Last chance to snap up affordable homes with CALA in Balerno

A PREMIUM housing developer is offering buyers the final chance to snap up properties in the desirable suburb of Balerno for a fraction of the price – thanks to its ‘Golden Share’ homes.

On offer via the City of Edinburgh Council’s Golden Share scheme, CALA Homes (East) is giving house hunters the opportunity to purchase one of just four remaining three-bedroom homes priced £214,795 under this initiative at its Kingfisher Park development.

These ‘Golden Share’ properties are available at a discounted price to buyers who meet the eligibility criteria, and offer the ideal opportunity to own 100% of the property but pay only 80% of its market value.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes (East), is encouraging interested buyers to visit the development in order to take advantage of the unique opportunity to purchase one of these limited three-bedroom homes in the idyllic setting of Balerno.

He said: “The opportunity of ‘Golden Share’ is really too good to miss as it gives first time buyers, or those looking to move further up the property ladder, the chance to secure their dream home at a lower price.

“You only have to look at the success of the initiative to see its value to buyers – those interested should reserve now in order to take advantage of the offer and avoid disappointment.

“What is important is the ‘Golden Share’ homes are truly integrated into the Kingfisher Park development and offer the same bespoke style and high specification synonymous with CALA.”

Set in one of Edinburgh’s most sought-after suburbs, the last remaining homes are expected to mirror the success of the initiative at CALA’s neighbouring Ravelrig Heights development in Balerno, where all 12 Golden Share properties have now been reserved.

The three-bedroom ‘Annick’ property offers an ideal home for first-time buyers or those seeking more space.

With the ideal balance of semi-rural living, buyers can expect efficient travel links into the capital while also benefiting from the tranquillity and charm of suburban life.

Local amenities in the area are plentiful, with open green spaces and a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants on the village high street.

To be eligible for a Golden Share property, buyers must be able to demonstrate that the home is suitable for their current needs and reside in the property as their permanent and only home.
