STEVE Thoms and part­ner Laura Reid have had some very happy times liv­ing in their lovely home. But they are in no doubt their hap­pi­ness was ce­mented in their new-build with the ar­rival of Al­fie, their three-yearold springer col­lie cross. Steve, 36, a key tank man­ager with Falck Nutec, said: “Laura and I spent six months search­ing for this house. We were both re­ally im­pressed with the spa­cious­ness on of­fer. “An­other plus for us was it be­ing lo­cated in a cul-de­sac, and the south-fac­ing gar­den at the rear.” Within three months of mov­ing into their fourbed­room de­tached home, Steve and field ser­vice co-or­di­na­tor Laura, 26, wasted no time in get­ting Al­fie. “We’d al­ways wanted to get a dog, and have had Al­fie since he was a puppy,” Steve said. “The rear gar­den is def­i­nitely Al­fie’s patch, and is a bril­liant size for him to run around in. “We’ve no doubt he will re­ally miss the back gar­den when we move.” The ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a lounge, din­ing room, kitchen, util­ity room, cloak­room, mas­ter bed­room with en-suite shower room, three fur­ther bed­rooms and a fam­ily bath­room. The prop­erty, which is mainly dec­o­rated in neu­tral tones, is in Bar­ratt Homes’ Os­prey Vil­lage De­vel­op­ment. In­verurie is con­ve­niently lo­cated for the air­port, and has both pri­mary and sec­ondary schools. It also has good shop­ping fa­cil­i­ties and a wide range of sport­ing and recre­ational at­trac­tions in­clud­ing an 18-hole golf course. Steve, Laura and Al­fie are search­ing for their next home. “This has been a great fam­ily home for us, and we’ve loved liv­ing in In­verurie,” Steve said.
