Learney Mill is a Category ‘B’ listed former grain mill dating back to 1812, which has been completely transformed into a wonderful family home.

Hilary Murray of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “A most appealing feature of the Mill is whilst offering a generous amount of living space for any growing family, the configuration allows for scope to use some of the rooms as a separate self-contained annex if desired. The grounds and the setting are absolutely delightful and the purchaser will enjoy great privacy and tranquillity while still being within each reach of Aberdeen.”

The original mill wheel remains as a feature on the exterior wall and is partly used as a log store.

On the ground floor, the dining kitchen has plenty of space to relax and entertain guests, with good views of the garden. There is also a useful utility room and WC. The enclosed courtyard has a Perspex roof providing integrated access to the garage and large workshop.

The comfortable sitting room has an exposed granite wall, wooden flooring and a cast iron wood-burning stove which makes for a beautiful focal point.

On the first floor is the principal bedroom and a further double bedroom with views over the front garden and countryside beyond. There is a large family bathroom and a superb family room, which is light and spacious. Also on the first floor are a wet room, a kitchenette and a games room which could be put to a multitude of uses.

On the second floor are three further bedrooms.

The mature landscaped grounds of about half an acre are mostly laid to grass with paved pathways, mature trees and flowering borders, while Learney Burn offers a most attractive outlook and provides a haven for wildlife.

There is also a gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles. The integral garage and workshop have power and light with double timber doors to the front. There are also two timber sheds / kennels.

Learney Mill is located on the outskirts of the picturesque Royal Deeside village of Torphins. Offering the tranquillity of village life, but within easy commuting distance of Aberdeen (21 miles) Torphins  enjoys lovely views of the surrounding hills and is an ideal location to enjoy outdoor activities.

Learney Mill is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £530,000.
