A gorgeous family home with lots of land and lovely country views – what more could you ask for?
A converted steading is fast becoming one of the more popular conversions nowadays.
And with so many of them around, it can be hard to decide which one you like the most. There will be some, though, that have that something special that makes them stand out from the crowd.
Pinewood Steading at Netherley, near Stonehaven, is one of those properties. Its unique selling point? Well, for offers over £525,000, you get a large four-bedroom steading that has been beautifully converted – in other words, all the hard work has been done – in a stunning location surrounded by gorgeous country views, plus it comes with just over seven acres of land.
Pinewood, converted in 1996, has many features of note, including exposed granite walls in the kitchen and dining room, a multi-fuel stove in the sitting room and large windows throughout.
As well as four great-sized bedrooms, it also has two en-suite shower rooms and a further bathroom. Anyone who has had to listen to their kids fight over who gets in the bathroom first will know how much of a highlight this really is.
Outside, there is a beautiful, colourful, mature garden that is a wildlife haven, with a walled patio, orchard and a new tarred drive.
To the south of the steading, there is a tranquil, enclosed courtyard that is safe for children
and animals. And to the north, there are five stock-proof fenced paddocks extending to approximately six acres.
Pinewood Steading is located about 10 miles from Aberdeen and is within easy reach of the B979 Netherley road and the A90. There is an excellent, recently built primary school nearby at Lairhillock, while secondary education is at Mackie Academy in Stonehaven.
The location also has easy access to Durris Forest, with miles of tracks for walking, cycling or hacking.
