Record sales success for CALA Homes' Ratho development.
CALA Homes has hit the mark with nearly £13 million worth of sales at its canalside development - The Mooring, Ratho. The record sales were generated in only 12 months, from January 2011 - January 2012.
The demand for high quality family homes in the west of Edinburgh have fuelled success at The Mooring, with 32 homes sold in the past year alone. Only four of the current phase of homes remain available.
Sarah Stanger, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes (East) said: "Our development at The Mooring, Ratho has generated sales at an incredible rate. To sell 32 homes in only 12 months is testament to the stunning location and high quality living on offer at The Mooring.
"Buyers have also been tempted by the leading schools on its doorstep, including Ratho Primary and Balerno High School. As with all CALA developments, the attention to detail is impeccable, with high quality fittings and finishes throughout."
The development has attracted a wide-range of buyers, including Sheila Graham - a four-time happy CALA home buyer who recently purchased a three bedroom home at The Mooring. After two winters snowed in at her Kelso home, Sheila decided it was time for a move back to Edinburgh, to be near her friends and family who are spread across the central belt and Fife.
When she first visited The Mooring, Ratho, she was captivated by the feeling of being in the country, yet so close to major roads, the airport and the shops of Edinburgh.
Sheila explains: "I was ready to downsize from the four bedroom home in Kelso, and at first considered apartments but decided I didn't want an open-plan home. I wanted three bedrooms so that one could be an office, as I work from home, and definitely two bathrooms. CALA's development at Ratho ticked every box."
As a four-time CALA buyer, Sheila knows that a CALA home comes with excellent customer service as well as impeccable quality of design and finishes. "When dealing with CALA's sales team, I felt as though they genuinely believed in the quality of the homes they were selling, and their flexible approach makes buying as stress-free as possible.
"As an incentive, I benefited from stamp-duty paid, carpets and garden turf, all of which made the buying process even more positive. My new home at The Mooring was exactly what I was looking for, at the perfect time. I couldn't be happier with this move."
Two showhomes are available to view at The Mooring - a Bryce and a Cleland housetype. Both are detached four bedroom family homes, each with two en-suites, a family bathroom and generous kitchen, dining and living areas. The Cleland further benefits from stunning French doors leading from the kitchen to a decking area and rear garden.
The showhome interiors were meticulously created by Carol Yates at Amabile Design, inspired by modern family living with a luxurious twist.
On completion, the west Edinburgh development will boast a stunning canal basin as its centrepiece and a mix of detached, terraced and townhouse properties. Prices start at £270,000.
The Mooring, Ratho sales office and showhomes are open seven days, from 11:30am - 5:30pm.
