CALA Homes’ popular Balgownie Gate development in Bridge of Don has now sold out following the sale of its final property; a spacious five-bedroom detached Crichton.

The development, situated just off Balgownie Road, comprises 26 three, four and five-bedroom homes from CALA’s Signature Collection and sold out in just over a year from its launch in November 2014.

Fraser Carr, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (North), said: “Our Balgownie Gate development has proved very popular with homebuyers searching for a property in the sought-after locale of Bridge of Don.

“Despite the current challenging economy, sales at the development have been very strong particularly in the past few months with the last six properties at Balgownie Gate selling within a two month period.”

Homebuyers searching for their dream home in the suburb can still purchase a luxury CALA property at the housebuilders’ development located on the north east periphery of Bridge of Don; The Links at Dubford.

The development has launched a second show stopping Dewar show home which joins the stunning five-bedroom Lowther.

The Links at Dubford offers the epitome of luxury living in the ideal locale with a collection of beautifully appointed four and five-bedroom detached homes from CALA Homes’ Signature Collection.

Fraser added: “Homebuyers needn’t be too disappointed at the sell-out of Balgownie Gate as our second development in the area is just as spectacular.

“The Links at Dubford is set amidst rolling hills with stunning views towards the North Sea. Each home embodies elegant yet practical living, with a contemporary layout which features the exceptional standard of finish and luxury design and specification that is synonymous with CALA.”

Selected plots at The Links at Dubford are available with the CALA Part Exchange service. For Part Exchange, CALA will obtain two independent valuations based on achieving a sale in a 4-6 week period, and will be considered subject to CALA’s purchasing criteria and terms and conditions.
