Welcome new phase opens at Stirling bridge

Buyers who missed out on the quick selling first phase at Cruden Homes’ Stirling Bridge development at Raploch in Stirling, have another bite at the cherry with the opening of the second phase.

Situated off Raploch Road, just minutes from the heart of Stirling, the new phase offers a selection of forty-two properties for sale in a mix of two and three-bedroom terraced and semi-detached houses and two-bedroom apartments, many with striking views to Stirling Castle which stands majestically overlooking the development.

As a mark of just how popular phase one at Stirling Bridge was with buyers, almost all eighty-three properties sold out way ahead of schedule.

Attractive pricing coupled with striking modern building design and a real sense of community, proved an irresistible combination on the first phase and it’s expected phase two will be just as popular for the same reasons.

Prices in the first release on phase two range from £125,000 for a two-bedroom terraced house to £135,000 for a three-bedroom semi-detached house. A variety of two-bedroom apartments will be released in the coming months with prices anticipated to start from just £105,000.

In addition, the Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme is also available on all properties at Stirling Bridge. This hugely popular incentive can assist prospective purchasers, whether they are first time buyers or existing homeowners, to secure a new property without the requirement for a huge deposit.

In essence, the Scottish Government provides an interest free equity loan of up to twenty per cent of the purchase price of a new home (which can be repaid at any time), so the buyer only needs to raise a five per cent deposit to secure a seventy-five per cent mortgage from a participating lender. This means buyers can obtain an excellent interest rate and still own their property outright.

Buyers should also be impressed with the interior specification on all properties on the new phase at Stirling Bridge. Included as standard are gas central heating and double glazing. All kitchens are fully fitted and come with integrated stainless steel oven, hob and hood. Master bedrooms are complete with mirrored wardrobes, while en-suites and bathrooms feature contemporary, slick white sanitary ware complemented with a choice of designer wall tiles from Porcelanosa.

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing manager at Cruden Homes (East) Ltd, said,

“Our Stirling Bridge development at Raploch is undoubtedly one of the big success stories in the Scottish property scene in the last few years and Cruden Homes is proud to have been involved from the outset in providing much-needed quality housing for sale in this hugely popular area of Stirling.”

The ongoing £120m transformation of Raploch itself is commendable. Over just a few years, a new, modern community has been created offering stylish new homes, a health campus, two primary schools, a family centre/out of school care nursery, a community campus, sports facilities and the reclaiming and opening of the riverside walkway area.

Residents also benefit from being only minutes from Stirling’s dynamic town centre, which blends a rich historic past with all the requirements of modern day living, from leading high street retailers to eateries, restaurants, bars and entertainment/leisure facilities, while a Sainsbury’s superstore is also on the development’s doorstep.

By being minutes from the M9, Stirling Bridge also has that all important commutability factor, making Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow highly accessible, and further adding to the appeal of the development.
