Kick Start the New Year at One Dalhousie

Kick Start the New Year at One Dalhousie
One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions every year is undoubtedly to get fit and what more convenient way to whittle off the Christmas pounds than with a home gym.

Walker Group has just launched a new five-bedroom property at its new One Dalhousie development in Bonnyrigg, which comes with ample space for working out in the privacy of your own property.

The grand Roxburgh Corner has a double garage, which could easily be transformed into an exercise studio, along with a separate family room offering an alternative space for hobbies and fitness. There’s lots of room for eating and entertaining too with a large front-facing lounge and a well-laid out kitchen with dining area. A separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor of this attractive home.

Upstairs there’s an impressive amount of space for having friends and family to stay – not only does the master bedroom feature a dressing room and an en-suite, the second bedroom also has its own shower-room. There are a further three bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom. It is priced from £395,000.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “With our busy lifestyles today it can be hard to squeeze in time to go to a class, especially if you are fighting through traffic to get there after an already busy day. Having space for a gym at home can make a real difference to your waistline.

“The Roxburgh is a great house as it has such a flexible layout that it can be adapted to suit the life you lead, whether you use the extra space for hobbies or for running a business from home.”

Also just released is the stylish four bedroom Canterbury Corner from £331,000. The Canterbury has a 23ft long open plan kitchen and family, a separate utility, welcoming reception hall and integral garage complete the ground floor. The spa-like bathroom has a contemporary cube bath and sanitaryware, while the large master bedroom has its own ensuite and a swoon-worthy dressing room. There are a further three bedrooms.

One Dalhousie in the sought-after commuter town of Bonnyrigg will feature 27 homes all with their own solar panels along with high performance insulation, double-glazing and energy efficient heating systems.

Located to the north of Dalhousie Dairy, One Dalhousie will offer a choice of three, four and five bedroom properties when complete, with homes currently being sold from the nearby Hopefield Park development.

The homes will offer lots of other clever touches too, including lots of fitted storage in the kitchen and bedrooms and radiator valves that are positioned to make vacuuming easier. Many of the properties feature utility rooms, garages and family rooms that provide vital extra space. Bonnyrigg’s town centre, with its avenue of trees, has a selection of local stores including a chemist, bank and post office. A Tesco supermarket is a short drive away and larger high street stores are available at Straiton Retail Park.

There’s lots to do in the surrounding area for sports lovers – golfers will enjoy playing in the magnificent parkland setting of Broomieknowe Golf Club while fitness fans can work out in Lasswade Leisure Centre which has a wide array of facilities including a gym, games hall, 25m pool, dance studio, badminton hall, squash court, a gymnastics academy, a library and a café.

Also just a short drive away is the National Mining Museum Scotland, a five star visitor attraction, where you can retrace the footsteps of thousands of miners and their families. The Rossyln Chapel is a must visit for history lovers and fans of Dan Brown’s novel and film the Da Vinci Code. Further information is available on 01506 413101 or www.walkergroup.co.uk.
