Located in Ballater, this six-bedroom period property is certainly like no other.

Believed to have been originally built in 1870 as a manse, Craggan boasts an array of spectacular rooms complete with elevated views over the Dee Valley.

Right from the moment you first step in the front door it’s clear that the Victorian elegance and traditional features have been carefully maintained over the years, while careful modernisation has allowed the property to transform into a fantastic 21st century home.

The bright and airy entrance hall provides access to all downstairs accommodation, including a rarity in modern homes – a drawing room.

Here, guests can relax in the generous space, with wonderful tartan-style wallpaper and statement chandeliers reminding you that this is one of the most grand properties in Royal Deeside.

Adding to the room’s charm is an open fire, making it the perfect spot to cosy up with a good book or spend quality time with the family.

The fabulous L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room can also be found on the ground floor, providing plenty of space for a large dining table and with access to the rear garden.

Benefiting from ample worktop and unit space, as well as an array of integrated appliances including an AGA, your move should be smooth thanks to this modern country kitchen.

A further dining room is also on offer for more formal gatherings, with traditional ceiling beams and double aspect windows.

This space is currently being utilised as a games room, but could be easily adapted to a kids’ playroom or perhaps an office space.

Completing the downstairs accommodation is a generously proportioned sitting room and family shower room.

On the first floor there are four impressive double rooms on offer, with a further mezzanine level containing two further bedrooms and a gym.

Each room benefits from large windows and high ceilings, providing a feeling of space and light.

One of the standout rooms, however, is the family bathroom.

Featuring period-style shower and wash-hand basin, it effortlessly blends with the age of the property while next door a marble-style shower room offers a modern alternative.

Outside, the house is set within its own private grounds of two-and-half acres, providing plenty of room for outdoor entertainment and space for the kids to roam.

There is a sizeable outbuilding, housing a double garage and additional storage facilities, as well as two further multi-purpose rooms on the upper floor.

There are plenty of amenities in the town of Ballater with Aberdeen city about 40 miles away.

Offers should be made in the region of more than £900,000.
