This charming property is a unique opportunity for the discerning buyer to purchase this former railway station which enjoys a peaceful and serene location of the Old Deeside Line.This stunning home is surrounded by mature trees and plants and is a haven for local wildlife. The Deeside Railway Line offered a service between Aberdeen and Banchory. The line was planned originally to end at Braemar but Queen Victoria was afraid her privacy would be disturbed by hordes of tourists at Balmoral so she bought land along the route between Ballater and Braemar to prevent this. Many of the original features have been carefully restored, adding to the character of this enviable home, and include high ceilings, sash-and-case style windows, partially glazed interior double doors, and attractive feature fireplaces, one of which incorporates an Aga cast iron stove. In the main station building original boarded timber linings adorn the walls of many of the rooms, which also enjoy dual aspects with pleasant outlooks over the leafy grounds.
