Upper Brandmyres Farmhouse is an impressive three public, five bedroom, plus study, family home located within an ideal idyllic location. With a short walk to the local primary school, this private and scenic rural setting also provides ready access to Aberdeen City. Sympathetically extended on the site of the existing farmhouse, the owners ensured the design took advantage of the fabulous views of the natural surroundings over the Shire, City and sea beyond.Materials used matched the granite stonework and slate roof of the original farmhouse with the extension maintaining the existing roof line and replicating the upper floor windows to provide a most attractive first impression of this contemporary home. Most windows are timber framed double glazed sash and casement design and all fascias and soffits are also timber in keeping with the original. The versatile configuration would suit any growing family or those seeking a multi-generational home.The luxury dining kitchen with polished granite work surfaces and splashbacks has plenty of space to relax and entertain with a dining and sitting area enjoying full vantage of viewpoints to the surrounding gardens, to Cults and to the Sea, through the large triple-aspect window. Natural light floods the home through numerous floor-to-ceiling windows and doors.The outside space and outbuildings offer a great lifestyle space with a variety of warm patios and the mature landscaping provides eye- catching details at every turn.
