McEwan Fraser Legal is delighted to offer this impressive listed Georgian property within the historic cobbled streets of Old Aberdeen. 10 The Chanonry is on a historic plot situated in an enviable position between the Arboretum and the Cruickshank Botanic Gardens and opposite St Machar’s Cathedral. This substantial five bedroom property and two-bedroom semi-basement flat has been meticulously maintained and refurbished by the current owners with a great deal of sensitivity.
10 The Chanonry provides extensive well-proportioned accommodation over four floors retaining a range of period features including immaculate original cornices, high skirting boards, pitch pine paneled doors, and working wooden shutters. Recent upgrades include the fitting of brushes to the sash windows, replacing the front roof in traditional slate, new damp course, and a new kitchen in the basement flat. The spectacular setting and appeal of this property can only be appreciated by viewing the house and its grounds.
A tarred driveway leads to the front of the property where parking for four to six vehicles is available. This private walled garden, which comprises approximately one acre, is spectacular in every way, and is not overlooked, with the Botanic Garden on its southern side and the Arboretum on its northern side. As a result the garden has a very rural feel, and yet is within a short distance of the City centre. Laid out mostly as lawn with shrubs, a well-established long herbaceous border, and a variety of mature trees including oak, copper beech, sycamore, chestnut, and yew. There are also fruit trees, a soft fruit area and large vegetable plot. The rear garden is again mostly lawn with naturalized areas of daffodil and bluebell, trees and shrubs. There is also a double tandem garage with power and a free standing garden shed.
The property has a spacious two bedroom semi basement flat. Recently upgraded and decorated in a fresh neutral tone it has a country style kitchen/dining room which is attractively fitted with a range of quality units and built-in appliances; a significant feature is the quarry tiled floor. A spacious lounge, two double bedrooms and family bath room complete this part of the property. Access to this self-contained flat is either through the main house (locked door) or through its own door at the rear of the property. The flat could easily be incorporated as part of the main house if that was desired.
From the cobbled streets you enter the extensive driveway through wrought iron gates and continue to the property. A graceful flight of granite steps leads to the solid wooden front of this elegant Georgian house. A spacious hallway gives access to the basement flat and all other ground floor accommodation: a large lounge with an open fire and three windows overlooking the fantastic garden, a bright kitchen with extensive cabinets and a formal dining room/family room (which could readily be combined), and a family bathroom. The first floor consists of the master bedroom, three additional large double bedrooms, two of which are currently used as studies and again have fantastic garden views, and the main bathroom. On the second floor there are two additional double bedrooms, with fitted wardrobes and dormer windows overlooking the spectacular elevated rear garden with glimpses into the botanical garden and the arboretum. There is also a useful closet on the upper landing.
The property benefits from mains gas, electricity, water and drains. The property is also protected by security alarms.By appointment through McEwan Fraser Legal on 01224 472 441
