“Our launch is a great way to reinforce our commitment to the local RNLI, and we hope to see as many new visitors as possible to help us boost our fundraising donation to them.

“Each show home is a real showcase of the style, quality and workmanship that we offer, and we hope that visitors are inspired to make their move to a new home here.”

Prices for the new builds range rom £195,000 for the Blair three bedroom semi-detached houses, up to £325,000 for the Wallace five bedroom detached house.
