Last chance to grab a bargain home at Kinloss.
Last year, Your Home reported that sales of homes at a former RAF base in Moray were soaring.
Almost 300 houses – once used by serving military personnel based at RAF Kinloss – lay empty for years before being purchased by The Julian Hodge Bank, who subsequently arranged for the refurbishment of the estate.
Known now as the Southside Development, Kinloss, it’s regarded very much as a success story, given the economic background prevalent at the outset, and the general state of both the housing and mortgage markets at that time.
Assisted by Wink and MacKenzie Solicitors in Elgin for both the initial site acquisition and the subsequent estate agency and conveyancing work on sales, the development welcomed its first residents in May 2012.
Since then, it’s gone from strength to strength, becoming a well-established community where only 12 of the remaining original 302 properties are now available for sale.
The Julian Hodge Bank is delighted with the success of the Southside Development and the community spirit that has been injected into the area – which was always an important consideration.
It’s easy to see why it is so appealing to many.
The picturesque and popular Findhorn village is a short drive or cycle ride away, while there are both nursery and primary schools within walking distance, plus transport links to Forres Academy.
Southside Estate appeals to all types of buyer and those who range from first-time buyers to families and retired folk, all bringing new life to the area, and all of whom have been able to take advantage of some exceptionally attractive pricing by the bank to obtain their new home.
The last dozen properties are priced at an affordable level – ranging from £89,250 to £92,750 for a three-bedroom property. With additional discounts available for military and ex-military personnel, these are likely to be snapped up soon.
