Work begins on ‘age exclusive’ housing development in Edinburgh

WORK is underway on Cruden Homes’ latest ‘age exclusive’ residential development in Edinburgh.

48 new homes for homeowners aged 55 years and over are being constructed in Barnton, just a few miles from the city centre. The Barnton Avenue West project will include a mix of accommodation styles, including three-bed semi-detached houses and a range of apartments. On-site facilities will include a club lounge and guest suite, along with private parking spaces and communal electrical vehicle charging points.

Cruden Homes recently received a NextGeneration Project In Design Gold award for this development. All properties incorporate green energy measures including a ground source heat pump solution. 

The site will also provide landscaped grounds when complete, including raised planters, growing spaces, a tool store, seating, walkways and a barbecue area. Dedicated cycle storage will also be available.

The homes are due to launch for sale in summer 2023, with the first phase of completion expected in early 2024.

Fraser Lynes, MD of Cruden Homes, said, “With demand for age exclusive developments growing exponentially, we’re excited to bring these high-quality new homes to Barnton. To receive the NextGeneration In Design Gold Award for this development has been a fantastic achievement and solidifies our team’s commitment to going above and beyond the industry’s standards for sustainability.

“This superb new development includes a number of additional hotel style amenities that support our vision to create a thriving, social community that does not compromise on exclusivity or style.”
