Work starts at our major housing development in Edinburgh
20 April 2015
The Persimmon Homes East Scotland region has started building at its new 20-acre housing development in South Gyle, Edinburgh.The £24 million development named Station Mews is located at the historic St Augustine's School site and will provide 204 properties. The site will feature a mix of homes to suit a range of buyers, offering a stylish collection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes along with a range of two bedroom apartments.
The development launched at the end of March with the first homes to be completed in November 2015. Jim Kirkpatrick, managing director for Persimmon Homes East Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to get construction under-way and address the known demand for our quality new homes in the central Edinburgh area.
“We’re confident that the range of properties on offer will meet the needs of the local housing market and appeal to families just starting out as well as those looking to move to a bigger home with more space.
“Buying a new home is now more affordable and straightforward than ever thanks to a range of buying incentives including the Government-backed Help to Buy, Home Change, where we assist you in selling your existing house and the Persimmon Part Exchange scheme, where we buy your old home for its full market value.”
The development will also contribute Section 75 funding of £518,476 for educational purposes in the community and deliver 51 mixed tenure ‘affordable homes’.
