A BUNGALOW and villa development has launched its first show home aimed specifically towards people over the age of 55.

Juniper Residential revealed that Muirwood Gardens in Kinross has had a 40% increase in enquiries from Edinburgh buyers in past weeks.

Interest in the development has been strong since sales were launched earlier this year, with 40% of the development sold off-plan and dozens more who have registered interest.

Hazel Davies, Sales & Marketing Director for Juniper said: “We’ve been delighted with the strong response to Muirwood Gardens since we launched earlier this year and have seen superb levels of interest from across Scotland and from further afield.

“Prospective buyers have been really taken with the concept of living in their own home within a likeminded community, with all the comforts and security you would expect from a luxury development.”
