A £22 million development is under way at Kirkhill to help meet homebuyer demand for more space.
Tulloch Homes sales and marketing director Jo McLaren said the development, seven miles from Inverness, reflected the changing aspirations of homeowners who want an “in the country” ambience while not too far from the city.
She said: “Since the pandemic, people are still looking for extra space around their homes, which we’re able to provide at Kirkhill.
“Rural living has not been so popular for decades, and Kirkhill will cater for the market which doesn’t want to live too close to Inverness, but wants all the city services to be within easy reach.
“Over two-thirds of the 70 homes will be bungalows, which is an innovative feature. There will be spectacular views across the firth from the first phase of two and three-bedroom bungalows for which we’ll be accepting sales in June.
“The first occupations will be in late autumn and our significant investment will be a key asset to the amenity and sustainability of the local community.”
The development, called Highland View, will eventually include 52 bungalows and will range from two-bedroom terraced homes from £198,000 to four-bedroom detached properties. Tulloch’s previous Kirkhill project, Black Isle View, sold out eight years ago.
Meanwhile, the first 11 homes have already been snapped up in Tulloch’s 25-home development at Glascairn Meadows in Culbokie.
“It’s fantastic to have 40 per cent of the development already sold ahead of first occupations in July,” Ms McLaren added.
