At the hub of a family home on Deeside

A picture-perfect home awaits one lucky family on Deeside, writes Cheryl Livingstone

While flicking through schedules you will see the word ‘hub’ mentioned quite frequently.

To me, that word means a place where most of the activity takes place, the busiest place of a home and the one most frequented by the owners.

Sometimes it’s not clear in a home where the ‘hub’ might be. But at Broomfield in Lumphanan, you really can’t miss it.

The magnificent, creatively designed area that includes the dining kitchen and family room is open plan and offers bright, spacious living space.

With a wide range of oak-fronted base and drawer units with granite work surfaces and splashbacks, the kitchen was designed by Cumbria Kitchens and is also fitted with an integral dishwasher and two deep aluminium sinks with integral drainer. A central island provides further storage with base units and deep drawers.

Designed with safety in mind, there is a spacious walk way from the dining area to the family room without crossing the kitchen area. Integral to the island is an electric fan oven and combination microwave oven. A fitted table offers space for informal dining while a large walk-in shelved larder offers further storage space.

The magnificent family room runs alongside, with a cathedral-style ceiling with modern track lighting, glazed wall and French doors to the garden. The windows afford panoramic views and are fitted with Venetian blinds. A further contemporary feature within this room is a spiral staircase leading to the upper floor.

It’s easy to see why anyone would want to spend time in this area and being both beautiful and practical, it is sure to be the hub of this home.

Other great features of this house, which is on the market for offers over £550,000, include the south-facing lounge with a large picture window affording superb views of the garden and surrounding countryside.

Other attractive features include an open fire and master bedroom with its own walk-in dressing area and en-suite bathroom with a “wet area” shower.

The four other bedrooms are equally impressive as is the large study and den.

Outside, the south-facing garden extends to approximately 0.4acres while a sweeping driveway leads to a double garage. A sheltered paved patio area accessed from the family room has the unique benefit of surround sound speaker system, while the beautifully maintained tree house with slide and climbing ladder are included in the sale.

Broomfield lies just under five miles from Aboyne and a short drive to the thriving village of Lumphanan, and is easily commutable to Banchory, Westhill, Kingswells and Aberdeen city.

The village of Lumphanan has a range of local shops, a post office, golf course, local pub and primary school, while there is also a regular bus service to and from Aberdeen.

In Aboyne there is a wider selection of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities, with secondary education available at Aboyne Academy.
