First time buyers, Samantha Low and Lewis Johnston recently took their first step on the property ladder and bought their first home with Stewart Milne Homes in Cove, just south of Aberdeen.
The couple moved into the well-designed three bedroom Argyll home after viewing a number of properties and Charleston was the perfect place to start their life together.
Samantha and Lewis both work in the oil and gas industry, Samantha in recruitment and Lewis as a welder fabricator, and they had previously lived with their respective parents while they saved the deposit for their dream home.
Growing up in Portlethen, Samantha was familiar with the area and was drawn to its close proximity to Aberdeen city but without the high cost that comes with living right in the city centre.
As well as picking up the keys to their brand new home, Samantha and Lewis also benefited from Stewart Milne Homes’ First Time Buyer plan which gave them a choice of stylish furniture and a home cinema system to ensure they had everything in place from the moment they turned the key. The spacious Argyll home provided an ideal canvas to bring the interiors to life and the pair opted for a contemporary colour palette with grey and muted tones throughout.
The Argyll is an eye-catching home with plenty of flexible space to meet the couple’s needs. The entrance hall leads directly to a light and airy living room which continues to a spacious kitchen and dining room complete with SMEG integrated appliances, breakfast bar and French doors out to the private garden. A convenient downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor of the home.
Upstairs the home features a great master bedroom with en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobe, two further bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, and a good-sized family bathroom with fitted vanity furniture.
Lewis said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with our new home. It’s exactly what we were looking for with spacious rooms, plenty of storage and in a location we are both familiar with. We had looked around at a few properties but as soon as we saw Stewart Milne Homes’ Charleston development, we had our hearts set on it.
“The location is fantastic; it has everything – not only are we close to Aberdeen city centre but Cove itself has its own bustling community while still feeling quite rural. There is also a good selection of shops and amenities nearby which is very handy. Charleston also has a nice community feel which is important to us and we’re really looking forward to spending our first summer in our new home.
“Stewart Milne Homes’ sales consultant was excellent. She knew it was our first time and she really made it easy, explained the process and was there every step to help. It all went like clockwork.”
Karen Reid, Sales Manager at Stewart Milne Homes, said: “Buying your first home is an exciting time with lots of things to think about from deposits to interiors. Our First Time Buyer Plan has been created to provide support through every step of the process, from helping to find the perfect home to working with solicitors to make the experience as simple as possible.
“We offer buyers a great choice of furniture to choose from, ensuring that their new home not only features all the right elements but also meets their individual tastes and style. Our plan also ensures that homeowners have everything in place to enjoy making the most of their new home from the moment they turn the key.”
Stewart Milne Homes have created an exclusive collection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes in the highly sought after area of Cove. Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the north east coastline, and situated just to the west of the picturesque historical fishing village of Cove, Charleston is a wonderful place to call home.
