18th May, 2021

Located in the highly sought after area of Broughty Ferry, our prestigious Balgillo Heights development offers a range of outstanding 3, 4 and 5 bedroom luxury homes - and has been exceptionally popular since launching in 2019.

If you’re considering a dream home in this prime location, or want to know what living at Balgillo Heights could look like, our fantastic Sales Advisor, Tom, has shared his insights on why this development really is the perfect place to call home...

Beautiful location

“On the first day I started at Balgillo heights, I was really impressed to find the semi-rural surroundings on the approach to the development - and interestingly, this is also something prospective clients tend to comment on as soon as they arrive. The residents at Balgillo Heights are both delighted and appreciative that they can enjoy such beautiful views and walking trails nearby, and the charming addition of livestock grazing within the neighbouring fields just adds a further sense of almost living in the countryside.”


A desirable postcode

“It’s easy to see why Broughty Ferry is known as ‘The Jewel in Dundee’s Crown’ - it is such a highly sought-after area! Our Balgillo Heights development offers a real opportunity to enjoy suburban living in a premium location - and the prices of our homes are always fixed for added peace of mind, so there’s no bidding wars to worry about.

“Just 5 minutes from the development you’ll find Broughty Ferry’s thriving high street, offering a variety of retail including charming cafes and hospitality venues, and an exceptionally pretty beach. Balgillo Heights also benefits from being in close proximity to a range of practical amenities. Our residents enjoy the convenience of living within striking distance to local butchers, bakeries and of course, supermarkets.

“Broughty Ferry is a suburb of Scotland’s 3rd largest city, Dundee - which was named Scotland’s best place to live in 2019. The striking distance to the city centre and the A90 makes the location very appealing for those who commute or want to enjoy everything that Dundee and the surrounding areas have to offer while living in a quiet, semi-rural setting.”

Family friendly environment

“Another significant tick box for many of our customers is just how child-friendly the development will be. An important consideration - and something we strive for when designing our Kirkwood developments - is the creation of green spaces. These spaces are for all residents to avail of, but in particular, offer children a safe environment to play within, which has definitely been achieved at Balgillo Heights.

“Balgillo Heights is also situated within the catchment area for some of the best and highest performing schools in the surrounding area, such as Forthill Primary and Grove Academy. This is definitely a factor for prospective buyers when they are considering the available education options, whether it’s presently or in the future.”

A close-knit community

“The sense of community at Balgillo Heights really is quite obvious, and it’s something that you notice as soon as you arrive at the development.

“There’s a real ‘village atmosphere’ within the development, where our residents are able to take a step back from the city lifestyle and enjoy life at a slower pace, yet still have everything that a city has to offer closeby. I think this peaceful, welcoming atmosphere is really apparent when I show potential buyers around - they can feel it too.”

High quality specification

“As with all of our developments, the build quality and specification of our homes here at Balgillo Heights are unrivalled in this vicinity. The constant feedback in regard to the high standards and specification of our homes has been - and continues to be - a pleasure to hear.

“Potential customers usually state how impressed they are by the wide variety of housetypes available here. We offer a superb range of homes to suit all requirements and budgets - whether you’re a first time buyer, a growing family looking to upsize, or a downsizer.

“As soon as you arrive at Balgillo Heights, it’s abundantly clear that our homes are built to an exceptionally high standard, however, once you step through the front door, the quality internal specification really shines through.”
