Get in quick if you want to own this quaint cottage in Ballater, writes Cheryl Livingstone.
There’s nothing worse than finding your perfect home only to be told someone has got in there before you.
And now when the market is at a particularly busy time you need to be quick off the mark to ensure that doesn’t happen to you.
It’s especially difficult with a home like this one – Logiemar Cottage, 19 Albert Road, Ballater – when it is bound to appeal to people in all walks of life.
As well as appealing to both first-time buyers and those looking to downsize, it could also work as a lovely holiday home.
This charming two bedroom detached cottage is deceptively large having been extended to the rear in 2011 and now boasts a spacious kitchen and bathroom.
While its traditional exterior has been retained, inside has been given a more contemporary feel. The combination is one of the best I’ve seen.
Highlights include an inviting sitting room with colourful decor in a traditional, yet modern theme, creating a warm ambience along with the multi fuel burner set within a granite-style ingle nook on a slate hearth, a bespoke kitchen, fitted with oak units, solid oak worktops and display shelves along with matching breakfast bar and various appliances and a French door with side window leading out to the enclosed, south-facing courtyard with patio area.
For offers over £199,000, you better get in quick to scoop this beauty.
The cottage is located in the village of Ballater, the south-eastern gateway to the Cairngorms National Park. It is set in magnificent scenery and is within easy reach of Balmoral, the Scottish holiday home of the royal family.
The village offers a range of local amenities, including a variety of shops, award-winning restaurants and hotels and primary schooling. Secondary education is at nearby Aboyne.
