At Woodlands, Gorebridge, amidst Midlothian's rolling countryside, you'd be forgiven for thinking that you were a million miles away from the bustle of the city. Yet you're a mere 11 miles away from Edinburgh's cosmopolitan city centre, and just 7 miles away from its fringes. Edinburgh will come even closer in September 2015 when the Waverley railway line reopens connecting Gorebridge directly with central Edinburgh, Midlothian and the Borders. The new Gorebridge station is only a short walk from Woodlands making it ideal for commuters, the journey is only 13 minutes long. That's the real beauty of Woodlands – having the best of both worlds.
It’s not just the wonderful location that sets Woodlands apart though; it’s the size, finish and build-quality of our homes. At Mansell we understand that a new home is for living in so we make sure our rooms allow you to do just that. That’s why you’ll find that a four-bedroom detached Mansell home is bigger than most five-bedroom houses being built elsewhere in Gorebridge. A bedroom shouldn’t be a tiny, glorified walk-in cupboard in our opinion. Our homes are simply roomier and more spacious than those of other builders. We’ve currently got three-bedroom ‘linked’ homes, four and five-bedroom detached homes, and every home available at Woodlands has a garage and some have a double garage. Likewise we don’t hide the real cost of fixtures and fittings, we include them in price of the home, you don’t pay extra for what should come as standard. Lastly, we know how much you value your quality of life, that’s why we don’t cram as many houses as possible in. We leave space, our unique ‘village green’ at Woodlands provides a place to walk, play and relax for example.
If you are thinking of Gorebridge you really need to see Woodlands to fully appreciate the roomiest, best specified homes currently being built in Midlothian.
