Find your new home in an idyllic new community
Less than half an hour from Edinburgh and within walking distance of the beach, The Earls brings a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes to the newly-created community of Blindwells.
Set to bring 1,600 new homes to the scenic East Lothian coast, Blindwells is an exciting new project that will also offer education and healthcare facilities, shops and green spaces. This means that living at The Earls you'll benefit from essential amenities on your doorstep, a great sense of community and safe surroundings for those with families.
You'll also be able to strike an ideal work/life balance. Walk to the local train station from which you can reach the stunning city of Edinburgh in just 15 minutes, or stroll half an hour to the amenities of coastal town Prestonpans, also home to a lovely beach and coastal paths.
All of this and more makes The Earls a truly unique opportunity for a fresh start close to the capital.
In addition to the essential services set to be provided as part of the Blindwells project, nearby Prestonpans offers a good range of shops and facilities including a Lidl supermarket, convenience stores, independent shops and a medical centre. Just 1 miles south of The Earls, the charming town of Tranent offers an even wider selection of shops, restaurants and amenities. And of course for some serious retail therapy, Edinburgh is famous for its world-class shopping, from high street stores to a wealth of superb independent shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.
The Earls is ideally located for making the most of local schooling and extra-curricular activities for children of all ages. Along with the education facilities that will be provided in Blindwells, Prestonpans Infant School, Preston Tower Primary School, Preston Lodge High School and Ross High School are all just a few minutes' drive from the development. There's no shortage of sports and activities to enjoy thanks to Meadowmill Sports Centre just a stone's throw away, the nearby beach and scenic John Muir coastal trail.
Travelling couldn't be simpler, with Prestonpans train station 1.2 miles from the development. From there you can catch a direct 15-minute service to Edinburgh Waverley, and connecting routes to the rest of the UK. To travel by road, The Earls is just off the A1, which leads west to Edinburgh and east down to Newcastle. Finally, for travel further afield, Edinburgh Airport is a 25-minute drive away.
