New builds: Look to West Craigs for Capital lifestyle

House hunters are invited to view two detached showhomes at a popular development by Taylor Wimpey in the Capital.

West Craigs, situated off Maybury Road to the west of Edinburgh, forms part of a growing community between Barnton and The Gyle, which consists of 250 high-quality two to five-bedroom homes from the home builder, all on the edge of rolling countryside and within easy access of the city centre.

Two four-bedroom showhomes are now open to view – the Geddes and the Maxwell.

The former design style is currently available at the site’s south-facing Plot 27, from £562,000.

Covering more than 1,340sq ft of floor space, the Geddes design is generously sized and benefits from an integrated garage.

A light-filled lounge sits to the rear, but at the heart of the family home is its open-plan kitchen and dining area, with elegant French doors opening directly to a landscaped rear garden.

Upstairs, all bedrooms are double in size. The principal includes an ensuite shower room, while bedrooms two and three share a Jack and Jill ensuite.

The Maxwell is slightly larger, with more than 1,470sq ft, but also features a flexible open-plan layout.
