Sat on the edge of the popular village of Daviot, this part constructed detached home sits in around 0.42 of an acre with breath-taking views across the countryside to Bennachie. This architect designed home has been meticulously thought through to ensure the design is contemporary, yet sympathetic to the countryside, and offers a one-off creative design whilst offering practicalities for families and everyday life. Asymmetrical in design, the house has been carefully positioned to perfectly capture the sunrise to the east, sunset to the west in the evenings and predominantly capture the outstanding views of Bennachie to the south. The property is sat within the hillside, and has been designed to be quiet and understated from the private drive at the rear, yet turning to the front they have created an outstanding and unique contemporary home. All main rooms are positioned to the front of the house to maximise the incredible views and the ground level has a wrap-around outdoor terrace to the front & sides. Energy efficiency has also been at the fore front of the design with air source heating, solar panels and the main construction using Insulated Concrete formwork (ICF) for good energy performance and excellent thermal insulation with minimal heat loss.
This is an exciting and rare opportunity to take the property from its current stage through to completion and this gives the potential buyer the opportunity to design and complete the important final stages and to personalise the house to their own specific taste and needs. A genuine rare opportunity in Aberdeenshire.
From the driveway at ground level, you enter a vestibule area which in turn leads through to the main entrance hall. This hall space will have incredible floor to ceiling windows perfectly capturing the views of Bennachie and flooding this space with natural light. To the left you will continue through to the open plan kitchen & dining room space with large east facing window to enjoy the sunrise in the morning and further windows to the south. The separate dining room area can be opened up to become part of the current kitchen/dining space or can be partitioned to create a separate room. Also at this side of the house is the boot room. Returning to the hall and continuing to the west side of the house, there is a double bedroom, shower room and the main formal lounge, with window to the south and to the west to perfectly capture the sunsets. If one continues to the lower ground floor there are two double bedrooms to one side together with the main family bathroom and laundry/plant room. Positioned centrally, the family room has floor to ceiling windows capturing Bennachie and doors opening out to garden grounds. The master bedroom design includes a dressing room and ensuite bathroom and completing the accommodation is the home office, which can also be bedroom 5.
STAGE OF BUILD
The property will be taken to a wind & water tight stage, anticipated to be by September/October 2021. The opportunity is available to purchase the site ahead of this stage if preferred. Some partition walls are currently not in place which would allow any potential buyer flexibility to suit their own needs.
Please note the asking price is not for the completed house. Any purchaser would be taking the house in a wind & water tight stage and progressing the completion themselves.
Services are in place including the drainage system, mains water connection and electricity connection.
The planning reference is APP/2020/0129 and documents can be viewed on the Aberdeenshire council planning portal.
