Broombank has a truly incredible position high up on the hill with magnificent uninterrupted views of what’s known as ‘The Queens View’. ‘The Queens View’ gained its name from Queen Victoria who quickly fell in love with the view of the lower valley
of the Dee which includes a view of the peak of Lochnagar. The view is particularly loved by the royals who find it an unspoiled beauty which has not altered greatly for hundreds of years making it even more remarkable and memorable, and a view which epitomises Aberdeenshire. The original charming
detached cottage has a southerly aspect to fully appreciate the views and was fully refurbished by the present owners in 2016 to create a quaint family home. The accommodation comprises the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen with a multi fuel wood burning stove and there is a separate shower room. Upstairs there is a large area which has previously been used as bedroom space, which leads through to a bedroom. The detached steading building offers great storage and workshop space and lies to the east side of the cottage. Broombank sits in around 0.56 acres in total offering a great amount of garden ground mainly laid to lawn with a kitchen garden.
There is a stone chip drive way which provides parking.

Broombank is a very special and rare opportunity for any potential buyer. The property offers an exceptional home for those buyers looking for a quiet rural family lifestyle. Equally it’s an ideal purchase as a second home, a holiday let business or for retirement in an idyllic location.

Aberdeenshire Council approved full planning permission to demolish the detached steading building and to replace with a detached 5 bedroom dwelling house and garage. The planning permission is in perpetuity as a minimal material start was made.

The current designs were created by the renowned Roderick James Architects whose primary design focus is space, light and sustainability. The design was also customised to maximise the incredible views and be sympathetic to the surrounding
environment. These plans can be viewed on the Aberdeenshire planning web portal under reference APP/2015/0014.
