A chance conversation led Maryisa Mackenzie to paradise… at least, Maryisa’s own little corner of paradise.
Maryisa and husband Mark, 50, fulfilled their life-long dream when they had Cedarwood built for them, three years ago.
Domestic Goddess, Maryisa, 49, said: “Mark and I had viewed the plot but it was only speaking to my friend, Theresa, we realised it was her husband’s plot!
“I knew he had his own business, but never made the connection till then!”
Within nine months, Ardinn Homes built Maryisa and Mark, 50, a retired remote communications satellite manager, this stunning five-bedroom property.
“We liked the original design, but utilised it to meet our own needs,“added mum-of-three, Maryisa.
The accommodation comprises a toilet, open-plan kitchen, family and dining area, sun lounge, sitting room, master suite, four further double bedrooms, of which one has an en-suite and family bathroom.
With daughter Lauren, who is 22 having recently moved to Aberdeen, Maryisa and Mark’s eldest son, Lewis, 24, is planning to find his own place soon.
Which will leave only youngest daughter, Cassie, 12 at home.
The Mackenzies are looking to downsize, but they plan to remain in Turriff.
Maryisa’s eye for detail is apparent in every room and it is ready to simply place your own furniture.
“We’ve loved living here, but a house this size needs to be lived in,” finished Maryisa.
