At Barratt @ Eskbank you will find everything you need for day to day life. With schools close by and a Tesco superstore in Dalkeith, as well as a range of high street stores, you'll never have to go far for the essentials. Edinburgh or Galashiels are within easy reach along the new Border's Railway so you can spend the day shopping or visiting the many bars and restaurants in the city.

Efficient, modern design

We dedicate a huge amount of time to research in order to find out exactly what you want and need from a new home. The result is the fantastic homes that we are building at Barratt @ Eskbank.

Our houses are built using Timber Frame, a technique that has stood the test of time in Scotland. We fill the frame with high performing mineral wool and in the cavity install a reflective polypropylene membrane that protects the building from water and holds heat. Our apartments are built using traditional techniques.

We only use the best quality materials available and our 5 Star Builder Status gives you the confidence that your new home is built to the highest standard.

The build so far

The build at Eskbank is moving fast, with many new homes already occupied. We are now building homes for autumn 2016. We have a great range of beautiful 4 and 5 bedroom family homes available to move into soon, you could buy with Part Exchange.
