MARK and Amy Dunnett have spent a very happy seven years in fam­ily-friendly Black­burn. When the pro­fes­sional cou­ple, who both come from Aberdeen, de­cided to tie the knot in 2005, Black­burn ticked all the right boxes for them. Mark, 38, a ROV su­per­vi­sor for Sub­sea 7, said: “Amy works as a teacher and at the time she was work­ing at var­i­ous schools in the shire. “I was off­shore, so Black­burn was per­fectly lo­cated for the air­port.” Mark and Amy, 32, moved from their two-bed­room flat in the city cen­tre to

their new,

“Gar­dener’s de­light”

de­tached home in 2004. “It was bril­liant mov­ing into a brand new home,” said Mark. “Other than re­paint­ing and hav­ing our rear gar­den ter­raced we haven’t had to lift a fin­ger.” And since mov­ing in, their fam­ily has grown with the birth of daugh­ter Zoe, who is now three years old, and son, Adam who is 19 months. The ac­com­mo­da­tion at their de­tached fam­ily home in­cludes a cloak­room, lounge/din­ing room, din­ing kitchen, util­ity room, four bed­rooms and a large bath­room. With the ex­cep­tion of a splash of colour in the chil­dren’s bed­rooms, the cou­ple have kept the decor of their lovely home neu­tral. The prop­erty is lo­cated in a quiet cul-de-sac and the fully-en­closed gar­den is a gar­dener’s de­light – with plenty of space for al fresco din­ing. With Amy tak­ing up a new teach­ing post in Aberdeen, the Dun­netts are on the move. “This house has been a bril­liant home,” said Mark.
