Millview House enjoys a superb rural position set back from the small inland village of Stuartfield in the Buchan area of Aberdeenshire. Whilst the village itself is a tranquil community, the wider area has many natural resources and places to visit. Nearby Aden country park is a sprawling county estate park with a plethora of different attractions which families especially enjoy exploring. Pitfour estate is also a scenic walking area with swans and geese abundant. Larger towns are readily accessible and Aberdeen international airport is just some 32 miles drive. A perfect gateway to enjoy a rural lifestyle and all that Aberdeenshire countryside can offer.Renovated and restored with a great deal of attention to details and with family uppermost in mind, the current owners saw a great deal of potential for Millview House. It certainly has evolved over many years, from its humble beginnings as buildings for the wider farm, Millview House has grown to the generously proportioned 10 bedroom family home that it is today. Offering a versatility second to none, this house has the potential to offer any new purchaser the ability to work from home, perhaps run a business or equally be ideal for those looking to split live as a multi-generational family. The configuration of rooms spanning over two levels, could be split to accommodate separate living accommodation under one roof. The current owner has previously used Millview as a guest house offering bed and breakfast with a high turnover of trade in the area. This certainly could be something that could be considered for Millview House again in the future.This handsome stone property (former steading complex) stands proudly within its rural location. Accommodation is over two floors and care has been taken within the property to ensure that there were expansive open plan family areas as well as cosier nooks throughout. There are 6 en-suite bedrooms in the house, a further 3 bedrooms are serviced by a shower room and a fourth on the upper level could be used as desired. All rooms are individually decorated and finished to a very high standard and most have a good level of storage either within or with easy access of hallway storage.Upon entering the main hallway, the generous proportions of the property are evident, spacious with room for a variety of free-standing furniture, the configuration of the home starts to offer many possibilities. The expansive public rooms are equally unique and special. A vast dining kitchen and family room really is the true heart of Millview House, set on open plan with each other this social space offers the ideal place for any entertaining to begin. The kitchen itself has a wide variety of wall and base mounted units with a large breakfast bar island taking central stage, whilst the family room has garden access, opening up that inside outside feel and a large gas fire and marble mantle for colder winter nights. It is worthy of note that at all turn windows allow a high ingress of natural light to flood in and act as a reminder of the panoramic countryside views surrounding the property. The formal lounge is an inviting room with a working fireplace as its main focal point, French doors give access to a side courtyard. The third main public room, known by the present owners as the Snooker room, is a superb games room to the main house or this whole section of the property could become a self-contained annex with its own bedroom and shower room accommodation.Millview House also benefits from a substantial integral pitched roof workshop, measuring 17’6 x 28’5. The workshop also has vehicle and pedestrian access with a ramp which can be available via separate negotiation. Offering substantial potential, the workshop could lend itself well to a variety of purposes. The double garage with pitched roof is equally sizeable and has two vehicle access doors.Constructed only some 20 years ago, Millvew House benefits from double glazed UPVC frame windows and doors with timber soffits.
