5 reasons why Cove is the perfect place to call home

Cove is proving to be an increasingly popular place to live in Aberdeen. And with good reason. Here, we’ll share some of the best reasons people are choosing to move to Cove. 

1. Great community spirit

Cove is renowned for its strong sense of community. People look out for each other. This community spirit is a top reason why more and more people are choosing to live here. And once here, never want to leave.  

Jessica lives in Cove with her husband and newborn baby. She said: “We fell in love with Cove when we moved here, as we loved the amazing community spirit. Everyone says hello to each other when you’re out walking, and it really makes you feel at home.”

2. Perfect location near the city

It doesn’t feel like it, but Cove is just a 10 minute drive from the city centre. It’s the ideal location – an easy commute with the advantage of being able to get away from it all in minutes, escaping the hustle and bustle of Aberdeen with a more relaxed pace and peaceful lifestyle. But if you want to pop into town to meet friends, go shopping or enjoy a night out, you’ll be there in no time.

3. Beautiful walking routes and scenery

Cove’s coastal location means that beautiful scenery will only be a short walk from your doorstep. If you love being outdoors, then you’re in for a treat – as there are stunning walking trails, with some along the edge of the cliffs.  

Stephanie recently moved into a Kirkwood home in Cove, and this is one of the main reasons she chose this location. She said: “My boyfriend and I have a Pug called Cooper, so we knew we wanted to live somewhere with good walking routes. We love walking along the coast, especially when the sun is setting - it’s absolutely beautiful.”

4. Great selection of shops, cafes and restaurants

As more and more people are choosing to live in Cove, the number of shops, cafes and local amenities is growing. Whether you fancy a delicious lunch or dinner overlooking the sea, are looking for a local café to meet your friends or family, or want a shop close to your house so you can easily get your essentials, then Cove is perfect for you.

Within walking distance from Kirkwood’s new development in Cove is Haar Rock Café, iCandy Hair & Beauty, a Sainsbury’s as well as a handful of other shops.

5. The perfect time to buy

If Cove ticks all your boxes, then you’ll be happy to hear that now is the perfect time to buy.
