Imagine moving into a stunning, contemporary home with no need to buy new furniture, carpets, light fittings or soft furnishings.
And with summer almost here, imagine too having your own terrace or balcony where you can dine al fresco before taking a walk through beautiful, mature grounds that you don’t need to lift a finger to maintain.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
That’s exactly what CHAP Homes is offering.
The developer is selling its show apartment at Woodland Grove, Milltimber with the full interior design package for £349,500.
This popular development comprises modern two-bedroom homes in the prestigious Aberdeen suburb, exclusively for buyers aged 55 and over.
Featuring contemporary interior design by Aberdeen-based Norma Dey, owner of Interiors @ Home, the spacious 101m2 property, with bright west-facing lounge, offers the ideal combination of comfort and elegance in a great location, as well as easy access to world-class facilities.
The property is beautifully decorated throughout, featuring neutral classic furniture — all included in the sale — complemented by a striking, textured blue colour palette: from midnight blue and gold accents in the lounge, to teal in the kitchen.
Earlier this month, around 50 people, including residents and potential buyers, gathered in the apartment for CHAP Homes’ summer social event: proving that Woodland Grove is an excellent choice for downsizing without compromising on space for entertaining.
Plus, with just the show apartment and one more property remaining at Woodland Grove — and limited-time incentives, as well as a help to move package available — now’s a great time to buy.
The tailored ‘help to move’ package can include a free home survey, a pre-move decluttering service, or help with removal costs, while limited-time incentives include cashback and paid land and buildings transaction tax (LBTT).
Each property is thoughtfully created, with superior finishes, light and spacious lounges, contemporary bathrooms, and designer-fitted kitchens featuring high-quality appliances and solid quartz worktops.
The remaining properties have either a substantial private balcony or terrace, as well as lift access to all levels.
There is allocated residents’ parking; ample visitor spaces; and all homes have a door entry security video system. Plus, a concierge is always on hand.
Outside, the development’s fully-maintained grounds prove consistently popular with residents and are a hub for communal events.
The energy efficiency benefits that come with a new build property also prove popular with Woodland Grove homeowners.
Built using modern materials, each of the remaining two-bedroom apartments in the Crathes Building has an EPC B band rating with estimated yearly heating, light and hot water costs of around £400: potentially saving hundreds of pounds on energy bills, compared with the average Scottish D-rated property.
In fact, the latest figures from April this year from regulator Ofgem show the average available tariff is around £1,138 a year, based on average of dual fuel, direct debit and available paper tariffs from the six large suppliers; with the cheapest being around £788 based on typical consumption and dual fuel average of available paperless tariffs paid by direct debit.
Current council tax and Scottish Water payments for the remaining band E Woodland Grove apartments are £2,199.69 a year: representing a saving for those moving from F or G band properties in the city of around £490 to just over £1,000.
Christine MacDonald, Woodland Grove’s sales advisor, said: “Interestingly, many of the homeowners here are quick to point out just how much of a difference they notice in their utility bills: choosing instead to spend what they’ve saved on themselves; their hobbies; or even using it towards a holiday.
“And that’s easy too because Woodland Grove is close to excellent road, rail, sea and air links for domestic and international travel.”
Plus, the soon-to-be-completed Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) – located minutes away from the development – set to include reduced congestion, shorter journey times, improved road safety, and better public transport links.
Meanwhile, Westhill’s internationally-renowned subsea centre of excellence is only a 15-minute journey by car; with Aberdeen’s city centre, as well as the world-class Prime Four business park near Kingswells, within easy reach too.
There are excellent sporting and leisure facilities close by, including Peterculter and Deeside Golf Clubs, as well as Kippie Lodge sports and country club, and the David Lloyd Club, with nearby spas including the Marcliffe Hotel.
