Police officer Claire Miller is a self-confessed perfectionist and the interior decor at 78 Devonshire Road is certainly an arresting sight.
One look around her stunning, West End property and it is easy to see the lady has a keen eye for interior design … and a textile degree to boot!
Claire, 50, mum to Georgia, 15, and Lydia, 13, said: “My husband Andrew and I moved to Aberdeen four years ago. We both liked how wide the tree-lined street is, and just how quiet a location it also is.“
Both Claire and Andrew, 50, appreciated the sheer space and potential, and they set forth on undertaking its renovation … leaving no stone unturned while doing so.
“I enjoy putting my own stamp on to a property,” added Claire, who originally hails from Glasgow.
“It took us the best part of two-and-half years to transform it but I just loved doing it.”
Claire has remained completely true to the granite home. She has remained sympathetic to the traditional aspects of the four-bedroom apartment, while introducing more modern features including the fabulous kitchen, shower room, en-suite and luxurious family bathroom, blending each of the rooms together effortlessly.
Indeed, each room you step into at 78 Devonshire Road feels like a new discovery.
Outside, there is an exclusive garden area to the rear and shared drying green. There is also an exclusive cellar, shared wash house, single garage and separate rear lane gate access.
Claire, Andrew and the girls are now in search of their next home.
Which leaves only one remaining question for Claire.
Doer upper or ready to walk into?
“Hopefully, the next one won’t need as much work, but still, I don’t mind doing a little! I enjoy a project.”
