Enjoy life around the village green at Duchess Park

Duchess Park

Bellway Homes’ latest release of striking four-bedroom properties at Duchess Park in Dalkeith near Edinburgh are being built around a traditional village green, providing a attractive central feature within this arresting development.

Given the ease of access from one of Midlothian’s most charming historic towns, Duchess Park continues to be in demand with family buyers wanting a beautiful new home within easy reach of the capital.

Each four-bedroom home presents a highly stylised, spacious property enhanced by its position around the landscaped village green which Bellway has expertly crafted at the heart of the development.

Fraser Conn, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes, says: “Duchess Park also provides a more affordable option for buyers who want to live within easy reach of the capital. Only half an hour from the city centre and, at £70,000-£100,000 less expensive than houses inside the city bypass, it offers considerably better value for money.”

Bellway Homes also has a menu of tailored incentives available at Duchess Park, including Part Exchange, 5% Deposit Paid, Express Mover, MI New Home and the most recent – Help to Buy (Scotland).

Under Help to Buy (Scotland), homebuyers with a minimum five 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.

In addition to the range of incentives available, the award-winning housebuilder also has a ‘House of the Month’ on offer in the form of 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 and all for a highly competitive £231,995.

Dalkeith remains one of Midlothian’s most sought-after locations due to its commutability to the Capital, combined with its rich historic past and a vibrant town with a wealth of local services and amenities.

From its bustling high street with a good mix of well known and independent retailers, a regular Farmers’ Market, a 12th century castle, 18th century Dalkeith House and its own country park, there’s plenty to do all year round.

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.

Duchess Park is situated off the A68 and also only a few miles from the A1, making it a reasonable journey to both the city centre and Edinburgh International Airport. 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 £180,995 for a three-bedroom terraced Eden style property, to £265,995 for a four-bedroom detached Balloch. For further information on the development, visit
