New residential opportunity launched close to vibrant planned town centre

October 9, 2023

The latest residential opportunity as part of the ongoing development of Blindwells, has been launched by the Edinburgh office of international property consultancy, JLL.

Following the recent news that plans to develop a vibrant mixed-use town centre at the heart of Blindwells have been submitted for approval, another two plots of land with indicative capacity, and permission in principle, for 230 residential units have been brought to market by JLL.

Plots 6A and 6B at the ambitious development by Hargreaves Land make up 16.67 acres close to the proposed town centre, which is on course to see a pedestrian and eco-friendly area established, comprising shops, offices, restaurants and a supermarket, with business, wellbeing and community space overlooking a newly created loch.

The fully-serviced site is suitable either for private sale or single-family rental housing, and has outstanding views over the Firth of Forth, as well as having immediate access on to the A1 with good nearby rail connections.

Gabriel Fella, development surveyor at Hargreaves Land, said: “Blindwells is evolving quickly and it’s no wonder. Located only 14 minutes away from Edinburgh by rail, the new town is already home to hundreds of people keen to enjoy an enviable lifestyle surrounded by greenery and natural habitats that can thrive amid amenities for work, rest and play.

“With previous sales having been facilitated to housebuilders including Bellway, Persimmon, Ogilvie and Avant, we have no doubt that the potential for these plots won’t be unrealised for long.”

Ewan Scott, senior surveyor at JLL added: “Blindwells is developing at pace, so we’re excited to once again be partnering with the team at Hargreaves Land to find the right housebuilder to transform yet more plots that will provide an unequalled quality of life to families choosing to be part of this community.

“We look forward to hearing from all interested parties in the coming weeks and to working with the successful organisation to further realise the vision for this important new area of East Lothian.”
