Being quite central to Aberdeen was a massive attraction of Charleston Cove. I wanted to be close to the city centre, but not close to the hustle and bustle. Everything is right on the doorstep and there’s a great community feel. There are quite a lot of modern shops together with a little Sainsbury’s, a hairdressers and a home shop. Charleston Cove has a New England feel to it; the wooden frontage on the houses with the stylish entrance doors make this place look different and modern.
Everything has been absolutely fantastic, from the part exchange and not having to sell our house, to moving in. It was just so easy from start to finish. There was no selling cost and there was only one viewing before my old house was sold. We’ve never had a brand new home before and we love having a new build. We could pick our kitchen, en-suite and carpets. With different designs of houses and a lot of well-maintained landscaped areas, it’s very attractive here. Some houses have been built partly with wooden cladding and others have a traditional brick design, but the grey colour detail makes everything come together. We’re far enough away from town, but still close enough to easily get there.
