A home to last a lifetime


Mactaggart & Mickel Homes’ attractive Thornybank Green development in Dalkeith offers residents the best of both worlds, from traditional village living in the town to the bustling city centre experience of Edinburgh.

The stylish four-bedroom Bressay villa is one of the signature house styles which has proved to be popular with a range of housebuyers. Offering flexible, spacious accommodation and value for money, it’s an ideal home that will grow and adapt to its owner’s needs.

On the ground floor, the lounge has double glazed doors leading to the spacious kitchen. With a large family dining area and French doors leading to the garden, the kitchen is the heart of the house. There is also the added convenience of a separate utility room adding practicality to the modern design.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying the luxury of an en-suite shower room. The fourth bedroom is a flexible space and has the option of being used as a study or other recreational space. A family bathroom completes the first floor.

The property also has an integral garage, which has the added benefit of access through the ground hall.

Stephen and Alison Lockett, who recently purchased a Bressay at Thornybank Green, commented: “A lot of the other new build sites we visited didn’t have a lot of space in the rooms or between houses. Thornybank Green was much more appealing with more space and a nice community feel.

“When we looked at the designs for the four-bedroom Bressay we really liked the layout of the house. It had a large living space on the ground floor, generously sized bedrooms as well as room for our gym.

“My favourite room in the house has to be the kitchen. I really enjoy cooking; I spend a lot of time there and the layout is perfect. There is lots of space and it’s designed to work around me which is great when I’m cooking up a storm.”

In addition to the Bressay, the development also offers the two-bedroom Uist and Rassay, three-bedroom Lismore and Broom, four-bedroom Arran and five-bedroom Islay and Colonsay. With a range of properties on offer it’s perfectly tailored to suit a variety of housebuyers, from those just getting on the property ladder to growing families.

Nearby Thornybank Green is the rolling splendour of the Dalkeith Country Estate; residents can make the most of the stunning countryside backdrop which surrounds the area – a great place to take walks during the summer months. For sports enthusiasts there are plenty of opportunities to indulge in some leisure pursuits at the picturesque golf courses at Newbattle and Kings Acre while racing aficionados can enjoy flat and national hunt racing at Musselburgh.
