New price: discover the 'Harry Potter house' in the Royal Deeside

New price: discover the 'Harry Potter house' in the Royal Deeside

Affectionately known as the 'Harry Potter house' by locals, this quirky Victorian home is unlike anything else on Aberdeenshire's market.

Dating back to 1890, the renowned architect, Alexander Ellis, together with his brother in-law, Aberdeen Master Mason, John Morgan, set out to build 'The Firs' as a weekend holiday home.

Taking inspiration from the properties John Morgan saw on the outskirts of Toronto and the wonderful imagination and vision of Alexander Ellis, they created nothing short of a masterpiece. 

The five-bedroom property's original features have been carefully restored and beautifully maintained by the present owner, who also installed all the mod cons the modern family could wish for.

Features to note include the hand-built dining kitchen complete with stained glass and exposed beams; the characterful turret accessed via a winding staircase; and the secret, magical escape to the converted attic via a hidden door. 

The five-bedroom/four-reception room property is located within the Deeside village of Torphins, sitting in mature gardens with two Fir Trees towering above.

The well-stocked garden attracts a lot of wildlife which can be admired from the patio area.

'The Firs' is set at a fixed price of £660,000 - £55,000 below the market value!
