Landsborough Set to Cook Up A Storm at Long Meadow

Landsborough Set to Cook Up A Storm at Long Meadow
With new research showing that 18-21-year-olds are baking more than previous generations including their parents, the need for a multi-functional kitchen and family space has never been greater.

According to the report from Privilege Insurance, shows like the Great British Bake Off have inspired a new generation of bakers with 73% of Generation Z (those born after 1996) taking up the activity. Wannabe Mary Berrys and Paul Hollywoods will love the four bedroom Landsborough just released at Walker Group’s Long Meadow development in Ormiston, near Tranent.

Boasting a stunning 25 ft long open plan kitchen with family room and dining area, this is the perfect place to take out the mixing bowls and test out those showpiece recipes. Fully equipped with double oven and integrated fridge freezer, there’s also a separate utility room, handy for hiding away any kitchen disasters.

Sandy Casey, Sales Director Walker Group, said: “The resurgence of baking really is astonishing, with research showing that young people are more likely to bake more than not just their parents but their grandparents as well. Having a generously-sized kitchen that everyone can enjoy whether they are cooking, watching television or reading a book can be a key ingredient for a harmonious household.”

Priced from £258,000, the ground floor of the Landsborough also has a spacious lounge, cloakroom and garage. On the upper floor there is an en-suite master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Long Meadow will feature 146 three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete, located 14 miles from Edinburgh.

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.
