This is why The Craig is our most popular 3 bed home

The Craig has long been our most popular 3 bedroom home, but why is this? We've asked our visitors, customers, and even our Sales Advisors to shine a light on just what makes this housetype so special.

1. Its spacious size and functional layout

The Craig really is a thoughtfully designed 3 bedroom detached home and visitors simply love the layout and appreciate the proportions on offer.

Coming through the front door, you’ll immediately be impressed by the spacious and bright hallway. From here, there’s an airy, good sized lounge whilst the excellent German kitchen sits at the rear of the property, opening into a generous family/dining area with French doors leading out to the garden - ideal for the summer months when the BBQ is on! They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and this space really is perfect for spending time with family and friends.

Downstairs you'll also find an excellent utility room off the kitchen, that you could even turn into your dog's living space like we've done in one of our showhomes, a  store under the stairs and a useful cloakroom.

Moving upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and all boasting built in wardrobes, with the master bedroom enjoying a sumptuous ensuite. There’s an excellent family bathroom on this floor, and a further storage cupboard in the landing.

2. A luxurious master bedroom with ensuite 

One of the top thing that blows people away when they visit our Craig showhomes is the sumptuous ensuite in the master bedroom. Kenny Laird, one of our customers who recently moved with his family to a Craig in Alford, said "I love the master bedroom with its fantastic ensuite. We came from a house with one bathroom between the four of us and it just makes things so much easier."

This outstanding ensuite boasts both a shower and bath so the choice is yours - a refreshing shower or a long relaxing soak.

3. Spacious and welcoming hallway

When visitors enter The Craig, they always comment on how spacious the hallway is. This adds to the feeling of open space throughout the entire home.

4. Detached home for more privacy

This home is detached, which is ideal if you're moving up from an apartment or a terraced home. This gives you a sense of having your own space, and more privacy. It also means you don't have to worry about making noise!

5. Plenty of storage space

In The Craig housetype you'll find large storage cupboards both downstairs and upstairs - an essential feature for a busy family home.

6. Integral garage and private driveway

Having a garage and private driveway is definitely one of the top selling points of The Craig. 

The single integral garage gives you space and flexibility, and it's up to you to get creative with this space. Some of our customers use it as a garage, others use it as a place to store their bikes, kids' toys, or clutter they simply don't want in the house, but some have actually opted to turn it into a mini gym. The choice is yours. 

A driveway is also great, especially for those car fanatics out there who enjoy cleaning their cars at the weekend!

7. Separate utility room

Keeping your washing machine and tumble dryer away from the main living space is ideal, and The Craig allows you to do this with the separate utility room next to the kitchen.
