New builds: Fair show for Shawfair showhome double act

Two luxurious showhomes have been launched at a Midlothian site which is said to be the “biggest urban expansion near Edinburgh in modern times”.

Nestled on the edge of The Wisp and just north of Danderhall, Shawfair lies six miles from the Capital’s centre. Stewart Milne is building 143 new dwellings at the development, including 115 premium properties and 28 affordable homes.

The housebuilder will also use the site to showcase its latest Villages range – designed to combine elegance, flexibility and functionality.

The Mellor showhome is a prime example. The house type is an impressive six-bedroom detached unit set over three storeys, and is priced from £420,000 for more than 1,700sq ft of floor space.

There is a formal lounge on the ground floor, as well as an integrated garage and storage.

The rear of the property benefits from a light and airy open-plan kitchen and dining space, with French doors opening out to a patio.

The first floor contains four bedrooms, including an ensuite guest bedroom, and a family bathroom. The grand master bedroom boasts a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite bath and shower room, as well as a seating or study area, while the smaller sixth bedroom could become an office.

The Stratford, a five-bedroom detached family home covering more than 2,035sq ft, is priced from £565,000.

This design’s downstairs features a double garage, formal lounge and a large, open-plan kitchen-dining and family living space.

The kitchen boasts a breakfast bar for quick and easy meals, while the dining space with French doors is large enough to accommodate a full-sized dining table.

The first-floor L-shaped landing has a dedicated library/study space, as well as ample storage. The guest bedroom has an ensuite shower, and the main has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bath and shower.

Each home comes with a choice of units and worktops, with AEG integrated appliances in the kitchens and a variety of Porcelanosa tiles in the bathrooms.
