Silverfields development launch exceeds expectations
04 February 2016
The launch of a new, £10 million housing development in Edinburgh has exceeded all expectations and is being hailed as a great success.
Offering a superb selection of 82 city-living homes, Silverfields will include two bedroom apartments, and three and four bedroom town houses, with prices starting from £215,000.
More than 1,000 potential buyers registered their interest in buying a home at Silverfields before a single brick had been laid, and we are encouraging buyers to act quickly if they want to secure their new home and take advantage of early deals.
Jim Kirkpatrick, managing director at Persimmon Homes East Scotland, said: "We are delighted to launch our Silverfields development, which has been incredibly well received.
Given this level of interest, we strongly recommend that would-be buyers come and see us now in order to avoid disappointment – we fully expect demand to outstrip availability.
There is a great need for new homes in the Edinburgh area, and our development at Silverfields offers a fantastic urban location with a wide selection of property types at an affordable price."
Jim added that buying early can bring huge benefits to house-hunters.
He said: "Buying off-plan gives buyers the chance to personalise their home through the selection of selected items such as kitchen units and worktops, bathroom fittings, wall tiles and flooring."
As part of the planning agreement, Persimmon will inject £300,000 into the local community through contributions to transport, infrastructure and education. The company has already donated a selection of high viz vests to all the youngsters at Gaelic school Parkside Primary School, which is adjacent to the development.
Silverfields offers the best of both worlds as it is set close to the historic Leith docks but within walking distance of Edinburgh’s cosmopolitan city centre. It is also convenient for all major road, rail and air links.
Furthermore, as an added bonus, buyers looking to move into their dream home will be able to access the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.
