Where should you look for the cream of a city’s property? Lettingweb are investigating the top areas in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, and Edinburgh.

In our new series we take a closer look at the most affluent areas in each of Scotland’s key cities before finally looking at the most expensive area to live in the entire country.

This week it’s Aberdeen, the ‘Granite City’, that has been keeping the recession at bay with an energy industry that continues to boom. Whilst that’s great news for property investors and businessmen and women, its energy industry has also made Aberdeen a fairly expensive city in which to settle down. Out of a costly city though, AB15 stood out as by far the most expensive area in which to rent.

Close to Forresterhill and Mid Stocket, this self-contained apartment in a two storey granite (of course it’s granite, we are still in Aberdeen after all) terrace is essential west end Aberdeen: a traditional building built to keep out the harsh winter combined with a modern, stylish interior.

Inside you’ll find large rooms and a rangemaster cooker, a luxury inside a city and definitely of use against those windy, frozen months.

Further out of the city in suburban Kingswells, this ‘Dwellinghouse’ offers family accommodation fit for a king(swells). The village is on the up as more people look to escape the confines of Aberdeen city centre, and it’s easy to travel into the city via public transport or the ‘Lang Stracht’.

If you can’t face maintaining both gardens over the colder periods, the property comes with a gardener to take care of them for you.
