Farmyards is a link-detached traditional stone steading conversion located within the small, charming hamlet of Milton of Potterton. Bound by the Potterton Burn to the east and rolling countryside to the west, the property sits in around 0.49 acres offering a quiet, countryside lifestyle on the edge of Aberdeenshire. Despite its desirable country location, Farmyards is within particularly easy access of many amenities with Dyce, Bridge of Don and Ellon less than 15 minute drive away. The accommodation includes an entrance vestibule, which in turn gives access to the utility room and large open plan kitchen & dining room. This appealing room is the heart of the home with the kitchen and dining area being separated by the breakfast bar and there is a door leading out to the courtyard garden. The lounge is a particularly large and bright dual aspect room, with a wood burning stove and picture window, perfectly capturing the open views across the countryside. The large master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and there are two further very spacious double bedrooms, both of which have bespoke built in wardrobes. The fourth bedroom is also a double room and has a cloakroom. The main family bathroom completes the accommodation. The courtyard garden offers a sheltered and private south-facing outdoor space and the detached timber workshop would also be perfect as a home office. The garden grounds sweep round the house offering a superb amount of outdoor space.
