A new house for a new year in Aberdeenshire

Muir Homes have just welcomed its first residents to its prestigious Riverside of Blairs development in Royal Deeside. And now the site will have a brand new showhome as the company open a second at the development.

Matthew Cochrane, Tasha Law and their son Quinn

Matthew Cochrane and Tasha Law, together with young son Quinn who is nearly two, were the first residents to move into the exclusive development, buying a unique four bedroom Elrick villa. The Elrick was specifically designed for Blairs, and is the only one of its type in this phase of the development.

Blairs, which is five miles from Aberdeen City Centre, offers a choice of four, five and six bedroom homes, all detached designs with top class specification.

Oil industry worker Matthew and beauty salon receptionist Tasha are delighted with their new home. Matthew says: “It is fantastic to have such lovely views of the River Dee at the back of the house – it’s quite breathtaking. We fell in love with this and the house itself – we loved everything about it from the layout to the external design.”

Evelyn Pethick, Sales Advisor at Riverside of Blairs says: “The development is progressing well and we have some stunning designs to offer, as well as a new showhome coming soon – a four bedroom detached Westray design.”

There is a Westray currently available at Blairs; the four bedroom detached house with double garage is priced at £495,000 and has a kitchen with open plan dining room. The lounge is to the back of the property, with French doors opening out onto the patio. On the ground floor is a cloakroom, and a double garage with utility area. Of the four bedrooms two have en-suites as well as a modern and contemporary family bathroom. There is also plenty of storage space throughout.

Other house types on offer include the Nairn, a five bedroom house with a lounge and dining room offering dual aspect views, together with patio doors which extend the living space out into the garden. There is also the Strathearn, another five bedroom design with a spacious lounge, separate dining room and an enviable open plan kitchen/family room leading through to a very large utility room.

In total, six different properties, all four and five bedroom executive homes with a top class specification, including Siemens appliances; hardwood timber finishes, Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, contemporary styled and walk in wardrobes and high end German designer kitchens with stone worktops, are available for immediate entry, meaning that buyers can secure one of these outstanding homes at a first phase pricepoint.
