Viewfield is a very attractive, extended traditional farmhouse which is likely to date back the late 1800s. It sits in an elevated position near Fordyce and enjoys stunning views over the rolling Banffshire countryside and out to the Moray Firth beyond. On the ground floor, the front door opens into hallway with stairs to the first floor. To the left is an elegant sitting room with a wood burning stove set in a fireplace with a timber surround and a slate hearth. At the opposite end of the hallway is a family room which, being double aspect, is wonderfully light and also has a wood burning stove. From here a door leads to a generously sized dining kitchen. It has an excellent range of timber wall and floor units, granite worktops, various integrated appliances and French doors which lead out to the decking. Off the dining kitchen is a vestibule with a door to the driveway. A bedroom, utility room and shower room complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, the landing has two excellent storage cupboards and gives access to three light and airy double bedrooms. The master bedroom is particularly generous in size and has French doors out to a wonderful balcony from which the stunning view can be enjoyed. A family bathroom with high quality, modern fittings completes the accommodation. Overall the house appears to be in excellent condition, is beautifully presented and has a bright and airy atmosphere. Planning consent has been obtained to add a glazed sun room off the dining kitchen.

Outside, the grounds extend to about 3.42 acres, about 1.75 acres of which comprises a superb paddock. The remainder of the grounds include a very well maintained garden with extensive areas of lawn, a summer house, greenhouse, poly tunnel, a picnicking area and various mature specimen trees. Ample parking space for several vehicles is provided on a gravelled driveway whilst there is also a newly built timber double garage and store. Located nearby is an excellent timber framed barn and a charming traditional C shaped steading which offers extensive storage and livestock accommodation as well as scope for development (subject to obtaining all necessary consents).
