‘Ev­ery­body needs good ’

Spacious prop­erty in quiet cul-de-sac

Evening Express (City Final) - Home Life - - FAMILY LIVING - By Donna Ewen

AHIGH de­gree of pri­vacy is what’s on of­fer in the rear gar­den of the Dun­can fam­ily’s home in Cove Bay. But there were many more rea­sons why they fell in love with their three-bed­room home. Donna, 37, a part-time med­i­cal sec­re­tary, said: “My hus­band John ini­tially viewed this house while I was in Portlethen view­ing an­other one. “He can be quite fickle, so when he phoned while I was view­ing the other prop­erty, I knew this one had to be quite spe­cial.” Donna, who’s mum to James, 16, Re­becca, 8, and Jessica, 6, wasted no time con­tact­ing her agent, and se­cured a view­ing for later that day. “The minute I walked in to the house, I could eas­ily see its po­ten­tial. “The open-plan liv­ing room is my favourite room as it is so spacious, and even when we are all in the room there still seems to be loads of room.” The ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a lounge, din­ing room, break­fast­ing kitchen, util­ity room, mas­ter bed­room and en-suite, two fur­ther bed­rooms, and fam­ily bath­room. Donna and John, 43, an off­shore ser­vice spe­cial­ist with Hal­ibur­ton, were also de­lighted that the house was lo­cated in a quiet cul-de-sac. Now the girls are get­ting older, Donna and John are look­ing to up­grade to a four-bed­room home in the area. “We’d like each of our girls to have their own room, so they can put their own per­sonal stamp on it,” Donna said. “But we will miss this house, as it has not only been a very happy fam­ily home, but we have bril­liant neigh­bours too.”
