A major homebuilder is tempting families out of the busy city and into semi-rural Midlothian with the launch of two new showhomes.

CALA Homes (East) will open the doors of its first phase showhomes at Belwood Oaks in Penicuik on Saturday 24 August 2019.

The four-bed Cleland and five-bed Garvie from CALA’s exclusive Light & Space Collection will be designed by interior designer Carol Yates, drawing inspiration from the development’s sought-after location at the foot of the scenic Pentland Hills.

The eagerly-anticipated properties will replace the development’s temporary sales centre, which CALA took the decision to launch in April this year due to early demand.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said: “Midlothian is such an idyllic part of the world and is the perfect setting for bringing up a family. It is no wonder that the region is becoming so popular.

“The homes at Belwood Oaks have been crafted with modern families in mind, acknowledging the need for practical space that can be adapted as they grow.

“The two new showhomes by Carol Yates will really encapsulate this ethos, drawing inspiration from Penicuik’s blissful surroundings while showcasing the high specification features and overall quality of build.”

Originally one of Midlothian’s historic paper mill towns, Penicuik can be found just nine miles from the centre of Edinburgh. Just a 30-minute journey by car, those travelling into the city can also take advantage of well-connected public transport.

Closer to home, families can discover a variety of cafes, shops and award-winning restaurants along the town’s high street.

While golf enthusiasts can pick up their clubs and hit the fairway at nearby Glencorse Golf Club, both the Pentland Hills and River Esk offer a range of walking routes for those looking for a leisurely stroll.

Philip added: “Being on the outskirts of Penicuik, Belwood Oaks has the best of Midlothian’s attractions within easy reach, including Dalkeith Country Park and Rosslyn Chapel.

“It really is the perfect blend of semi-rural living – you can enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding countryside while still having the delights of the capital a short journey away.

“With such a desirable setting, we expect the homes at Belwood Oaks to be in high demand. A visit to the showhomes is a must for those looking to discover their dream family home.”

Properties at Belwood Oaks start at £349,000 and include a range of four and five-bedroom family homes available within the first phase.
