Summary details

OVER £38,000 BELOW HOME REPORT VALUATION A truly unique property set in the heart of Royal Deeside, The Firs is a grand Detached Victorian home set within generous garden grounds within the popular village of Torphins. Unlike anything else, this is a rare opportunity to own a property that was designed by the renowned Victorian Architect Alexander Ellis who commissioned his brother in law, Aberdeen Master Mason John Morgan, to build The Firs in circa 1890 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. Retaining many original features and generous living and bedroom accommodation perfect for modern family living, the property can only be fully appreciated through internal viewing. Upon approach up the driveway the imposing home stands in mature gardens with a parking area and detached garage that can park up to five cars. The main entrance is to the front of the home where a welcoming vestibule opens into the main hall and from there is access to the formal dining room, versatile sitting room, main lounge with a beautiful box bay window, and the impressive dining kitchen. Sure to be the hub of the home, this stunning room provides a lovely outlook over the garden and ample space for dining and entertaining around the high quality fitted kitchen and centre island. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a well appointed utility room leading to a shower room with sauna, library and cloakroom WC. The staircase and landing are engulfed with natural light from a tall feature window and the upper hall has original wood panelling. There are three double bedrooms, two of which have built in wardrobes, a family bathroom and the master bedroom suite that boasts a box bay window, large dressing room with fitted storage and en suite shower room. Behind a hidden door in the wood panelling on the landing, stairs lead up to the attic room which has been used as a children’s play room in the past but would also make an incredible office space which features an external balcony and ladder access to the turret. With panoramic views during the day and stunning moon lit starry nights the turret is a breath taking feature of the home. The gardens enjoy a high level of privacy and are well stocked with an abundance of trees, plants and shrubs. There is a lovely patio area access from the kitchen that offers the perfect outdoor space for entertaining and dining. The garage hidden to the rear of the property is fully secured with alarm and full width sliding doors and can easily park up to five cars. A part exchange may be considered.
