Custom Build Homes achieves planning permission for customisable homes near Shawfair
Custom Build Homes (CBH) has achieved planning permission for 10 customisable homes within the new town of Shawfair.
The new homeowners will have the opportunity to customise their home to suit their lifestyle now and in the future. The three, four and five-bedroom designs benefit from large windows, wide balconies and south-facing gardens around an attractive courtyard.
CBH said customisable homes will bring much-needed diversity to the area of Shawfair, which to date has been dominated by larger new build providers.
With a variety of unique potential layouts on each floor, the homes can be configured in 27 different ways depending on the needs of individual households. Each home will be constructed on behalf of purchasers and delivered as a “blank canvas” for interior design. CBH will then support them to be “self-finished” or provide a house fitting service with the support of local Edinburgh designer Victoria Hopkins.
The scheme is supported by BuildStore Mortgage Services for access to specialist custom build mortgage products and advice.
Tom Connor, founder at Custom Build Homes, said: “The prospect of custom housebuilding making its debut in Edinburgh excites me, particularly adjacent to the Shawfair development which has pushed the boundaries of what a new town should be. We’re on a mission to enable anyone who wishes to live in a home which they have designed or customised possible and affordable. For this to happen in my home city for the first time will be a great thing.”
