New release launched at coastal village development in response to ‘wave’ of demand

Posted: 1st October 2020

Cruden Homes is bringing forward a new release of homes at their award-winning Meadowside development to keep up with demand.  The picture-perfect coastal village of Aberlady offers the ideal location for the perfect work/life balance – set in a tranquil location yet just 18 miles from Edinburgh, and with easy access via the A1 or by train from nearby North Berwick or Longniddry stations.

The new development has really captured the imagination of home buyers, attracted not only by the superb family homes available, but also by the lifestyle on offer with Aberlady’s wealth of outdoor activities, 40 miles of coastline, and cafes, bars and restaurants on the doorstep.

The new release sees three house styles for sale, all designed exclusively for their picturesque location:

The 4 bedroom, semi-detached Benson – features a spacious living room and a well-equipped open plan kitchen and dining area with direct access to the rear garden. Upstairs there is the spacious master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a well-proportioned family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower.

The 4 bedroom, detached Durrell – together with a comfortable living room, there is a super open plan kitchen and dining area ideal for family mealtimes or entertaining and also offers direct access to the garden. There is also ample storage downstairs and a separate practical utility. Upstairs you will find four good-sized bedrooms, two of which feature en-suite shower rooms, and a great family bathroom.

The 4 bedroom detached Catesby – offers a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area with doors leading out to the rear garden, and a handy utility off to the side that offers access to the garden and a downstairs wc. A spacious living room to the front of the property is perfect for entertaining and a study completes the ground floor.  Located upstairs, a comfortable master bedroom offers a luxurious en-suite with bath and shower together with three further good-sized bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom.

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing director of Cruden Homes, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with interest for our Meadowside development so we’ve accelerated the release of three house styles that are in high demand from buyers – combining generous and flexible living spaces and are perfect for family living, entertaining and home working.  Meadowside is perfectly positioned to offer the very best of coastal village life, yet in easy reach of the capital so we expect these homes to be snapped up at this very special development.”

The first homes in the new phase will be ready to move in to from early Summer 21, and Cruden Homes is offering buyers the option to take advantage of their popular Assisted Move and Guaranteed Buyer initiatives.

With prices starting at £365,000 for the Benson, £439,000 for the Durrell and £445,000 for the Catesby, all three property styles offer exceptional value and an interior specification reflecting the top-end appeal of the development.

Prospective buyers can visit the four-bedroom detached Catesby showhome at the Meadowside development where the show home is open by appointment from Thursday to Monday, 11.00am to 5.00pm.
