Impressive Residential Farm with Striking Views and Equestrian Opportunities set in a Sought-After and Accessible part of Aberdeenshire.


Tappies Farm is situated in a private position, with the farmhouse located centrally within the farm with views across open countryside to the well-known Aberdeenshire landmark of the Bennachie hills to the north. Tappies offers rural living while not being remote, with nearby villages at Kemnay (less than 2 miles) and Monymusk (3 miles). Alford and Inverurie are also easily reached and there is quick access to both Aberdeen Airport and to Aberdeen City itself. The newly opened Western Peripheral Route around Aberdeen now provides easy access to the south.

The surrounding area comprises rolling farmland, winding rivers and native woodlands, offering ample opportunities for walking, biking or riding from the front door of the property. This part of northeast Scotland is famed for its outdoor pursuits, including renowned fishing on the Don, as well as the River Dee. High and low ground shooting is available on local estates. There are golf courses at Kemnay, Insch, Alford and Inverurie, with skiing at the Lecht and Glenshee. There is unrivalled walking and riding in the surrounding hills, particularly over Bennachie which gives a striking backdrop to Tappies Farm. Castle Fraser is within a mile of the property, a National Trust for Scotland owned castle along with gardens and walking within the estate's grounds. The boundary of the Cairngorms National Park is only 20 miles to the west.

Primary schooling is available at Monymusk and Kemnay, with secondary schooling in Kemnay or Alford. There is a good selection of independent schools in Aberdeen City including Robert Gordon's College, Albyn School, St Margaret's School for Girls and the International School of Aberdeen. There are two universities, Aberdeen University and Robert Gordon University alongside the North East Scotland College.

There are local shopping facilities in Kemnay and further shopping, business and leisure facilities in the larger commuter towns of Inverurie (7 miles) and Westhill (10 miles). Aberdeen, 'the Granite City', is only 18 miles away. It is a very cosmopolitan city and has the amenities expected of a major centre with a wide range of shopping, leisure, entertainment and cultural activities, together with extensive business facilities.

Aberdeen International Airport is well served by both domestic and international airlines. There are train services to the south, including a sleeper service to London


Tappies Farm presents a rare opportunity to purchase a lifestyle property in the heart of Aberdeenshire, with an immaculately presented, newly extended and renovated farmhouse arranged to accommodate modern family living, set in a private location within 127 acres of grassland fields. With the addition of a range of traditional and modern outbuildings and sheds, with immediate access to the land, Tappies offers endless prospects for personal enjoyment or business ventures through farming, equestrian, leisure and tourism (subject to any necessary consents).

The current owners have invested in all aspects of Tappies throughout their tenure. The main transformation has been to bring Tappies Farmhouse from its original state to today's striking, comfortable home which has been both thoughtfully and tastefully converted to create a welcoming combination of open-plan living alongside smaller spaces and a sunroom that showcases the property's magnificent countryside views. Alongside this has been the recent conversion of one of the traditional outbuildings to a gym with upstairs leisure space, ideal as an overspill of further family accommodation.

The farmland surrounds the house and buildings on all sides, providing privacy.

Acreage: 127.48 Acres
