Independent home builder launches new family-focused house type

Craig Fairfoull Head of Sales and Marketing at Dundas Estates

A 30-year established award-winning property developer has announced plans to launch a brand new house type, purpose-built for family living.

Livingston-based Dundas Estates will begin constructing the four-bedroom detached Gillespie home at selected developments across Scotland.

Gillespie will boast an integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher, with more space and higher specifications than similar house types offered by Dundas.

Spanning 1411sq ft, with a single internal garage and large kitchen dining area, the house type is designed with families in mind with additional features such as a separate utility room and patio doors leading onto a spacious garden area.

The announcement comes after the firm received a spate of enquiries from potential buyers looking for larger detached homes than ever before. A showhome is anticipated to be completed by spring 2022.

Head of Sales and Marketing at Dundas Estates, Craig Fairfoull, said: “In response to our recent enquiries and amidst our exciting rebrand we felt this was the perfect opportunity to announce the launch of the Gillespie.

“As one of only a handful of independent developers operating in Scotland, we’re looking to rapidly adapt and modernise our business to enhance our clients’ experiences. One of the ways we are doing this is by introducing the Gillespie to meet consumer demand.

“We have recognised that potential buyers are looking for more from their property developers; to provide homes that are good to move straight into from purchase.

“With that in mind, we have developed a house type that is aimed at meeting the needs and desires of many potential buyers.”

The home will also feature high-end internet connectivity through the developer’s relationship with broadband specialist, Hyperoptic.

The Gillespie is set to feature as a showhome at Dundas Estates’ brand new development, Gilbertfield Woods in Cambuslang, South Lanarkshire, as well as its flagship development Uphall Station Village in West Lothian.

Dundas Estates is a multi-award winning, friendly and independent home builder which creates homes that make people feel great. It is proudly independent and Scottish-owned, with a track record of building well-designed homes.

The developer is focused on building welcoming, integrated communities, and making the journey of buying a home more straightforward, inspiring and fun.
