Wowed by coun­try­side lo­ca­tion

Spacious home with fan­tas­tic fea­tures

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

FROM its el­e­vated po­si­tion, John Ni­coll’s home in New­machar has a lovely view of the coun­try­side. And it was the lo­ca­tion that re­ally at­tracted John and his wife Dorothy, both 52, to the spacious, four-bed­room prop­erty. John, a char­tered me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer for Ocea­neer­ing, said: “Dorothy and I both wanted a prop­erty with a coun­try­side lo­ca­tion. “We moved in three years ago, and what struck us both the most was just how spacious all the bed­rooms were, plus the won­der­ful rear gar­den.” Dorothy, who works as a se­nior carer for Aberdeen City Coun­cil, and John’s rear gar­den is a real gem. It’s kit­ted out with ev­ery­thing a fam­ily could pos­si­bly to en­joy – in­clud­ing a hot tub. John’s chil­dren from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship have spent many a happy time play­ing in the gar­den. In­side, a large pic­ture win­dow in the lounge al­lows plenty of light to flood through. Dual-as­pect win­dows in the large din­ing kitchen also add to the light and airy feel of the prop­erty. A rear ex­ten­sion houses the fourth dou­ble bed­room with en-suite shower room, and the other three dou­ble bed­rooms are up­stairs. A bath­room on the ground floor com­pletes the lay-out. “We’ve en­joyed liv­ing here, and shall be down­siz­ing,” John said. “But we hope to re­main in New­machar.”

ON THE MOVE: John Ni­coll and, in­set, the light and airy din­ing area in the kitchen.

HOT PROP­ERTY: The four-bed­room home in New­machar.
