A pair of highly anticipated new showhomes, from upmarket homebuilder CALA Homes (East), have opened at Midlothian’s latest housing hotspot.

The two properties at Mayburn Park, Straiton, are expected to prove popular with house hunters seeking a luxury lifestyle with just a short commute into Edinburgh city centre.

Both specially-designed showhomes – a four bedroom Cleland and a five bedroom Crichton – reflect the benefits offered by the family friendly development, with spacious layouts, gardens, en suite bathrooms and generous built-in storage.

Interior designers, BLOCC, were tasked with bringing the two showhomes to life at the development, which is just minutes from both the city bypass and Straiton Retail Park.

Suzanne Kerley, creative sales director at BLOCC, explained how her team were inspired by the setting and wanted the properties to reflect this.

She said: “With the four bedroom Cleland we’ve used a mix of painted wooden and wire furniture to give the design a modern and slightly unusual edge.

“The colour palette is also distinctive. As well as ivory, creams and tonal greys, we’ve injected vibrant colours throughout. Those splashes of orange, aqua, fuchsia and mustard yellow mean it will have wide appeal.

“For the five bedroom Crichton, we’ve designed it in a classic, modern style, with subtle twists towards retro and industrial inspired furniture.

“Here, we’ve used warm woods with gloss finishes, which are mirrored and painted. Again we’ve added similar injections of colour like purple and teal throughout, to bring a bright and bold feel which we believe will also appeal to the younger buyer.”

Situated off Loanhead Road, Mayburn Park offers a selection of three, four and five bedroom homes. The development’s location means that it is well connected in every way with convenient road links and public transport for swift and easy access into and across the capital.

Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director at CALA Homes (East), said: “The showhomes are bold and imaginative and will give house hunters an added insight into what life in this development will be like.

“We’ve already had major interest and that demand is testament to the combination of our high quality homes in a really prime location. The possibilities are truly showcased by the Cleland and Crichton showhomes.”

The first phase of Mayburn Park, offering a selection of four and five bedroom homes, is now available with prices from £349,000.
