Keen buyers can now explore two new showhomes at CHAP Homes’ Countesswells and Crest of Lochter developments.
At Countesswells, CHAP Homes is building 30 three and four-bedroom homes of varied and distinctive design, with first release prices ranging from £257,995 to £437,995.
The four-bed Ormaig showhome opened earlier this year, with a new showhome — the three bed semi-detached Kintraw — now open. Prices for this start at £259,995.
You can find out more about both showhomes at CHAP Home’s upcoming Christmas event. The Westhill-based housebuilder is hosting a festive coffee, cake and cocktails event, courtesy of the team at Figment. This will take place at the development on 16 November between noon and 3pm.
Those coming along will be able to take advantage of limited-time incentives, including £99 reservations made on 16 or 17 November and legal fees paid, as well as a £1,000 introduce-a-friend bonus (terms and conditions apply).
Plus, an independent financial advisor will be on hand to discuss mortgage options.
Denise Goodwin, Countesswells sales advisor, said: “Our location in the development is perfect. We’re moments from the Cults Burn Park and the community orchard. Plus, we’re a couple of minutes’ walk to the site of the new primary school, due to open in 2021.”
Inside, the homes make use of the very latest energy-efficient features from combi boilers, photovoltaic solar panels and — in select homes — advanced hybrid heating systems using air source heat recovery.
And, as well as stunning modern kitchens, bathrooms and en-suites, the development’s connected to the Grain hyperfast broadband network so you’ll experience some of the fastest broadband speeds in the UK with unlimited data.
Crest of Lochter
In Crest of Lochter, the new showhome is a three-bedroom Cullerlie with porch (prices start from £259,995).
The recently-announced second phase comprises two, three and four-bed houses just 30 minutes’ drive from Aberdeen, with prices starting from £204,990.
The development sits adjacent to the Ury Riverside Park, and boasts stunning views of Bennachie from some properties. It’s also beside the local primary school, with the academy and the town centre just a short distance away.
One of the flagship properties — the four-bedroom detached Lochbuie villa — has a porch picked out in charcoal stone. Downstairs, as well as the large lounge and kitchen diner, there’s a home office, and upstairs the master bedroom has its own dressing room.
But it’s the specification that makes these homes so special.
Karen Davidson, CHAP Homes sales supervisor said: “We all look for different things in our perfect home, but chances are CHAP Homes ticks a lot of those boxes when it comes to specification.
“Our kitchens are manufactured in Germany and include the usual high standard of engineering you’d expect. Most homes have their own utility room and those with three bedrooms or more have separate baths and shower cubicles in family bathrooms, which also feature quality Spanish sanitaryware and Porcelanosa tiles.
“Shower cubicles feature Sensations Zone toughened safety glass with Lifeshield protection, helping repel dirt and make cleaning quick and easy, and walk-in cubicles have 10mm-thick glass Zen panels. Roca’s dual shower columns, incorporating a large drench head with rain function, give each bathroom or en-suite a luxury feel.”
Karen adds: “And of course, while our standard specifications are excellent, there are times when we all want something even more special, and when it comes to aspects like floorcoverings, a top-notch kitchen specification, charging points for electric vehicles, or assistance with garden lay-outs, we can help.”
Incentives are available for homes in both these developments and can be tailored to suit.
Depending on the buyer’s timescale and the plot they like, these can include free floor coverings, help with legal fees or paid land and buildings transaction tax (LBTT).
In some cases where the customer has a property to sell, the housebuilder can offer the additional peace of mind of an assured sale.
Here buyers reserve a CHAP home and look to sell their existing home on the open market. If it hasn’t sold by an agreed cut-off date, usually around four weeks before the entry date, then the developer will purchase it at a previously agreed price.
The Crest of Lochter showhome is open Thursday to Monday 11am to 5pm, and Sundays noon to 4pm. Contact Christine on 07920 138574 or email email@example.com for more information.
The ountesswells showhome is open Thursday to Monday 10.30am to 5.30pm. Contact Denise Goodwin on 07796 446881 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
