Fae Me Well is a beautiful home in a private, country setting on the outskirts of Aberdeen. The property is a fabulous home with 7 bedrooms and an attached self-contained annex named The Cottage. The house and annexe are surrounded by magnificent garden grounds and mature trees. The Cottage has been successfully rented out in the past by the seller.
Fae Me Well is a magnificent family home in an idyllic setting with secluded garden grounds in the unspoiled hamlet of Cothal on the northern banks of the River Don. Originally a farmhouse dating from approximately 1840, the property was extended in Victorian times when it became the dower house for Fintray House.
In more recent times, the seller has comprehensively upgraded the property to a very high standard and added an impressive kitchen extension.
From the public road, a sweeping tarred drive with granite entrance walls either side leads along a wild flower and mature beech tree lined drive which divides to Fae Me Well though electric gates and continues to the garage block.
The white harled stone property has well-proportioned accommodation over two floors. Many fine period features remain including bay windows, high ceilings, ornate pitch pine doors and staircase and open fires.
The entrance vestibule leads to an impressive entrance hall, oozing with period features, most notably a beautiful stained glass window and the Victorian tiled floor.
There are three elegant reception rooms, each with a different ambiance. The living room is an inviting room with two bow windows facing south and west and an open fire with a beautiful ornate pine and gesso mantelpiece. Across the main hallway is the more formal drawing room, which is a light and elegant room. Thirdly, there is a formal dining room which has been tastefully decorated and exudes charm and is the perfect entertaining room.
The open plan dining kitchen with views over the garden is the hub of the house. Flooded with natural light coupled with a beautiful limestone tiled floor with under floor heating, the kitchen is a particularly inviting room. The sitting area has a gas burner as its focal point. There is a useful pantry off the kitchen area.
Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a spacious, south facing conservatory from where one can enjoy the garden and mature trees. The master bedroom suite is particularly pleasing with a well-appointed dressing room, spacious south and east aspect bedroom and a luxury ensuite shower room by Laings of Inverurie.
The staircase with pitch pine balustrade and handrail leads past a mezzanine shower room to the first floor. On the first floor is bedroom 2 with ensuite and five further double bedrooms, 2 are currently used as studies. There is also a family bathroom. There is also an abundance of storage with built in cupboards and a luggage room.
Attached to the north of Fae Me Well is a one bedroom, self-contained annex ‘The Cottage’. In good order throughout, the sellers have successfully let the property over the years.
The Lodge adjacent to the house is also available to the purchaser of the house by separate negotiation.
Beautifully maintained, private, mature gardens surround the house. With areas of year round interest there is an extensive area of lawn with colourful borders of shrubs and plants. A sheltered paved terrace, accessible from the kitchen, is overlooked by an impressive Hartley Botanic greenhouse. To the south, beyond the landscaped garden is a bank of mature woodland with daffodils and bluebells which offers privacy.
A block of three garages, one with remote control up and over door and one with a WC. There is power and light.
