New homes in Midlothian

Premium housebuilder, Stewart Milne Homes, has introduced a new development of family homes in Gorebridge, just 12 miles from Edinburgh city.

Premium housebuilder, Stewart Milne Homes, has introduced a new development of family homes in Gorebridge, just 12 miles from Edinburgh city. Kirkhill Rise launched earlier this month following the success of the housebuilder's Hopefield View development in Bonnyrigg - a similar collection of homes proving particularly popular for its sought-after combination of quality, location and value.

Like Hopefield View, the new Kirkhill Rise development comprises an impressive collection of three, four, five and six bedroom homes located in a picturesque rural setting a short drive from the city centre. With homes priced from £162,950, the new collection also offers exceptional value for money, particularly for those looking to move out of Edinburgh city centre where the average price of a three bed property is more than £234,000 1.

Marlyn Boal, sales director for Stewart Milne Homes Central Scotland, commented: "Buyers are looking further and further beyond the bypass to find better value for money and quality of life. The more rural locations across Midlothian, like Gorebridge and Bonnyrigg, are becoming increasingly popular, particularly with families, as they offer the best of both worlds; an idyllic setting close to a main route into the city. Our continued success at our Hopefield View development is a prime example of this growing demand and we are confident the new homes at Kirkhill Rise will be equally well received."

Househunters can currently choose from five individual styles of home; from a three bedroom terraced mews to a three-storey five bedroom detached villa. Each home presents bright spacious interiors and a flexible modern layout including a generously-sized living room and fully fitted eat-in kitchen with double French doors leading onto the rear garden. Master bedrooms come complete with either a fully fitted or walk-in wardrobe while larger styles also enjoy an en suite shower room.

All kitchens are finished to a high specification, complete with the latest appliances including stainless steel oven, hob and hood and a choice of quality units, worktop and fixtures for an all-important personal touch. Larger homes also include an integrated fridge-freezer, built-in dishwasher and microwave.

Detached homes are available in a selection of styles to suit a variety of individual tastes and lifestyles. Each features an expansive breakfasting kitchen and family area at the heart of the home. Some styles are designed with a separate formal dining room while others offer the option to create a fully open plan dining kitchen. Larger styles are also finished with guest en suite facilities and fitted wardrobes to the second and third bedrooms for maximum space and convenience.

Meanwhile, the five bedroom Kellingside style home offers three spacious storeys of living space with the top floor comprising two double bedrooms and a Jack 'n' Jill en suite shower room, ideal for older children looking for their own space.

All homes come complete with a family bathroom and WC on each floor, a utility room or store and built-in storage throughout. Four and five bedroom detached homes also include a single garage and private driveway.

Since its launch last weekend (12 January), Kirkhill Rise is already proving a hit with a number of reservations placed in its first week on the market.
