Almost half of the homes being built on the land where the St Leonard’s Hotel stood have been sold before the building has even begun.
Kirkwood Homes has recently launched the much anticipated development with 40% of the development sold off within weeks of it being released for sale.
There will be 20 homes on the land, including six townhouses and 14 apartments - some of which will be incorporated within the renovated hotel building itself.
Kirkwood Homes managing director Colin Crombie said: “We have been delighted by the success of the launch of the new St Leonards site, whilst we knew the site would be popular we did not expect the level of reservations that we have taken in such a short period of time. With interest and demand still very strong, we would encourage customers to move quickly so that they avoid being disappointed.
“We have had a long history with the St Leonards site and we have worked wherever possible with the local community to ensure that we will deliver what we believe will be a development of exceptional quality and a truly desirable place to call home, which will add to the community and breathe life back into the former hotel site.”
