room where a partially glazed door leads out to the driveway. There is a stainless steel sink with countertop and two base units. Featuring extensive shelving and exposed ceiling beams, off the utility room is a walk in shelved larder which houses the hot water cylinder.
From the reception hall, the inner hallway allows access to the WC cloakroom, a range of fitted storage cupboards and the back stairs to the first floor living accommodation. An open doorway allows access to bedroom one, which overlooks the property frontage and benefits from a spacious hall area with access to the exterior.
Ascending the main staircase from the reception hall, a large window above the mezzanine landing overlooks the rear of the property and provides plentiful natural light. The first floor landing is of spacious proportions and allows access to three well proportioned double bedrooms. Along a carpeted corridor from the main landing there is a good range of fitted storage, while the contemporary style family bathroom includes a white three piece suite with corner shower enclosure.
A set of carpeted steps lead down to a further landing space which overlooks the property frontage and is where the back stairs from the inner hall meet. L-shaped bedroom five includes a picture rail and a fireplace with wood mantel, slate hearth and decorative tiled inset.
Returning to the ground floor inner hallway, a door lying on a split level leads into the former farm office, which provides great potential for self contained multi generational living or holiday let accommodation. The entrance vestibule is accessible from the property frontage, and leads into what was formerly utilised as a bar. Entirely pine panelled with ceiling spotlights, there is a fitted bar area with sink, while an extensive granite built fireplace houses an open fire which is also accessible from the living room. Again featuring extensive pine panelling, there is dual access to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation, first leading to the side entrance and where the former gun room is located off, which could easily be transformed into a play room. A pine lined bathroom includes a three piece suite. A set of stairs with understair storage leads to the first floor landing, which provides abundant fitted storage facilities and access to two former offices which would also be suitable as bedrooms, should the purchaser wish to transform the living accommodation.
Attached to the rear of the house is a double garage with concrete floor and which also houses the central heating boiler. To either side of the property entrance there are two small circular doo'cots, one of which houses the oil tank. The extensive garden is mainly laid to lawn and planted with seasonal bulbs, while there is also an array of mature trees including two fine copper beeches.
