Grand former north-east manse is steeped in history… and has a home cinema, wine cellar and tennis court

Post Thumbnail

If you’re in the market for a home steeped in history then you’d be hard pushed to find a property ticking as many boxes as Harlaw House near Inverurie.

Completed in 1840, it started life as a manse for a church that has long since disappeared in the mists of time.

A distinctive tower, which makes it look rather like a castle, was added in 1883 to commemorate the brave citizens of Bon Accord and their Noble Provost Sir Robert Davidson, who fell fighting for their country’s rights at the Battle of Harlaw on July 24 1411 – the battle took place on the fields in front of the house.

The grand Victorian house, which is also very much a charming and stylish, practical family home, is packed with original features.

On the ground floor there’s a traditional tower entrance with exposed stonework, main reception hall, beautiful lounge with open fire, formal dining room, south-facing conservatory with vaulted glass ceiling and cathedral-style windows.

A home office, traditional-style dining kitchen, utility room, modern laundry room with wine cellar and a family room with home cinema completes this level.

A mezzanine level has a large double bedroom, bathroom and WC, creating an excellent private space for visitors.

On the main first floor is the beautiful master bedroom with a southerly aspect over the grounds, and three further full-sized double bedrooms.

One bedroom has a stunning en suite shower room located within the tower with exposed stone walls.

Moving upstairs again, there’s an inspiring music room, while another set of stairs leads to the roof of the tower from where there’s beautiful open views to be enjoyed.

A superb house, it sits within equally superb gardens. Rolling lawns, meandering paths, south-facing patios, a traditional stone water fountain, full-sized asphalt tennis court and a paddock for horses.

There’s also numerous outbuildings, among them a double garage, workshop and an indoor golf simulator.

Harlaw House is an exceptional home which is on the market at something of a bargain price.

Two years ago it was at offers over £848,000 – today, selling agent Galbraith is seeking offers over £775,000.
