Set within easy reach of the Cairngorms National Park, the city of Aberdeen was named as the best place to live and work in Scotland in a 2019 report by Demos-PwC. Alongside the stunning local scenery, another of the reasons for this was the low property prices relative to earnings. This offers residents an excellent standard of living – driven in large part by the oil and gas industry. The lively harbour city is also known as the ‘Granite City’ or ‘Silver City’ thanks to its historic granite buildings.
Milltimber the area in itself is a lovely semi-rural area with plenty of surrounding green space and close by walks along the river dee and the countryside. Ample local shops are nearby, although car is needed to reach them unless you like a near 2 mile walk to the nearest one for basics and location wise is great from the city centre and Deeside with the village being set just off the North Deeside Rd allowing great views over the surrounding landscape.
Please review your development:
The design of the houses are of very good quality and typically with a new build house you would expect quite a lot crammed in to as much space as possible with lower heigh ceilings you would get in a traditional older house but are designed to be bright and light internally with spacious open plan kitchens in many with decent sized gardens depending on the house type bought.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Semi detached homes have a strange and bad layout with the outdoor patio area right next to your neighbours patio, with only a small wooden (and visible through) wooden fence separating both houses, rather than being in the middle of house or at opposite ends, so if you are entertaining or having a quiet day in your garden sitting in your patio and the neighbours are also, then expect to hear every single word they are saying and vice versa. Very poorly thought out. No privacy
What is the best feature of your home:
Layout is fairly spacious for a new build, high quality finishes (generally) and bright open plan kitchen with good size garden.
