“Where we were in Drumoak was right at the top of where the old primary school used to be, it was quite hilly and very windy, so we felt a bit exposed to the elements living there. We had moved into a 3-bedroom home which was a suitable size for us at the time, even when we were thinking of having a family in the long term. However, now working from home has become the norm, we knew one of the spare bedrooms would be utilised as an office and after we worked out all the logistics of the rooms, we just felt like we needed something a little bigger.
“As we were coming from a home that was nearly a new build - having only one previous owner before us - we knew quite quickly we predominately wanted to look at new builds. We didn’t mind too much about the location, it was more the developers that we were focusing on and the range and quality of housetypes they had to offer. That decision kind of dictated where we looked.”
