The subjects form an old farm steading that date back approximately 200 years. In the past they have been used for a variety of agricultural and storage purposes. While some of the building is wind and water tight the majority of the development site is in a relatively derelict condition.
Extensive works will need to be carried out but it is envisaged that planning permission can be obtained for conversion of 7 houses. Whilst there is no planning permission in place at this time discussion with the local planners has indicated that this will not be an issue. All units will have ample parking and stunning views across a beautiful rural Aberdeenshire landscape.
The Colquhonnie Steading sits on an elevated position with southerly views. A double entrance driveway, shared with the adjacent Colquhonnie Hotel and Lonach Hall, provides sweeping access past lawn and mature trees and into the carpark at the front of the building.
This development steading is located in Strathdon, a community set in the idealic location in upper Donside, 45 miles west of Aberdeen, and despite a population of just 300 it provides a range of local services, including shops and a primary school. The town is home of the world famous Lonach Highland Games which is held every August attracting tourists from far and wide to the area.
Alford is the nearest principal town where further amenities can be found, along with the closest secondary school-Alford Academy. Health care can also be found here, as well as a library, swimming pool and two museums. Public transport to Aberdeen can be accessed in Alford and once in Aberdeen links to the rest of the UK can be found via bus and rail. Aberdeen has an international airport with frequent domestic and European flights.
This beautiful area offers peaceful surroundings for outdoor activities including hill walking, climbing and cycling. The Lecht, just a short distance away is the perfect place for skiing in the winter months. With over 70 gold courses in the Aberdeen and Grampian Highlands, you don’t have to travel far to find one from the site; Aboyne, Alford, Ballater, Braemar and Inverurie are just a few within easy driving distance.
