Thanks to Stefi Orazi for the spot on this one, which was built in 1983 after being ‘meticulously planned and designed’ by the current owners. As you can work out from that, the house has never been offered for sale in the past.

Note also that as well as being an eye-catching design, it’s also a noted one too, having been recognised with a Civic Society Award and a Civic Trust commendation in 1984.

The house goes by the name of Gavelcruive and is located in the ‘sought after’ west end area of Aberdeen. See the listing as to why it is a desirable place to live.

I’m more interested in the house and the architecture, which is distinctive and with a few lovely design touches within to take it a few notches above the ordinary.

Love the bright internal living space, as well as the open staircase, the exposed brick, that wonderful bedroom with circular window and balcony and an overall design that has a hint of Scandinavian architecture about it. Not as radical as some I have featured, but a family home with character and style.

As for space, a pine-lined entrance vestibule leads into the reception hall, which is open to the dining room area and that eye-catching staircase leading to the upper living accommodation. Beyond that is a dining kitchen with all the modern appliances you would expect of a contemporary space, a utility room.

From the hall, a doorway leads into the ‘spacious’ sitting room with views over the garden via a bak of windows, as well as a pine-clad wall, wood or coal-burning open fireplace, display alcoves and glass shelving.

A large swinging panel door splits the sitting room to the office/bedroom four with a glazed door offering access to the rear garden.

The open staircase leads first to the mezzanine landing with storage, then onto the first-floor landing, which is currently described as a ‘super study area. Also on the landing is a shelved walk-in cupboard with lighting and access to the attic and its substantial storage space.

The principal bedroom is probably the star of the show with that large circular window, fitted storage, a vanity unit and access to the timber-decked balcony area.

It looks like the space outside is pretty generous too. The rear garden is mostly laid to grass with a variety of flower beds and mature trees, with a timber shed and an entrance driveway at the front finishing things off.

Fancy it? The house is up for sale at offers over £395,000.
