In line with New Homes Week, a major developer is spotlighting its homes in popular Gullane as the perfect persuader for househunters swithering over buying new.

With demand for new homes in Scotland increasing 33%[1] as we emerge from lockdown, CALA Homes (East) believes its Marine Rise development, with its mix of large family homes along with expertly designed apartments, shows how diverse new properties can be, with all of the key added benefits of a new home.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (East), said: “Lockdown has definitely impacted what people are looking for in a home, whether it’s more space, a garden, or a home study.

“Our homes at Marine Rise tick all of those boxes and many more – particularly the strength of its seaside location, within walking distance of the award-winning beach, nature trails, and local amenities.

“All of the homes are brand new, sparkle cleaned and built to CALA’s high specification, with central heating, quality insulation and fitted bathrooms and kitchens as standard – meaning no renovation or upgrade costs are needed.

“In addition finding a new build home you can move into quickly isn’t always something buyers expect, but with a small selection of Ready for You homes available at Marine Rise you can do just that in as little as four weeks.”

Househunters can also enjoy even further peace of mind when buying new with CALA, thanks to its second to none customer service, and its range of incentives, which includes up to 100% part exchange and reduced reservation fees.

Philip added: “We strive to give buyers as much certainty as possible, which is why we offer so many incentives and ways we can help.

“Our part exchange service is used by almost one third of our purchasers across the UK, and means we provide you with the comfort that the sale of your previous home has been taken care of.”

One popular home at Marine Rise is The McNeil, a five-bedroom light filled home priced at £659,000, and currently available with a reduced reservation fee of £99.

The generous 2,245 sq. ft. property offers all the contemporary space needed for families, with flooring and turf already included.

The kitchen connects to an impressive double height family area which features luxury bi-folding doors leading to the home’s rear garden, while the double-floored lounge flows into a formal dining room at the rear of the home.

The home also has a quiet, private downstairs study suitable for homeworking, with five spacious bedrooms found on the first floor – including a large main bedroom and four-piece en-suite.

Gullane is known for its award-winning beaches and world-famous golf courses, making it an ideal location for anyone seeking a slower pace of life by the seaside – within commuting distance of the capital.

Customers can arrange to view and visit the showhomes at Marine Rise and Henderson House in person, or remotely through CALA’s new Virtual Guided Tours service. This interactive experience allows potential buyers to do a virtual walk-round of a showhome, alongside one of CALA’s experienced Sales Consultants via inbuilt video conference facilities.

CALA has a number of incentives available for customers looking to secure their dream home, including the Scottish Government’s First Home Fund or CALA’s Guaranteed Buyer and Part Exchange services – all of which help to give buyers confidence as the market continues to reopen.

Homes at Marine Rise range from £549,000 – £765,000. The development features a range of detached properties as well as carefully designed apartments at Henderson House, priced from £299,000 – £495,000.

All CALA homes include a 10 year NHBC warranty and a 2 year after sales service, meaning buyers will have continued confidence beyond their initial move in date.
