Gartly Station is a two-bedroom village home that will admit its new owners to an Exclusive Club living in a former station on a working railway. These disused stations on the current network rarely if ever come up for sale as homes. Gartly in Aberdeenshire is among what is thought to be just a handful of lived-in disused stations on the Scottish network.
Converted to a two-bedroom single storey residential home with the use of local and highly skilled trades persons the property exudes character and grandeur at every turn. Great care was taken throughout the renovation to ensure that a wealth of traditional features were retained, the original stained glass window station name, fireplaces, ceiling roses, pitch pine doors, ceiling cornicing to name but a few.
The kitchen was the stationmasters office and a waiting area adjacent to the platform is now the formal dining room. The main bedroom was once the ladies waiting room, while the living room was the gentlemens waiting room. A guest bedroom, immaculate bathroom, office and conservatory completes the accommodation.
The property further benefits from immaculate fresh decor, sash & case windows and oil fired central heating system. A one-off opportunity to own something quite special and due to its location potentially a huge investment property with holiday homes continually demanding high prices.
The garden grounds are gated with borders containing a wealth of mature shrubs, plants and seasonal flowers with sporadic planting of mature trees. Another unusual feature is the recently fenced trackside garden. The former platform is laid out with grass and flower beds. Although belonging to ScotRail, this ground is maintained on an informal basis by the sellers with the owners consent. A patio from the conservatory is perfect for al-fresco dining and enjoying the sun and views. The grounds are gated and fenced making a safe environment for children and pets alike. Off-street parking is available for multiple vehicles a garden shed completes the gardens.
All fitted floor coverings, blinds, curtains, and light fittings are included in the sale.
