It can sometimes be difficult making your house stand out on the property market, especially if it is one of a few houses with a similar design.
So how do you make sure that a prospective buyer goes for your home over any others? Well the owners of 10 Park House Close in Tarland don’t need to have any worries on that front as their home definitely stands out from the crowd.
The exterior design is definitely impressive in its own right – as are the other five similar villas in the development constructed in 2007 by Alan Grant Grampian Ltd.
But it is what the current owners have done with the inside of this five-bedroom home that will make it hard for any home hunter to miss the opportunity of owning this.
It is clear from the moment you step through the door that this is very much a warm and welcoming family home, one that has been well maintained by the owners and made to look its best.
Each room has its own style and character and yet they are all linked with a theme, most obviously the quality and care in each space.
My favourite has to be the amazing and extremely spacious lounge which is no doubt the heart of this home. The dome-style ceiling and bow windows, giving access to south and westerly panoramic views, accentuate the incredible scale of this room and allow all the natural light that floods in to bounce around everywhere.
Creating a lovely and cosy focal point is a wood-burning stove on a granite hearth while french doors connect the inside with the out and lead to a front facing patio. Double Georgian doors give access to the splendid kitchen fitted with a wide range of high-gloss units, opaque-fronted cabinets, stainless-steel splash backs and a blend of granite and solid-oak worktops.
The kitchen would not look out of place in a five-star hotel and is filled with lots of great features including a central island and breakfast bar, a porthole window and french doors leading to an alfresco area tucked away at the side of the house, ideal to relax and enjoy a summer breakfast.
In the west wing of the house, on the market for offers over £490,000, you will find the elegant master bedroom with oak flooring. It is a great space to enjoy the rural panoramic views from the wide-angled bow windows and also has a walk-in dressing room and en suite facilities.
The house is surrounded by around one third of an acre of land, mainly laid to lawn, and also has a loc-bloc drive and large parking with turning area. A further double wooden garage sits just left of the drive. There is a double integral garage with a utility area fitted with units, double sink and space to accommodate free-standing appliances.
At the bottom of the garden, there is access to paths which take you into the village or one of the Tarland Walks.
Tarland is a picturesque rural village around 30 miles from Aberdeen. There are a number of shops and two hotels in the village itself. There is a local primary school with secondary education at nearby Aboyne for which a bus service is provided.
