Despite the wide belief that prices in the Scottish Capital are unaffordable, those looking to find a new home in Edinburgh will find a surprising number of new-build homes on the market for under £200,000. Perfect for first-time buyers, young professionals and downsizers looking for a city pad, these apartments are all within easy reach of Edinburgh city centre.
Despite being home to a number of charming coastal towns and having a nice mix of towns and rural areas, for many house-hunters the biggest draw of Midlothian is its proximity to the capital. Edinburgh city centre can be reached from most parts of the county in well under half an hour and excellent public transport links make this the ideal base for commuters in the east of Scotland.
With the Edinburgh Festival now in full swing, the capital is buzzing and for those deciding they'd like to live in the city, housebuilders have a host of new-build properties on the market. Just as the Festival Fringe has something for everyone, house-hunters looking for a new home in Edinburgh will be hard pushed not to find something to suit them.
Due to its close proximity and easy access to Edinburgh city centre, Midlothian has always been popular with commuters. However, the area also has an abundance of scenic countryside, rolling hills, country parks and places to visit as well as a large number of leisure facilities. All these things combine to make the area appeal to a wide range of house-hunters looking to buy a new home in the east of Scotland.
Last weekend saw the launch of Queensberry Properties' latest development of new-build homes in Edinburgh. Situated at The Inch near Cameron Toll, just three miles from the city centre, Melior Green will comprise an inspiring collection of 21 one- and two-bedroom apartments when completed.
When searching for new-build apartments and houses for sale, many house hunters automatically turn to the big names in housebuilding to see what's available. However, buyers who don't also consider the smaller companies may be denying themselves the home of their dreams. Scots are lucky to have a great choice of housebuilders constructing interesting developments across the country and the smaller and lesser-known ones are certainly holding their own in the property market.
