Cheryl Livingstone checks out this grand home in one of the most desirable parts of Aberdeen
Cults is home to an abundance of beautiful and impressive properties, ranging from traditional period styles to more contemporary new builds.
Glendevon at 519 North Deeside Road, is definitely at the top of that list. This five-bedroom pink granite semi-detached villa resonates style and elegance from the moment you lay eyes on it.
It definitely has kerb appeal and as it sits on an elevated site, you can enjoy stunning views of south Deeside. The house has been sympathetically upgraded over the years by the current owners who have clearly been careful to retain most of the period features, including an attractive cornice in the lounge, natural pitch-pine joinery, leaded stained glass windows and the fabulous oak panelling in the dining room.
Other highlights include a modern kitchen and bathroom and terraced garden with external decking area for outside dining. There is also a substantial double garage with large workshop/studio attached, which could lend itself to a variety of uses.
My favourite room, which I am sure a family would get great use of, is the large “den”, currently used as a cinema room. It’s a fantastic space that could be used for a number of purposes including a gym, home office or playroom.
The house is on the market for offers over £848,000, and also offers plenty of off-street parking on tarred and pattern-paved driveway for several cars. The lower terraced garden also has a gate leading onto the former Deeside Railway Line.
Cults is a highly desirable suburb benefiting from excellent primary and secondary schools, a range of local sporting amenities including an 18-hole golf course, bowling and tennis clubs, cycle trails, walks and fishing. It is also within easy reach of the city centre, trading and commercial estates and Aberdeen International Airport.
