New homes set to go on the market at Knockomie Braes

The leading builder of private and affordable homes will open sales to accommodate pent up demand which has seen more than 330 people sign up to receive the latest information about the development. Set in a vibrant community just off Mannachie Road,  Knockomie Braes boasts a range of stylish two bedroom cottage flats and three and four bedroom homes, including bungalows, 

The local spike in interest mirrors a wider trend for Springfield Properties, which has noted significant pent-up demand across its development portfolio. In the first week following re-opening after lockdown, the housebuilder received its highest number of reservations ever recorded in a one-week period. 

Knockomie Braes benefits from open green areas and a mix of spacious homes, all of which are complete with a private, turfed garden. These features have become increasingly popular with prospective homebuyers in the wake of the country-wide lockdown. 

Recent research into the property market suggest that aspirations are shifting, with larger homes, a garden and a spare room, which could double as a home office, becoming much more appealing. Of those surveyed by Rightmove, 63% said a bigger garden or access to one, was their top consideration when purchasing a house. 

Knockomie Braes, located at the South end of Forres, is a growing community on the edge of open countryside. Prospective buyers will enjoy fantastic views of stunning Scottish landscape, while remaining within easy reach of all the town’s facilities. The development is also just minutes from the Moray coast, which boasts miles of scenic beaches and a number of golf courses. 

Customers buying these homes may also benefit from Government funded schemes such as the First home Fund and Help to Buy. 

Springfield Properties Sales Manager, Joyce Hadden, said: “Since emerging from lockdown, we have seen wide-spread demand across the housing market, especially for developments like Knockomie Braes. 

“Since re-opening and speaking with potential customers, it is clear that attitudes are shifting. People want more space within their home, greater access to parks or green space and a garden has never been so important. 

“Knockomie Braes offers everything buyers are looking for. The development is situated in a town with a great community and enjoys access to some of the country’s most serene coast lines. 

“We’re really excited about releasing these homes for sale this weekend, and to have had such an overwhelming level of interest already is fantastic. The homes are stylish, have great gardens, are in a semi-rural spot and are complete with high Springfield specification and a wide range of choices.”
