Like the fine wine in its cellar, this period property just gets better with age.
And whether you’re a wine connoisseur or not, this Cults home is sure to tickle the tastebuds.
It was 21 years ago when Julia Stuart and her husband Steve fell in love with Windyridge.
“It was the look of the house with all its period features including wood panelling and original art deco fireplaces that first attracted us to the house,” said Julia.
“We also loved the open outlook over the Deeside valley and the Cults area.”
The couple, who share their home with their dogs Holly and Lilah, have put their own special stamp on the property, creating a garden, a sun terrace and even a wine cellar.
But Julia, who had a beauty salon, and Steve, who worked for Shell, have put their wonderful home on the market as they prepare to retire to the Highlands.
The couple say it’s the perfect property for those who want to live in a great area of Aberdeen, like a private garden and appreciate all the characteristics of a period house.
“We’ve met some neighbours that have become great friends,” said Julia.
“We’ve also enjoyed the fact that it’s a very secluded house with no overlooking properties and we’ve held some great parties here.
“It’s also very close to Deeside Golf Course and it’s close to the primary and secondary schools.”

First impressions are excellent as the home enjoys spectacular views over the Dee Valley.
Once over the threshold, the four-bedroom property is bright and airy throughout.
With its beautiful box bay window and open fireplace, the lounge is the perfect place to sit back, relax and take in the scenery.
