Eco-Home Development Re-Energises The Property Market

A range of eco-friendly properties is continuing to energise the market, after eight of the fourteen homes at the Milnathort development sold out in just 11 months.

Located just a couple of miles from the attractive Scottish town of Kinross and boasting panoramic views of the Loch Leven basin, Mains of Mawcarse is a small hamlet of individually designed homes, all with cutting-edge energy saving technology.

The three and four bedroom properties boast triple glazed windows that ‘lock in’ heat and promote solar gain and highly efficient air source heat pumps – to dramatically reduce fuel bills for the buyer.

Mains of Mawcarse also blends its contemporary features with traditional characteristics, offering responsibly-sourced oak floors, pitched roofs, dormer windows, private gardens and a wood burning stove – the ideal setting for cosy nights in.

What’s more, each property can be personalised to cater to specific needs, with buyers having the option to decide on a choice of finishes and the placement of interior walls.

Situated within easy commuting distance of Perth and Edinburgh, phase two of the development is now on the market with Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram, with properties priced from £375,000 to £559,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram in Perthshire, said: “This development offers great potential for families looking for homes that are full of character and are abundant in traditional country charm.

“The extensive use of renewable energy measures also ensures that heating bills will be kept to a minimum, as well as allowing ‘green-minded’ individuals to support their environment protection agendas.

“Mains of Mawcarse also provides the best of both worlds in terms of accessibility – boasting a peaceful setting which guarantees privacy, while its proximity to the thriving town of Kinross gives the perfect mix of both urban and rural facilities.

“After the outstanding success of phase one, we’re very excited to begin bringing phase two on to the market and we expect these will be very popular with a wide range of buyers.”

History and outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed as the local area is rich in opportunity for both. Kinross is on the doorstep of Loch Leven, Scotland’s largest lowland loch which is home to a huge variety of wildlife and plant species.

The surrounding area also provides a variety of al fresco pursuits, including walking, cycling, angling, horse riding, gliding and golfing – with more than 100 golf courses within striking distance, including the world famous Old Course in St Andrews.

The area also has strong historical connections as it was in Loch Leven Castle that Mary, Queen of Scots, was incarcerated before making her escape to England. Ferries run regularly to the island on which it stands.

Viewings of the three and four bedroom properties at Mains of Mawcarse are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Perth office on 01738 621 121.

Established 117 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices including: farm, estate and forestry managers; chartered surveyors, architects, planners, and building surveyors; and tourism, GIS mapping, and renewable energy specialists.
