Fancy a brand-new hi-spec mansion with four times the living space of the average home in Scotland, situated in a leafy suburb of the Scottish capital?

Eight new millionaire mansions are being built at the Avenue, part of the new Ravelrig Heights development in Edinburgh's Balerno area

Well eight such luxury homes have just come on the market in Edinburgh, boasting five bedrooms, oodles of living space and a large detached garage.

The properties are some of the roomiest ever built by housing firm Cala Homes – and come with a similarly large six-figure price tag.

The number of streets in Edinburgh where the average home costs at least £1 million has increased more than 10-fold over the past five years, jumping from two in 2015 to 22 in 2020.

Houses in the Avenue at Ravelrig Heights range from £1,095,000 to £1,255,000, and come with top-end fixtures and fittings as standard, including underfloor heating, private electric gated entrances and large secluded gardens.

The development is located just eight miles from Edinburgh city centre, with easy access to the airport and surrounding countryside.

Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director for Cala Homes (East), said: “Constructed to the edge of our Balerno development, the Avenue ensures buyers plenty of privacy and rural views.

The spacious homes boast five double bedrooms, modern open-plan living spaces, large private gardens and detached garages

“They also feature extremely large plot sizes, not often found in the area.

“These homes really do represent the pinnacle of family living - they are aspirational homes that don’t compromise on space, grandeur or spec, while also offering buyers city convenience alongside secluded, rural surroundings.”

There are a range of house styles available in the Avenue.

The homes offer an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, a large lounge overlooking an outdoor patio, a separate dining room for more formal entertaining, a study and a utility room.

Each has five double bedrooms upstairs, three with en-suite facilities. Master bedrooms also boast a dressing area.

Cala began developing 346 homes across two Balerno sites - Ravelrig Heights and Kingfisher Park - in 2017.

The Avenue is part of the final phase of Ravelrig Heights.
