Perth Housebuilders Report Huge Appeal of Luxury Properties
Published on 10 April 2014
Perthshire housebuilders claim that the resounding success of a Scone development signals the dawn of brighter times in the local property market.
Four of Stephen’s seven properties planned for their Bonhard Road site in Scone have now been reserved.
Advance reservations have been taken on four of the 1.5 storey luxury villas, which will be built on just minutes from the family firm’s highly popular Balgarvie development.
Featuring a mix of Glen Cassleys, Glen Fruins and a Glen Devon complete with stunning sunroom, work is due to commence on site in the Autumn.
The construction will be led by Stephen’s award-winning Site Manager, Alan Robertson who, due to his achievements at the neighbouring Balgarvie development, was recently voted the best in Scotland in the Small Builder category, for the third year in a row. Mr Robertson was awarded one of only five Regional Awards in the NHBC Pride in the Job awards as well as a Seal of Excellence, one of only ten awarded in Scotland.
Tom Buchanan, Marketing Manager said, “We are absolutely delighted at the early interest in our Bonhard Road site, given that works on site are still a few months off. We are similarly heartened by the steady stream of visitors and sales across all of our local sites, including Balgarvie in Scone, Errol and Clathymore near Gleneagles. The property market really is looking brighter, improved further by the increasing uptake of the Help to Buy (Scotland) shared equity scheme, which is allowing people to buy properties of up to £400,000 with a mortgage of just 75%, combined with much more affordable deposit requirements.”
