Westburn Park offers city slickers a leafy summer retreat filled with open spaces, grass areas and mature trees away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby busy city centre.
The 10 hectare site is a popular recreational spot, with people flocking to the park for a casual stroll, dog walk or jog. And with picnic tables and benches scattered throughout, the area is also the perfect spot for eating al fresco on sunny days.
Award-winning housebuilder Barratt Homes is currently offering buyers the chance to secure their very own piece of park life thanks to its latest Aberdeen city development, Westburn Gardens which is just a short walk from the popular spot.
A limited range of luxury renovated Victorian apartments, including duplex penthouses, are available for prospective buyers keen to enjoy all the comforts you’d expect from a modern home, with the unique characteristics retained from the iconic granite buildings.
Mike Cowie, Sales and Marketing Director at Barratt North Scotland, commented: “The renovated apartments at Westburn Gardens are the pinnacle of luxury, boasting architectural grandeur, a top spec modern finish and an enviable green city centre location.
“These exclusive properties have all of the benefits of buying a new build home including energy efficiency, fixed pricing and financial incentives but also the opportunity to snap up a bit of Aberdeen’s unique granite heritage.”
Here, the five star housebuilder provides a helpful guide to making the most of Westburn Park’s offering this summer.
