Look north for your first home

Nes­tled in the heart of Aberdeen­shire, In­verurie has a thriv­ing High Street

COM­PARED with sev­eral decades ago, the av­er­age age of the first time buyer is on the in­crease, with many house hunters tak­ing their first steps onto the prop­erty lad­der well into their thir­ties. It is no sur­prise, there­fore, that many house­builders are also ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a surge in de­mand for homes in the sub­urbs and coun­try­side.

Tak­ing a breather from the city makes good sense for many first timers at this stage in their lives.

Not only can you get more for your money, you can plan for the fu­ture with a larger home in a set­tled com­mu­nity, per­haps also en­abling you to live closer to fam­ily and friends.

What’s more, es­pe­cially now as in­ter­est rates re­main low and com­pet­i­tive, buy­ing can of­ten prove cheaper than city rent­ing, once sav­ing for that all im­por­tant de­posit is out of the way.

Two Bar­ratt Homes developments where many buy­ers have se­cured their first home away from the city are Osprey Heights in In­verurie and Ness Castle, by In­ver­ness.

Nes­tled in the heart of Aberdeen­shire, the town of In­verurie has long been an at­trac­tive place to live for peo­ple of all

A LUX­URY penthouse worth close to £2 mil­lion has hit the Ed­in­burgh mar­ket – at one of the most ex­clu­sive developments ever built in the city.

A range of unique prop­er­ties have now landed on the mar­ket at The Cres­cent by CALA Homes (East), with one ex­cep­tional penthouse tak­ing the prize for ul­ti­mate city liv­ing.

The three-bed­room apart­ment is sit­u­ated at the end-point of the sweep­ing development, boast­ing 180-de­gree glass frontage and ex­pan­sive triple as­pect, 2,680 square-foot pri­vate ter­race.

The prop­erty is on the mar­ket with CALA Homes (East) for £1,925,000 – and in­ter­ested buy­ers are en­cour­aged to book a pri­vate ap­point­ment at the off-site sales of­fice based within a suite at The Bal­moral Ho­tel.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Di­rec­tor for CALA Homes (East) said: “The Cres­cent is un­like any other development in Scot­land – and this penthouse in par­tic­u­lar will of­fer the lucky buy­ers the ab­so­lute height of lux­ury city liv­ing.
