Property description

Superb south facing site with planning permission for Drumoak Tourist Centre development and spacious detached house.

Description

The sale provides a unique opportunity to purchase a well located site with planning permission for a tourism based development and an existing four/five bedroom home. The development has been carefully planned to preserve the privacy of the house, which lies at the end of the access road and is secluded but not isolated, beyond the proposed chalets.

Drumoak Tourist Centre
Planning permission has been granted by Aberdeenshire Council (ref APP/2011/3852) for the erection of three chalets, each with three bedrooms, and a reception office/store to the north east of the existing house. It is a rare opportunity to provide a purpose built facility with accommodation for tourists and holiday makers in an area with an abundance of attractions. Full details of the proposal and business plan are available on request from Savills.

Linardon House
The accommodation is on two floors and has a versatile layout. The property has been thoughtfully decorated with light colours, allowing an abundance of light. The open plan sun room and kitchen provide both a focal point for family life and an excellent space for entertaining, with masses of light from the sun room’s glass roof. The adjacent sitting room and dining room are open plan, in an L shape. There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, served by a bathroom with a corner Jacuzzi bath and a shower room with a large steam room off. Upstairs are a family room or large double bedroom with sweeping views of the countryside and a single bedroom.

A private tarmac drive leads up to the house. Adjacent to the house are two double garages with power and a car port which can accommodate a 4x4 vehicle. There is a decked area for al fresco dining with views over the surrounding countryside.

Location

Linardon is set on the eastern outskirts of the village of Drumoak, between Aberdeen to the east and Banchory, the gateway to Royal Deeside, to the west. The site has a leafy green location, sheltered and screened by mature trees, in a tranquil setting surrounded by meadows and woodland and with open southerly views over farmland to the Durris Hills. The Deeside Way is within in a few hundred metres and the River Dee is within easy reach.

Drumoak village provides essential local amenities including a shop serving everyday needs, a pub, church, hairdresser, park and a bowling green. Drumoak Primary School is also within the village. For secondary schooling the highly regarded Banchory Academy and The International School of Aberdeen at Pitfodels are both close by. Banchory, 8 miles to the west, has a good range of shops, sports centres, a swimming pool and a golf course. Peterculter, less than 3 miles away, offers a range of conveniences including a BP garage with a Marks & Spencer food store, schooling, Kippie Lodge Country Club, golf course, church, restaurants, medical centre, chemist, banks, supermarket, post office, library, hairdresser and local shopping. The Garthdee Retail Park at Bridge of Dee offers extensive shopping facilities. Aberdeen is within easy commuting distance and offers all the facilities expected of a major regional centre. The property will benefit from the new Aberdeen Bypass, improving access to Aberdeen Airport and to routes south.
