Summer Move At Housebuilder’s Sites In North Of Scotland

Posted 28 April 2021 by Keith Osborne

Barratt Homes is offering an opportunity to purchase and move in over the summer at a number of its developments...

While holidays overseas remain a distant dream, the prospect of a staycation or even a barbecue with much-missed family and friends has been enough to lift many of our spirits. For many missing the chance for even a short time away, thoughts have turned to a permanent change of scenery by moving home.

Despite a very active property market across Scotland, availability remains for a summer move with Barratt Homes across the north of the country – so digging out those dusty suitcases could well be on the cards after all.

With its rugged coastline and sandy beaches on one side, and idyllic farmland and rolling countryside on the other, there’s a lot more to Aberdeen than its city amenities and employment. Lifestyle has been a growing priority among buyers for some time, which is something the Granite City offers in abundance.

Of course, work is important, and with its wealth of industries and job opportunities, Aberdeen is the place to go for career development. But, during evenings and weekends, the world is your oyster – from active outdoor pursuits and picnics in the country to wining and dining and theatre and film (when restrictions finally lift).

Given the city’s broad appeal, Barratt Homes is marketing homes for sale at a wide range of Aberdeen developments.

Westburn Gardens for example, with its choice of one- and two-bedroom apartments in the city’s West End, is an excellent choice for those looking forward to a more cosmopolitan lifestyle. And with summer availability remaining, you could be enjoying alfresco dining at one of the many fantastic foodie establishments on the development’s doorstep very soon.

Riverside QuarterRiverside Quarter

If you dream of a quieter existence without having to forgo the conveniences of urban living, Riverside Quarter, Whiteland Coast or Hopecroft could be your perfect move. With a choice of three-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments, Riverside Quarter is well suited to first-time buyers or those looking for a step up to their first house with a garden in time for the summer. Hopecroft’s three- and four-bedroom offering means that larger homes will be ready for families hoping to enjoy the paddling pool season with new surroundings.

Paddling doesn’t just have to be limited to pools at Whiteland Coast as it’s close to some of the best local beaches. With limited homes ready for summer 2021, the development, with its two-, three- and four-bedroom properties, is proving to be incredibly popular for those searching for a dream home in a spectacular coastal location.

And over to the western suburbs of Aberdeen towards Westhill and Kingswells, you’ll find Countesswells – one of Aberdeen’s newest communities. Like Riverside Quarter, Whiteland Coast and Hopecroft, it offers easy access to the city and shire, connecting residents with an excellent choice of leisure pursuits and attractions for all ages and interests.

Culloden WestCulloden West

Beyond Aberdeen, Barratt Homes developments can be found in other sought-after locations including Perth, the gateway to the Highlands, and the region’s capital of Inverness.

Located close to the A85 and A9 by Perth, Huntingtower has been a massive success story for the housebuilder, with Phase 2 selling fast. Limited availability remains for those looking for a pre-summer move-in date and the best of beautiful Perthshire on their doorstep.

Likewise, house-hunters looking for a larger four-bedroom home in Inverness need look no further than Culloden West which has plots ready for the coming months. Culloden West lies just a short journey from the historic battlefield of the same name, while also benefiting from close access to Inverness Airport (for when international travel resumes) and links to beautiful coastal walks at Ardersier, Nairn and further into Morayshire.
