‘Golden share’ apartments designed to provide luxury living for over-55s in Kinross

EIGHT discounted ‘Golden Share’ apartments are on sale now to eligible buyers at Juniper Residential’s Muirwood Gardens development in Kinross.

Delivered in conjunction with Perth & Kinross Council, the homes are priced at 80% of market value, with selected plots available at just 60% of market value.

Prospective buyers are invited to afternoon tea on Friday, 27 May, when they can find out more about the eligibility criteria for the Golden Share initiative and hear more about the development.

The two-bedroom cottage apartments with open-plan lounge/kitchens are part of an exclusive community for over-55s comprised of bungalows, villas and cottage flats, all of which are described to have been designed to provide luxury living that’s flexible enough to accommodate changing needs.

The homes are said to have a ’boutique’ feel, with standard features including eye-level integrated Bosch appliances, raised power sockets and comfort height WCs. Smart technology offers the option of adding extra features to enhance independent living at any point in the future and the development includes a club lounge for social activities and a guest suite.

There is also three hours of free ‘handyperson’ support to help new homeowners with hanging pictures, assembling flat-pack furniture and other moving-in tasks.

Muirwood Gardens lies adjacent to Kinross Golf Course.

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing director, Juniper, said, “Buyers have been telling us that they want to ‘future proof’ their comfort and security while they get on with living their lives to the full, and they appreciate the fact that at Muirwood Gardens they are buying a beautiful, contemporary home in a like minded community. The development has attracted buyers from all over the UK and the Club Lounge has already become the social hub of the community.

“We’re now thrilled to be able to offer these affordable, yet high quality cottage apartments, and I’d encourage anyone who’s interested to get in touch to find out if they’re eligible, as demand is high.”
