Numbers one and two, Craigforthie Cottages, Inverurie in Aberdeenshire offer a wealth of potential to buyers and at a bargain price.


They could very well be turned into holiday cottages, the purchaser could live in one and rent out the other, or the whole building could be reconfigured to one house.

But given that the two little cottages are side by side, in a quiet spot a couple of miles from the village, it is perhaps not a flight of fancy to see them appealing to two friends, an elderly set of siblings or even a couple who want to remain together but prefer their own space.

They are laid out as mirror images with an entrance hall, lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom on the ground floor and a bedroom and box room upstairs.

Each has its own garden and parking.

Craigforthie Cottages are in an idyllic rural location, surrounded by what was formally Keithhall Estate and with lovely open views towards Bennachie.

They are in walking distance of Inverurie, two miles away, which has shops, pubs, restaurants and a train station.

The properties also offer an easy commute to Aberdeen, Bridge of Don, Dyce and Westhill.

Both require full modernisation so if they were purchased by different people, you could perhaps expect an air of competition in the twin renovations.

Craigforthie Cottages are on the market with Galbraith for offers over £105,000, each.

This is just less than buying a one-bedroom flat in Edinburgh.
