Life is chaotic for Laura and Phil Stephen, but their busy family has had plenty of room to grow thanks to their five bedroom bungalow in Newburgh near Ellon.
The couple hoped it would be their forever home when they moved in three years ago but are now relocating due to work.
It’ll be a mammoth move with seven-year-old Joshua, three-year-old Jacob, and little Jesse who is only two months old.
There’s no forgetting the family dog, BuzzBee, who has enjoyed the coastal walks nearby.
Phil, 33, set to work with the paint pots as soon as the family moved in and number 24 has been completely transformed.
“We wanted to put our own stamp on things so we repainted every room and put new carpet down, it was pretty hectic but very much worth it,” he said.
“The thing we love the most is the space on offer, with our two eldest racing around it was important to us to have a house which worked for all the family.”
Versatility is certainly the order of the day and the spacious lounge is the perfect spot to unwind in.
There is a large bay window which comes with a charming built-in window seat, and Laura and Phil love to unwind in the lounge come the evening.
“After all the kids are in bed we love to come in here and just relax, it feels like more of a room for the adults and it’s really nice to have that,” said Phil.
The kitchen is great for family meal times with a built-in breakfast bar that can seat five people.
The gorgeous red range cooker will remain alongside the larder fridge and freezer.
French doors provide access to the garden and there’s also a lovely dining room for more formal entertaining alongside a family room.
“The kids love the family room because we’ve turned it into a play room for them,” said Phil.
“When you have two young kids and a baby there seems to be plenty of toys but we’ve managed to limit it to that one room.
“The boys love playing in there so it is the best of both worlds, the kids can have fun and me and Laura still have the lounge,” said Phil.
If your little one is a fan of superheroes all the hard work is already done, as one bedroom has a brilliant superhero theme.
There’s also the large master bedroom which has built-in wardrobes and the remaining three bedrooms are all of good size with excellent storage.
The family bathroom is fully tiled with a roll top bath while the shower room has a double shower cabinet.
Head outside to the lovely garden which has been mainly laid to lawn and will be easy to maintain. There is also a patio and decking area which will be perfect for the summer months.
The driveway can accommodate multiple cars so you never need to worry about parking.
“We’ve loved the area and we’re only a short walk away from the school and the nursery,” said Phil.
“We love the fact that we have the best of both worlds with gorgeous walks on the beach as well.”
