Chapelton: Perth Housebuilders Unveil First Showhome at Aberdeenshire Development

The first and eagerly-anticipated Stephen showhome will be unveiled within Scotland’s largest planned new town this weekend.


The Perth-based housebuilders will open the doors of the ‘Melfort’ property at Chapelton, five miles south of Aberdeen, on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 January 2015 with the showhome remaining open for viewings from Thursday to Monday thereafter (11am-5pm). 

The interior of the four bedroom detached home on Greenlaw Road has been designed by Stirling-based Envision.

Having already sold 21 properties and with the first buyers moving into their new home at the end of February, a new release of seven homes are also available for sale at this time. A combination of three house styles, the ‘Inver’, a three bedroom semi-detached villa, is available priced at £295,000, while the four bedroom detached ‘Grosebay’ is available at £420,000 and the ‘Carloway’, a four bedroom detached villa, is available at £430,000


Several additional house styles will also be released for advance reservation this weekend, including several of the ‘Melfort’ showhome style and the two bedroom detached ‘Carron’.

Tom Buchanan, Marketing Manager, Stephen commented, “We are delighted to be unveiling our first showhome within Chapelton and are similarly thrilled at the look and feel of this property.  Viewers will, I am sure, be impressed not only by the interior but by the entire specification, outstanding finish and attention to detail for which we are known. It’s fantastic to see the site come alive and take shape and we are really looking forward to welcoming visitors this weekend, and thereafter.”

The first phase of the development will see 256 properties being constructed, 82 of which will be built by Stephen. Eventually, the new town will provide 8,000 homes.
