Full planning permission has been granted for the creation of a luxury detached family home sat amongst the beautiful mearns countryside with privacy, space and beautiful open views. Designed by Annie Kenyon Architects, the planning allows for a unique single detached dwelling house which extends over two levels to around 274sqm, with detached double garage and large garden grounds. The position of the property was given considerable thought to maximise the open views to the North & East and to benefit from the suns position and the current design uses local materials specifically chosen to sympathise with the countryside environment, yet with modern simplicity. Open plan living was very much at the forefront of the internal design to accommodate the modern family lifestyle, yet additional separate rooms provide the option of privacy. The modern open plan spaces have been further enhanced by perfectly positioned and proportioned windows, to capture the surrounding countryside and to bring the outside in.
This very attractive house site enjoys the rolling countryside on their doorstep, offering an attractive rural lifestyle setting, whilst also being conveniently located for commuters.
Ground Floor: Entrance hall, open plan lounge/kitchen/ dining room with pantry, cloakroom, utility room, master bedroom with ensuite and dressing room. Sunroom leading through to the snug/family room and further bedroom/play room.
Lower Floor: Bedroom 2 & 3, with Jack & Jill shower room, bedroom 4 and main family bathroom.
Full planning permission was granted by Aberdeenshire Council on the 19th September 2014 under reference APP/2014/2695. The planning permission was purified in 2017. Full details of the planning can be obtained from Galbraith Aberdeen upon request or by visiting the council planning portal.

The new house site at Upper Craighill is located within the peaceful Mearns countryside, yet conveniently located only 4 miles from Inverbervie and a 15 minutes’ drive from both Laurencekirk to the south and Stonehaven to the North. The town of Montrose is also a 30 minute drive away. Laurencekirk offers a host of social, leisure and consumer facilities, including high street retailers, post office and sports centre and Clubs. More comprehensive facilities are available in Aberdeen and Dundee, both of which provide all the recreational, entertainment, educational and cultural facilities one would expect of large cities. From a commuter’s viewpoint, the location is ideal for travelling to Aberdeen and Dundee by road and there are also local bus and train stations in Inverbervie and Laurencekirk. Lathallan School at Johnshaven, only some 8 miles, is a highly regarded local private day and boarding school set in the Brotherton Castle. Alternatively excellent local education is provided in the area and Mearns secondary school.
