Pitlochry Launch – Eco-Credentials in the Heart of Pitlochry

By 24th November 2015Press Releases

Edinburgh based property developer Eskgrove Homes has launched their latest development, Ballenlochan, in Pitlochry.   The development of 10 bungalows has 2 property types – the 2 bedroom Moulin and the 3 bedroom Kincraig.   By combining exceptional materials and simple, elegant design, these homes offer an outstanding, modern living environment.

Since launching in 2008 Eskgrove Homes continue to stand out in the new build market, not just in terms of methods and materials, but also in terms of how they 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 the home owner’s fuel bills.

To understand what is unique about an Eskgrove home, you have to go back to the start of the build process and how it’s different from other new build homes.  Each home 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.  Each wall panel is factory manufactured, in Scotland, and delivered to site complete with external cladding, insulation, plasterboard and even the doors and windows fitted! All materials are very carefully sourced and combined with the precision of their assembly under factory conditions, the result is more accurately built homes than offered by traditional means. 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 visitor parking along with spacious interiors with the 3 bedroom Kincraig measuring 974 sq ft and the 2 bedroom Moulin measuring 934 sq ft.

Colin Cumberland, Managing Director commented “This is our first development in Perthshire and we’re thrilled by the response we’ve had.   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.”

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 £239,000.   Viewing by appointment.    For further details on Eskgrove Homes please log on to www.eskgrove.co.uk
