Two show homes have opened in a new development on the historic site of Blindwells, near Tranent, East Lothian.
Bellway Homes’ Prince’s Gate is near the ancient battlefield where Bonnie Prince Charlie defeated the government army at the Battle of Prestonpans in 1745.
The development is part of a vibrant new community which, when complete, will include around 1,600 homes, a health centre, school and retail outlets.
Starting at £360,995, the Queenwood show home is a stunning detached villa designed for modern family living.
The front exterior has a manicured lawn and patio driveway leading to a separate garage.
On the ground floor, the light and airy hallway has a formal lounge on one side and a dining room on the other.
At the back is an open plan kitchen with stylish built-in cabinets and a breakfast area measuring over 201 square feet.
Elegant French doors open directly to the property’s rear garden.
A utility room and cloakroom are adjacent to the breakfast area. Upstairs is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and fitted wardrobes.
The other three bedrooms are all doubles and can easily be adapted to serve as an office or study.
The four Burgess style detached bedrooms are equally impressive.
On the ground floor there is an integrated double garage and a
formal lounge forward.
The rear open plan kitchen, dining and family area is almost 300 square feet.
Coupled with French doors to the garden, it provides an ideal place to relax or entertain.
On the first floor, the master bedroom offers plenty of storage space and, like the second bedroom, is equipped with an ensuite bathroom.
Bedrooms three and four are very spacious and the family bathroom has a shower and bath.
The prices will be published shortly.
When complete, Prince’s Gate will feature 144 three, four and five bedroom homes.
Additions include granite or silestone kitchen countertops, built-in appliances, carpet, vinyl or ceramic flooring, and full- or half-height tile in bathrooms.
Families are well catered for with three elementary schools nearby and Ross High School in Tranent.
The development is also attractive for commuters as it is less than two miles south-east of Prestonpans and Edinburgh city center is around 25 minutes away by car.
The M8 and M90 are easily accessible via the A1, which is linked by the Edinburgh City Bypass.
Tranent has a good range of amenities with two supermarkets and a choice of restaurants, cafes and traditional bars.
Lynne Pringle, Sales Director, Bellway Homes (Scotland East), says: “Blindwells has become a key location for commuters looking for a convenient location in the city and lots have been awarded.
“The inspiring showhomes showcase the space on offer, particularly the Queenwood home office that many of our buyers are still looking for.”
The Queenwood and Burgess showhomes are open for viewing Thursday through Monday by appointment only. Call the Bellway sales team on 01620 621 735 to arrange a suitable time slot.
