Stand out from the crowd
If you are familiar with Methlick, then you’ll be sure to recognise Primrose Cottage. The Scandinavian-style property was built by Andrew and Karen Vaitkus two years ago, and its striking timber exterior, finished in Siberian larch, makes it stand out from the crowd.

“We were living in Tarves when we bought the plot and as our son went to the Methlick school we were familiar with the area. We were attracted to the plot because of the views and the fact that it was nice and quiet, yet isn’t far from the village,” Andrew, 54, said.
