Housebuilder adds insulated garden rooms as buying option

ALLANWATER Homes is offering buyers across its five current Scottish developments the option to buy a fully constructed and insulated garden room.

The rooms are available in four different designs, and priced from £20,000.

The housebuilder offers Rocha sanitaryware, Zanussi stainless steel appliances with induction hobs, thermostatic showers, kitchens, monoblock driveways, solar panels, and USB charging stations.

Buyers at selected developments have the option to upgrade kitchens to those designed by Michelin chef Michel Roux Jr, who has teamed up with manufacturer Moores.

The move is part of a push in the firm’s 40th year to ensure its overall offer is one of the best in the marketplace.

“We’re very excited to be branching out to offer fully constructed and insulated garden rooms at very competitive price points, as options for buyers with specific lifestyle needs,” said Cheryl McGeever, sales and marketing manager for Allanwater Homes. “These are industry leading luxury rooms which stand apart from others as they are supplied fully insulated at point of installation – many other models are not, meaning they can be far too cold to use in the Winter, especially if they are to be a workspace.

“With many more people having to work or learn remotely from home, perhaps several in the one family, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we are confident  that they will be a very popular option.”

Cheryl added that Allanwater Homes would provide certification of the structural integrity on the garden homes. When it comes to home office use, the rooms allow for technical solutions, such as smart control systems for heating, ergonomic seating, smart plug sockets and voice-activated services such as Alexa or Google to control home functions whilst buyers work.

“Even if they are not being used as a home office, many people are using garden rooms for hobby work, for children’s play rooms, for gaming, keep fit studios and many other uses,” she explained. “They are an enhancement to both your home and garden.”

Allanwater Homes has developments across the Hillfoots, Stirlingshire and Fife, with new developments coming soon to Kirkcaldy, Haddington, Glasgow and Stirling.
