Cruden Homes has launched a new phase of homes at their award-winning Meadowside development. Situated in the picturesque village of Aberlady, just 18 miles from Edinburgh, and with easy access via the A1 or by train from nearby North Berwick or Longniddry stations, Meadowside offers village living with an easy commute to the city.

With a variety of outdoor activities, 40 miles of coastline, and cafes, bars and restaurants on the doorstep, the development is already proving to be hugely popular with buyers attracted not only by the superb family homes available, but also by the lifestyle this picturesque and tranquil location offers. 

There are three types of house styles for sale in the new phase, many with west-facing gardens, and all designed exclusively for their picturesque location, including the four-bedroom semi-detached Benson, the four-bedroom detached Durrell and the five-bedroom detached Harper.

The Benson property features a spacious living room and a well-equipped open plan kitchen and dining area with direct access to the rear garden. Upstairs there is the spacious master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a well-proportioned family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower.

In addition to a comfortable living room in the impressive detached Durrell property, there is a super open plan kitchen and dining area ideal for family mealtimes or entertaining and also offers direct access to the garden. There is also ample storage downstairs and a separate practical utility. Upstairs you will find four good-sized bedrooms, two of which feature en-suite shower rooms, and a great family bathroom.

The fantastic five-bedroom detached Harper offers a charming open plan kitchen and dining area with doors leading out to the rear garden, and a handy utility off to the side that offers access to the garden and a downstairs wc. A spacious living room to the front of the property is perfect for entertaining.  Located upstairs, a comfortable master bedroom offers a luxurious en-suite with bath and shower, and a  second double bedroom offers an en-suite shower room.  Three further bedrooms, one of which would make an ideal home office, and a spacious family bathroom completes the living space upstairs.

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing director of Cruden Homes, said: “The three house styles released in this phase offer generous and flexible living spaces and are perfect for family living, entertaining and home working.  Meadowside offers beautiful homes in one of the prettiest villages in East Lothian and with interest levels high and a number of plots already reserved in this phase, I would urge prospective buyers to make an appointment to visit without delay.”

The first homes in the new phase will be ready to move in to from September, and Cruden Homes is offering buyers the option to take advantage of their popular Part Exchange and Guaranteed Buyer initiatives. 

With prices starting at £358,000 for the Benson, £435,000 for the Durrell and £497,000 for the Harper, all three property styles offer exceptional value and an interior specification reflecting the top-end appeal of the development. 

Prospective buyers can visit the four-bedroom detached Catesby and the five-bedroom Fain showhomes at the Meadowside development where the show home is open by appointment from Thursday to Monday, 11.00am to 5.00pm.
