The original mansion house of an Aberdeenshire estate has been put up for sale for £750,000.
The House of Glack, a category B listed building on the Daviot Estate near Inverurie, has been described on property agent Savills website as a “charming period residence”.
Dating from 1723, the now seven-bedroom home was originally built by the Elphinstone family.
When the nearby House of Daviot was acquired by Aberdeen’s Royal Cornhill Asylum and became the County Lunatic Asylum, the House of Glack was also transformed – into a nursing home.
The complex became known as Daviot Hospital, and the House of Glack was extended in 1934 when a three-storey rear wing was added.
During the war years the buildings were converted into a hospital for the wounded.
Since then, the House of Daviot has been converted into houses and flats, while the House of Glack was snapped up by new owners in 2002.
They finished a large renovation project at the property before putting it on the market.
Savills property agent Fiona Gormley said: “The utterly unique House of Glack offers spacious and versatile living accommodation with an endlessly flexible layout, ideal for multi generational living, growing families and buyers searching for guest house accommodation.
“The 17 acres of garden and land have been beautifully managed and maintained and offer the potential for hobby livestock and further enjoyment of nature on the doorstep.”
The extensive grounds were planned to enhance and attract wild plant and animal life and include an orchard, wild garden and wildlife friendly pond.
Some of the original 18th century floors and original furnishes remain, alongside the modern seven bedrooms and six bathrooms.
