We take pleasure in offering for sale this outstanding family residence, which enjoys a particularly private and secluded setting within 0.6 of an acre of stunning garden grounds, in the prestigious westerly suburb of Bieldside.  Built circa late 1890s, and sympathetically extended thereafter, this unique dwellinghouse boasts an abundance of fine period features which include impressive traditional fireplaces incorporating functional and gas burning fires, bay windows, high ceilings with moulded plaster coving and intricate cornicing, picture and dado rails, and deep skirting boards. The particularly spacious accommodation is set out over three floors. Natural light flows through the home, creating a particularly light and airy ambience, and in particular the east and west facing sun lounges are perfectly positioned to enjoy both morning and evening sunlight.  The ground and first floor rooms are serviced by gas central heating whilst there is electric heating on the top floor; the uPVC windows are double glazed, with leaded glass top openers to those which are front facing; and there are TV aerials with satellite connection, and telephone points with Broadband facility in the principal rooms.  The fresh décor is finished in a neutral colour palette throughout, enhanced by lincrusta embossed walls in the halls and staircase, white radiator covers, a combination of solid oak and Karndean flooring, quality carpeting, practical lighting, and co-ordinating window dressings.  Baillieswells House is accessed via a sweeping tree-lined driveway illuminated by Victorian style lamp posts.  The entrance vestibule and reception hall are central to the ground floor accommodation, with many of the inter-connecting rooms returning to this area. Beyond here is an inner hall with cloakroom/toilet. The elegantly proportioned drawing room features a focal white fireplace, front facing bay window, and doors leading through to the east sun lounge, which has French doors opening onto a sheltered lawn, and the formal dining room which is linked to the kitchen by a corridor with built-in storage facilities. The fabulous dining kitchen is fitted with an array of wooden shaker-style cabinets complemented by contrasting black work surfaces and white ornate tiled upstands. Quality appliances include an integrated dishwasher, and free-sanding refrigerator; the black “Stoves” dual-fuel cooking range is brand new; and the sink is fitted with a spray tap and waste disposal unit. The stunning west facing sun lounge is on open-plan concept with the kitchen, opens onto a large elevated timber deck, and offers an ideal area for large social gatherings.  Located to the front of the home is a comfortably proportioned home office, again with bay window and handsome fireplace. To the rear and adjacent to the west sun lounge is the spacious games room with ornate feature fireplace and fitted bar in one corner, which also accesses the outside deck via patio doors. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a convenient cloakroom/toilet, and utility room with sink, laundry appliances, and built-in storage cupboards. Ascent to the first floor rooms is via a light filled, carpeted staircase with original dark oak balustrade. The tasteful master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect, benefits from a range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and drawer units, and enjoys the luxury of an en-suite shower room fitted with twin white “Roca” basins housed in a vanity cabinet; wc; and a recessed shower enclosure fitted with marble effect wet-wall panelling and mains shower. Also on this floor are two further double sized bedrooms, one benefiting from bespoke fitted furniture, and each with a bay window; and the fully tiled family bathroom fitted with white sanitary ware, comprising: wc; wash basin in vanity cabinet; double-ended bath; and glazed corner shower enclosure with “Mira” electric shower. The carpeted staircase continues to the top floor where a bright central study offers access to a further two double bedrooms. These top floor rooms all enjoy a pleasant frontal aspect with far-reaching open view towards the Dee Valley and beyond.  In immaculate order and presented in “ready to move into” condition, interior viewing of this high calibre home is essential to fully appreciate the scale of accommodation, tranquil garden grounds, and enviable location.
