A new showhome has been launched to showcase mews living at Whiteburn’s Parkview development in Dundee which has encompassed a redevelopment of a Victorian school, a lodge house and new build mews and apartments.

There are three of the new-build two bedroom apartments, seven mews homes and a final one bedroom apartment within the original school conversion now available.

The innovative development enjoys spectacular views across the River Tay.

The selection of two bedroom apartments and two and four bedroom mews homes have striking exteriors with zinc cladding and local stone. This area of the development also benefits from private sheltered courtyards providing a landscaped entrance to the new homes.

Each apartment has a south-facing balcony that offers incredible views over the river while inside the full-length glazing creates light, bright living spaces and maximises the stunning views. The apartments are all served by lifts.

The exteriors of the new-build mews are equally impressive, with zinc cladding and full height glazing at the gable ends, whilst courtyard–facing sheltered balconies on the upper floors, together with patio areas and private gardens on the ground floor, aim to offer a balance of outdoor personal space.

Inside, the mews homes offer buyers inverted living space where bedrooms and bathrooms are on the ground floor, and the kitchen and living space are on the upper level with full volume ceilings.

Eve McCurrich, development manager for Whiteburn says: “We’ve already welcomed a number of new homeowners to our Parkview development, and 75 per cent of our 12 new build apartments have already sold.

“Launching our two bedroom mews showhome gives us the opportunity to show prospective buyers the true potential of this unique development and the inverted living space designed to maximise the incredible views this development enjoys from almost every window, whether it’s the tranquillity of Victoria Park and views of Balgay Hill or the ever-changing movements of the River Tay.”

A new website for the Parkview development has also been launched which aims to give interested buyers all the information they need to make an informed choice for their next property move.

The Parkview development will create 45 new homes. The remaining two bedroom new build apartments are fixed price starting from £210,000. Two bedroom mews homes start from £235,000, whilst the final one bedroom apartment in the original school conversion is available for £147,950.

The Grade B listed Parkview school building at the heart of the development, completed in 1896, is a Dundee landmark with circular towers and arched stone dormers.
