Buying a new home’s a walk in the park with Bellway

Duchess Park

Only seven miles from Edinburgh and offering a selection of stylish, spacious properties with a choice of incentives – Bellway Homes’ striking Duchess Park development within the historic town of Dalkeith makes buying a new home easy.

Whether it’s time for prospective buyers to escape the city to the family home they have always dreamed of, or house hunters eager to upsize within Midlothian, Duchess Park currently has a beautiful collection of three-bedroom terraced and semi-detached properties and four-bedroom detached homes such as the current ‘House of the Month’ – the Oronsay (Plot 218).

Included in the sale of this impressive four-bedroom detached home with single garage is a fully upgraded kitchen complete with integrated appliances, fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom, upgraded tiles in the bathroom, en-suite and downstairs cloakroom, as well as landscaped gardens all for a highly competitive £236,995.

Bellway Homes also has a range of tailored incentives available at Duchess Park, including Part Exchange and the recently introduced Help to Buy (Scotland) initiative.

With Part Exchange, Bellway ensures an independent evaluation is carried out on a prospective buyer’s existing property, guaranteeing a fair offer. The award winning housebuilder also covers estate agent’s costs, including the Home Report and any associated marketing costs, providing buyers with substantial savings in the process.

Under Help to Buy (Scotland), homebuyers with a minimum 5 per cent deposit receive an interest free equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value of their new home from the Scottish Government, leaving only a 75 per cent mortgage to secure with a lender. The scheme is available at all Bellway’s developments in Scotland, with a maximum purchase price of up to £400,000.

Fraser Conn, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes, says: “Duchess Park is located within a vibrant town that has much to offer. As such, the development has gathered interest from both local buyers and those outwith the area in search of a substantial, affordable family home close to the Capital.”

A former market town, Dalkeith is a picturesque and much sought-after location due to its rich heritage, including a 12th century castle and 18th century Dalkeith House as well as its own country park.

The town LAO has a bustling high street with a good mix of well known and independent retailers and a regular Farmers’ Market.

Dalkeith Community Campus is close to Duchess Park and is home to Dalkeith High and St David’s secondary schools. It also provides a range of sports and leisure services.

Ideally placed for commuters, Duchess Park sits off the A68, which is a few miles from the A1, making Edinburgh city centre and airport realistic commutes. Newcraighall Station is just four miles from the development, with ‘park and ride’ facilities off Sheriffhall roundabout, and operates a regular service to Waverley Station.

Prices at Duchess Park are currently released from £179,995 to £264,995. For further information on the development, visit
