‘I can vouch for the great neigh­bours’

Owner lived on street for 22 years

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

SHELLY Aros has loved liv­ing at An­nat Bank in Al­tens – and she was cer­tainly good pals with the neigh­bours. Shelly, 29, grew up on the street and when a prop­erty came up next door to her child­hood home it was too good an op­por­tu­nity to miss. Shelly, who has lived on the street for 22 years, said: “My fam­ily lived next door at num­ber five for many years. “When my hus­band Andrew and I were look­ing for our first fam­ily home, and we saw this prop­erty for sale, we knew our search was over.” Lo­cated in a quiet cul-de­sac, Shelly and sub-sea en­gi­neer Andrew, also 29, moved in with their son Cole who was only eight months old at the time. Fast for­ward eight years, and the pair have also wel­comed daugh­ter, Kiki, 2, to the fold. The cou­ple have re­placed all the win­dows, ex­te­rior and in­te­rior doors, and plastered the walls in the home. A new kitchen, bath­room and cloak­room have also been in­stalled. The im­mac­u­late, spacious prop­erty is sim­ply ready to move into with the min­i­mum of fuss. Shel­ley, a tax su­per­vi­sor with Acu­men, has mixed feel­ings about leav­ing be­hind the house she has such fond mem­o­ries of, but she’s look­ing for­ward to up­grad­ing to a de­tached prop­erty. The ac­com­mo­da­tion at the home in­cludes a cloak­room, lounge, din­ing kitchen, three dou­ble bed­rooms and fam­ily bath­room. And the land­scaped gar­dens are low main­te­nance. “We in­tend on staying in the area,” said Shelly. “I just hope who­ever moves in en­joys liv­ing here as much as we have. I can cer­tainly vouch for hav­ing great neigh­bours!”

GOOD­BYE: Shelly Aros with lit­tle Cole and Kiki.

PROP­ERTY: The three-bed­room fam­ily home in Al­tens.
