Say Hi to the Hywood

Say Hi to the Hywood

Walker Group has just unveiled the perfect starter home at its Ellwood development in Kirkliston.

Its new Hywood semi-detached home is ideal for first time buyers, with a generous 16ft long lounge, separate kitchen opening out to the garden, downstairs cloakroom, two good sized bedrooms and family bathroom. 

And priced at £170,000 it is well below the average price of a two bedroom flat in Edinburgh, which is just under £244,000 *.

Close to open farmland and the beautiful River Almond, Ellwood is great for commuters, who can take advantage of regular bus services from Kirkliston to Edinburgh and the M8 and M9 nearby.

Sandy Casey, Director, Walker Group, said: “The advantages of buying a house instead of a flat in the city centre are many – not only do you get a lot more space for your money, your own garden and front door but a chance to be part of a thriving neighbourhood in charming village within easy reach of the city.”

And with Help to Buy currently available on properties buyers only have to pay a 5% deposit with the Scottish Government taking a 15% stake in the property.  

When complete Ellwood will feature 14 different styles of homes situated in a beautiful setting less than ten miles from Edinburgh.   

Ellwood is Walker Group’s fifth development in Kirkliston and will offer some of the company’s most sought after two, three, four and five bedroom homes, many with generous open plan kitchens, separate dining rooms, family rooms and en-suite bathrooms.

The development benefits from the charm of a village community and is within walking distance of the nursery and primary school.  It is a short distance from the local leisure centre with its gym, sports hall, all weather floodlit pitches, grass football pitch and outdoor tennis courts, perfect for fostering the talents of the next Andy or Jamie Murray. 

The community centre is also a hive of activity offering everything from Mums & Toddler Groups to art classes and samba drumming courses!

Kirkliston is close to Queensferry with its quaint cobbled streets lined with cafés where you can take a boat tour under the famous Forth Bridges. Also nearby is Hopetoun House one of Scotland’s most beautiful stately homes.  

Ellwood’s proximity to Edinburgh means that The Gyle shopping centre is nearby as well as the amenities of the capital. For outdoor enthusiasts there is a wealth of golf courses on the doorstep and Ratho Climbing Centre is less than a ten minute drive. Another popular destination in the area for families is Deep Sea World.
