Roxburgh Corner Set to Make A Splash With Buyers

Roxburgh Corner Set to Make A Splash With Buyers
UK adults will spend on average 416 days of their lives in bathrooms according to a new poll from B&Q, so it’s no surprise that home buyers expect a lot from what was once the most humble room in the home.

Walker Group Director Sandy Casey says she has seen a huge rise in demand for additional ensuites and cloakrooms at the housebuilder’s developments, with many potential buyers agreeing with the seven out of 10 people surveyed who said sharing a bathroom was frustrating.

Layout and specification of bathrooms and ensuites is also becoming more important, according to Sandy. She said: “Bathrooms used to be considered functional but now many of our buyers see them as a place to pamper themselves and escape from the stress of the outside world. According to the poll women spend on average 29 minutes in the bathroom a day while men spend 23 minutes, so it is important they offer a relaxing environment.

“We include Ideal Standard contemporary cube baths in all of our homes at One Dalhousie. Larger properties like the Roxburgh feature wash basins with stylish built in vanity units in the bathroom and there are storage units fitted in the ensuites.”

One property which wouldn’t disappoint bath-lovers is the newly released Roxburgh Corner at Walker Group’s One Dalhousie development in Bonnyrigg.

This detached five bedroom home comes with not only a plush family bathroom with bath and separate shower stall but two ensuites, along with a downstairs cloakroom.

Priced at £395,000, this home also comes complete with upgraded large format luxury tiles giving it that extra wow factor.

Sandy said: “The Roxburgh Corner is just a beautiful property and we have designed each bathroom, cloakroom and ensuite to make the most of the space on offer.”

The Roxburgh Corner also features a large lounge, open plan kitchen and dining room and a separate family room which would make an ideal home office or workspace. This bright airy room has an extra window giving lots of light for close work and patio doors into the garden, offering a quiet haven away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.

Along with a separate utility and cloakroom, it also comes with a double garage – perfect as a workshop for a craft business or for storing documents or business equipment. This stylish home offers five bedrooms upstairs, with the master also featuring a dressing room as well as the ensuite shower room. The second bedroom also has its own ensuite shower-room.

Buyers can see the very high level of specification on offer at One Dalhousie by visiting the newly launched Roxburgh Corner showhome designed by Carol Yates.

One Dalhousie in the sought-after commuter town of Bonnyrigg will feature 27 homes when complete 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, the homes offer lots of other clever touches too, including ample 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 0131 654 1505 or www.walkergroup.co.uk. The showhome and sales office at One Dalhousie are open from Thursday to Monday from 11am-5pm.
