Falling in love with its tranquil West End setting, Eric Duncan and his wife Barbara built their own unique home more than three decades ago.
Now looking to downsize the retired couple are hopeful they’ll be able to stay in the same area they’ve called home for so long.
Eric said: “The house and gardens are just far too big for the two of us now.”
The beautifully designed five-bedroom property would be perfect for those looking for a unique house in a rural-like location within the prestigious West End area of Aberdeen.
Eric thinks his house would be ideal for “a family or people with young children”.
He said: “The house is ideally suited for everything. The location is perfect. It’s near the city centre but also near the country as well. We had a baby deer in the garden this year.”
Eric’s favourite room of the immaculate property must be his lounge.
He said: “The lounge was specially designed to look different. I wanted it to be different from anywhere else.”
