We chatted to some of our lovely residents Keith and Agnita, who recently relocated 400 miles to Aberdeen, to explain why they chose to move to Forbes Place.
Keith and Agnita met three years ago whilst at work in Coventry. When Keith was offered a job transfer, the couple decided to uproot and make the move 400 miles to Aberdeen. Initially, Keith moved by himself, and spent several weeks staying in a hotel room while looking for a suitable rental apartment for him and his fiancée.
I saw the development when I was travelling to work and I really wanted to check it out for Agnita and I. As soon as I saw the show apartment I knew it was the perfect place for us to stay.
2 bedroom concept apartment
Keith and Agnita rent a 2 bedroom concept apartment with a unique loft-style layout, featuring a central open plan living-dining-kitchen area. There are two double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes, they have their own luxurious en-suite and there’s a further shower room along with plenty of practical storage space.
It’s the perfect base for us to explore the city from, Dyce train station is only a short walk away and we have an underground car parking space, which is really unusual for a rental development. There’s also space for visitors to park as well as residents, which is really handy.
Fully furnished properties
Agnita, who started working at a hotel in Aberdeen shortly after moving to Forbes Place, says the move from Coventry to Aberdeen was surprisingly stress free.
It was the easiest move we’ve done, despite the fact it was the biggest in terms of distance. Our last was to a fourth-floor flat and there wasn’t a lift, so getting the dishwasher and washing machine in was a nightmare!
The only thing we needed to bring with us to Forbes Place were clothes and toiletries, the whole flat was completely kitted out with really nice furniture – we could have had people round for dinner that night if we’d wanted to.
Everything is of a really high quality, and works very well. Anywhere we have lived previously has always needed a little bit of TLC to make it feel like home, whether it be a bit of decorating or sprucing up, but as soon as we moved in here it just felt natural and cosy.
We were really impressed that the internet connection was included in the rental fee and there’s also access to a satellite dish. Once we moved in we could relax and enjoy our new life in Aberdeen straight away, she added.
Keith and Agnita have been enjoying their comfortable lifestyle at Forbes Place for more than three months now and say they enjoy being near the River Don and having the convenience of the nearby supermarkets at Stoneywood, making the weekly food shop stress-free.
This is a great place for young professionals, families with young children and people who are waiting to get on the property ladder. There’s a great sense of community within the development and all our neighbours are really friendly.
The fact we don’t have a private landlord to deal with has made life so much easier. We know the Dandara Living team really well and they’ve been so helpful with day to day things like taking in packages, and always answer our questions straight away. Having them onsite has given us great peace of mind, says Keith.
Everything we need is right here, and we’re so glad we made the move.
