Overview

Welcome to Glenesk

Occupying a beautiful situation alongside the picturesque River North Esk, sheltered by a fringe of mature trees, this outstandingly attractive development of modern, energy efficient two, three, four and five bedroom homes is a prestigious addition to the prosperous village of Lasswade. The semi-rural setting, nestling in the shade of the spectacular viaduct of the old Esk Valley Railway, is a short drive from the Edinburgh City Bypass and seven miles from Edinburgh city centre.

Living in Lasswade

Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters
like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well
as being a pleasant place to live. 

Transport

Around two miles from the City of Edinburgh Bypass and seven and a half from Princes Street, the development is extremely convenient for travel throughout the central belt and to Edinburgh Airport. Lasswade and Bonnyrigg are served
by Lothian Region buses. Route 31, which includes night buses, serves the city centre while service 40 runs to Penicuik, Musselburgh and Portobello. Both stop within a short walk of the development.

Local Amenities

The picturesque Laird and Dog, a few minutes walk away, combines a traditional bar and a popular conservatory restaurant. Even closer, the recently-opened Paper Mill restaurant, housed in a sensitively converted mill building, has already won positive reviews. There is a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and cafés in Bonnyrigg, within walking distance.

Leisure & Recreation

Lasswade is surrounded by wonderful country-side. The Moorfoot Hills and the Pentland Hills, home of the Midlothian Snowsports Centre, are both nearby, and the River North Esk offers walks through Bilston Wood and on to Roslin Castle and the exquisite Roslin Chapel. For indoor fitness facilities, the excellent Lasswade Centre incorporates a 25m swimming pool, hydrotherapy suite, gym and sports facilities as well as a café and a local library, and there are two golf courses, Broomieknow and Kings Acre, on the edge of the village.

Recycling Facilities

There are recycling bins for glass bottles and jars, household packaging, textiles
and paper in the car park of the Laird and Dog pub, with additional facilities
at the Somerfield store in Bonnyrigg High Street. Larger items such as white goods, household appliances and furniture are accepted at the Midlothian Furniture Recycling Project in Dalkeith and Stobhill Recycling Centre in Newtongrange, both around three miles away.

Education & Health

The development is within walking distance of Lasswade Primary, Hawthornden Primary and St Mary’s RC Primary schools, and Lasswade High School is roughly
a mile away. Both the Old Orchard dental surgery and Bonnyrigg Health Centre, which houses three medical practices in modern premises, are less than a mile from the development.

Shopping

Bonnyrigg High Street is a traditional shopping area that covers most everyday needs, with supermarkets, butchers, newsagents, pharmacies, a delicatessen, hot
food takeaways, banks, hairdressers and other services. For a wider choice of specialist retailers, department stores, malls and high street names, the superb shopping areas of Edinburgh are just a short trip away.

About Developer

Our Background

We’ll keep it brief, because a lot has happened over the past seventy-five years. Around 100,000 new Miller homes, for a start. A lot of new ideas in building technology. Loads of awards, like Major Housebuilder of the Year, Large Housebuilder of the Year, Best Sustainable Development, and Private Housebuilder of the Year. That last one’s important because it’s from First Time Buyer magazine, so it’s about real people and their experiences.

Listening to you

Four times every year, we ask an independent research company to find out whether our customers would recommend us to friends. Our current rating is 97% positive (2012 average).

That’s about more than great houses. It’s about keeping in touch, helping you find what you want, helping you buy it once you’ve found it, telling you how the building’s coming along (by email, SMS, or the post). It’s about listening, and being there if you have a question or a problem. It’s about our incentives, offers and assistance schemes (please check them out), and dedicated websites that help people in a new neighbourhood to get to know each other. Yes, we get excited by new ideas and technologies, but essentially we’re just old fashioned, home loving people.

Quality homes. In quality places.

Building homes is what we do, and we do it exceptionally well. Over the past 75 years, we’ve seen what people really like about the homes we build and, well, we build on that experience.

So you know that behind the kerb appeal there’s a structure that meets the highest professional standards. You know that the beautifully proportioned rooms are impeccably finished and decorated. You know that every detail has been checked, inspected (and admired). You know all that because of the way the door feels when you open it, the crisp clean edge of the paintwork, the way your whole home just works. That’s experience.

What you may not realise, at least until you have the pleasant surprise of seeing your fuel bills, is that we are also absolutely committed to the most environmentally friendly movements in homebuilding. This means we use low-carbon construction methods (even zero carbon on occasion) but it also means that our homes are highly energy efficient in everyday life.

And finally, location location location. Some people want country quiet, some want urban convenience. All we can do is try to find the very best spot for every taste. So we try to put urban where it’s also pretty quiet and rural where it’s also pretty convenient. And the views? Well, we can’t move mountains (and wouldn’t if we could) but we will try to make sure your new home is pointing towards one if there’s one available, and something else nice if there’s not.

Service is too small a word.

We think of it as a relationship. Even if it never gets beyond the electronic stage we’ll do our very best to help you find what you’re looking for, and do it as unobtrusively as we can. You choose the channels, and we go away when you ask us to.

When you visit one of our developments, though, we have a chance to meet properly and talk. We enjoy that. We’ll show you homes we think you might like (or ones very like them if they’re not finished yet) and tell you about special offers that might interest you.

If you decide to buy, we’ll help in every way we can. We can give you information about mortgages and lawyers if you want it, although we’re careful not to become too close to anyone working on your behalf because we don’t want any conflicts of interest. Then we’ll keep you informed as your new home is being built, and invite you round at the appropriate time to choose things like kitchen worktops and bathroom tiles. If you want to measure up for carpets and curtains, we’ll do our best to arrange things.

When you get your keys, there’s a meeting to go over all the important stuff like stopcocks and thermostats, and we’ll also leave you full instructions. But here’s the best part. We don’t go away. We’ll leave you in peace, of course, but if you need help or advice we’ll be on hand for as long as you need us. That’s the kind of relationship we like.
