Cruden Homes’ new homes development, The Granary could see that fairytale dream turn into a reality...

WhatHouse? has previously looked at the true cost of living like a Disney princess in the UK, and if you’re looking for a new home near Edinburgh, living in a fairytale home could be more of a reality than you think.  

In the semi-rural village of Kirkliston, less than 10 miles west from the centre of Edinburgh, and located in the grounds of the former Kirkliston Distillery and Maltings, Cruden Homes are currently converting one of the former distillery storage towers into an extraordinary and unique property which, when completed, will offer the buyer no less than five storeys of bespoke-design living accommodation.

The intriguing floor plan for The Tower includes a ground floor containing a large family room with access to the garden through patio doors. There’s also a utility room and stairs leading to the first floor kitchen/dining area with its well equipped kitchen and separate w/c.

From here, stairs lead to the second floor which features a sizeable lounge with sliding folding doors opening out on to the south facing balcony.

Continuing up again to the third floor, where two bedrooms and a shower room are located. Finally at the top of The Tower, with panoramic views out to the surrounding countryside, is the fourth floor containing the master bedroom with en suite.

Buyers of this amazing home will also benefit from an exceptional interior specification and an acute attention to detail throughout which you would expect from the recently crowned Homes for Scotland ‘Home Builder of the Year 2016’.

Grace Brownlow, sales and marketing director at Cruden Homes (East) says: “The Tower is a truly unique building which is bound to turn the heads of inspired prospective buyers looking for that rare combination of ‘must have’ appeal with being so close to the capital.” 

The Tower is priced at £225,000. Potential buyers should contact The Granary sales and marketing suite on 0131 453 1003
