Not too long ago, Aberdeen was voted the best city to live in Scotland – and the second best in the UK.
A report by PricewaterhouseCoopers and think-tank Demos found the Granite City scored highly in a number of categories, including jobs, health, income, house prices and travel time.
On top of that, the city has a bustling night life, independent cafes and shops with something for everyone and plenty of leisure facilities including HM Theatre and The Tivoli.
And while the city may also hit the headlines for being home to lots of million-pound homes, it does have properties to suit every budget.
Like this two-bedroom, ground-floor flat, GFR, 28 Portland Street, which is on the market for offers over £175,000. It is a great flat for a great price and would suit professional couples, a young family or those looking to downsize. It would also be ideal for those in the buy-to-let business.
Forming part of a well-maintained granite building, the flat is a great size and has lots of lovely bright and airy rooms. One sure to impress is the spacious lounge which is flooded with natural light thanks to two large picture windows. It is a great room which has lots of space for free-standing furniture and offers lots of flexibility.
Other rooms of note include the fully-fitted kitchen which has lots of storage and ample work surfaces, two good-sized double bedrooms and a modern shower room with two-piece white suite and separate shower cubicle.
There is also a large basement on the lower ground floor for extra storage which belongs exclusively to the flat. All carpets, blinds, light fittings and shades will be included in the sale along with all kitchen white goods. The wardrobe, chest of drawers and one bed will also be included in the sale.
For the city dweller this is the ideal property, located in the centre of Aberdeen with all the shops, restaurants, cafes and much more within walking distance. All areas outside the city are easily accessed by car or public transport including all industrial business parks, Aberdeen Airport, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and all universities. A number of local shops are close by and it is well placed for access to Duthie park with its wide open space and its winter gardens, and riverside walks are also only a short distance away.
