Cosy up in a traditional cottage

A charming cottage in a beautiful conservation area – what more could you ask for? writes Cheryl Livingstone


Oldmeldrum was once the dominant settlement of the Garioch with 16 merchants operating out of the settlement in the late 17th century, in comparison with the four based in Inverurie and the two single traders respectively working out of Kintore and Insch. It is this rich history that the conservation order which is in place is there to protect.


It is a beautiful village filled with ancient and characteristically irregular street patterns and charming and quaint buildings. Fern Cottage at 25 King Street, Oldmeldrum, is one of these properties.

The traditional-built cottage is located in a quiet residential area of the village and is close to all the local amenities on offer including both primary and secondary schools.

The south facing property is a delight from the moment you set eyes on it, offering both a traditional home with modern touches.

Highlights include the spacious lounge with a cosy gas fire and wooden ceiling, a rustic kitchen with plenty of work surfaces and room for free-standing furniture, a good sized bedroom with double-mirrored wardrobes, a family bathroom plus two attic rooms, which are currently used as a study and library.



Outside, there are lovely mature garden grounds at the rear of the house with grass, fruiting trees, shrubs and a seating area. There is also a seating area and paved pathway at the front. Two wooden sheds, both with power, at the bottom of the garden are included in the sale.

On the market for offers over £180,000, Fern Cottage would make a great first-time buy or would be perfect for those looking for a more rural location but still within commuting distance to Aberdeen or industrial and business parks at Dyce, Westhill and Bridge of Don.
