Five reasons Lochter is perfect for growing families
We carefully selected our Lochter development location in Inverurie to give homebuyers the best of both worlds. Set in tranquil surroundings, homes at Lochter feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of a busy town. Yet, the development still sits in the perfect location to take full advantage of all the services and amenities Inverurie has to offer.
We understand that growing families have many factors to consider when trying to find the perfect home. And though there is a long list of reasons that it is an ideal location for kids of all ages, we’ve selected just five of our top reasons to choose Lochter.
The relaxed surroundings of Lochter
The Lochter development spans across 100 acres of land and is the perfect location for families. As with all our developments, we’ve worked hard to create an atmosphere that welcomes you in and immediately makes you feel at home. Set back from the main Oldmeldrum road, Lochter provides a secluded and quiet spot away from busy traffic. So you’ll know that your kids can play safely and you’ll get the peace and quiet we know is essential for new parents.
A variety of childcare options nearby
Inverurie is home to many nurseries, and most are within a short 10-minute drive of Lochter. Accommodating children from 0-5 years, and with some providing Out-of-School services, you’re sure to find the nursery that is right for your family. Some even offer pre-school education to give your kids the perfect start to their education in Inverurie.
Excellent primary and secondary school facilities
When we say the local primary school is nearby, we mean it. Uryside Primary School, which includes a nursery, sits adjacent to the Lochter development, so it’s just a hop, skip and a jump away – perfect for that early morning school drop-off! When it’s time to move up, Inverurie Academy (which forms part of the Inverurie Community Campus) is just a short 10-minute drive away. The brand new £55m facility replaces the former Academy and welcomes over 1,000 pupils from the catchment area.
Activities for kids of all ages
When school is out, there’s still plenty to keep them occupied as activities for all ages surround Lochter. A 5-minute drive will take you to the popular Hoodles Playbarn, which caters to kids aged 2-12. The Skyline Trampoline Park is less than 10 minutes away, where kids aged four and upwards can enjoy 30,000 sq ft of indoor trampolines. And suppose you’re up for a bigger adventure. In that case, the whole family will love a trip to Bennachie, where you can enjoy walks designed for all ages and abilities, as well as interactive displays at the visitor centre. There is also the popular Lochter Activity Centre a short drive away. Just hop in the car, and in 15 minutes, you’ll be enjoying a fantastic family day out.
Homes that adapt to growing families
After all the schoolwork and extra-curricular activities, it’s time to enjoy your family home at Lochter. With spacious rooms, kids (and big kids) have plenty of room to play. Extensive storage means you’ll always have space for toys, no matter how long they want to hang onto them. And kids will love our generous gardens – lots of room to explore and let their imaginations run wild.
These are just some of the reasons we think our Lochter development is ideal for families of all shapes and sizes, but we have so much more to tell you. Book an appointment and bring your family along to our showhome at Lochter to see for yourselves.
