Looking for a bit of alone time, but also want to make sure you’ve got an architecturally significant pad? Well, here’s the place for you. A gorgeous mid-century house is up for sale in Orrock, Aberdeenshire, and it combines striking design with a truly phenomenal rural location.
Now, looking at the house, you’ll no doubt notice something strange about the roof. While most houses have a pointy roof, this place has the opposite: a ‘butterfly roof’. And what does that mean? Well, it makes the building a bit more wind-proof, but also means that you can have huge windows. And huge windows this place certainly has.
Inside, the Orrock house boasts 2,100 square feet of space spread over a single floor. The primary living area is kitted out with underfloor heating, a neat marble fireplace and timber ceiling cladding. Because the house is slightly elevated, it’s also got phenomenal views out through its massive windows.
The rest of the house contains four bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, balcony, garden, workshop and garage space for two cars. Here are a few more pics of the place.
Plus, while this place is pretty quiet, it’s not that isolated. Orrock may be in rural Aberdeenshire, but it’s only around 30 minutes’ drive from the city of Aberdeen and ten minutes from the beaches of Balmedie.
So how much will all this set you back? Well, the price given by its listing on The Modern House places the house at a sturdy £450,000. Not bad for such a stunning gaff, eh?
