New properties for sale in the Scottish Highlands: Exquisite homes in the heart of the Cairngorms

Scotia Homes
New homes are a rarity in this part of Scotland; this development of two and three bedroom homes – on sale now – fit beautifully into this part of the Highlands.

The Cairngorms is one of the world’s most celebrated areas of natural beauty. It is the UK’s largest National Park and home to a host of iconic species - from native wildcats, to capercaillies, mountain hares, golden eagles and osprey.

The park, which spreads over 1750 square miles, is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts year round, with three ski resorts, the Caledonian forest - the last major ancient woodland in the British Isles – and five of the six highest mountains in Scotland.

What the area doesn’t have a lot of is human inhabitants. It has one of the lowest population densities in Europe.

Kincraig, just south of Aviemore, is a quintessential Highland village with everything that an outdoor enthusiast could want. Loch Insch has its own watersports centre offering sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking, and beautiful spots for fishing, cycling and hill walking are all on your doorstep. For the adventurous, a little further east at Feshiebridge, is the landing strip of the Cairngorm Gliding Club.

New homes are rare in the area, but the first phase of a development of two and three bedroom homes in Kincraig, called Baldow Meadows, is just nearing completion, with a second phase planned by developer Scotia Homes.

As you would expect, the homes have been sensitively designed to fit in this very special location.

The houses at Baldow Meadows exemplify a clean and attractive style that has been tailored to complement the natural beauty of the surrounding area. With pitched roofs, white render and low maintenance cladding, these textures and tones bring a real sense of warmth, and are a nod to the older buildings in the historic village.

Baldow Meadows is a collection of exquisite homes in an idyllic location. With a focus on quality, our customers can expect carefully considered interiors within a spacious and desirable neighbourhood; a place that you can feel at home.”

Scotia Homes are also well known – and award-winning – for their place-making skills, which are highlighted at Baldow Meadows by the amount of green spaces, quiet roadside and cul-de-sac locations and the consideration for privacy afforded to each home.

The size and layout of the individual homes have been designed to suit buyers including locals, families, retirees and those opting for a lifestyle move from elsewhere.

The Baldow Meadows homes all share a spacious airiness on the inside, and a design for year round enjoyment, whether that is patio doors which open to the garden for a place to have a drink with a view to the mountains, or the protection of a carport to bring in the shopping in the depths of winter. Practical utility rooms and outdoor shed storage are included.

Future proofing is another important consideration in the design, with the homes having a high energy efficiency rating, air source heat pumps, A-rated double glazing and superior insulation.

The weather in the Cairngorms can be chilly, but with underfloor heating you can enjoy the snow on the hills from the cosiness and comfort of your new home.

The first phase is down to its final few two and three-bedroom homes so viewing is essential but with phase two anticipated for later this year, now is your opportunity to register interest and to speak with Scotia's sales team.
