Located on the edge of the coastal town of Ellon, Waterton House Hotel enjoys a scenic location. It offers tastefully renovated rooms.
Rumor has it that the vision of Waterton House was conceived by this granite master, Aberdeen’s own John Smith. The property is definitely the epitome of Tudor Gothic style, built in 1850 and offering five bedrooms, outbuildings and 1½ acres of gardens in the popular Ellon area.
Currently on the market through Galbraith for offers of over £700,000, Waterton House has been graciously refurbished in recent years. The classic interiors are bright and fresh and provide a great space for family life and entertainment, with four reception rooms including a new conservatory.
The entrance vestibule leads into a long vestibule which leads to a spacious dining and living area. Passing through the house, the well-equipped kitchen offers direct access to the dining area, while the large utility room can be used as a second kitchen if required.
A more informal living room/family room and a semi-circular conservatory complete the ground floor space, providing direct access to the gardens.
Five bedrooms are located on the first floor next to the shower and bathroom. The two bedrooms are interconnected, making it possible for another bathroom (subject to planning, of course).
Approaching the hill via a private tree-lined driveway, the building offers stunning views of the surrounding forests and gardens, offering privacy, tranquility and plenty of room for entertainment.
In the garden you will also find a striking log cabin, a great place for barbecues and al fresco dining, rain or shine. Elsewhere in the garden there is a charming bridge that leads over a small stream, an orchard, and several flower beds and lawns.
Ellon is about 16 miles north of Aberdeen, on the banks of the River Ethan. The thriving city has excellent shopping, recreational and sports facilities, as well as three elementary schools and the public campus of Ellon Academy.
Waterton House is currently for sale through Galbraith with offers in excess of £700,000 – see more photos or ask the agent for more information.
