Goose Croft House is an elegant Gerogian former manse dating from 1784 and has been in the vendor’s family for over 40 years. The house is now in need of some refurbishment but will make an excellent family home in Aberdeenshire once completed.

Accommodation is arranged over two-and-a-half stories and reception rooms are large and spacious, and filled with charming period features like open fireplaces and cornicing while the large kitchen overlooks the back garden, but would benefit in particular from a makeover.

Upstairs there are four large bedrooms on the first floor plus a family bathroom; an adjacent room to the master bedroom would convert well into an en-suite bathroom. The second floor comprises two large rooms with dormer windows and an adjacent store room.

Outside the garden extends to around half an acre and is split between the formal front garden, which merges into a vegetable plot and fruit trees growing on the garden wall, and the back garden which contains a magnificent copper beech tree and a garage/stable block. There is currently planning permission to built on a plot next to the walled garden.

Goose Croft House is situated in the village of Kintore, just four miles from Inverurie and 12 miles from Aberdeen. The village has a small range of shops including a garage, library, post office, a butcher, a pub and a newly built primary school and the surrounding area is well known for its natural beauty.

The guide price is £705,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01330 826 800 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
