Newbigging is located around 3 miles from
the town of Alford and is located in the quaint
hamlet of Whitehouse. A short drive takes you
to Alford, with a wealth of amenities including
a health centre, vet surgery, large Co-op
supermarket, shops, bank, post office, filling
station, hotels along with a dry ski slope and
transport museum. On the edge of Alford is
Haughton Country Park, a park with an array
of activities available including, children’s
play areas, Christmas Childrens Train, walks
and trails along with a putting green and
camp site. Regular bus services are available
from Alford with links to Aberdeen, Westhill,
Kintore and Kemnay. Schooling is provided
at Tough Primary School which is less than a
mile from Whitehouse and Alford Academy, a
new community campus which houses the new
primary and secondary schools, a swimming
pool, theatre, library and community café.
Aberdeen is some 22 miles, and provides all the
leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities
expected from the oil capital of Europe. It also
provides good transport links with a mainline
railway station and is host to an airport
providing both domestic and international
flights. Aberdeen Harbour also provides ferry
link to Shetland and Orkney.

Newbigging is a traditional detached
farmhouse enjoying a quiet countryside
location in the small hamlet of Whitehouse.
With a high degree of privacy and a quiet
secluded location, Newbigging sits in approx.
1.9 acres bound by beautiful Aberdeenshire
countryside at all sides. The property offers
exceptionally spacious accommodation and
was sympathetically extended in 2009 to
create additional family living space and the
current owners have continued to maintain the
property to a very high standard. Traditional
features that you would expect from a property
of this age have been retained creating
character and charm, yet modern features have
been introduced to meet the needs of family
living. There is an extensive amount of steading
buildings located within the grounds, which
we understand offer excellent development
potential, and the garden ground continues
round the property creating a vast amount of
outdoor space & gardens.

The main reception hall has stairs leading to the
upper level and provides individual access to
most rooms on the ground floor. This hall also
has a generous storage cupboard. To one side
you will find the main sitting room, which has
a large bay window with a southerly aspect,
original solid wood flooring and a multi-fuel
stove. To the other side of the reception hall,
you will find a further front facing lounge,
again with the impressive bay window and
an open fire. This room is extremely versatile
and can also be used as a formal dining room.
Continuing through the hall towards the rear,
there is a double bedroom located to the side
and a shower room with sky light window. The
extremely impressive family dining kitchen has
been carefully designed by the present owners
and has been fitted with a high quality ‘Lethenty
Mill’ kitchen. There is an abundance of storage
& working space and a breakfast bar provides
space for informal dining. Given the size of this
impressive kitchen, it creates a superb ‘hub of
the home’ for families. Leading through from
the kitchen is a convenient utility room with
space for utility appliances, additional storage
& a door leading outside. Finally leading down
from the kitchen by a couple of steps is the
exceptional sun room, which was an addition
to the property by the present owners. An
extremely striking room with vaulted ceiling,
large windows and a door leading outside. This
is a very versatile room which would be perfect
as additional family living space or alternatively
as a further dining room.
Returning to the main reception hall and
continuing up the stairs, you will firstly find
the master bedroom overlooking the rear.
This is a large double bedroom with excellent
storage facilities and adjacent is the main
family bathroom. This bathroom has a five
piece suite, including a large bath, and a
separate corner shower cubicle. Bedroom two
& bedroom 3 both enjoy a bright southerly
outlook to the front of the property. These are
equally spacious double bedrooms with built
in storage facilities. Lastly you will find a box
room, which is ideal for storage facilities or
possibly as an area to work from home.

The good track road leads to the property from
the main road and there is plenty of space for
parking at the entrance of the property. The
ground in total extends to approx. 1.9 acres
and to the south side are the charming gardens
with mature trees. To the east side is an area
of land laid to grass which could easily be
enclosed to accommodate animals. There is a
detached stone built garage/shed.

The two detached steading buildings lie to the West side of the house. For the current owners these buildings provide a super amount of storage space; however the possibilities for these buildings are endless. For those with equestrian interests,
they could be converted into stabling but of particular note is the development potential. Although planning permission has never been applied for, it is understood that the buildings have
potential for conversion into two single, or multiple, dwellings. Any potential purchaser would require carrying out their own enquiries in this regard.
