The glistening North Sea, featuring the silhouettes of small boats that slowly drift over the horizon, makes for a spectacular view.
It’s one of the many reasons why 8A South Headlands Crescent in Newtonhill is one of the most picturesque properties available in Aberdeenshire – a fact not lost on the owners of this chalet-style pad, Richard and Michelle Main.
It has been home for the past eight years to the accounts manager, his wife and their two children, Iris and Zander.
“It looked out over the sea and it just had these fantastic views,” said Richard.
It has been the ideal family home with five bedrooms, and a spacious top floor that includes a playroom.
The couple have completely renovated the property, creating a modern and stylish look.
No room has been left untouched and the flexible layout is ideal for busy family life.
“We renovated the whole house,” said Richard.
“There are new stairs, new kitchens, new bathrooms, walls skimmed and new flooring.”

Additions include a modern kitchen diner that incorporates an island.
There is also an impressive lounge with five windows that offers great views of the sea and opens out on to a balcony.
“We spend most of our time in the lounge, for sure,” said Richard, who considers the room his favourite.
“I love the location and I’ll also miss the space and the neighbours.
“There’s also the village of Newtonhill, of course.”
The seaside community has made the perfect base for the family, being an easy commute to Aberdeen and minutes away from Westhill and Dyce courtesy of the AWPR.
And the scenery around the village continues to amaze so much that Richard and Michelle can’t bring themselves to leave the area entirely.
“We’re staying in Newtonhill; we’re just looking for a new project,” said Richard.
