When it comes to a forever home, the UK’s top priority features are a back garden and a front garden, a garage, an ensuite and at least three bedrooms according to new research from Nottingham Building Society.

Walker Group has just released a duo of homes which tick all of these boxes and many more at its popular One Dalhousie development in Bonnyrigg,

These generously proportioned homes are designed to suit the needs of growing families with the four bedroom Landsborough priced from £324,000 and the Canterbury, also a four bed, available from £332,000.

Since launching in July 2018, One Dalhousie has emerged as one of the most sought-after addresses in the town and Walker Group is now on its second phase of the development to meet demand from buyers.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group said: “Finding a forever home and a place to put down permanent roots isn’t always easy, but our buyers tell us they love this development and we’re struggling to keep up with demand for homes there.

“We are delighted to be able to release these larger homes which are designed with entertaining in mind with large open plan kitchens and family rooms, perfect for having the whole family round for Christmas dinner or for a Hogmanay party.”

A firm favourite with families looking for extra space, the four bedroom Landsborough has a lovely open-plan kitchen/dining and family room, great storage and good sized bedrooms with the master offering that all important ensuite shower room.

Another fantastic family home, the Canterbury has an impressive kitchen and family room. A generous lounge, welcoming reception hall, utility and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor. The large master bedroom has its own ensuite shower room and swoon-worthy dressing room, there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Buyers can see the very high level of specification on offer at One Dalhousie by visiting the stylish Roxburgh Corner showhome. Located to the north of Dalhousie Dairy, the homes come complete with their own solar panels along with high performance insulation, double glazing and energy efficient heating systems.

They 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.
