Developer begins work on stunning new development.

Developer begins work on stunning new development.

Work has begun at Ledyatt Farm, a new luxury five-unit former farmstead development on the outskirts of Dundee.

The former farmland will undergo a remarkable transformation by developers R&A Contracts, with an expected completion date for the first phase of summer 2024.  

Based just a quarter mile west from Piperdam Golf course, by the rural hamlet of Lundie, this is an idyllic new development, perfectly planned and built for young families and located only 15 minutes from major employment centres situated in Dundee West End, including Ninewells Hospital and The Dundee University campus.

Each house has been designed to ensure living spaces are oriented either South or Southwest facing to maximise solar gains and enhance the quality of the internal environment. Large, bi-folding doors have been incorporated to provide access to South facing ‘courtyards’ to connect with the landscape and blur the distinction between indoors and outdoors. This connection with the surrounding landscape is further enhanced with strategically placed ‘landscape’ windows, which serve as picture frames to celebrate stunning key views over farmland to the Sidlaw hills, each house named after the corresponding hill viewpoint in the Sidlaw range.

All the homes will be built to the highest specification and will have an A rating for energy performance. Each home features underfloor heating, German-fitted kitchens and appliances, solar panels, and battery storage, double garages, electric car charging facility, and quality floor coverings. Additionally, primary heating is provided by an air source system backed up by solid fuel stoves and imported triple glazed timber framed windows.

Colin Emslie New Homes Manager, Thorntons, said: “This development is one of the most ambitious projects we have seen in this area in sometime and the specifications are of the highest standard.

“These are in every sense of the word flagship properties. The size and design of each is perfect for young families who want energy efficient, spacious homes, with generous gardens and surrounded by the natural landscape.

“They have all the modern commodities you could want from a twenty first century home including, air source heat pumps, electric car charging points, solar panels with battery storage units for personal usage and under floor heating on the ground floor.

“The beautiful German inspired interior design with incredible views from the living room make this a real statement development which has already attracted attention of people looking for their perfect home.”
