Step up to Ashton Gardens
Walker Group has launched a new phase of three bedroom terraced homes at Ashton Gardens in Kirkliston to meet demand from ‘second steppers’.
The developer has just released the beautifully designed Albury to address the shortage of homes for buyers making the transition from a small apartment into their first family home.
Priced at a very affordable £199,000, the Albury offers all the advantages of a low maintenance property but with the added benefit of its own front door and back garden.
Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “Kirkliston is only ten miles from Edinburgh but you get so much more for your money – instead of a small flat in the city centre you get a spacious home designed for family life in a lively village community.
“The Albury has already proved popular in other developments with young couples who want spare rooms they can expand into if their family grows.
“We are also surprised to find a lot of interest from downsizers and first time buyers who, as a result of the financial crisis, missed out on taking the traditional first step on the property ladder and purchasing a flat and instead are skipping that stage and moving straight on to the next home up.
“Designed to make the best use of space, the Albury has ample storage and a fantastic choice of kitchen and bathroom units. Lots of great features come as standard such as worktop lighting and ceiling downlights in the kitchen, a free standing fridge freezer and oak internal doors.”
The Albury has a bright lounge with french doors to the garden, a front facing kitchen, a welcoming long hallway and a downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs the master bedroom has an ensuite and both it and the second bedroom have fitted wardrobes. There is also a spacious family bathroom.
Also available is the three bedroom Belmont, priced from £255,000. At the heart of this lovely home is a large kitchen with dining area and doors leading out onto the garden, which is perfect for entertaining. A downstairs WC and utility room completes the ground floor. Upstairs is the master bedroom with ensuite, two further bedrooms and family bathroom.
Ashton Gardens is Walker Group’s fourth development in Kirkliston and features a range of spacious three, four and five bedroom homes with generous open plan kitchens, separate dining rooms, family rooms and en-suite bathrooms. Properties are also available for reservation at Walker Group’s Hazelbrooke development, which is located nearby.
Designed to be among their greenest homes yet, the properties have high performance insulation, double-glazing and energy-efficient heating systems. All homes are built to a high specification with fitted wardrobes, fridge freezers and excellent storage.
Ashton Gardens is perfect commuting distance to the city for those who prefer the sanctuary of fresh country air to the hustle and bustle of the nation's capital city. It is surrounded by greenery with breathtaking views of the Pentland Hills.
The development benefits from the charm of a village community and is within walking distance of the nursery and primary school. However, its close proximity to Edinburgh means that The Gyle shopping centre is nearby as well as the amenities of the capital. For outdoor enthusiasts there are a wealth of golf courses on the doorstep and Ratho Climbing Centre is less than a ten minute drive.
The show home at Ashton Gardens is open 11am to 5.30pm Thursday to Monday and further details are available by contacting 0131 333 2006 or by visiting the website, www.walkergroup.co.uk
