Developers behind the St Andrews West project have welcomed the first residents to their new homes.

Currently on site building Phase One, and with a start on Phase Two imminent, HeadonS1 St Andrews is a joint venture between family-run developer teams Headon from St Andrews, and Edinburgh-based S1 Developments. Both firms have an established reputation for delivering sustainable new homes with superior finishing.

Design by renowned architects LBA, the properties currently being constructed at St Andrews West offer a contemporary interpretation of classic East Neuk architecture.

Signature features of these exceptional homes, which range from one to four bedrooms, are high ceilings, extra large bright windows, generous connected living spaces, and links to the outdoors. All housetypes are complete with a high specification as standard.

In addition, the properties are highly energy efficient, featuring air source heat pumps, and underfloor heating, together with superior levels of insulation to offer the occupants more affordable running costs. Those wishing to lower their carbon footprint further by running an electric vehicle, will find that pre wiring for EV chargers is another standard feature in many of the homes.

Furthermore, a shared electric car scheme is about to become operational within the development. In addition, an electric bike scheme is proposed which will hopefully be part of a wider scheme for the town. The new homeowners will be encouraged to avail of these facilities and embrace the various initiatives to reduce C02 omissions.

Another innovative feature to be found at St Andrews West is its central green corridor which will run through the whole development. Along with connecting the various neighbourhoods, it will provide a safe, social amenity space for all residents.

Phase One, which is now 85% sold, is delivering the very first new homes in the St Andrews West masterplan which, through its mixed use element, is creating a place where the wider community can thrive.

Under future phases of St Andrews West, a Hotel, retail businesses, Medical Centre and office accommodation will all be delivered, alongside land being given over to St Andrews University.

Joe Headon, commenting on the handover of properties to the first residents in Phase One, on behalf of both HeadonS1 and St Andrews West LLP, said: “We are delighted that our very first residents have moved in, and wish to extend a very warm welcome to them. We want everyone living here to really enjoy all the benefits that the overall vision of St Andrews West will deliver as it progresses. The development is the result of careful studies, detailed analysis, and of taking the time to understand the wider context of St Andrews.”

“Headon and S1 Developments are two respected developers with a shared ethos for excellence, who have come together to make sure this first phase of contemporary housing is in every way outstanding,” added Joe. “It’s a fitting beginning for the wider development which has the key concepts of biodiversity, connectivity, landscape and ecology at its core.”

Phase Two is expected to launch in November 2023.
