Upmarket housebuilder Cala Homes said it had made strong progress on the second phase of Ravelrig Heights, a major development at the northern edge of Balerno.

The firm added that it was also close to selling out at Kingfisher Park, a site on the village’s eastern boundary.

Across the two locations, the company is building 346 homes, from one-bedroom flats to five-bedroomed detached properties.

Craig Lynes, managing director with Cala Homes (East), said: “We took the unusual step of launching two developments in Balerno at the same time because we were confident that the location could attract a wide range of buyers.

“Entering into the final, 34-home phase at Ravelrig Heights is very exciting for us. The market has changed and buyers are wanting maximum space inside and out, to fit with both their work and lifestyle choices.”

The two developments, which launched less than a fortnight apart in late 2017, follow previous projects in the popular village, where the Edinburgh-headquartered developer has played an active role within the community.

Cala has been the main sponsor for local rugby club Currie Chieftains since 2011 and played an integral role in support of the Ravelrig Riding for the Disabled Association (RRDA) – gifting the land it is based on and donating £20,000 towards the organisation’s bid to raise funds for an indoor riding arena.

For the last three years it has been a partner in the Currie and Balerno Community Chest.
