Developing Ailsa View, Stevenston

Merchant Homes Ailsa View- Stevenson, North Ayrshire

Located in Stevenson, North Ayrshire, Ailsa View is a new housing development from leading property developer Merchant Homes.

The site includes a stunning mix of two and three-bedroom properties all situated within a desirable area of Scotland.

At present, work is currently underway on the development which comprises 20 two and three-bedroom semi-detached properties.

Merchant Homes Commercial Director, John Jack, said:

“Ailsa View is Merchant Homes’ first development within the Ayrshire area and is the flagship development for the launch of two of our new house types – the Glen – a 2 bed semi – and the Blair – a 3 bedroom semi. Both the Glen and the Blair have the benefit of state of the art downstairs shower rooms as well as family bathroom on the upper floor.”

Work began on the £2.5 million development in February 2012 and is currently scheduled to reach completion in late summer 2013. At present four units and a stunning show house have been completed, with two of the housing units already finding buyers.

The houses on the development are being built from a timber frame construction, with UPVC double glazed windows and concrete Russell roof tiles. Once complete, the exterior finish of each building will incorporate a mix of render and facing brick, whilst landscaping will include both front and back gardens and associated paving.

John added:

“All of the units are being built to 2010/2011 Building Regulations so key factors we are aiming towards include high levels of air tightness and sound proofing as well as large thermal properties. In terms of the construction programme these elements add approximately a week longer to the build but the benefits to the end user completely outweigh any extra time required.

“We have a number of developments in the Lanarkshire and Glasgow areas and are excited at the launch of Ailsa View as it is our first development within the Ayrshire belt.

“The house types launched at Ailsa View will form part of a portfolio of four house types we will be building on our next programmed development, The Willows on the south side of Glasgow. This development will provide around 70 units with a mixture of two and three bedroom semi and detached properties.”
