Ballenlochan’s Kincraig house type received a “Highly Commended” in the prestigious Scottish Home Awards which was held at the Glasgow Hilton on Thursday 15th June.

The Scottish Home Awards recognises the achievements of house builders throughout Scotland, Eskgrove Homes, Ballenlochan development in Pitlochry was nominated for 2 awards; Best Small Development and House of the Year for the 3 bedroom Kincraig.

Colin Cumberland, director of Eskgrove Homes commented “the Scottish Home Awards is highly competitive so we were thrilled to have been short listed for 2 awards, to receive a “highly commended” in the House of the Year category is a huge achievement for the Eskgrove team!”

The development of 10 bungalows currently has 4 properties remaining; one 2 bedroom Moulin and three of the 3 bedroom Kincraig.

Eskgrove Homes are different from other new build homes as each property is built using a closed panel timber frame system, rather than basic timber frames. The closed panel timber systems are structurally and thermally engineered to Eskgrove’s exacting standards and requirements, delivering outstanding thermal performance. Eskgrove’s build process is highly engineered to give home owners a super insulated, energy efficient home of unrivalled build quality!

Along with the energy efficient building system, 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 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.

Along with all these eco features as standard, Eskgrove have also concentrated on the design and elegance of their homes. External materials include clay roof tiles, proprietary render and natural timber cladding. This theme of elegant simplicity continues in the interior of the properties starting with the ceiling heights of at least 2.7 metres which immediately add to the overall sense of spaciousness. This is further enhanced by a striking open concept with a spacious living room, dining area, sun area and kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms have also been designed with maximising space in mind.

Each property has a private garden and parking along with spacious interiors with the 3 bedroom Kincraig measuring 974 sq ft and the 2 bedroom Moulin measuring 934 sq ft.

With all these eco features as standard, you could say you are future proofing your new home. It’s not just for today, it’s for all those tomorrows too.

Prices at Ballenlochan start at £249,000. Viewing by appointment or the show home is open every Sunday from Noon – 4pm.
