  • Wilburn Homes

    Wilburn Homes is a Scottish building company with various developments across Scotland.

    At present they have 11 development projects ongoing at the following sites:

    Unfortunately, due to the popularity of their houses, most of the existing developments are already sold out.

    You can see why, though - they specialise in building attractive white houses, that can often have large gardens ideal for families.

    You can find a schedule of thier different builds here.

    The real complaint with this otherwise attractive houses is that they don't really know whether they are bungalows or villas - they tend to put some of the bedrooms on the ground floor, which isn't really what you'd expect from a detached property - other than a bungalow.

    Still, the houses are large and roomy, with generous lounge space and the master bedrooms can be pretty decent, too.

    The one thing that works against Milburn Homes, that I didn't really pick up on before, is their habit of designing homes with 1 or 2 bedrooms downstairs.

    This means that you're basically looking at a 2 or 3 bedroom house with an extra room downstairs - or a home that is somewhere between being a bungalow and a normal detached house.

    I guess you'd need to see one of the homes yourself to get an idea of suitability, but ideally I'm personally looking for something with 4 bedrooms - where all 4 bedrooms are upstairs.

    And for only a £20k-£30k extra I could probably find a house like that, with an extra room downstairs, and in a more desirable area as well.

    I'm hoping to visit one of their developments later in the year, so hopefully I can add to this in future.
