Walker Group has released a new contemporary two bedroom home at its Greenfields development in Tranent.

The Arosa is modelled on the upside-down or inverted house type common in Scandinavia, where the main living space is on the first floor and the sleeping quarters are on the ground floor.

Named after a Swiss ski resort, the Arosa is designed to maximise the views from the windows and features the lounge on the first floor along with a bedroom, kitchen and shower room.

On the ground floor is a bedroom, bathroom, utility room and garage. Prices for this modern home start from £150,000.

Sandy Casey, Sales and Marketing Director for Walker Group, said: “This is a great home for first time buyers and down-sizers and makes terrific use of the space. Having the bedrooms on separate floors gives home owners added privacy if they have people to stay. The layout is very flexible, in tune with the needs of today’s buyers, and either bedroom would serve equally well as a dining room or study.”

A selection of two, three and four bedroom homes are being built in the second phase of this popular development, which offers all the benefits of rural living but is within easy commuting access to the capital.

These include the newly released Aspen, which was one of the best-selling designs in the previous phase, and offers walk through space on the ground floor, with both the living room and dining room featuring bright, airy French doors.

The dining kitchen is modern and is fitted to a quality finish. Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite, a large family bathroom, and plenty of wardrobe space. Also available is another three bedroom property, the Banff, which has a similar layout.

Both the Aspen and Banff housetypes are currently available for reservation now and are priced at £180,000. The interiors of these stylish, contemporary new homes feature high specification kitchens and bathrooms along with energy efficient heating and lighting.

For larger families is the four bedroom Stowe which has an impressive open plan living/dining room, a large kitchen and study on the ground floor and four bedrooms upstairs with the master featuring an ensuite, along with a family bathroom.

One of the most ancient towns in East Lothian, Tranent is situated between Haddington and Musselburgh. The area offers a wide variety of leisure and entertainment facilities. Golf enthusiasts will be at home in the area with over 19 courses in close proximity.

At Greenfields, affordable family living combines with unique house design. Properties enjoy the convenience of being close to excellent schools and the popular Fort Kinnaird shopping centre.

Just 11 miles east of Edinburgh, the town is also ideal for commuters, with excellent road and transport links into the city.
