Joy to behold

Modern meets traditional in this impressive period home in Aberdeen, writes Cheryl Livingstone.

People experience lots of different emotions the first time they visit a potential new home.

Some homes can make you cry with joy, others can make you cry with horror.

When I first looked through the schedule for this house at 5 Marine Terrace, Aberdeen, I couldn’t stop smiling.

Every room is bright and flooded with light and decorated beautifully. It looks like a very happy home and one that the owners take great pride in. I can only imagine how nice an experience it must be to walk around the home, given how enjoyable it is just to look at photographs.

The traditional granite mid-terraced B-listed three-double-bedroom house with double garage was designed by the distinguished 19th-century architect Archibald Simpson.

As well as a stunning decor, the house boasts its own gorgeous features too, in the form of original period details which are dotted throughout the home including feature fireplaces in the lounge and dining room.

Other highlights include the elegant staircase that greets you in the hallway, a lovely lounge where tradition and modern touches are balanced beautifully and highlighted by natural light coming from the bay window, a contemporary kitchen with access to the back garden and three great-sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower unit.

Archibald Simpson, a renowned architect from Aberdeen, designed Marine Terrace in the early 1830s creating
a unique terrace of attractive houses located on
an embankment overlooking Ferryhill.

Ferryhill itself is a prime city centre location with excellent amenities including local shops, nursery and primary schooling and great recreational facilities within Albury Park and outdoor recreational centre, and the renowned Duthie Park with its Winter Gardens is only a short distance away.

The city centre is only some 10 minutes’ walk from the property and regular public transport is readily available.

The subjects enjoy easy access to the business centres to the south of the city and Aberdeen bus and rail stations are also only a short distance away.
