Offers in the region of £360,000
An excellent opportunity to stamp your own taste on a wonderfully spacious, near completed Steading Conversion situated north of Aberdeen, near the village of Hatton which is just off the A90 between Ellon and Peterhead.
The property is located just a five minute drive to the beautiful beach at Cruden Bay with its championship golf course, a 20 minute drive to the Trump International golf links development and an easy 30 minute drive into Aberdeen Airport.
The Steading itself is set in a plot of approximately two acres of land, which includes a paddock.
Accessed by its own driveway the property offers a secluded but not isolated environment and enjoys panoramic views of the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Work to date
Conversion was begun in late 2008 and all significant exterior works have been completed (i.e. it is wind and water-tight) with bespoke hardwood windows and doors fitted to finish all the new openings.
Internally it is at first fix stage: under-floor heating is fitted throughout with stud walls in place.
Boarding out and wall / ceiling insulation are partly completed with materials on site included in sale price.
The property has been prepared for a ground source heat pump to provide the under-floor heating and hot water.
All external drainage with septic and rainwater harvesting tanks is complete. An oil tank is in place to provide the option of an oil fired AGA in the kitchen.
Electricity is connected but water needs to be brought in from the mains (cost estimate for this is circa. £1200 inc. Scottish Water connection fee).
The current internal layout comprises four generous double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms, a large kitchen / diner with an adjoining pantry, a spacious utility room, a downstairs master bathroom and further toilet / shower room, an office and finally an open plan lounge / dining room.
The upstairs landing has plenty of room for seating to allow the view from the stairwell window to be fully enjoyed.
There is an attached garage with an adjoining plant room (to accommodate the ground source heating equipment and tanks) and a further detached outbuilding currently used as a garage/store.
The project was put on hold about 18 months ago as our employment dictated we move to the Netherlands. It was hoped that this would be temporary and that we could complete the project within a reasonable period but the assignment is ongoing for the foreseeable future.
