Woodend of Glassel is an exclusive development of five fully serviced plots situated just outside Banchory in the heart of Royal Deeside. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a contemporary, sustainable home designed specifically to suit your lifestyle. Features such as a double height entrance hall, open plan kitchen and living space alongside a separate lounge plus utility and boot room with 4/5 bedrooms and bathrooms, creates a home perfect for busy family life. Each plot benefits from a large garden ranging from 0.4 of an acre to 1.5 acres.
Each of the plots benefits from wonderful views over mature countryside and woodland, with natural boundaries being provided by existing trees. Three plots have the added feature of waterside frontage to the Canny Burn.
Boundaries will be elegantly landscaped to age gracefully and screen neighbouring properties without the need for tall fences. None of the properties are overshadowed and all plots have fine views over the surrounding countryside to the hills beyond.
Luxury living around a rural lifestyle is on offer here, and within the backdrop of mature trees a variety of wildlife can be found, including roe deer and red squirrels, woodpeckers and red kites, whilst herons, grey wagtails and dippers can be spotted on the banks of the burn.
The charming town of Banchory is less than five minutes’ drive away, with the traditional village of Torphins an equal distance to the west. This is an area of tangible prosperity, linked to the oil industry in Aberdeen, and more recently the renewables industry, and the thriving city of Aberdeen is within easy commuting distance of Glassel, particularly the new business parks of Westhill and Kingswells.
Banchory, just 17 miles west of Aberdeen, has a comprehensive range of facilities and amenities, including both local and national shops, a monthly Farmers Market, and several top class hotels, restaurants and coffee shops. The town is served by two primary schools and a secondary school, all with excellent reputations, and a new and impressive sports village. The leading multi-arts centre of the North East, Woodend Barn, is situated to the east of Banchory, adjacent to the large Tesco store, celebrating and showcasing all art forms, alongside Buchanans Bistro, where honest, thoughtful food is served in a restorative environment. Banchory has two great golf courses and a driving range, and many other local outdoor leisure pursuits are readily available in the area, notably fishing, horse riding, hill walking, mountain biking, gliding, canoeing, shooting, and in winter, skiing and snow boarding.
Watch salmon leaping up the Falls at the Bridge of Feugh, or take a hike up Scolty Hill for fantastic views over Banchory. Follow the Castle Trail, visiting the majestic fairy-tale castles at Crathes, Drum and Craigievar and drive through the historic villages of Aboyne, Ballater and Braemar, all renowned for their Highland Games. Banchory benefits from an excellent public transport service both to Aberdeen and up the Dee Valley, with regular buses passing Woodend of Glassel.
Within half an hour’s drive the City of Aberdeen provides a vibrant centre for shopping, eating out, entertainment and culture. Several shopping centres, two universities, theatres, concert halls and a fun beach packed with entertainment offer a wealth of different pursuits for all the family. Should you choose to make your home at Woodend of Glassel, a short drive will leave the bustle of the city behind and bring you back to your idyllic rural lifestyle in the heart of Royal Deeside.
