Final New Homes For Sale At Midlothian Site

Posted 8 December 2023 by Keith Osborne

Two four-bedroom, three-storey houses are all that remain for sale at Dandara's successful Ashgrove in Straiton...

Buyers will have to move quickly if they are to secure a home at Dandara’s Ashgrove in Straiton, Midlothian, as only two new homes remain for sale there.

The leafy development of 92 homes has been a big hit with buyers thanks to its location six miles from Edinburgh city centre, and proximity to shops and leisure facilities.

Now only two townhouses – an ‘Islay’ type and an ‘Orkney’ – are available to reserve and come with a choice of a £10,000 tailored incentive package or the option of using Dandara’s Moving Made Easy scheme. Through Moving Made Easy, Dandara can help arrange to sell buyers’ existing properties and pay estate agents fees as well. Unlike many similar schemes with other housebuilders, buyers don’t have to be moving to a larger property, Dandara will also assist downsizers and side-steppers too.- Terms and conditions apply.

Priced at £294,995, the ‘Islay’ has a large open-plan kitchen/lounge/dining room with French doors to the garden. A handy cloakroom and storage complete the ground floor. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and a study area – perfect for those working from home. On the top floor there is a large main bedroom with combed ceiling and its own en suite shower room.

The ‘Orkney’ is an attractive four-bedroom home featuring an integral garage and large garden room on the ground floor away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the property. There’s also a handy cloakroom and a large integral garage with utility room accessed directly from the hallway. There is a study/fourth bedroom on the first floor, and a large lounge with Juliet balcony and an open-plan kitchen/dining room. On the second floor is the main bedroom with its walk-in wardrobe and en suite, along with two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. It is priced at £338,995.

Tony Williamson, sales director for Dandara East Scotland, said: “We’re really sad to be getting ready to say goodbye to Ashgrove, it has been a lovely place to work and it’s fantastic to see such an amazing community flourishing here. With plans for a new 20-minute neighbourhood to be built nearby with new shops, employment opportunities and green spaces, now is a great opportunity for buyers to be part of an exciting, developing area but within a mature and well-established residential development.”

All properties at Ashgrove have integrated appliances in the kitchen, contemporary white bathroom suites with a choice of wall tiles and turfed and landscaped front gardens. They have high levels of insulation and high-quality double glazing, as well as photovoltaic panels on the roof to keep heating costs to a minimum.

Plenty of local amenities are close at hand for residents, with two primary schools within walking distance, one of which, Paradykes Primary, is part of a recently opened community facility which includes wrap-around care, a library, medical centre, early years’ provision, and leisure facilities.

There are three supermarkets within easy reach, as well as a wide range of shops at the Straiton Retail Park and a selection of popular places to eat. A large IKEA store is less than a mile away.

For recreation there are fun family walks at the nearby Straiton Pond nature reserve, skiing and snowboarding at the Midlothian Snowsports Centre and golf at the Kings Acre Golf Club.

Ashgrove is less than half-a-mile from the new Park and Ride bus service into Edinburgh and has easy access to the city bypass. Edinburgh Airport is just over 10 miles away.

The sales office and ‘Tiree’ show home at Ashgrove are open Monday, Thursday and Friday, from 10.00am to 5.00pm, and Saturday/Sunday 11.00am to 5.00pm. Find out more about Ashgrove.
