Edinburgh based property developer Eskgrove Homes has launched the Findhorn show home at Wadingburn. The development of 9 detached homes, surrounded by green belt, is situated on the outskirts of Loanhead and the conservation area of Lasswade, a 20 minute drive from Edinburgh city centre and a 2 minute drive from Edinburgh City By Pass.
Eskgrove Homes genuinely stand out, not just in terms of methods and materials, but also in terms of the focus on the build and design. An Eskgrove home is not simply good looking and luxurious, it’s also designed to reduce environmental impact and your fuel bills – (it has a conscience)!
Each home is heated using an air source heat pump making it efficient to run and the extra insulation and air tightness of the exterior walls and roof in each home means that the heat stays within your property, further reducing your heating bills. The homes also have a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system which filters the air in the property ensuring that while your home is warm and energy efficient, you’re also breathing clean air.
The extra insulation isn’t just in the external walls to ensure heat doesn’t escape; it’s also in the internal partitions throughout the house, making them denser and more acoustically insulated ensuring you have peace and quiet in every room. This is also true for the intermediate floor, which Eskgrove proudly says is designed so the ‘herd of elephants’ upstairs does not disturb your reading downstairs.
With all these eco features as standard, you could say you’re future proofing your new home. It’s not just for today, it’s for all those tomorrows too.
Wadingburn, Eskgrove’s second development, is already proving popular with 5 of the 9 available plots being sold off plan. Of course with an Eskgrove property it’s not just about the added insulation and other features that you can’t see that make owning one of these homes a must. The internal layout is pretty impressive too and designed with family living in mind.
The 4 bedroom show home is a Findhorn, one of the smaller house types on the site but still boasts an internal space of 170m2. As you open the front door of the Findhorn you have enough space in the large vestibule to kick off your shoes and store away coats. A glazed panel oak door opens into the bright hallway which leads into a spacious open plan public area and the other ground floor rooms. The expansive use of glass in the public sitting / dining and kitchen area is truly impressive; the double height ceiling above the dining area allows natural light to flow through the downstairs and upper floor, even on the dullest of days. The kitchen has been handcrafted by a local supplier and is complemented by fully integrated appliances including induction hob, double oven, dish washer and fridge freezer. Off the kitchen, there is also a large utility room complete with washing machine and has access to the 1.5 sized garage and rear garden.
As you would expect in a family home, the ground floor isn’t all open plan. At the front of the property there is a cloak room and 2 large rooms which can be used as office space and a TV / family room.
An oak finished stairway leads you upstairs to the bedrooms, bathrooms and the stunning gallery area which won’t fail to impress.
The master bedroom with en-suite has a large dressing room with lots of space to customise your wardrobe. There are 2 additional double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, a large single bedroom and of course the family bathroom.
Colin Cumberland, Managing Director commented “We’re thrilled by the response we’ve had to Eskgrove Homes at Wadingburn. Our style and method of build is truly unique and a change from the standard new build. It’s such a pleasure to have our customers delighted and enthusiastic about their purchase of an Eskgrove home. Our vision is to create homes which give you better tomorrows. We don’t want our home owners to buy a brand new home, only to find out in 10 years time the building technology used is antiquated or obsolete and their fuel bills increasing each year. At Eskgrove we build homes not just for today, but also for tomorrow.”
Eskgrove Homes also has a development at Cardrona, nr Peebles which has been built using the same principles.
Available homes to buy at Wadingburn: remaining one Findhorn at £480,000, one Braemar at £560,000 and one Dunkeld at £695,000. Viewing by appointment. For further details on Eskgrove Homes please log on to www.eskgrove.co.uk.
