Aberdein Considine property 38 Matthew Drive, Peterhead in an Evening Express Editorial.
THIS cosy semi-detached property in Peterhead has truly been a family home for Brian Bruce – as he first moved there when he was just seven years old. Brian, now 36, lives in the three bedroom house with his partner, Emma Matthew, also 36, and their two daughters Ruby, 6, and one-year-old Rosa.
Emma, who sells pick-up trucks for Finnie 4x4, said: “We bought the house from Brian’s parents when they decided to move and it just seemed ideal.
“The area is great, it’s not a really busy street and it’s a hugely family-orientated area,” she added.
Emma and Brian, an operations supervisor for Weatherford, moved into the property 11 years ago and have since replaced the windows and doors as well as updating the kitchen and the bathrooms.
The decor throughout the home is fairly neutral and bright and creates a modern and spacious living space.
Emma said: “We’ve got a family room which is great as we can all be in there, but doing different things.”
The family room forms part of the modern and spacious kitchen which features patio doors leading onto the large patio area to the rear of the property, which is ideal for those looking for a low-maintenance garden.
Adding another personal and family touch to Emma and Brian’s home is the fact their street name is Emma’s last name and the one opposite shares Brian’s last name. The couple will be sad to leave the home which has been part of their family for years, but plan to remain in the Peterhead area.
Emma said: “Toys are taking over the house, so we really need an extra room for the girls.”
She added: “I am really going to miss my neighbours from both sides as I’ve got the best neighbours ever.”
