Step Onto the Property Ladder in Style at Fairmilehead

Aspiring house hunters are being offered the chance to get a foothold at the company’s prestigious Fairmilehead development in the sought after EH10 area, by snagging themselves a three bedroom Arthur home.

Six of the three-bedroom terraced homes have just been released to the market with prices from £385,000 and are expected to attract great attention, after the previous phase sold out in double quick time.

While the Arthur is the most modest house amongst the Signature Range at CALA’s Fairmilehead development it remains a generously proportioned home across two floors and is a huge draw for young families, offering space for working, living and playing.

Sarah Stanger, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes (East), said: “The three bedroom Arthur homes have been hugely popular for us across our developments in the East of Scotland.

“What makes them so attractive is that they have everything buyers expect from CALA in terms of location, proportions and quality, all at a price which also delivers great value

“For a number of house hunters this is the ideal point for them to get a toehold in a CALA development, that is within their location of choice.”

CALA Homes, the UK’s most upmarket major homebuilder is headquartered in Scotland and employs 600 people. Its reputation was earned on the high quality of the homes it builds in developments which are sensitively designed to augment the areas in which they sit.


The result is that its homes are not only highly sought after, but retain their value over decades and earn loyalty from owners, who often live in a series of CALA properties.

Sarah added: “We have many, many CALA home owners who have lived in a number of our properties, often trading up after starting out in one of our three bedroom homes. It is a great route into the CALA lifestyle.”

That has never been truer than in the EH10 postcode where finding achievable starter homes can be tricky with buyers flocking to the area to take advantage of the top schools, superb views of the Pentland hills and host of nearby amenities.

Sarah said: “It made sense to build something suitable for growing families so that the high quality of life the area has to offer could be matched by a high quality home without them having to over extend for a larger house that they may not yet be ready for.

“The Arthurs are perfectly formed with plenty of space for entertaining. All of this means they are also a real hit with young couples and also with downsizers.

“In fact, the first phase, proved so popular and sold out so quickly we decided to release the second phase ahead of schedule due to the pent up demand. We expect these will also be snapped up quickly, as this is an opportunity to live in one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious neighbourhoods.”

The spacious three bedroom Arthur properties are available from £385,000.

Combining traditional living with a large formal lounge with a more laid back style of kitchen/dining area for those looking to cook and entertain at the same time, there is a space for every social occasion in the airy, light filled home.

Meanwhile, upstairs, from the galleried landing, the Arthur offers a family bathroom complete with bath and separate shower, a roomy master bedroom with en suite shower room and double fitted wardrobes, a second bedroom also with fitted wardrobes and a third bedroom which could be used as a study for those working from home.

With the rolling Pentland hills as a backdrop, the hustle and bustle of the city centre just five miles south and just a stone’s throw away from the Morningside district, there are fewer places better positioned for buyers looking to make the most of living in Scotland’s vibrant capital.
