With significantly lower prices than homes in Aberdeen, this corner of the region can give home hunters a lot more for their money.

Take for example Sona Tulach, Happy Hillock in Rathen, just five miles south of Fraserburgh.

Less than an hour’s drive from the Granite City, the spacious five-bedroom home is now on the market for offers over £299,000 and if you act fast, it could be your new home.

The detached house is perfect for growing families or those simply looking for a new adventure in the thriving region of Aberdeenshire – recently named the best rural place to live in a survey by the Bank of Scotland.

The house has a very modern interior and is styled in pleasant neutral tones with oak flooring completing the crisp and clean look.

At the heart of the home is the contemporary open-plan kitchen, dining and family area with plenty of storage and room for formal and everyday dining with its breakfast bar and space for a good-sized dining table. Its appliances, including an oven, hob and grill, will be included in the sale.

Across the hall is another sitting room with a large window and plenty of room for comfortable soft furnishings and free-standing furniture.

The master bedroom is also on the ground floor, at the back of the home. With an en suite, built-in wardrobes and dressing area, this has all the makings of a dream bedroom.

The remaining four bedrooms are just as spacious with room for double beds or any of them could become a games den or study if desired.

Outside, the garden is sheltered and has a decking area on which to enjoy the warmer months as well as a handy clothes-drying area.
