Country home with paddocks and a lochan

Mill of Thornton is a large traditional country home with a private countryside location, with its own lochan.

Presented by Galbraith, it is located only a few minutes from both Inverurie and Oldmeldrum.

As one enters the home there is the vestibule, utility room and boot room combined, and family room with wood burning stove, separate formal dining room and formal sitting room with wood burning stove.

The impressive open plan kitchen, dining and family room is an incredible living space with wood burning stove and doors opening out to the garden. Completing the accommodation on the ground level is the cloak room.

Continuing upstairs there is the master suite, which includes the bedroom, large walk in wardrobe and a contemporary ensuite shower room by Laing’s of Inverurie. Double bedroom two with dressing area and ensuite shower room, double bedroom three, double bedroom four and the main family bathroom, again a contemporary room by Laing’s of Inverurie.

The private track road is in great condition with various drainage points to prevent flooding within the wetter months. The track leads through the woodland to the house, where there are plenty parking areas.

The garden grounds have been beautifully created and maintained with mature and colourful plants, shrubs, neat hedging and trees. The grass lawn leads down to the pond at the far end of the garden, which is fed by the Bronie Burn. A chicken coop lies to the West side of the house and is fully enclosed.

Various patios provide excellent space for outside entertaining and dining and the productive kitchen garden is encased by neat hedging.

The paddocks extend to around 27.75 acres and are divided into seven fields. All fencing has been replaced over the last couple of years, with the exception of one area, and all horse paddocks have electric fencing.

The woodlands were planted around the early 1990’s and include a variety of species including oak, ash, beech, copper beech, willow and maple. Furthermore there are coniferous species including Scots pine, Douglas fir and larch. There are no further grant payments.

The charming lochan is positioned to the south and sheltered by mature woodland. The lochan attracts wonderful wildlife throughout the year including swans whilst the paths around the lochan meander through the woodland.

There are around 57 acres, being a mixture of grazing land and mature woodland, and Mill of Thornton has been designed and maintained to an exceptionally high standard by the present owners as an outstanding lifestyle property.

Various outbuildings, including a traditional detached stone steading and separate stables, provide plentiful storage and working space and have again all been maintained to a very high standard.
