It has been five years since Peter and Alison Davies moved to Corsdean, and they have made the most of their quirky home in Huntly.
This Edwardian property is filled with character, and the couple were also attracted to its excellent location.
They are now hoping to downsize but will certainly miss Corsdean and its period charm.
The exterior alone is eye-catching and you’ll find more retained features on the inside.
From high ceilings with intricate coving to traditional style picture rails, this four bedroom home is ideal for those who are looking for something that bit different.
“We just thought it was perfect and we particularly loved the location,” said Peter.
“We can walk to all the local amenities which has been really handy.”
Having fallen for Corsdean’s charm, Peter and Alison went on to make some significant improvements.
They have been careful to maintain as much character as possible, but called in tradesmen to make the upgrades.
“We’ve done quite a lot of work, which included things like upgrading the heating system,” said Peter.
“We also created a much bigger bedroom by removing an en-suite.
“We liked the layout of the house from the beginning.”
