Easter Cauldwells offers, what is a rare opportunity nowadays, a traditional red sandstone crofthouse which is in need of renovation. Whilst partial renovation works have been commenced by the vendor, there is still some way to go to make the property habitable. The nature of the site would also accommodate further extension to the property (subject of course to the appropriate planning consent being obtained).
The property forms an L-shape with a 1.5 storey crofthouse, which then leads through to the single level accommodation. The majority of the work that has been undertaken is within the single level. The 1.5 storey accommodation remains untouched to the extent of being back to the bare stonework and earth floor.
There is also a large detached, red sandstone outbuilding, with a traditional slate roof and floored attic – this is a source of storage space.
The property occupies a very pleasant site, which extends to approximately 0.7 of an acre. It is a relatively flat site, with grounds set mainly in grass. The property enjoys picturesque views over open farmland and the prominent outline of Bennachie can be seen in the horizon.
There is a private water supply that serves the property, but it is understood that mains water runs along the roadside, close to the property. Drainage is a septic tank within the site.
