Wonderfully spacious, this home has proved to be quite the adventure for the Macpherson family.
In many ways it has been a home of firsts for them.
Mum, Helen, 47, said: “My husband Neil and I moved here in December, 2001.
“It was our first family home together, and all three of our children have been born here.”
Helen and Neil, 48, an accountant with Glen Grant Distillery, also tied the knot a few years after moving in.
Helen and Neil spent an age searching throughout Aberdeenshire to find their family home.
“As soon as Neil and I drove into Orchard Grove, I had a feeling, this was the one. I hadn’t yet even seen the inside, I just knew.”
And it’s very easy to see why Helen and Neil were so bowled over.
The accommodation comprises a lounge, upgraded kitchen/family room, dining room, utility room, cloakroom/WC, five double bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower room.
While the house has been a life adventure for Helen and Neil, for their three children – Joe, 14, Oli, 9, and Anne, 5 – the enclosed garden grounds have been a playground.
“We each have our own space in the rear garden,” said Helen.
“Oli will be on one side with his dad playing football, the girls are elsewhere, while I sit and have my own corner, and appreciate the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside.”
After nearly 16 years, the Macpherson family are searching for their next home, but it’s going to have to be pretty amazing to top this one!
