If ever there was a home that could boast having a stunning a view, then 1 Achath Steading can easily fit the bill.
The former show home, built by New Forest Homes, has provided in abundance the peace and tranquillity Jody and Simon Corrigan craved after they both returned from working abroad.
Jody, 31, who is currently on maternity leave from her job as manufacturer planner with BHGE, said: “Simon and I were living in the centre of Brazil for a year. When we came home we were keen to move to a rural place.”
So, on what was a beautiful September evening in 2014, Jody and Simon, 38, who works as an engineer, also with BHGE, viewed the steading.
They were both captivated by the stunning clear skies, rolling countryside and mountain views.
“It was the complete contrast of what we had come from and it took our breath away,” she says.
The Corrigans have loved living in the stunning steading.
Last year, they were blessed with the arrival of twin boys, Ruaridh and Finn, who are now eight months old.
The steading, which has been built to the highest of spec, is decorated in neutral tones and benefits from underfloor heating in the ground floor.
The view from the decked area at front via the lounge speaks for itself and yet it is only 15 miles from Aberdeen.
The property is within close proximity to the new Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.
The accommodation comprises a hallway with plenty of storage, lounge/kitchen, utility room, shower room, master bedroom with en suite shower room, two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and versatile single room. The gorgeous bathroom completes the layout.
“This has been such a very happy home for us, says Jody.
“We have loved our time living here.”
