Exciting new luxury housing offering comes to the Capital

Posted: 15th August 2023

A highly-anticipated, age-exclusive development has just launched in West Edinburgh. Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s highly sought after leafy suburb of Barnton, The Avenue by award-winning developer, Cruden Homes, is bringing 48 luxury properties to market.

Designed for modern-day downsizers, the desirable homes overlook the prestigious Royal Burgess Golfing Society and are surrounded by extensive green space and picturesque views, providing vibrant yet relaxed community living. The Avenue offers contemporary one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, and four exquisite three-bedroom semi-detached villas.

The development has already received the prestigious NextGeneration Project Gold Award, in recognition of the homes being packed with state-of-the-art sustainable and green-energy features.

Already showing exceptional demand, this stunning suburban development offers those aged 55 and over the benefit of stylish properties further enhanced by superb social spaces. Luxury hotel inspired amenities are available for communal use, including a club lounge and bar area, a visitor guest suite, concierge facilities, private parking, electric vehicle charging points and attractively landscaped gardens with shared BBQ area.

Just a stone’s throw away, the local area of Barnton provides great day-to-day amenities, with convenience stores, a post office and a pharmacy all within walking distance. The Avenue is also well-connected to Scotland’s vibrant Capital, with the Edinburgh City Bypass, M8 and M9 motorways, Queensferry Crossing and Edinburgh International Airport all situated nearby.

Catering to all lifestyles and interests, eager golfers can make the most of the development’s nearby golf courses – Royal Burgess, Bruntsfield Links and Ravelston Golf Clubs. Those with a love for the outdoors can also embrace the area’s breathtaking surroundings at Cramond Beach and the River Almond. Cammo Estate and Corstorphine Hill nature reserve lie within close proximity of the homes, providing fantastic opportunities for walking and wildlife-watching.

The first phase of homes are due for completion in early 2024 with prices starting at £380,000.

Hazel Davies, Sales and Marketing Director at Cruden Homes, said: “After much pent up demand, it’s exciting to announce the launch of the first phase of our new luxury development in Barnton.

“Today’s downsizers are looking for communities which offer more than just a place to live. They value the added benefits of exceptional on-site facilities and social spaces and want to live in a quality and highly energy-efficient home.

“The Avenue offers all of this and so much more, including relaxed suburban living with everything you could want or need within easy reach of the Capital. Unsurprisingly, we’ve seen unprecedented demand for these homes months ahead of this launch, so I urge potential buyers to act quickly to avoid missing out on something very unique.”
