Find your new home in Newmachar.
Watch any property programme on TV and you will hear at some point that sometimes when buying a new home you have to make some compromises.
But having taken a look at the schedule for this home, Laurelbank, 11 Oldmeldrum Road, Newmachar, it’s hard to see how anyone would have to compromise for it – it seems to have it all.
This traditional five-bedroom, granite-built detached home offers space, style and character both inside and out.
One of its plus points is the fact that is has retained many of its original characteristics with many fine period features including high ceilings with cornicing, ceiling roses, bay windows and traditional fireplaces in many of the rooms.
Each room has been beautifully decorated and has been given its own character and style.
Rooms of note include the elegant drawing room on an open-plan basis with the formal dining room, the family room with a gorgeous working fireplace and the stunning and spacious family kitchen.
On the mezzanine floor, there is a superb family bathroom with striking centrally positioned bath with overhead shower. The opaque windows allow an abundance of natural light to flood the room. And upstairs, there are five bedrooms, three of which feature period fireplaces. And if you need even more space, a floored loft is accessed via a ladder which gives additional storage.
Laurelbank, on the market for offers over £460,000, is approached via a privately owned driveway, which also gives access to the single detached garage.
The side entrance is often used as the main entrance, but the front of the house provides a stunning focal point and the garden grounds that surround it are equally delightful.
With a mix of mature shrubs, hedging, fruit trees, vegetable patch and contemporary decking with raised flowerbeds, the current owners have enjoyed creating the perfect country garden. To the side, there is a woodshed and chicken run which will be left as part of the sale.
The house is located in Newmachar, situated to the north-west of the city and offers a variety of shops for everyday requirements. Primary education is available within Newmachar itself and secondary education is catered for at Dyce Academy. An excellent public transport service runs to and from the city centre and easy access can be gained to the industrial units at Dyce, Bridge of Don and Westhill.
