We are so blessed to have completed on Auchenard. We’d just moved into our first home last year after a long delay so we were aiming to be settled for quite some time in Shawlands. However my love of auction mailing lists and the hunt for a bargain meant that my mind was never far from the next home to fall in love with. In April 2013 I came across Auchenard and realised that it was a fantastic price for a substantial sandstone in Mount Vernon.
We were going through some personal difficulty so didn’t have time to think of moving. I kept in touch with the agent but we felt that it wasn’t the right time to purchase. A month or so later the agent phoned advising the price had been dropped considerably so…. it suddenly felt a lot more like the right time to purchase.
Of course like all houses it took some time to complete – but now its here – and we’re looking forward to injecting some love into our home.
