2014 was an interesting and pretty successful year for the north-east housing market – especially at the higher end of it. If you weren’t lucky enough to bag a luxury property last year, 2015 is your chance. Here, we look at properties on the market over £700k
Bancon Homes has been building homes of exceptional quality in the north-east for more than 25 years. Milltimber West, situated around six miles west of Aberdeen in the popular suburb of Milltimber, is the latest exclusive development to proudly bear the Bancon name.
Location is crucial when it comes to choosing somewhere to live. Milltimber West, nestling in beautiful countryside with the desirable AB13 postcode, is an enviable setting. Home to a close-knit community of just over 2,500 people, Milltimber has much to offer those looking for an idyllic way of life. It is a thriving suburb and has a wide range of local amenities with the attractions and advantages of Aberdeen city being only a few miles away.
The small, luxury development offers an exclusive range of brand new house styles consisting of three, four and five-bedroom villas and townhouses. Phase one will have eight plots of which three are currently released for sale: two executive townhouses and a villa, all built to Bancon’s high-quality standards and offering purchasers an impressive “platinum” specifications package. A further five homes are being built at the development.
Looking forward to the Milltimber development, Shona Davidson, sales and marketing manager at Bancon Homes, said: “Situated in one of the most sought-after locations on the outskirts of Aberdeen, Milltimber West continues to receive a great deal of interest. These luxurious house styles certainly provide a unique opportunity for homebuyers to indulge in the place of their dreams.
“Superior new homes for sale are at a premium in Aberdeen and we’ve certainly experienced that in demand for our homes at Milltimber West.”
The two styles remaining are The Balmoral villa and The Braemar townhouses which both come with a double garage. Luxury exudes from every corner of these beautifully designed homes. They are sophisticated, spacious, light and airy, and have been designed to provide flexible accommodation to suit the ever-changing needs of modern living.
Well-planned public rooms with views across the Dee Valley will become the hub of daily life, as well as being a stunning setting for entertaining. The boutique-inspired bathrooms and en-suites are stylish and contemporary in appearance. The innovative and practical kitchens and dining areas create a lovely social space, and the bedrooms combine elegance and comfort.
Exclusive interior features at Milltimber West include quality oak-finish doors and feature staircases, German manufactured kitchens supplied by Kitchens International with feature glass splashbacks and a range of integrated appliances and beautiful French doors that open out onto spacious rear gardens.
Bancon’s homes are designed to be energy efficient with excellent insulation, ensuring comfortable temperatures.
Ms Davidson added: “At Bancon Homes we understand that buyers value the opportunity to personalise their own home. A brand new home is something special and choosing your very own specification is just as exciting as finding a new home in a great location. This is why we have introduced our platinum specification package at Milltimber West.
“This package makes the experience of choosing your own kitchen, tiling and a whole host of other additions an extremely enjoyable one. Working together with you in deciding these choices is an integral part of the experience of buying a Bancon home and you can be rest assured that each item has been carefully chosen to complement the style and finish of your new home.”
Prices for the remaining plots at Milltimber West start from £750,000.
Bancon Homes continues to expand its presence in the north-east with work now under way across the region on a number of developments as well as Milltimber West.
Among the new sites is the exclusive development Irvine Croft, at Drumoak, where four and five-bedroom homes are available for sale.
Staying in Aberdeenshire, 20 new three, four and five-bedroom properties will be built at Kemsley View, in Aboyne. Once again, the location offers buyers an escape from busy day-to-day life within commuting distance of Aberdeen.
Completing the portfolio of developments, on the western edge of Aberdeen city, the company is also anticipating the release of its biggest development to date, Maidencraig Village. This exciting development will offer a mix of one to five-bedroom apartments and villas.
Phase three of The Aspire development in Union Grove, Aberdeen, is also set to be release in Q1 of 2015. Aspire is a combination of one, two and three-bedroom new and refurbished prestige apartments and three-bedroom mews homes just a walk away from Union Street. The close proximity to the city centre is proving to be a big draw to potential buyers with the previous two phases selling out within hours.
Within Q1 of 2015 the company will also release Ambleside in Banchory a small exclusive development of 16 one and two bed duplex apartments and one and two bed apartments – all with parking.
This year will be an exciting one for Bancon Homes with a host of new homes planned across the region.
