We care about the things you care about

17 Jul 2008

CALA Homes' The Sycamores is far more than a mere development - it's an idyllic way of life.

Reached through a tree-lined avenue and surrounded by acres of woodland, the collection of exclusive homes offers the finest semi-rural living.

Set in the former grounds of Liff Hospital in Tayside, the grand four and five-bedroom detached homes, echo the light and space of the tranquil location, bringing the outside in.

Some enjoy peaceful views over fields to the Firth of Tay and all are within easy reach of Dundee's cosmopolitan centre and the picturesque Perthshire countryside.

And the award-winning housebuilder's motto - 'We care about the things you care about' - is amply demonstrated in the attention to detail in this latest development, from the setting on Dundee's desirable western fringe to the stunning features including a spectacular galleried landing and sumptuous master bedroom suites.

CALA's traditional high quality finish is evident throughout the properties which include oak-veneered doors, underfloor heating, elegant staircases and advanced security systems. The range also features French doors to spacious gardens, German designer kitchens with integrated Siemens appliances and stylish designer bathrooms.

In the Kirklea design, for example, all four bedrooms are ranged around a beautiful galleried landing. They include an impressive master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and five-piece en suite. The second bedroom also has its own dressing area and en suite. But the heart of the home is its airy kitchen/family area and formal living/dining space with separate study.

The Inglewood, five-bedroom detached villa, boasts access from two different rooms to the patio in the garden. Upstairs features a settle seating area off the upper landing.

As CALA's architectural manager Ian Dickie, explained: "The Sycamores offers everything you're looking for in a home - and a few features you would never expect."

CALA Homes North Sales and Marketing Director, Andrea Joyce, said: "The Sycamores is perfectly placed for the best of both worlds - semi-rural living in a relaxed setting plus the convenience of easy access to a wide variety of amenities.

"Dundee is well-known as a major centre for learning with its universities and a great choice of schools. It has also seen a massive regeneration on the waterfront making it an attractive destination for business and pleasure.

"We believe The Sycamores will appeal to professionals and families looking for a peaceful countryside location but with excellent links to the city centre. Plus the development is just 1.5 miles from the A90 making it only a short journey from Perth and on to Scotland's other major cities."
