This was my and my children's first home for over 10 years and due to its really spacious nature you could not have a better place to stay and enjoy gatherings with family and friends. We are lucky enough to be the properties only second owners since it was built from Aberdeens' famous granite just after the second world war ended. The only previous owner was the architect and son of the builder who built these lovely homes. His wife informed me when I purchased the house 13 years ago that he selected this great corner plot to be their family home, which gets plenty sun in the garden for most of the day and overlooks the beautiful and tranquil Johnston Gardens from the back of the house, conservatory and two large decking areas which between them get the sun during the whole day in the summer.
Significant renovations and updating has taken place to modernise including; fully rewired, new boiler and radiator system, double glazed doors and windows throughout, new raised conservatory, kitchen/dining room extended, large multi-fuel stove, bedrooms enlarged, new ensuite and cloakrooms formed and new family bathroom installed. New carpets throughout. And renovated the swimming pool (NOTE 1: the pool will not be operational or accessible to guests).
Being at the end of a very quiet and open spaced street and at the cul-de-sac there is minimal passing traffic and only cars you see are those of our lovely neighbours. My kids grew up in this house and it is as safe a road as you could get for them to be around given the very low traffic volume.
