Hi Tech Springfield Homes at Corstorphine

28 March 2013

This collection of luxury three and four-bedroom townhouses, in the highly sought after Corstorphine area of Edinburgh, start from under £400,000; and it is this excellent value that makes them so unique.

The new homes will all feature ‘smart-wiring’. It is this piece of technology which will enable homeowners to control heating and lighting in various rooms around their house from anywhere in the world with an internet connection, via the iPad which is provided with each property.

Springfield Properties are building the homes for the future using innovative IP (internet protocol) based technology. This integrates with the home’s wi-fi via specific apps. These enable the owner to programme the heating system in certain areas of the house to remember the preferred timings and temperatures for that room. The lighting app features a holiday simulation mode, whereby it ‘remembers’ which lights were turned on and at which time over a designated period, then mimics this activity when the homeowner is away on holiday.

All 11 of the exclusive Corstorphine Mews homes will also be ‘smart wired’ for other technologies to enable homeowners to personalise their home. This could include a SONAR multi-room audio system to enable music to be played via the iPad wirelessly in every room, or for different music to be played in each room via discreet in ceiling speakers. Alternatively, a homeowner may choose to make use of the pre-wiring for an integrated home theatre system, which features speakers built directly in the ceilings. They might choose to install an integrated waterproof TV into the bathroom for the ultimate in luxury entertainment.

Situated on Gylemuir Road, close to Gyle Park, Edinburgh architectural designer Susan Stephen Architects has been responsible for the modern style of the three storey house. Each townhouse offers over 1,500sq ft of floor space and features a private mono-block driveway and French doors that lead onto decking and a private enclosed lawn garden. Each home features a state-of-the-art alarm system, which is capable of calling the homeowners mobile phone in the event of an incident, in case it is a false alarm, before notifying the authorities.

Tricia Malek, sales director at Springfield added: “Springfield is excited to be opening our Corstorphine Mews development for sale. It is the first of our homes in Edinburgh to have integrated ‘smart-wiring’. We felt that the addition of this state-of-the-art technology fitted perfectly with the fresh and modern style of these homes.

“As with all Springfield developments, our customers are able to make a huge number of choices to personalise their home to better reflect the way they live their lives. This is a service, that from experience at our previous developments, we know is very popular as homeowners seek to create their own bespoke home.”

As standard, each home features contemporary oak internal doors with chrome ironmongery, tiles, white ware and kitchen from Porcelanosa, under floor heating and a cherry blossom tree in the front garden. Each homeowner works with a designer from Porcelanosa to select from the full retail range of finishes and appliances at the showroom to fit with their personal kitchen layout.
