Juniper Residential have launched two new developments in Perthshire that redefine retirement living for the over 55s.
The stylish properties – Muirwood Gardens, Kinross and Earlsgate, Scone – are designed with style and quality front of mind.
Juniper Residential is part of the multi-award winning Cruden Group, building quality new homes for over 75 years.
As one of Scotland’s largest independently owned construction companies Juniper Residential are known for building niche and bespoke properties.
There is a lack of specific age exclusive housing providers in Scotland so Juniper Residential began to explore this concept and carried out research amongst the over 55s to bring something new to the market.
Their vision is to provide beautiful properties that feel quite different to what you might associate with retirement living.
The Earlsgate development, located in Scone at the site of the former Wheel Inn, will comprise a mix of 51 one and two-bedroom apartments, with superb facilities for socialising, including three communal lounges, landscaped gardens and a hotel-style guest suite for visitors.
In Kinross, Muirwood Gardens is a 41-unit development on the site of the former Windlestrae Hotel that will comprise a mix of 33 stylish bungalows and villas, plus 8 cottage flats.
The development also features a communal resident’s club lounge and luxury guest suite for visitors.
Both developments have easy access to transport links and local amenities and feature ample private parking. Residents at Scone can also benefit from communal electric vehicle charging points.
Peace of mind and security have been carefully considered and include secure video entry systems to apartments, and the services of a dedicated visiting development manager. Scone also benefits from CCTV coverage across both apartment blocks.
All floor coverings are included, such as quality carpets, ceramic tiles and vinyl. Buyers also have a choice of kitchens and all integrated appliances are included.
There will be 240,000 more people of pensionable age in Scotland over the next 25 years – an increase in 23 per cent from 2018.
Juniper Residential believe there is a lack of suitable retirement housing generally in Scotland, and specifically in Scone and Kinross, which these new properties will address.
The bathrooms come with stylish white sanitary ware, including comfort height WCs and backlit sockets, if required, future proofing each home.
Prices are likely to start from in the region of £160,00 for a one bedroom apartment at Scone and around £250,000 for a 2 bedroom semi-detached bungalow in Kinross.
Construction is well underway at both sites and the first new homes anticipated to be complete by Summer 2021.
