Self-Contained Properties in Converted 17th Century Mansion Now Available to Rent

rear-of-propertyHouse hunters are being given the opportunity to experience the mansion-living lifestyle without the high end price tag in rural Aberdeen.

For those seeking a property to rent with a difference, 3 Auchlunies House is a stunning, self-contained three bedroom apartment which makes up part of a converted mansion house.

This 17th century two storey mansion is a B-listed building situated on the quiet and private Auchlunies Estate, which was converted to apartments in the late 1970s. Its adjoining grounds are for the benefit of all its tenants and are maintained by the Estate.

Two further properties are also available to rent on the Estate – 2 Auchlunies House, a self-contained two bedroom apartment and 1 Terrace Cottage, a spacious three bedroom cottage located within the private grounds.no-1-terrace-cottage

Auchlunies is situated just six miles west of Aberdeen and is therefore in good commuting distance for anyone who works in the city, but prefers the tranquillity of the countryside in the evening and at weekends. It is also just ten minutes from Bridge of Dee and 15 minutes from Portlethen.

The three properties are currently available to rent with Aberdeen-based Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for £650 pcm for 1 Terrace Cottage, £695 pcm for 2 Auchlunies House and £850 pcm for 3 Auchlunies House.3-auchlunies-lounge

Michelle Stephen, Assistant Land Agent at Bell Ingram’s Aberdeen office, said: “These three properties offer not-to-be-missed opportunities for any house hunters keen to have their own slice of a converted mansion house, without the high monthly cost.

“We have one two bedroom apartment, one three bedroom apartment and one three bedroom cottage available, which would all suit a young professional couple, a young family or downsizers alike.

“What’s more, all the properties come unfurnished which gives prospective tenants the chance to really make their own mark on the space, and the fact that the expansive grounds are welcome to be used by all those living on the Estate is a rarely available feature of rented homes, and a huge benefit, particularly for families.

“All three properties offer the best of both worlds in terms of accessibility – boasting a peaceful setting which guarantees privacy, while its close proximity to the thriving city of Aberdeen provides the perfect mix of both urban and rural facilities.”garden-within-the-estate
