This fabulous mid-Victorian townhouse is located just outside Banff in a former hospital converted in 2011. The setting, location, and building are exceptional and the property is a worthy addition to Hamish Homes’ portfolio. Number 5 is mid-terraced in a delightful stone frontage and has its own front door accessed directly from the gravel courtyard, which opens into an attractive hallway with hard flooring and blue-grey walls.
The large living and dining room has the high ceilings and soaring paned fenestration expected in properties of this age. Five large windows allow the space to be filled with light, with three to the front and two to the rear offering wonderful views, including an outlook over an immaculate lawn with a borrowed landscape of fields and rolling hills.
The kitchen is L-shaped and to one side with elegant country-style off-white floor and wall cabinets, a polished wooden worktop and white metro tiles as a backdrop to the ceramic hob, extractor hood and white sink. This beautiful kitchen also includes another of the fabulous large windows and blue accents to reflect the decor elsewhere.
A cloakroom is decorated in greys with a red and grey feature wall, attractive checkerboard black and white flooring, and sanitaryware.
Carpeted in grey, a winding staircase leads to the first floor and three rooms, each with high ceilings. The principal bedroom is in a soft grey decor and is a charming shape with a lovely sash window overlooking the gardens. A generous en-suite shower room is attached, with another of those beautiful deep-set windows and built-in cupboards.
The second bedroom is also decorated in grey, with a view overlooking the courtyard at the front and a built-in wardrobe. A third smaller room is used as a study but could equally be used as a craft room or childs nursery.
A large family bathroom features a bath and walk-in shower and good quality white sanitaryware.
Outside, there are immaculate communal gardens featuring sloping lawns, shrubs, mature trees, and parking to the front of the building. This is an exceptional property and one that is sure to be popular. Its remarkable setting and history as a Victorian hospital, plus its proximity to Aberdeen, Elgin and Inverness, make it very desirable, so do consider an early viewing.
Banff is a picturesque town located on Scotland’s Aberdeenshire coast. Historically, it was known for its fishing and maritime industries, although employment has since diversified into sectors like tourism, retail, and local government. The town is approximately 66 miles from Aberdeen, 65 miles from Inverness, and 36 miles from Elgin.
With a population of about 4,200, Banff is community-based while enjoying access to essential services, including healthcare, education, and emergency services, underlining the town’s self-sufficiency. The stunning coastal landscapes and the nearby Banff Bay provide opportunities for leisure activities such as walking, nature, sailing, and bird-watching, attracting both locals and tourists. The River Deveron is renowned for its abundance of trout and salmon, and fishing is a popular activity in the area.
Banff’s architectural heritage, especially the Georgian buildings in the town, reflect a rich history that goes back centuries. The town is a convenient hub for surrounding communities and embodies historic charm and modern services. Its location and comprehensive facilities make Banff an attractive place to live, work, and visit.
The local community in Banff is tight-knit and welcoming, often engaging in cultural festivals, art and community events. Retail services consist of local shops and branded outlets combining traditional Scottish products and modern goods. The climate is typical of the Scottish coast, with mild summers and cool, wet winters, lending to a lush and fertile landscape.
