Extensive garden. 12. 3 acres agricultural/amenity land. About ½ mile of trout fishing on the River Don. Milton of Fintray Farmhouse and Land (about 25. 9 acres)Milton of Fintray FarmhouseSituated at the heart of the farm, close to the farm steading with access via a private tree - lined drive that leads for about 250 metres from the public road, this is a substantial three - storey house with an attractive southerly outlook. Built in the late 19th century of local granite under a slate roof, the house was comprehensively modernised by the current owners following their purchase of the farm in 1990. This included rewiring, replumbing, installation of oil - fired central heating, repointing of the masonry, treatment of the roof timbers and replacement of slates. Providing well - proportioned family - sized accommodation, internal features of the house include open fireplaces with decorative mantels; timber panelled doors, sash - and - case windows with panelled shutters and painted wrought iron decorative spindles on the staircase. With a private water supply and private drainage to a septic tank, the accommodation is laid out over three floors as follows: Ground Floorconservatory, hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room. First Floorlanding, drawing room/bedroom 1, 3 further bedrooms, box room, bathroom with shower, and family bathroom. Second Floorlanding and 3 bedrooms. The house sits amid a large, part walled garden which is predominantly laid down to lawn with a terraced shrubbery as a central feature. Mature deciduous trees to the rear of the house include copper beech, ash, cherry, horse chestnut and there is a small orchard; these provide protection from the elements and there is a spacious gravelled parking area at the rear of the house. LandIncluded within Lot 1 is circa 12 acres of accommodation land to the south and east of the farmhouse. This land is currently sown in crop as part of the overall farming operation at Milton of Fintray. If Lot 1 is sold independently of the majority of the farm (Lot 3), this area will be fenced (by the buyer) to provide land suitable for horses, a small number of livestock, an extended garden or woodland planting. Also included within Lot 1 is circa half a mile of the solum and riverbank of the River Don. With a footpath following the left bank of the river, this provides added amenity to this package. This includes trout fishing rights - the lower Don is famous for the size and number of its trout - and the opportunity to flight wildfowl. There is a raised flood bank separating the river from the farmland. The house is on a higher level. Milton of Fintray Farm is situated just west of the village of Hatton of Fintray, adjacent to the River Don, 8 miles northwest of Aberdeen city centre and 3 miles from Aberdeen Airport. The closest settlement is Hatton of Fintray, which has a post office, hotel and church. The towns of Dyce and Inverurie are equidistant from Milton of Fintray (4 miles) in opposite directions. Both towns provide a good range of services and facilities including supermarkets, sports facilities, banks, GP surgery, a range of shops and professional services including solicitors and accountants. Both towns also have railway stations with frequent services on the Aberdeen to Inverness line. Aberdeen Airport has rapidly expanded in recent years and, in addition to frequent daily flights to London and other UK cities, there are daily flights to Dublin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris and a range of other European destinations. The airport is just 3 miles from Milton of Fintray but is screened from view and sound by a low range of hills. Aberdeen is Scotland's third city and is world - renowned as the oil capital of Europe. It is the base for several multi - national oil companies and much of the industry connected with the extraction of North Sea oil. As a result, the city has a cosmopolitan population and provides the breadth of retail, leisure, culture, education and professional services required to satisfy this sophisticated range of tastes. This includes two well - respected universities and several private schools. The county of Aberdeenshire is renowned for its agricultural productivity and as the origin county of the famous Aberdeen Angus black cattle. The area is therefore particularly well - served by agricultural merchants, contractors and suppliers. Milton of Fintray is well - placed for access to the Auction Mart serving the whole of the northeast of Scotland, which is at Thainstone near Inverurie (4 miles). Beyond agriculture, the area is well - known for the quality of its outdoor pursuits including golf, fishing, field sports, walking and mountaineering. The nearest golf course is one mile away at Kintore, whilst the well - regarded links courses of Royal Aberdeen and Balgownie are 6 miles away on the North Sea coast. The recently approved and somewhat controversial Donald Trump golf resort will be 12 miles from Milton of Fintray at Newburgh. There is fishing of all types available in the area ranging from deep water and coastal sea fishing to salmon fishing on the Rivers Don and Dee, and trout fishing on a variety of local rivers and still waters. There are some excellent pheasant and partridge shoots in the area offering walked - up days for let and, with the Grampian Mountains being about 20 miles to the west, there is red deer stalking and grouse shooting available to let on a number of estates. For those with other interests, the contrasting landscape of Aberdeenshire from high mountains to sandy beaches provides for all manner of leisure activities. Bennachie to the west of Inverurie is a prominent and popular hill with walkers.
