10 Belvidere Road is a fine granite built period property with many original features remaining, including deep silled windows and skirtings, panelled doors, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses. Extended by the current owners during 2011 to create a fantastic open plan living area, it is the perfect gathering space for guests and family to enjoy the far reaching southerly views over the Dee Valley.
Glazed double doors lead into the well proportioned entrance vestibule. Currently used as a boot room with traditional, original terracotta floor tiling, a wide panelled door with glazed panels and adjacent frosted window panelling leads into the welcoming reception hall, where the staircase leads up to the first floor. Within the hall there is a useful understair cupboard, and well appointed WC cloakroom which features a white two piece suite. The versatile study is accessible from the hall and fitted with attractive wood flooring and a large cupboard, while a deep silled window overlooks the rear courtyard.
From the reception hall a panelled door leads into the spacious and bright sitting room, which lies on open plan to the dining room and kitchen, creating a wonderfully light and airy living space that is perfect for modern family life. Fitted with solid wood flooring which continues into the dining room, a large bay window area provides fabulous south facing views across the garden and surrounding countryside. Arched alcoves are located to either side of an impressive fireplace, which features a wood mantel, slate hearth and cast iron inset.
The dining room area is perfect for formal dining and entertaining. With ample space available for a large dining table set, the focal point is the attractive fireplace with slate hearth which houses a living flame gas fire and is flanked by twin shelved alcoves.
The dining kitchen is of an attractive modern design created by Kitchens International. A good range of cream storage units with soft close doors and drawers provides plenty of storage, contrasting with stone effect splash backs and wood effect roll top work surfaces which incorporate a 1.5 stainless steel sink with drainer. There are a range of integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a range cooker with double oven and five ring gas hob. A large island provides further storage, while a fixed dining table with glazed top provides informal dining space. Within the kitchen, a glazed door with adjacent full height windows allows access to the courtyard, and lets in plenty of natural light. The utility room is accessible from the kitchen and includes a range of base and wall units, while also being plumbed for white appliances.
Ascending the staircase to the first floor, there is a fully carpeted landing. A large frosted ceiling hatch provides access to the attic and additional natural light.
The principal bedroom arguably enjoys the best outlook in the house. A large south facing bay window provides far reaching views across the Dee Valley, where it is also possible to spot local wildlife in nearby fields. Of tasteful decoration there is a striking bespoke fitted wardrobe, while a sliding door reveals the en suite shower room, which includes a white two piece suite and generous shower enclosure housing a mains shower appliance with rain effect shower heads.
Double bedrooms two, three and four are all well proportioned rooms of neutral decoration and carpeting.
Bedroom five includes a deep silled window which allows for south facing views, and would also be ideal as a nursery or further home office/hobby room if so desired. Completing the living accommodation is the family bathroom, which includes a white three piece suite and mains shower appliance, with high pressure hot water over the bath.
With parking on the private road directly outside the property, an iron gate leads down into the rear entrance where the attractive and sheltered courtyard is located. A separate gate from Belvidere Road allows access to the front garden via a pink gravelled pathway and this is where an integrated store can be found, providing storage for bicycles and gardening equipment. From the gravelled top tier of the front garden one can fully appreciate the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Lying on a gentle slope with tiered sections, the garden is well established with large areas of lawn and a variety of shrubs, seasonal plants, mature trees and hedging, in addition to a wide variety of fruit trees. There are two sheds within the garden which both have an electricity source and provide good external storage. The property also benefits from easy access to the former Deeside Railway line, which is popular with walkers and cyclists.
From Aberdeen, follow the A93 North Deeside Road through Cults. After passing the public library, take the third road on the left down West Cults Road. After passing beneath the Old Deeside Railway Line, turn right into Belvidere Road. Number 10 is located a short distance along on the left hand side.
