Saxon Fields is our new collection of two, three, four and five terrace, semi-detached and detached homes in the ever-popular town of Haddington, East Lothian. Whether you’re a first-time buyer, have a growing family or looking to invest, Saxon Fields is bound to have what you’re looking for.
There's even a scheme on the development called Low Cost Home Ownership which means if you’re local to the area you could buy a new home for 32% of the market value but still own 100% of the property! It’s a fantastic opportunity and one which many have already taken up as there are only two homes still available in the scheme.
Saxon Fields is located on the edge of the charming little town of Haddington which is nestled under the Garleton Hills on the banks of the River Tyne. Located between the beautiful Lammermuir Hills and the area’s stunning beaches and dramatic coastline, Haddington is also just 17 miles from Edinburgh. The name Haddington is Anglo-Saxon, dating from the 6th or 7th century AD when the area was incorporated into the kingdom of Bernicia – this piece of history is celebrated in the development’s name of ‘Saxon Fields’.
Haddington is such a popular place to live because it provides a great range of services in beautiful historic town setting. There’s a choice of restaurants and bars, a sports centre (with swimming pool), supermarkets, unique independent shops, high street retailers and a regular farmers’ market. The town also has highly-regarded state primary and secondary schools as well as private schooling locally at The Compass in Haddington, Loretto in Musselburgh and Belhaven Hill in Dunbar, with Edinburgh offering even more choice and further education options.
Those of you who enjoy the outdoors will be spoilt when it comes to countryside and coastal walking as there’s so much choice locally. The town itself also has a good selection of green open space including Neilson Park with its children’s play area, skate park, and tennis courts, all in beautiful well-tended grounds. Scotland’s National Museum of Flight is only 3 miles away and is the home of Concorde - a great place to learn about our nation’s aviation history. St Mary’s Pleasance, the beautiful garden of Haddington House is another of the town’s hidden gems.
With its varied selection of beautifully-designed homes in a highly sought-after town, along with its proximity to the countryside, coast and the city of Edinburgh, Saxon Fields is in a truly enviable setting.
Persimmon and East Lothian Council are offering a fantastic opportunity for local people in Haddington.
Owning your own home could become a reality with Low Cost Home Ownership. We have two new homes for sale at 32% of the market value, but you'll still own 100% of the property!
