Residential park home development brings new lease of life to Perthshire site

HERITAGE Park Estates has announced the launch of a new multi-million pound residential development which is transforming the site of what was an existing residential park just outside Blairgowrie.

Burnbank Residential Park at Carsie offers over 38 park homes in its first phase, built by manufacturer Willerby Bespoke. Local building firm McKenzie Burke is involved in providing a craft finish to the development, which has already been subject to extensive new landscaping and installation of new infrastructure.

Customers have the opportunity to add bespoke elements to their new properties, subject to build schedule.

Another local supplier is Simple Approach Estate Agency, based in Perth, which will assist with sales. So far the site has attracted buyers from as far afield as Australia.

Representing an investment of around £350,000, with more work to be carried out over the summer months as lockdown eases, Burnbank Park features a new electric gate entrance with 24-hour CCTV, mono-blocked central road and forecourt, new lighting, and the creation of a dedicated sales and aftercare suite.

With the Willerby factory open again in England, new properties are arriving on a daily basis.

Nathan Smith said, “We’re very excited to present this stunning new residential park to market at this time, and to be working with Willerby Bespoke, one of the best names in the industry. We’re also using local tradesmen and will continue to do so as the park takes shape.”

Simon Sleep, business development manager at Willerby Bespoke added, “We are delighted that Heritage Park Estates has chosen to work closely with us. We are very proud of our product range, where quality and design are our priority. We are confident that the industry will bounce back after Covid-19 and are committed to supporting Heritage Park Estates and their customers at this time.

“We see park home living is becoming ever more popular in Scotland, particularly with those looking to downsize. Park homes are ideal for those looking for a maintenance-free and secure environment to live in. Willerby offers highly specified properties that offer all that the home comforts and style needed to enjoy life.”

Nathan Smith explained that the land at Burnbank Park was already being used as a residential park when he purchased it, but was in need of ‘investment and vision’ to meet today’s residential park home standards.

“Downsizing customers are very discerning nowadays, often taking time to find the right park for their needs,” he added. “The park was in a great location, with strong transport links and a bus stop right outside, but we wanted to create something special. I think what we have done is not just meet their requirements –with a wide house-type choice, with security, with lifestyle – but actually exceed them, so overall I hope that all who view will be impressed.”

The park has already secured sales as a result of its online virtual tour.

“This park is the result of many months of careful planning,” Nathan explained. “Each park home has its own driveway and private garden, as outside space is very important, together with a full 10-year building warranty, just like a new build bungalow. There are lovely views on all sides, and we want our residents to be able to appreciate them. If they travel part of the year, they can be safe in the knowledge that their home will be safe and looked after whilst they are away.

“We also wanted to offer a bespoke element as everyone’s requirements are different. McKenzie Burke have years of experience and a great name locally – so our buyers can have peace of mind when putting their stamp on their property.”
