This imposing granite house was originally built in 1895 for a local ship builder who demanded impeccable quality and design. The property has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard while retaining its original character and period features. There are six reception rooms and five bedrooms.
Hannah Christiansen of Galbraith said: “This is a very rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional house which offers both privacy and space, a highly sought after location and Victorian design, all beautifully presented throughout.
“Temora is in a very private situation in Cults, tucked away along a private drive and surrounded by its lovely mature grounds. Despite the privacy and seclusion, the property is only a few minutes from the centre of Aberdeen and the International Airport, giving easy access to other UK cities and worldwide locations, while the calm and breathtaking scenery of the Cairngorms National Park is also within an hour’s drive. For families, the accommodation is generous, versatile and all finished to a very high standard with the advantage of being within the catchment for Cults Academy and Aberdeen’s other well regarded private and independent schools.”
The accommodation extends to over 370 square metres including: reception hall, sitting room, music room, TV room, conservatory, dining room, cinema room, dining kitchen, butler’s pantry, boot room, master bedroom with en suite bathroom, four further double bedrooms and two shower rooms.
Of particular note there are six reception rooms, including a light and bright sitting room with windows overlooking the garden and a wood burning stove for the winter months. The conservatory offers lovely views over the garden and French doors opening to the patio. The kitchen has bespoke Edwin Loxley cabinetry, synonymous with the highest quality of craftsmanship, complemented by an Aga range cooker and ample space for family dining.
There is scope to create an annexe on the ground floor for multi-generational living, if desired.
The master bedroom is a wonderful retreat with a window seat, high quality fitted wardrobes and with an attractive en suite bathroom. There are four further full sized double bedrooms, all beautifully presented, bright and spacious.
The plot extends to around 1.75 acres in all. The well maintained garden grounds surround the house, providing the privacy and tranquillity that are rarely available in this location. There are mature trees, shrubs, fruit trees and rolling lawns offering space for wildlife and birds, whilst a sheltered patio area is ideal for outdoor dining. The former traditional coach house has been converted to both garage and workshop space at the rear.

Temora is in the catchment area for the highly sought after Cults Primary and Cults Academy and school buses for Aberdeen’s private schools run from the end of the drive.
