Last week we highlighted some great new-build homes in Dunfermline but there are also some fabulous developments worth checking out in the wider Fife area. House- hunters looking to find a new home in the east of Scotland will find they can get much more for their money here than they would in Edinburgh, but still be within a half-hour commute to the city centre.

Aberdeenshire Council's Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee granted an outline planning application to start transforming 2,000 acres of farmland into a vibrant new community with 4,025 new homes, Chapelton of Elsick. A detailed application for the first 802 homes was also passed.
Work will begin on the £2billion development in summer this year. The new town, Scotland's largest, will include a range of homes and schools, a town centre and green space with a focus on sustainability.
Dunfermline is one of Scotland's fastest-growing towns. Situated in Fife and boasting a host of great local amenities, a relatively easy commute to Edinburgh and scenic countryside all around, it's easy to see why. House-hunters looking to find a new home in Dunfermline will find something to suit all tastes and budgets as housebuilders strive to appeal to the wide target audience of people who want to live here.
In a recent independently conducted satisfaction survey, 100% of buyers at Stewart Milne Homes' luxury Newton Mearns development, Greenwood Manor, gave the housebuilder top marks for the buying experience and said they would recommend them to their best friend.
Following the welcome boost this year's budget gave to homebuyers, Taylor Wimpey in Scotland has now raised eligibility for its Easystart shared equity scheme from homes up to £170,000, to those selling for up to £250,000. The scheme will now also be available to both first- and second-time buyers.
Ambitious plans to develop up to 16,000 affordable homes in Edinburgh in the next decade will be debated at City Chambers this week.
As a new phase of homes is released there, would-be first-time homebuyers are being given a helping hand at Orchard Park in Motherwell, where developer Bett Homes is now offering shared equity on some of new homes currently available there. This means that they can own an apartment at the development for less than £80 per week.
