Choice of Homes Released In Newcraighall

Some of the new release are available under a special tenure which allows the home to be purchased at just 80% of market price...

Avant Homes has announced a collection of brand new homes at its Balfour Park development in Newcraighall, Edinburgh.

The housebuilder has released a number of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes at the 223-unit development, with prices ranging from £172,000 for a two-bedroom home to £434,995 for a four-bedroom detached property.

Among the new homes is the popular two-bedroom ‘The Cranford’ house type , which is available to buyers as part of City of Edinburgh Council’s affordable housing tenure, Golden Share. The scheme will allow eligible purchasers to buy The Cranford at Balfour Park for 80% of the market value, but still benefit from owning 100% of their home.

The Golden Share scheme requires buyers to have a local connection to where they’re looking to purchase, a requirement for a property of the size they have an interest in and evidence they’re not able to solely purchase a home without the scheme. Following the purchase of a Golden Share home, owners will be able to sell their homes in the future for 80% of the current market value.

‘The Cranford’ homes are located within the heart of the development overlooking the village green. Prices range from £172,000 to £176,000 for the terraced homes, which come complete with a design-led specification, open-plan living space, utility room and two double bedrooms.

Avant Homes Scotland sales and marketing director, Theresa Barbour, said: “Our Balfour Park development has proven very popular with buyers looking to live within easy reach of Edinburgh. We’re pleased to be able to give keen purchasers even more homes to choose from at the development and to offer a selection of properties as part of City of Edinburgh Council’s Golden Share scheme.

“With their fantastic location within the development and Avant Homes’ superior specification included, we’re sure they will get snapped up quickly.”

In addition, a further three house types have been made available to purchase at Balfour Park. These are ‘The Hamilton’, ‘The Asbury’ and ‘The Rosebury’. Each home features flexible open-plan living space, exclusive kitchen designs with integrated appliances, bi-fold doors, and master bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, all included as part of the purchase price.

Situated just five miles east of Edinburgh in Newcraighall, Balfour Park is set in a sought-after location on the doorstep of some of Edinburgh’s most beautiful attractions, countryside and coast lines while also a short distance from the A1 motorway, making it an ideal location for homebuyers to connect to major towns and cities in Scotland and beyond.
