Seven-bedroom house and two cottages on sale in Aberdeen for a bargain price

Fintray Lodge, formerly the Dower House for the Fintray estate on the outskirts of Aberdeen has been owned by the same family for more than 50 years.

It came to the market last year but has now been relaunched following a 30 per cent price drop.

The sale of a former Aberdeenshire dower house boasts a spectacular incentive – two cottages are included in the price for the seven-bedroom home.

The house alone, a traditional Victorian country home with beautiful views over the Don valley, is valued at £500,000 but two cottages, modernised and offering a rental income, are now included in the £500,000 sale price.

Gardener’s Cottage and Dalus Cottage have been refurbished and let, generating a rental income that, together, should net over £1,000 per month, which would go some way to pay the mortgage on the main property.

The lodge is now in need of a 21st century makeover but offers great potential.

It sits in a lovely mature woodland setting with a striking collection of broadleaved trees, including beech, oak, birch and chestnut, while daffodils and bluebells carpet the ground in the spring.

It is well placed for commuting to Aberdeen and the airport, and only a mile from the new Aberdeen ring road.
