When it comes to choosing the right home, we each have different priorities.
Take Alan MacPhee for example.
Alan, who is 35 and lives in the desirable Aspire Grove in the city’s West End, bought his first-floor flat off-plan.
“I was attracted to the fact it is south-west facing and I was impressed with the space on offer, high ceilings and big windows.”
Alan concedes the fact his favourite pub is merely an eight minute walk, (yes, he’s timed it) may also have been a factor.
Take one glance around Alan’s favourite room – the lounge/kitchen – with its two attractive windows, which both give views over the green surrounding gardens, and it becomes clear why it is his favourite space – it is flooded with so much natural light.
The accommodation at Alan’s quirky yet funky pad includes a spacious hallway, which has a storage cupboard.
The bright lounge is on open plan with the kitchen, which is fitted out with the sleekest gloss wall and base units.
The master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and en suite shower room, while the second double bedroom also has built-in wardrobes.
The family bathroom has been extensively tiled and fitted with a three-piece white suite and shower over the bath.
Alan, an investment director with Brewin Dolphin, has chosen neutral tones and has also opted for earthy tones for his flooring.
Outside, there is landscaped grounds and allocated parking space. It also benefits from a video entry system and lift to all floors.
Alan has loved living in the west end.
So where is he off to next?
“I plan to remain in the area. After all, I could never leave my local.”
