What our Aberdeenshire customers love about their new homes

20th Jul, 2023

Moving into a brand new property is an exciting experience - and with carefully considered internal layouts plus an unrivalled build quality and internal specification, it’s no surprise our Kirkwood customers have a LOT of great things to say about their new homes!

We’re always willing to hear feedback from our clients, and love catching up with them to find out how they’re settling into their new home, what they enjoy most about the development - and the buying process. From desirable features to friendly communities, we’ve shared the top talking points from our customers who moved into a new Kirkwood home in Aberdeenshire…

1. High quality features, finishes and appliances

From walk-in-wardrobes and en-suites, to German kitchens and state-of-the-art appliances, we take the time to include desirable features within our homes to benefit our customers’ lives.

Our clients have shared which features and appliances they are loving most in their new homes in Aberdeenshire, and how they played a part in their purchase decisions…

“A selling point we noticed was that the level of finish is far more superior than we could have imagined. Features such as having a bath and shower in our en-suite really make a difference to our day-to-day life. The fact we have windows in all the bathrooms is a bonus, especially in such a picturesque location which can be enjoyed even when brushing your teeth in the morning!” - Cliff, Ury Estate

“The master bedroom has a generously sized walk-in-wardrobe and a beautiful en-suite which feels really luxurious - with an en-suite in the second bedroom as well. Overall, it's a really nice, neat-looking house that's perfect for what we were looking for." - Callum, Sauchen

“I really like the kitchen - not only the space but also the modern appliances and finishes, like the worktops which are exceptional. The touch screen on the oven is a personal favourite amongst the features.” - John, Alford

“When I viewed ‘The Craig’, I was completely surprised – this house was the perfect fit for me. It has lovely features that are usually found in larger homes, such as a utility room and a stunning en-suite with a shower enclosure and lovely centralised bath - it’s quite the indulgence!” - Fiona, Dunecht

2. Versatile layouts

The versatility of our new home layouts is another feature our customers love about their new homes in Aberdeenshire. When it comes to designing a home, one size does not fit all, which is why we offer a wide range of internal layouts to choose from, allowing our customers to find the perfect fit for their particular needs and preferences.

“The big family area is definitely our favourite part of the house. The integrated kitchen, family and dining space means that the boys will not only come down to eat dinner, but also sit on the sofa and watch TV with us. It means we can actually get them to engage in conversation, which is a challenge with teenage boys!” - Ruth, Stonehaven

“The open-plan kitchen and dining area is amazing and will be ideal when we eventually expand our family. The separate lounge is also so spacious and bright. My wife took her L-shaped sofa which perfectly splits the room for relaxing, and she has commandeered the other half for her home office set-up - but there is still plenty of room, it’s not crammed at all.” - John, Countesswells

“We picked this home mainly down to the spacious kitchen, dining and family area which is all open-plan. We both have pretty big families so having somewhere we would be able to host and properly socialise was very appealing to us. Also the size of the garden - since we have a young son and a dog who both just adore being outside, it was perfect.” - Colleen, Alford

3. Outstanding developments across Aberdeenshire

Another characteristic our customers highlight is the strong community feel throughout each development. From parks and playgrounds to community events, there’s so many opportunities to really get to know your new neighbours and enjoy being part of a new community.

“As for neighbours, everyone that we have had the chance to meet has been lovely, so we feel quite fortunate that a very peaceful and welcoming community seems to be growing.” - Rachel, Banchory

“The development is really peaceful and really quiet - you barely hear anything so it feels very private! Our neighbours have been so lovely and it’s a great community, we usually see people out walking their dogs or children playing together. I’m also very fortunate that one of my best friends bought a house 2 rows away from us.” - Callum, Sauchen

“I love the sense of community here, it’s definitely a friendly place to live. There’s also a local garage and shop for everyday items, an excellent bar and restaurant and a wider range of amenities just a few minutes drive away at Westhill.” - Fiona, Dunecht

“Everyone we have met is very friendly and pleasant. I had read somewhere beforehand that there is a family feel to Ury Estate, and now living here I would completely agree with that. During the festive season and into the New Year, all the neighbours were inviting one another in for a drink or two, which was lovely.” - Cliff, Stonehaven

4. A seamless sales process with skilled sales advisors

Buying a new home can seem daunting, so a knowledgeable, helpful sales advisor is imperative to guide you through each step of the journey. At Kirkwood, our sales team have the expertise required to help customers find the perfect home to fit their specific requirements, assist with their choices, furnish updates and help with any questions they may have throughout the process. Some of our Aberdeenshire customers have shared their experience with our team during their new home journey…

“Our Sales Advisor was extremely helpful and patient and was never once pushy throughout the whole process. She listened to our needs and wants, and helped us to personalise our home. We had fun choosing our kitchen doors and bathroom tiles. We received regular updates from Kirkwood both during and after the buying process which made it a very positive experience overall.” - Sheena, Sauchen

“I fully believe we were given an individual service and were never treated like a business deal. Everyone at Kirkwood offered us a personable approach.” - Colleen, Alford

“I had regular updates so I knew what was happening and felt well supported through the whole process. Kirkwood also has a new customer care app which is a fantastic tool, easy to navigate and very user friendly. If I have any questions or issues, it’s really helpful as I can quickly submit them on the app and have a speedy response.” - Fiona, Dunecht
