New Builds: Bellway Homes launches two showhomes at historic Fife town

Named after local philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, Bellway Homes’ Carnegie View, off East Baldridge Drive on the northern edge of the Fife town, will feature a collection of three, four and five-bedroomed homes when complete.

The developer has launched two showhomes there – the three-bedroom Erinvale and the four-bedroom Victoria.

The Erinvale has a bohemian-inspired interior and has been designed with family living in mind. The property’s entrance opens up to a spacious hallway that leads to a large formal lounge with 193 square metres of space, and an open-plan kitchen and dining area.

From the dining space, French doors open directly to a landscaped garden, while a cloakroom and under-stair storage can be found at the end of the hall.

From the light and airy first-floor landing is the 156sqm master bedroom with ensuite and Juliet balcony, second double bedroom, and a single third bedroom which can be easily adapted to an office or study, as well as a family bathroom.

The Victoria has been designed using soft, calming shades with a neutral palette throughout. It benefits from an integrated double garage as well as a formal lounge with 184sqm of space to the front of the ground floor, and an open-plan kitchen-dining area to the rear.

Upstairs are three double bedrooms plus a large main bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and ensuite shower room.

Lynn Pringle, sales director at Bellway Homes (Scotland East), says the development is proving highly desirable.

The Victoria has space for home working

She adds: “Sales continue to be extremely buoyant and over the festive period, Carnegie View was one of our busiest sites for inquiries.

“The market continues to be busy and traditionally, at this time of year, people are keen to make plans and try and secure their ideal plot on the development.

“Carnegie View is set within an already established residential area which has predominantly attracted local buyers. However, people continue to recognise the value for money in commuter towns such as Dunfermline, and the development is also popular among professionals who work in Edinburgh.”

Pringle continues: “A historic town, Dunfermline has an active community and the development is within the catchment area of Queen Anne High School, which is very appealing to families.”

Dunfermline has its own train station, and by car it is 40 minutes to either the Capital or Perth, 45 minutes to Stirling and about an hour to St Andrews.

House styles currently on offer at Carnegie View include the three-bedroom Lytham from £245,995, the Victoria from £290,995 and the four-bedroom Avondale from £308,995. All properties have been designed to suit home working, with open-plan spaces and landscaped gardens.

The sales office and showhomes at Carnegie View are open Monday and Friday, 10am-5pm. To arrange a viewing, call 01383 441 970.
