Three reasons to move to Long Meadow

Three reasons to move to Long Meadow

Walker Group is unveiling a new phase of three bedroom homes at its Long Meadow development in the historic village of Ormiston near Tranent in East Lothian.

Properties just released include the brand new Hendon house-style and the best-selling Belmont.  

The Hendon is a charming semi-detached home with an integrated passageway leading to the back garden. Inside there’s a well-equipped kitchen, cloakroom and large lounge with dining area and doors opening out onto the garden.

Upstairs the impressive 16ft master bedroom with an ensuite is bound to impress and there are two other bedrooms and a family bathroom. It costs from £195,000. 

A beautiful family home, the Belmont is also semi-detached but has a different layout from the Hendon – the lounge faces to the front of the property and it has a large kitchen with dining area leading out to the garden. It also benefits from an integrated garage and cloakroom.

On the upper floor the en-suite master bedroom overlooks the garden, there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom priced from £205,000. 

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “We have been delighted with the level of interest in Long Meadow since its launch earlier this month. A number of plots have already been reserved and there is a waiting list for some housetypes.  

“It is such a lovely spot and the properties represent fantastic value for money compared to Edinburgh city centre.” 

Long Meadow will feature 54 three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete, located 14 miles from Edinburgh.  The first homes are expected to be ready for occupation in the Autumn.

Also currently ready for reservation are the four bedroom Arlington and Canterbury both priced from £245,000 and the five bedroom detached Brampton from £259,000.

The development will feature some of Walker Group’s most desirable housetypes including the appropriately named Ormiston, another three bedroom semi-detached home.  

With high quality finishes and fittings as standard, each property includes stylish and practical kitchens and bathrooms, along with high-efficiency heating systems and appliances to help ease carbon footprint concerns.

The new homes feature high specification fixtures and fittings such as integrated fridge freezers and turfed front gardens as standard. 
The first planned village in Scotland, Ormiston is a friendly bustling village founded in 1735 by John Cockburn one of the initiators of the Agricultural Revolution. It has a population of just over 2,000.

It offers a choice of places to eat and drink, along with surrounding villages and towns such as Tranent, Pentcaitland and Haddington. There is a range of shops in Ormiston including a Co-op, a new medical centre and a well regarded primary school. Local landmarks include the Great Yew of Ormiston which is believed to be as much as 1000 years old.

Tranent, which is just under three miles away, has all the amenities you would expect of a small town including supermarkets and sports facilities. Kids will love the Loch Centre which has a 25m swimming pool and soft play along with a multi-purpose sports hall and dance studios.

Fort Kinnaird Retail Park is about 20 minutes drive away with its selection of high street names including B&Q, Marks & Spencer and Pizza Express. It also boasts an Odeon cinema.

A short drive from Ormiston is Vogrie Country Park where visitors can explore 11.5 miles of countryside paths, take a ride on the miniature railway or enjoy lunch in the Cedar Tree Café. Other attractions in the area include Glenkinchie Distillery where visitors can take a tour and sample the company’s single malt whisky, the imposing 13th century fortress Dirleton Castle and the golden sands of North Berwick.
