Glenburnie is a fine period Grade C Listed property, dating back to the mid 1700s and stands proudly amongst beautiful garden grounds and woodlands of around 1.6 acres. Formerly the Manse of Maryculter Kirk, this stunning traditional home has exceptionally large accommodation over two floors and retains many fine period features including the high ceilings, open fireplaces, traditional internal solid wood doors and flooring to name a few. The property was more recently extended by the present owner to create further accommodation with a characterful turret feature. Glenburnie has an imposing entrance with stone pillars and a long drive way with the house in view at the end, flanked by rolling lawns, mature trees and colourful daffodils in the spring months. The extensive gardens continue to the rear with a South West position to create a high degree of privacy and plentiful outdoor space.
Glenburnie has an entrance one would expect from such property, with beautiful entrance vestibule and hall way. There are three versatile public rooms on the ground level, including the sitting room with open fire, formal dining room and family room, both of which have multi fuel stoves. The open plan kitchen and dining room opens out to the beautiful gardens and there is a useful utility & laundry room. Also on the ground floor is a study and shower room.
As one continues upstairs there is the master bedroom with ensuite shower room, five further double bedrooms, shower room and an excellent walk in loft storage room.
Ground Floor: Vestibule, entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, family room, study, dining kitchen, shower room & utility.
First Floor: Bedroom with ensuite shower room, double bedroom 2, double bedroom 3, double bedroom 4, double bedroom 5, bedroom 6 & shower room.
The entire gardens of Glenburnie extend to around 1.6 acres, with the house enjoying a central position amongst the grounds. Bound by a combination of traditional stone dykes and beech hedging, there is a patio area lying closest to the house at the rear which continues into large rolling lawns with a scattering of charming trees and mature colourful shrubs. Beyond the main lawn is a wooded area to the west side and a charming cottage garden which would make for an excellent kitchen garden.
There is a large parking area to the front of the house and a detached double garage with wood store.

Glenburnie provides a great opportunity to reside in a peaceful and tranquil rural setting with all the advantages of the country lifestyle, yet only a few miles from the city centre. Located only 1.7 miles away is the new Aberdeen bypass, the AWPR (Aberdeen Wester Peripheral Route), which gives extremely easy access to both the North & South of Aberdeen. Given the propertys location a wide range of leisure pursuits are close to hand including golf courses at Deeside and Peterculter, Salmon and Sea Trout fishing on the River Dee and scenic country walks including those in the nearby Forestry Commission Woodlands. The property itself is set in the catchment area for Lairhillock Primary School and Cults Academy while there are also a number of private schools in the city including Robert Gordons College, St Margarets School for Girls, Albyn School and the International School Aberdeen in Cults.
