Located in one of the city’s most sought-after streets, this granite gem of a property boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, four receptions rooms as well as its own gym.

Offers over £995,000 with Savills.

81 High Street, Aberdeen

Architectural allure: If you think this home is beautiful on the outside, wait until you see the inside.

Built by Hugh McLean, the chief magistrate in Old Aberdeen in the late 18th Century, this Georgian townhouse certainly has the law of attraction.

Set out over three floors, this architectural abode also has a garden flat in the basement floor which would lend itself to a “granny flat” or could be rented out.

Inside, the property is perfect for growing families with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and five receptions rooms.

Offers over £790,000 with Taggart, Meil, Mathers Solicitors.

Offers over £925,000 with A.C. Morrison & Richards LLP.

The Firs, 70 Beltie Road, Torphins, Banchory

Victorian gem: With hidden doors and period features, this superb home is waiting to be explored.

Inspired by the properties he saw on the outskirts of Toronto, Aberdeen master mason John Morgan and his brother-in-law, the renowned Victorian architect Alexander Ellis, created this masterpiece of a home in 1890.

Ageing just like a fine wine, this five-bedroomed, detached Victorian home, is brimming with elegance, grace and beauty.

At the heart of the home is an impressive dining kitchen while other key features include a sauna, library and a hidden door in the wood panelling on the landing which leads up to an attic room.

Offers over £620,000 with Aberdein Considine.

Lower Inchallon Farmhouse, Elgin

Sun soaked Even during winter you can still catch the rays in the sun lounge.

Moving house can be quite a daunting prospect but what better place to start a new chapter in your life than in this enchanting farmhouse which has its very own library.

With 2.96 acres of garden grounds, a range of useful outbuildings (including dog kennels), a paddock and attractive and flexible accommodation over two floors, escaping to the country has never looked so good.

Guide price £550,000 with Galbraith.

Sandwood House, Nairn

Regal affair: Who doesn’t love a four poster bed?
