It’s time to head back to school in Fyvie with this impressive detached property.
The Gables is a four-bedroom former school house located in the picturesque area of Steinmanhill near Fyvie in Aberdeenshire.
Since its conversion into a dwelling house, both the property and its grounds have been lovingly maintained, with the home itself offering countless period features.
The well-proportioned entrance hall has seen many children’s feet cross its threshold over the years, and the owners have kept the traditional look with the sweeping staircase and original panelled doors.
The lounge is of a generous size and comes complete with high skirting boards and intricate ceiling cornicing sure to be a talking point for visitors.
Views of the immaculate front garden are welcome through the large window, keeping the room bright and airy.
However it’s the spacious family kitchen which will be the heart of the home.
This L-shaped space offers ample room for dining furniture too so you’ll be able to chat to guests as you cook, and there is plenty of unit and worktop space on offer.
The family area of this room also features a fabulous wood-burning stove.
For more formal occasions a separate dining room is also on offer.
Located off the kitchen is a rear hallway which gives access to the school hall which is of generous proportions and could be utilised in many different ways with a bit of upgrading and modernisation.
Completing the downstairs accommodation is a single bedroom, utility room and large family bathroom.
Three further bedrooms can be found on the upper floor, all of which are a good size.
Both front-facing rooms also benefit from stunning panoramic views over countryside which might make getting up in the morning that bit easier.
The gardens are the jewel in this property’s crown and have been lovingly maintained by the owners.
The walled garden to the side of the property has been mainly laid to lawn, and offers a lovely spot to catch some rays this summer.
A secluded patio area is the ideal place for outdoor entertaining, while to the front of the property is a large lawn with fruit trees and a vegetable patch.
A large driveway leads to an outbuilding which is split into three sections; a double car port, workshop, open shed and garage.
Fyvie itself is a lovely little village with a wonderful community on offer, but the buzz of Aberdeen is only 30 miles away. The larger town of Turriff is also just a short drive away where there are plenty of amenities on offer.
Offers should be made in the region of more than £300,000. Contact Aberdein Considine on 01467 621263.
