Taylor Wimpey opens more showhomes at Kippielaw

Date: Monday 28 November 2011

Taylor Wimpey East Scotland is opening two luxurious four bedroom detached showhomes at The Scholars in Kippielaw on 3 December, 2011– showcasing the style, quality and space that buyers can expect from a family home at this charming development in the heart of Midlothian. And for reservations by 18 December, buyers can take advantage of part-exchange, free carpets, free integrated kitchen appliances and stamp duty paid on selected plots.

Plus, Taylor Wimpey’s The Scholars development is the first to utilise the latest Aurasma technology, where prospective buyers using smart phones or iPads can see The Scholars brought to life via a short infommerical video showing views of the development and external images of the homes available.

Taylor Wimpey is the first housebuilder in Scotland to offer the Aurasma technology via its traditional property advertising, and when using it viewers can also simply click through to Taylor Wimpey’s website to make an appointment to view the new showhomes.

Enjoying a location that’s on the outskirts of Dalkeith with stunning views this new development is situated on the former school grounds of St David’s Primary School, and complements the recent Scholar’s Green development opened there earlier this year.

Kippielaw is located on the south-east boundary of Dalkeith, and a short walk will take you into its bustling centre. As the centre of Midlothian, Dalkeith has strong links with Edinburgh, but has its own place in history with a wealth of places of architectural and historic interest. The beauty of the Pentland Hills is within easy reach of the development and a good range of local amenities and shops, plus an excellent choice of local primary and secondary education make it a popular choice for families.

Set around its own extensive central village green and play area, there is plenty of space to enjoy every day life at The Scholars. There are eight styles of four bedroom detached homes to choose from - each one traditionally built to Taylor Wimpey's exceptionally high standards plus a choice of two bedroom apartments.

As well as impressive kerb appeal, the range of homes at The Scholars offer a contemporary fully-fitted kitchen, an impressive master bedroom with ensuite, and practical features such as well-proportioned bedrooms, a downstairs WC, a spacious hallway, as well as generous front and rear gardens as standard.

Plus, many of these magnificent homes also boast features like an ensuite in bedroom 2, or perhaps a study room, a family room or a utility room to maximise your living space. Some plots also have a spacious garden room that means you can enjoy the views of your garden from the comfort of your new home! The range of apartments will add to the overall style and choice available at The Scholars.

Karen Armstrong, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland adds: “The Scholars is an exciting new place to call home within a short commute of Edinburgh. And it’s a real opportunity for families to maximise their budget and perhaps secure a larger property than they might be able to afford within the city boundary.

“The launch of our showhomes allows prospective buyers to see for themselves the quality and high standards of workmanship of our homes. Plus the availability of part-exchange, free carpets, free integrated kitchen appliances and stamp duty paid on selected plots for reservations by 18 December, 2011 is a real Christmas bonus for buyers keen to be on the move early in the New Year.”

Four bedroom detached homes that are currently available range from £310,000 for the Maplewood and from £375,000 for the Sycamore.
