Featured Property – Art Deco House in Scotland

If you crave a touch of 20th century glamour, but don´t want the hassle of caring for an older building, this property could be the perfect home for you.  Scotland was at the forefront of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements and this heritage is beautifully re-interpreted in this house named Wester Waterlair.

This stunning property won an award in 2012.  A superb detached country house, it is set in an excellent elevated site, about 24 miles south of Aberdeen. The stunning design features many elements of the Art Deco movement of the 1930’s featuring crisp white walls in smooth render, blue painted windows, a circular entrance tower, vertical windows rising above the front door, a curved stairway wrapped around the walls and an entrance hall giving the house a light and spacious feel.

Set in lovely gardens, the house enjoys panoramic open views toward the Howe of the Mearns. It has won awards from the Federation of Master Builders and Aberdeenshire Council and was built by award winning local builders Peterkin Homes of Auchenblae.


The interior has been finished to exceptionally high standards and includes: an open plan Lounge, beautiful Kitchen with dining/family area. On the first floor, reached by the curved stairway, there is a ‘snug’ area to enjoy the lovely views, a generous master Bedroom with a luxury shower room plus three further double bedrooms, and family bathroom.

Wester Waterlair includes high quality finishes such as wood floors, an oak kitchen with a Belfast sink and a feature fireplace in keeping with the art deco inspiration.  It also boasts extensive lawns and lovely country views. A double garage with attached single garage/workshop have also been built in the same style, and there is permission for a further three bedroom Art Deco house within the grounds.

Waterlair is nine miles south of Stonehaven, and about half an hour from Aberdeen by car. It is close to the quiet village of Fordoun, just off the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee dual carriageway, with Hotel, Village Hall and Primary School with further amenities available in Stonehaven (9 miles) or Laurencekirk (3 miles).
