For just over £500,000, you could bag a host of great properties.
Don’t be fooled by the name of this property – it is only called St Katherines but isn’t located in the Aberdeenshire village near Oldmeldrum. It can, in fact, be found on the outskirts of Aboyne.
Its location is one of its many selling points, sitting on a superbly elevated position where you can enjoy views towards Aboyne Loch and the surrounding countryside.
St Katherines is a beautifully presented four-bedroom detached Victorian villa which offers substantial family living and retains many original features.
There are many delightful rooms inside that are perfect for entertaining and spending time with loved ones. The light and airy lounge is a particular favourite of mine. From here, you get great views towards the loch and it leads to the sitting room which has a feature fireplace.
Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms and a further study/single bedroom. The luxury family bathroom has been refurbished recently.
Also included in the sale is an entirely separate cottage – St Katherines Cottage, to be exact. It has an open-plan lounge and dining area, good-sized kitchen and two double bedrooms and shower room on the upper floor.
St Katherines and adjacent cottage are set in extensive, well-maintained mature garden grounds.
Aboyne is situated approximately 30 miles from Aberdeen. The village has excellent amenities which include a primary and secondary school and community/sports centre. There are a number of outdoor pursuits and the Aberdeen Water Ski Club situated at the nearby Aboyne Loch. The beautiful surrounding countryside provides numerous facilities for fishing and pony trekking, and Glen Tanar Country Park provides excellent walks. During the winter months, ski-ing at Glenshee and the Lecht are within easy reach.
