Set in the heart of the exclusive Daviot Estate, Craigshannoch Mansions is an outstanding building which was formerly the hospital pavilion built in the 1930’s and designed by the George Bennett Mitchell in an Arts & Craft style. The building as a whole has a commanding southerly position with open views towards Bennachie and throughout 2009 the building was sympathetically converted into three beautiful homes with an incredible amount of attention to detail and care. Throughout the conversion the focus remained on retaining the endless original features yet introducing high quality modern luxuries to meet the expectations of current family living.
3 Craigshannoch Mansions occupies the West side of the mansion and continues over three floors offering approx. 411sqm of living space. The impressive entrance sets the tone perfectly, with solid oak flooring, high grand ceilings, the original wood doors and the solid oak original staircase to the first floor. The accommodation flows beautifully thereon in and continues through to impressive and exceptionally bright public rooms creating versatility and flexibility. The striking large windows maximise the bright southerly aspect throughout the home and the high ceilings create an endless feeling of space. The formal lounge is a stunning room with a bespoke solid granite fireplace surround with inset stove and is on semi open plan with the formal dining room. This room leads through to the sun room which retains the original circular sky light windows, fitted with new double glazing units, and a frontage of windows providing an outlook over the southerly garden grounds. The additional sitting room is completely versatile and also leads through to the sun room. The luxurious dining kitchen, fitted by Laing’s of Inverurie, is an exceptional working, storage and dining space for families and has a separate walk in larder room and further utility room. Also located on the ground level is an electronics room with patch panel for computer networking throughout the house and also provides storage space. A cloakroom with Villeroy & Boch suite completes the accommodation on the ground floor.
As you continue to the upper level, passing a striking stained glass window on the stairs, on the first level you will find four very spacious double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a superb corner position, door out to the balcony terrace and a luxurious ensuite shower room with Villeroy & Boch suite, Matki shower unit and under floor heating. Bedroom 2 also has an ensuite shower room and would make for a charming guests bedroom. Bedroom 3 & bedroom 4 are equally spacious double bedrooms and the main family bathroom continues the high quality standard with Villeroy & Boch suite, Matki shower unit and under floor heating.
Continuing to the top floor, there is a study and an exceptionally large room which extends the width of the property. The options for this room are endless, including an impressive fifth bedroom, activity or hobby room, or it is believed possible to create two bedrooms and further bathroom, subject to the necessary consents.
