With character and period features galore, Derranbank is a property you won’t forget in a hurry.
Located in Clola just outside Peterhead, the five-bedroom property offers a truly wonderful combination of old and new.
Built in 1867, the period home has been lovingly upgraded and sympathetically brought into the 21st century, making it the ideal package for a buyer seeking both character and comfort.
Approached by a long private driveway lined with trees, right from the outset Derranbank provides a fabulous welcome.
The formal entrance porch leads to a spacious hallway, which is full of original period features including pitch pine doors and skirtings, traditional coving and picture rails.
The kitchen is a stylish space in which any keen cooks will enjoy spending time.
You won’t struggle for unit or worktop space either, and as well as a large central island and breakfast bar, the room comes complete with all the modern appliances you would expect.
However, the heart of the home is clearly the large open-plan family room and dining area.
This space is incredibly versatile and offers plenty of room for both relaxing and entertaining.
You’ll be eager to have guests round to show off the space, but if you prefer a more formal area to host dinner parties there is also a separate dining room on offer.
And with another cosy sitting room complete with a traditional fireplace, there’s no shortage of places to put your feet up.
The ground floor of the property also offers a separate guest wing with a double bedroom and en suite shower room.
A sizeable utility area and cloakroom complete this floor.
Upstairs you will find the four remaining bedrooms, all of which are a generous size.
The master suite, in particular, comes complete with an en suite and walk-in wardrobe.
A family bathroom finished to a very high standard completes the accommodation.
But the impressive amount of space on offer doesn’t stop there, as outside the property’s grounds cover well over two acres of land.
The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and trees.
There is also a lovely south-facing summerhouse complete with a wood-burning stove, making it the ideal spot to enjoy the countryside views whatever the weather.
A large paddock and stables area has been well maintained along with an equestrian sand school and barn with a van port.
The area of Clola itself is a small hamlet about 10 miles from the busy town of Peterhead, and approximately 40 minutes’ drive from Aberdeen.
The property is in a rural spot with lovely views of the surrounding countryside, yet a variety of schools and other amenities are not far away.
Offers should be made in the region of over £550,000.
