Introducing Craigpark Court

Plot 2 13-MAB-S-01 model Plot 2 141003 (2)

Sally Burrell, Managing Director of locally renowned housebuilders Murray and Burrell, personally introduces you to a collection of beautiful bespoke homes and a level of freedom that is simply not available on most new builds.

Known for our superior quality of finish and meticulous attention to detail, we are proud to present Craigpark Court to you.

This small up market development consists of just nine Murray and Burrell homes all designed for spacious open plan family living and provides a rare opportunity to buy a beautiful, eco-friendly bungalow or family home in the heart of Galashiels.

We have used a mix of cool cedar cladding with a contrasting smooth cream render to create a contemporary and sharp look.  Complemented with the timeless appearance of a reconstituted stone base course, grey slate roof and timber clad facias and soffits, these homes exude beauty.  Our quality ethos is matched by our green credentials too, with each home featuring the latest eco technology including heat recovery system, Wi Fi controlled heating systems and solar panels.

A variety of internal design options are also available, allowing a level of freedom not applicable as standard on most new builds. We also offer you the flexibility to choose the layout of your kitchen as well as the freedom to choose from a range of industry leading fixtures, fittings, appliances, finishes and colour schemes, as standard – all the finishing touches that turn a house into an individual home.

The development itself offers a peaceful location in the lovely Old Town of Galashiels, yet just a 5 minute walk to town centre shops, restaurants and entertainment. And for those who work in the city, the new train station means a journey time of just 50 minutes to Edinburgh’s Waverley station.

The whole family will feel right at home in this modern, eco-friendly four-bedroom house.  Plots 8 and 9 have been designed to offer the utmost space and convenience for your family.  It features 4 bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, fully fitted kitchen, living/dining area with French windows opening out onto a small patio and secluded garden area.  Family bathroom with storage and the master bedroom benefits from an en suite. In addition, there is off street parking and plenty of storage under the stairs. A design and specification that are first class and a build quality that is second to none.

Every fixture, fitting and finish at Craigpark Court has been selected with great care and attention to detail, ensuring quality and superb craftsmanship throughout.

We know that a new home provides you with a unique opportunity – a fresh, blank canvas on which to create your ideal lifestyle.  So we’ve selected both traditional and modern materials, fittings and fixtures for you to choose from, making the process an absolute pleasure. We are here to make your dream home come true, so whatever your requirements are, we can provide optional extras such as underfloor heating, additional solar panels, flooring and conservatories. Whatever it may be, we can make it happen.
