Benefits of Bungalows

Roseisle plot 155 KG

Offering residents greater privacy and garden space in comparison to apartment living, bungalow homes are perfect for those taking their first step on the property ladder or looking to downsize. 

However, despite their benefits, the number of new build single storey homes coming to the market has been in sharp decline in recent years in the face of rising land costs. To meet growing demand from buyers, Springfield Properties has a selection of high quality single-storey homes available at three of its sought after new developments across Scotland.

The Logie, Inchgower, Buckie

The two-bedroom detached Logie bungalow features a large open plan kitchen dining area, complete with all kitchen appliances,  and patio doors leading to a generous, turfed garden. 

Each spacious double bedroom features fitted wardrobes, allowing buyers to tailor the space to their individual needs and preferences. The main bathroom, fitted with a shower over the bath, is completed with contemporary finishes, including a heated towel rail, a wall mirror and full height tiling around the bath.  

Springfield’s Inchgower development is situated in a historic rural setting and enjoys a number of good transport links, making it perfect for those commuting to Aberdeen and Elgin or those looking to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of city life, without being too far away. Local schools are also a convenient five-minute drive away. 

The Croy, Meadow Lea, Nairn,

The three-bedroom Croy bungalow is situated in Springfield Properties’ Meadow Lea development which boasts beautiful views of the North Coast. 

The property features a glorious sunroom, perfect for relaxing and admiring the scenic surroundings. A spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living space with plenty of natural light makes this home feel open and airy, ideal for entertaining family and friends. Double French doors open out onto the turfed back garden, giving the home an outside-in feel. Featuring vast storage space, each bedroom is fitted with built-in wardrobes with stylish sliding doors and bedroom one also benefits from an en-suite bathroom. 

Less than a 30-minute drive to Inverness and with easy access to public transport links, Nairn is a prime location for buyers. With an abundance of local amenities nearby, including two Championship golf courses and a leisure centre, Meadow Lea is a perfect base. With just three Croy bungalow properties remaining for sale, prospective homeowners will need to move quickly. 

The Roseisle, Kinloch Gardens, Blairgowrie

Springfield Properties’ Kinloch Gardens development is perfect for those who enjoy the Scottish Highlands. Situated along the 64-mile Cateran trail that offers fantastic views of Perthshire’s countryside, the development is also a short walk from the banks of the River Ericht, where residents can enjoy scenic strolls and peaceful picnic spots.

The two bedroom semi-detached Roseisle bungalow is a modern home with a large kitchen and dining area, and features patio doors leading out to a turfed garden. All appliances are included and integrated within units for a sleek, contemporary look. 

This bungalow is available with an optional sunroom, which offers a little haven where owners can enjoy the stunning rural surroundings. Within walking distance to independent cafes and restaurants, this is a perfect home for young professionals or for those looking to downsize. There are three Roseisle properties left to purchase.

Joyce Hadden, Sales Manager at Springfield Properties, said: “Bungalows have always been very popular in Scotland. They exude an airy and spacious feel, bring in a lot of natural light and tend to offer greater privacy from surrounding properties, as well as superior outdoor space to apartments. While they are often associated with older buyers looking to downsize and enjoy a gentler pace of life, they are also very appealing to younger couples looking to enter the property market and smaller families in search of a new home. 

“Despite their popularity, new build bungalows are a rarity in today’s market due to high land costs and we are very excited to offer a collection of single-storey homes across our developments. Each of our developments in Buckie, Nairn and Blairgowrie offer a real community feel, easily commutable to some of the country’s major cities, and a lovely place to call home.”
