It takes bravery to embark on a 'Grand Designs' project, knowing the blood, sweat and (quite often) tears that goes into restoring an aging property to its former glory.
When the going gets tough, it can be tempting to cut corners – but no such liberty has been taken at The Manse, an imposing Victorian-era building in the Aberdeenshire village of Kintore.
This five-bedroom property – once home to the local ministry – has been resurrected. Tastefully restored, it is now a modern home which pays homage to its classic heritage.
The fireplaces, cornicing, door handles and cast-iron radiators – all sourced and refurbished by the current owners - take you back in time.
Woven through these traditional features is a stylish, modern twist, with eye-catching wallpapers and a sleek country-styled kitchen with Belfast sink and matching utility.
The stunning dining room floor has been handmade by a local source with parquet design. The family bathroom offers a wood panel backdrop for the roll top bath and contrasting 'Laura Ashley' patterned floor tiles.
Outside, the property sits on a large plot with walled garden, spacious driveway and detached double garage which was rebuilt in 2015 with electric door, fully floored loft, Ramsay ladder, power, light and plumbing for a washing machine.
The Manse, 6 Forest Road, Kintore, is on the market with our Inverurie office for offers over £515,000
