Developers recognise opportunities in affordable housing

BUILDING works have commenced on a new housing development set in the beautiful Perthshire countryside.

The Forgan Grove site was initially planned for homes worth in excess of half a million pounds.

Following the recession a new approach has been taken to reflect the demand for smaller, more affordable housing in the area.

Seven detached homes are on the market with property experts Bell Ingram, the mixture of four and five bedroom properties range from £325,000 to £395,000 in price and are due for completion in February 2019.

Carl Warden, Senior Associate at Bell Ingram, said: “This is a really exciting new development to be a part of and it shows the value of paying close attention to the market and going back to planning to provide smaller, more affordable housing.

“Planning consent was initially granted in 2008 but following the recession and changing market, the decision was taken to build more housing but at more affordable prices.

“It’s well known that there’s a demand for housing across the country, especially in Perth, which is regarded as one of the most desirable locations to live within Scotland.

“The homes at Forgan Grove have all been designed to the highest of standards and provide a perfect base for families with terrific transport connections to other major cities.”

Set in mature grounds near woodland at Strathallan School, the houses come with a raft of premium features such as underfloor heating and high spec kitchens as standard.

The properties boast either attached or detached garages while the patio areas in the private gardens offer the ideal location to unwind after a day at work.

The village of Forgandenny has a vibrant community atmosphere and is within easy commuting distance of both Perth and Edinburgh being located just four miles off the M90.

Perth was recently awarded city status and has an array of recreational activities on offer including Scone Palace, one of the country’s oldest stately homes, while there are a range of top-quality golf courses nearby.
