A DREAM mansion which has SEVEN living rooms, a cinema and tennis court is on the market for less than £2m.
Netherton Lodge, in Bieldside, Aberdeen, mixes traditional decor with modern fixtures and fittings after undergoing an extension in 2011.
The property dates from 1920 and after the upgrade 10 years ago the house offers many delights inside and outside, as it comes with 2.5 acres of land – offering lush gardens and views of the Grampian mountains.
The detached house is on the market for £1.95m and is perfectly suited for families or those who enjoy hosting guests as it has eight bedrooms.
Seller Savills say the 101-year-old property has been completed to an “exceptional specification”, with traditional period features such as a wide use of oak, picture rails, stained glass windows and open log fireplaces.
However, for those interested in more up to date interiors, the property also boasts an airy orangery and a cinema room, ideal for film enthusiasts.
Elsewhere inside, the property has seven living rooms, perfect for hosting guests or throwing parties.
There is a spacious L-shaped drawing room with handcrafted fitted cabinets and views over the sprawling gardens.
The roomy kitchen has plenty of modern appliances and fixtures, including a Siemens induction hob, a dishwasher, Samsung freestanding fridge-freezer and a double oven-microwave.
There is also hardy granite worktops and a central island with a shelved larder.
The rest of the property offers plenty of living space, with an informal family room for casual dining and breakfasts.
The main bedroom has a spacious and luxurious en suite shower and bathroom, with views over the garden and Royal Deeside.
The “stylish” cinema room comes complete with a home bar, perfect for relaxing movie nights.
Other contemporary features include the striking floating staircase, with wide oak treads and glass railing supports.
There is also a spacious basement offering plenty of room for storage.
Outside, there is a large gravelled driveway with the courtyard providing plenty of parking space and a luxury triple garage block.
There is also a timber log store, a large garden store, a workshop, complete with underfloor heating, plus an all weather she and greenhouse.
The extensive landscaped gardens have 200 trees, including historic Douglas firs, and lawns with a fish pond.
There is a soft fruit growing area, which forms part of an orchard – with approval already in place for bee hives and protection offered to trees and plants with deer and rabbit fencing.

There is also a fenced tennis court with a nearby summer house and BBQ area, perfect for outside dining and entertaining when the weather’s nice.
Property agent Fiona Gormley said: “This is a home for all seasons. Garden and mountain views are on full display during long spring/summer days from the conservatory and orangery.
“Autumn/winter days encourage hibernation for a movie night in the cinema with under floor heating. I also love meandering through the policies to the reflection pond.”
