Newtonbury is an impressive detached house located in a quiet yet accessible position between Portsoy and Cornhill in the historic county of Banff. Dating from 2010, the house was designed by the current owners and built using highly regarded Aberdeenshire based tradesmen. Constructed using a timber frame supplied by Angus Homes and rendered block under a tiled roof, the house provides spacious, flexible and very well-appointed accommodation over two storeys. From the driveway, the house is accessed through the vestibule and into a spacious and well lit hallway. From here, doors lead to various rooms including the sitting room with an attractive marble fireplace and long windows which open up the delightful view to the north.
From here, double doors open to an elegant dining room and on to an impressive breakfasting kitchen with high quality light oak fitted wall and floor units, an array of integrated appliances, quartz work surfaces and a modern Contura wood burning stove. French doors lead to the garden whilst further doors lead to a study and a sun room which also has a pair of French doors leading to the garden. From the kitchen there is a wonderful walk in pantry and access to a spacious well-equipped utility room with a cloak room / WC. A door from the utility room leads to an oversized single garage. Back to the hallway, doors also lead to a family ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room and two bedrooms, the master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe / dressing room and an ‘en suite’ bathroom. On the first floor, there is a bright and airy landing / seating area with an array of built in wardrobes and cupboards with doors leading to a bathroom and two generously sized bedrooms. All areas are served by a central vacuum system.
The house appears to be in excellent condition and is very tastefully decorated throughout. It has large double-glazed windows which flood the interior with natural light whilst the breakfasting/dining kitchen with a wood burning stove and high quality kitchen fittings, the sitting room with an open log burning Riva cassette fire, sun room and dining room are particularly appealing rooms. There is ample storage space with numerous built in wardrobes and cupboards and the house is heated using oil central heating. The house has been constructed in such a way that it would be relatively straightforward to extend the accommodation, subject to planning, by converting the first floor of the rear wing (above the kitchen, utility room and garage) should additional space be required.
Outside, the house sits in a generously sized garden with areas of lawn and ample parking space for several vehicles and a shed/log store.
