Two House-Hunter Events In East Scotland This Weekend

Taylor Wimpey is hosting house-hunter events this weekend in Haddington and South Queensferry...

Taylor Wimpey is inviting house-hunters in the East of Scotland to visit two of its developments this weekend to see first-hand the range of homes it is bringing to the area.

In Haddington, there’s a chance to go ‘through the keyhole’ at Letham Meadows, situated off Pencaitland Road, where an Open House event will take place on Sunday 19 February from 11.00am until 4.00pm. There’s no need to make an appointment – house-hunters can simply pop along to the development.

As part of this event, buyers can step inside the impressive ‘Hume’ four-bedroom house (plot 180), as well as the popular ‘Fairbairn’ four-bedroom detached home (plot 164), which are both now complete and released for sale. Each comes complete with flooring throughout and integrated kitchen appliances. Potential purchasers have a choice of helpful offers currently available on these new homes. With a choice of a 5% deposit contribution, or a monthly mortgage contribution buyers can choose whichever offer will make a fresh start in a new home easier for them.

Buyers can also pop in to see the ‘Hume’ show home at Letham Meadows, which will also be open to view as part of this event.

Kirsty McGill, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland comments: “We’ve found this type of event is helpful for buyers who can’t visualise what a property will look like from a floor plan, or they can’t interpret what their new home may look like from a visit to our show homes. Of course, our show home is also on hand to inspire buyers and showcase the lifestyle they could be enjoying at Letham Meadows.

“For buyers considering a new home and becoming part of this growing community in Haddington, this event will give them a great opportunity to see inside a range of new homes to get a sense of where they feel most at home.”

Letham Meadows offers 272 new two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes of which 69 will be affordable, and there will be open space within the development to provide an equipped play area and a 7-a-side pitch. Prices currently start from £239,995 for the ‘Andrew’ two bedroom semi-detached home. Find out more from Taylor Wimpey.

On Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 February, the housebuilder is also opening the doors to some of the homes that are available for sale now at its Hawthorn Gardens development in South Queensferry as part of Edinburgh Council’s Golden Share Scheme.

This Open House event will take place from 11.00am to 4.30pm each day and buyers will get the chance to wear a hard hat to step inside some of the new Golden Share homes that are almost complete and are released for sale now including the ‘Bryce’ three-bedroom mid-terrace and semi-detached homes (plots 75, 78, 84), the ‘Boswell’ three-bedroom end-terrace (plot 81), the ‘Dunlop’ four-bedroom semi-detached home (plot 98). Prices start from £230,000.

Taylor Wimpey’s experienced sales executives will also be available to provide more information about Edinburgh Council’s Golden Share scheme including details of how to qualify, and the process of buying a new home.

Kirsty McGill commented: “The Golden Share scheme allows buyers to purchase a new home at less than the Open Market Value (OMV) – they will own 100% of the home but pay 80%! For buyers considering a new home in South Queensferry, this event will give them a great opportunity to see all of the extras that are included with these homes that are available to move into now. It’s also an ideal time to learn more about how to get on the move and whether Golden Share is an option for them.”

Situated at South Scotstoun, Hawthorn Gardens also offers an excellent choice of two-, three-, four-and five-bedroom homes from Taylor Wimpey’s Scottish and Caledonian house type ranges. Normal working hours here are 10.30am to 5.30pm, Thursday to Monday. Find out more from Taylor Wimpey.
