CHAR­LIE and Karen Pater­son were cer­tainly in the pink when they found their stylish West End home. The cou­ple were on the look­out for a prop­erty with a great lo­ca­tion nine years ago. And when Char­lie, 44, and Karen, 33, set eyes on the strik­ing build­ings of Aberdeen’s Hamil­ton Place, their minds were made up. “We’d never seen pink gran­ite be­fore we went to view the prop­erty,” said char­tered en­gi­neer Char­lie. “The com­bi­na­tion of the pink with the tra­di­tional gran­ite was re­ally strik­ing, and with it be­ing an A-listed build­ing it looked very nice. In fact all the build­ings on this side of the street are listed – it’s a very at­trac­tive street.” Char­lie and Karen, who is train­ing to be a GP, were won over by the peace­ful feel of the two-bed­room prop­erty. In their time there they have dec­o­rated through­out the flat – which oc­cu­pies the en­tire top floor of the build­ing – in­clud­ing lay­ing car­pets and putting in a new kitchen. And with in­cred­i­ble views of the south­ern sky­line of the city, it’s been a stylish home for the pair. Char­lie said: “The flat over­looks a bowl­ing green, which is nice, and you can see right across the city. “The views re­ally are fan­tas­tic. It’s very quiet too – apart from the oc­ca­sional cheers from the bowlers be­low.” The stand­out fea­ture of this flat is the main liv­ing space which is huge and per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing. The lounge is on an open plan with the din­ing room and is a bright, mod­ern room. The kitchen is at­trac­tive, with good qual­ity fix­tures, while the mas­ter bed­room has a lot of stor­age. But of all the things the Patersons will miss when they move on, it will be the lo­ca­tion of their lovely home that will prove hard­est to leave be­hind. “It’s in such a great spot – it’s close to Rose­mount where you’ve got lots of shops,” said Char­lie. “It’s also near lots of bars and restau­rants that we have en­joyed go­ing to – and been able to walk to. “And it’s ob­vi­ously close to the town but is still quiet. Al­though it’s a through road, we re­ally don’t get much traf­fic.” Look­ing to the fu­ture, Char­lie and Karen are now look­ing to set­tle down in a house suit­able for a fam­ily but hope an­other cou­ple

will en­joy the home they’ve loved so much. “It’s a lovely area with so much go­ing for it,” added Char­lie.

“Views are re­ally fan­tas­tic”

“For this prop­erty the lo­ca­tion is the num­ber one. That and the views.”
