The Braes is Just the Ticket

The Braes is Just the Ticket
With research showing that people working in cities can make big savings on property prices if they commute by rail from locations within half an hour of their home, it’s no surprise Falkirk is so popular with professionals working in the capital.

With prices up to a third less than Edinburgh, the town is the ideal place for house-hunters looking for competitively priced properties. At Walker Group’s The Braes there is a wide selection of beautiful homes in a quiet hillside location with prices from just £219,000. The housebuilder has just released a new phase of properties including the three bedroom detached Belmont priced from £225,000, the four bedroom Landsborough from £255,000 and Canterbury from £260,000 which can all be reserved for just £99.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “Falkirk is a fantastic location for commuters it has so much on offer – terrific shops, restaurants and cafes, beautiful parks and major cultural attractions like the Falkirk Wheel.

“Yet it is also a quick 28 minute train journey to Edinburgh and 21 minutes to Glasgow so you really can enjoy the best of both worlds.”

The Belmont is a generously proportioned three bedroom property with a bright spacious lounge, open plan kitchen with dining area, separate utility and cloakroom. An integral garage completes the ground floor of the property. Upstairs the master bedroom has an en-suite, there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

A great home for entertaining, the Landsborough has a 26ft long open plan kitchen, dining and family room with separate utility and cloakroom, a front facing lounge and integral garage. Upstairs there are four bedrooms with the master featuring an ensuite and family bathroom.

One of Walker Group’s most impressive homes, The Canterbury has a welcoming hall, a large open plan kitchen with family room, a separate utility and garage on the ground floor. It has an integral garage and four bedrooms upstairs with the master featuring a dressing room and ensuite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The Braes will feature 73 three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete. A stylish four bedroom Gladstone showhome is available to visit on site, showcasing the high standard of property available. 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 Braes is the company’s seventh development in the area and represents a major investment for the Livingston headquartered and Scottish-owned Group.
