Lisa Archibald, Dandara’s regional sales manager, says: “Barley Brae has become a highly sought-after community with an abundance of amenities on your doorstep and schools within a two-mile radius.

The showhome is open for viewings by appointment only. Prices start from £489,950.

Lisa Archibald says: “Ashgrove and Eskbank Gardens offer homebuyers a great range of choice in really superb locations where everything you need is close by. They really offer the best of both worlds – beautiful surroundings and the convenience of a short drive to the cosmopolitan centre of Edinburgh.”

Buyers can currently take advantage of Dandara’s new Home Exchange scheme which removes all the stress of selling your home with no selling fees to pay.

With recent changes to LBTT raising the level the tax is paid from £145,000 to £250,000 until March 2021, it’s an ideal time to take advantage of these incentives and buy the home of your dreams.

In addition to offering award-winning design and build quality, Dandara’s new properties are highly insulated and fitted with thermally and acoustically efficient double-glazed uPVC windows as standard.

All properties are highly energy efficient with photovoltaic panels offering renewable energy, and central heating and hot water provided by energy-efficient,

gas-fired boiler systems, which can make Dandara homes up to 50 per cent cheaper to run than a Victorian property.
