Custom built eco-homes offer an escape to the countryside within new £60m development

An eco-home custom built to your needs, set in the idyllic countryside next to a castle and Colin Montgomery golf course may seem like it is good to be true, however new plots launched at Rowallan Castle Estate offers both the dream home and the perfect setting.

The first phase of the £60m luxury development at Rowallan Castle Estate has just been released with a total of 38 plots available for custom build homes in the joint venture between Cherish Homes and Rowallan Castle. Completed house prices are expected to be in the range of £400k to over £1m depending upon specifications and size.

This will allow residents to design their new house to fit their lifestyle and the needs of their family, with the support of custom housebuilder Cherish Homes. Whether it is a home office by day, media room by night, a larger kitchen, double height space, or a certain bathroom style they have been dreaming of for years, residents will work with the architect to design a home perfect for them.

The first 25 plots have been released in the Stable Field part of the development with a starting price of £120,000 for the plot itself. Surrounded by rolling hills and fields of bluebells, the plots range in size from 0.05 to 0.2 acres providing space to accommodate a custom designed four-bed detached home of between 140sqm (1500 sq ft) and 325 sqm (3,500 sq ft). All in costs for the finished high quality eco homes on Stable Field, including the plot, are expected to be between £400,000 and £700,000 depending upon size and fit-out specification.

The aptly named Fair View part of the development, mostly with frontline golf fairway positions, is also now released and taking reservations. It runs parallel to the first fairway offering unrivalled views of the surrounding countryside. A further limited number of 13 plots are available with plot prices starting from £275,000 for between 0.2 and 0.56 acres of land. With enough space to accommodate houses in excess of 500 sqm (5,350 sq ft), all in costs of completed houses on Fair View plots are anticipated to be between £700,000 and over £1m when completed.

Set in the grounds of the 12th century Rowallan Castle Estate, the rural homes are surrounded by spectacular Scottish scenery and wildlife, offering a truly idyllic lifestyle just a 30-minute drive from Glasgow Airport and the city centre. If that wasn’t enough, residents also receive a year’s golf membership at the 19-hole championship golf course, designed by Ryder Cup winning Captain Colin Montgomerie, which features a stunning Clubhouse and the much-acclaimed Glasshouse Restaurant.

The contemporary energy efficient builds are triple glazed, highly insulated, and utilise mechanical heat recovery and ventilation systems to deliver 100% airtightness. Achieving up to a ‘B’ Energy Rating, the eco homes are future proof and offer a significant saving on energy bills. Ground source or air-source heat pumps are often chosen to substantially reduce energy costs by transferring heat into the home from the air or the ground, even in cold weather.

The homes are a further addition to Rowallan Castle, the family estate of Niall Campbell who has extensive experience in property development.

Campbell said: “Rowallan Castle Estate is an idyllic location for family living and this has become more important than ever as we are spending so much of our time at home.

“We are finding that people are looking for more space and specific requirements to suit their needs, but find it near impossible to find the right home in the ideal location. A custom-built house is the perfect solution and allows you to tick all of those boxes that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to achieve from a standard home. We have a fantastic sanctuary here in the estate and with the choice of a luxury home office we can make working from home a joy, not a chore!

“We are thrilled to be launching this first phase of plots with Cherish Homes to give residents that freedom to decide what their dream home looks like, providing expert support and advice along the way.

“The future is moving towards more remote working and living out with the major cities to enjoy scenic surroundings and nature as part of the everyday lifestyle. That is exactly what Rowallan Castle Estate offers and we are looking forward to making that a reality for those ready to take the next step and secure a plot.”
