Aberdein Considine property The Old Mill of Monquich, Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire features in a Press & Journal Editorial.

The following is an extract from an article which appeared in the Tuesday the 14th of January 2014 edition of the Press & Journal:

"Modern and traditional are blended perfectly in this lovely home near Stonehaven.

The phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” comes to mind while flicking through the schedule for The Old Mill of Monquich, at Netherley.

The exterior of the house has been retained since its days as a mill – it is a beautiful, traditional building set within gorgeous countryside.

I had expected the interior to be similarly quaint and rustic but, to my surprise, it has been transformed into a modern haven.

The four-bedroom detached house has been carefully modernised and extended over the years to create a spacious home fit for a growing family.

Under-floor heating and a surround sound speaker system are just some of the mod-cons on offer here.

Rooms of note include the spacious lounge which features three sets of French-style doors, flooding the room with natural light, and a fantastic open fire taking centre stage in the room.

Sure to be the hub of the home, the recently fitted luxury kitchen is open plan with the sun room, creating a superb family space.

Sleek black high-gloss wall, base and drawer units are overlaid with hardwood surfaces and incorporate a range of integrated Neff appliances. The sun room is a great from which bi-fold doors open out to the garden.

A formal dining room is located at the front of the house and boasts twin aspect windows – the ideal spot for entertaining.

The galleried landing on the first floor gives way to the master bedroom, which has built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.

Three further well-proportioned bedrooms each offer ample space for free standing furniture. The box room provides extra storage space and the family bathroom completes the home.

The house, on the market for offers over £500,000, is surrounded by 1.6 acres of gardens, mainly laid to lawn, and wonderful countryside views.

An extensive driveway is laid with stone chips and leads up to the detached double garage.

And for those keen on the idea of a building project, planning permission has been granted for an additional wing encompassing a formal living room and library.

The Old Mill of Monquich is a short commute from both Aberdeen and Stonehaven."
