The Orchard

The Orchard near Penicuik in Midlothian, by award winning house builder Cruden Homes, has certainly blossomed this summer as only four properties remain which suggests sell-out success in a matter of weeks.

Situated within the sought-after hamlet of Mauricewood, The Orchard offers a unique collection of 12 beautifully crafted four and five-bedroom detached villas in four different styles.

Each home offers a thoughtfully executed interior, including open-plan and private family space, formal dining room, study/library area, as well as a master en-suite with dressing room. And of course Cruden Homes’ carefully considered specification and finish perfectly blends traditional features with stylish contemporary fittings.

Adding to its appeal, the company is currently running an exclusive promotion on the Oak (Plot 9). This beautifully presented four-bedroom property occupies an exceptionally generous plot and benefits from a large south facing back garden. Internally, the ground floor has been redesigned to provide a bespoke German kitchen with integrated Siemens appliances, offering a sleek and stylish yet functional hub to this enviable home,

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing manager at Cruden Homes (East), says: “The Orchard has been extremely well received because it offers something quite different. The homes were designed to harmonise with the surrounding picturesque countryside and are positioned around an intimate courtyard, giving the development an established feel.

“Given its success, we wanted to go out with a bit of a flourish which is why we took stock of customer feedback on the house styles and re-designed the Oak to feature a large open plan kitchen/breakfast room that would serve equally well as an informal family room.

“It features an impressive German kitchen courtesy of Kitchens International and what’s more, we’ve just reduced the price from £390,000 to a very tempting £375,000. We anticipate a positive response to this fabulous offer, so I would encourage prospective buyers to contact us sooner than later.”

With uninterrupted views to the Pentland Hills over rolling fields and mature woodland, Mauricewood strikes the perfect balance for those in search of a peaceful haven that’s within each reach of the Capital.

The neighbouring town of Penicuik offers a range of independent high street shops and supermarkets, as well as everyday amenities and a choice of primary and secondary schooling.

For lovers of the outdoors, The Pentland Hills Regional Park is on the doorstep of The Orchard, offering a great choice of scenic walks, cycling trails, places to fish and parks to enjoy. The Midlothian Snowsports Centre is also situated close by at Hillend, as too are several golf courses.

Prices for the final properties at The Orchard are released from £369,000. For further information on the Oak (Plot 9) or Cruden Homes’ popular part exchange or shared equity schemes, which are also available at the development, visit
