Townhouse trend sees city buyers push onwards & upwards
July 28 2020
In recent months Barratt Developments has reported a surge in interest from buyers keen to escape the confines of their city flats in favour of more rural and spacious accommodation with a dedicated office space.
The housebuilder reports strong interest in areas such as Johnstone, Gilmerton and Prestonpans where reduced land prices and a vertical focus have been combined to provide flexible living space over three floors.
A spokesperson for the builder wrote: "The majority of people who are buying up these townhouses live in city flats and have always wanted a townhouse, but couldn’t stretch to inner-city prices, but also because they want to live in a more rural environment.
"Whether that has anything to do with lockdown we are unsure, but believe anecdotally that it has had a significant impact on the way buyers are thinking about where they live and how they live."
This follows similar developments by CALA which has ushered in elevated living at Erskine.
