Construction is underway on Scotland’s first Ortus Homes developments in Alloway and Edinburgh

Construction on Scotland’s first two luxury Ortus Homes developments has now commenced.

And with apartments at The Pines on Doonholm Road in Alloway due to go on sale from April 2015, and apartments at The Limes on Murrayfield Drive in Murrayfield due to go on sale from May 2015, interested buyers are urged to register their interest soon.

Each development will offer contemporary retirement apartments that are exclusive for those aged over 55, complete with a choice of fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms, on-site parking and private balconies or terraces. The Pines will offer a selection of 20 apartments, whilst The Limes development in Murrayfield will consist of 16 apartments.

The Pines in Alloway is within easy reach of the vibrant town centre of Ayr and provides a range of strong transport links to the Ayrshire coast as well as Glasgow, whilst The Limes sits in the leafy and established residential area of Murrayfield which enjoys a superb range of local facilities, as well as exceptional transport links to Edinburgh city centre.

Ortus Homes is an innovative concept from retirement home specialists, the McCarthy and Stone group, to give over 55s the freedom to enjoy their leisure years in idyllic locations without the worry of maintaining a large family home. \..

There are already a number of Ortus Homes developments south of the Border, and both The Pines and The Limes in Murrayfield mark the first of their kind in Scotland.

Rosemary Giovino, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone in Scotland said:

“The concept of Ortus Homes is simple; it’s about rightsizing your space to allow you to upsize your lifestyle. It’s not about compromise, it’s about making the right life choices to help you preserve your lifestyle and make it more enjoyable.

“It’s exciting that we are now able to bring the concept of Ortus Homes to Scotland. There are already a number of Ortus developments in England that have been very well received and the ethos behind the brand complements our property portfolio in Scotland perfectly.”

Ortus Homes creates high quality, intelligently designed apartments and outdoor spaces in feel good locations, enabling customers to downsize and maintain their active lifestyle. Through a focus on low maintenance living, the development will provide purchasers with the opportunity to spend more time on the activities that are important to them.

Rosemary Giovino, continued: “The utmost attention is being paid to ensuring the architectural design of both developments to meet the demands of discerning property owners without them having to compromise on the things that matter, such as privacy and living space.

“We’re excited to see both of our Scottish Ortus Homes developments come to life, and when you consider that we’re expecting our first buyers to take ownership at The Pines in Autumn 2015, and around November 2015 at The Limes in Murrayfield, customers who are considering a move to either development should register their details as soon as possible so we can keep them up-to-date with our progress.”
