An unique opportunity to buy an intriguing 5 bedroom detached house, category C listed, 6-bay Canadian design Arts and Crafts style bungalow retaining fine interior details. Designed by renowned Architect Alexander Ellis, brother In-law of the owner, and built in the late 1890's by the prominent Aberdeen Master Mason, John Morgan for his own personal use as a hunting lodge and country retreat. Having visited Montreal, he came home with some new ideas about Architecture, and built 'Woodcote', a bungalow after the manner of much of what he saw on the outskirts of Toronto, and Montreal. The property is set in approximately 1 acre of secluded private garden grounds. Clearly defined areas with well established shrubs and trees as well as a small woodland area at the bottom of the garden.
