Ren­o­vated steading is a stun­ner

The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - YOUR HOME - Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 3, 2017

West Park Steading has a wel­com­ing easy charm, with a won­der­ful mix of ru­ral tra­di­tion and mod­ern trend.

Taste­fully ren­o­vated in 2004, don’t be de­ceived by the fact that this three­bed­room home is semide­tached as the in­te­rior is de­cep­tively spa­cious.

The south-fac­ing gar­dens also pro­vide the per­fect back­drop to au­tumn, whether you have lit­tle ones or vi­sions of your very own oa­sis come spring.

Per­haps one of West Park Steading’s most ap­peal­ing qual­i­ties, of which there are many, is its prac­ti­cal lay­out which is well suited for fam­ily life.

The ground floor ac­com­mo­da­tion flows neatly from the re­cep­tion hall to the liv­ing room, which is one of two pub­lic rooms where you can en­ter­tain guests.

The liv­ing room offers a cast iron fire­place with timber sur­round, while triple as­pect win­dows over­look the gar­den. You’ll be able to watch the sea­sons change while stay­ing nice and cosy in front of the fire, and it is the per­fect room to re­tire to af­ter din­ner.

The din­ing come fam­ily room is an in­cred­i­bly ver­sa­tile space and a neu­tral colour scheme of soft grey makes this room seem even big­ger.

Whether you have im­ages of din­ner par­ties or you want a fur­ther liv­ing area, there is cer­tainly the space on offer. You need not worry about com­pro­mis­ing on din­ing space as there is plenty of room for fur­ni­ture in the mod­ern din­ing kitchen.

Whether you love to cook or feel more com­fort­able in the role of chief taster, the kitchen could eas­ily be­come the heart of the home.

There is am­ple work unit space and you’ll be able to chat to guests as you cook – ideal!

Com­plet­ing the down­stairs ac­com­mo­da­tion is the util­ity room, which will pro­vide handy stor­age space for mucky shoes.

An­other strik­ing fea­ture of West Park Steading is the gorgeous oak stair­case com­plete with oak pan­elling, which leads to all first­floor ac­com­mo­da­tion.

There are two dou­ble bed­rooms and a mas­ter bed­room, all of which have been beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated.

Each room is packed with char­ac­ter, from slop­ing ceil­ings to trendy fea­ture walls and sky­lights.

The mas­ter bed­room boasts an en-suite and a study, which could also be used as a dress­ing room.

The fam­ily bath­room is equally well equipped.

Head out­side where the gar­dens have been laid to lawn and are easy to main­tain, com­plete with ma­ture trees and shrubs. There are two sheds plus a large dou­ble garage.

If you fancy a spot of al fresco din­ing, you’ll feel right at home on the deck­ing area where you’ll find the beau­ti­ful sum­mer house. Gar­den par­ties or a peace­ful spot for af­ter­noon read­ing, the choice is yours.

The vil­lage of Dru­moak is only two miles away and you have the Dee­side coun­try­side on your doorstep, not to men­tion the thriv­ing town of Ban­chory. Aberdeen is within easy com­mut­ing dis­tance but come the week­end you can make the most of Dee­side rail­way line, where you’ll find a bril­liant walk­ing and cy­cling route a stone’s throw from your new home.

Offers should be made in the re­gion of more than £350,000.
