A helping hand for first time buyers at Thornybank Green

Mactaggart & Mickel Homes is flying the flag to help first time buyers get on the property ladder by holding a special event at its Thornybank Green development in Dalkeith, Midlothian.

The event which will run from 31 May – 1 June, aims to provide prospective buyers with information and assistance on purchasing their first home. Along with being able to view the lovely showhomes, househunters will get the opportunity to speak to an independent mortgage adviser from Lifetime Planning who will be on hand to provide information on the Help To Buy (Scotland) scheme as well as the new Stamp Duty Incentive recently launched by Halifax.

Househunters interested in purchasing a house will also get the opportunity to speak to the on-site sales team at Thornybank Green to find out more about Mactaggart & Mickel Homes and the benefits of living in this attractive development.

The first phase of Thornybank Green will feature 33 homes boasting six property styles ranging from two-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom detached villas. Situated near the River Esk, residents are offered the best of both worlds with traditional village living combined with the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh city centre only eight short miles away.

The three-bedroom semi-detached Lismore is ideal for young families with its generously sized lounge and dining area – the perfect space to enjoy family life. The more superior three-bedroom detached Broom has a similar layout but also benefits from fully fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms.

For those looking for a larger home the four-bedroom Arran villa is also available at Thornybank Green. The spacious kitchen in the award-winning Arran is a great place to relax and unwind after a hard day, completed with views to the generous garden area. Space and design are the hallmark of the delightful Arran, with French doors in the kitchen and fluid walkways throughout the plan it is an open wonder.

Also on offer are the Raasay and Uist apartments which provide an airy, light living space with a sophisticated dining area. In addition there is plenty of practical storage throughout the properties such as fitted wardrobes in one bedroom and storage cupboards to hide away any clutter.

The rolling splendour of the Dalkeith Country Estate is also nearby, residents can make the most of the stunning countryside backdrop which surrounds the area – a great place to take walks during the summer months.
