We are excited to launch a brand new development of luxury homes in the idyllic, countryside community of Sauchen… just a 15 minute drive from Westhill, Alford and Inverurie.

Could your dream home be at The Brambles? Read on to find out...

Our homes

The Brambles will be an intimate development of just 27 plots in a peaceful and charming location.

Consisting of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes, this development is a perfect move for anyone who enjoys countryside living - from growing families or young couples excited to start a family, to those looking to settle into their forever home.

The house types range in size from the Craig, our most popular 3 bedroom home, to our grand 5 bedroom homes, such as the Strathdon, Drumallan and Gullane. We also have spacious and luxurious 4 bedroom homes too, including the Morven, Lyon and the Marr.

The location

Situated in the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire, Sauchen is a quiet community full of charm and character. With just over 200 houses in the village, it offers a peaceful setting that’s ideal for those who enjoy a slower pace of life.

Sauchen is a very family-friendly community, with the fantastic local Cluny Primary School and playpark. For those with slightly older children, secondary education is provided at Alford Academy, while those with little ones can benefit from under 5s meet-ups on Friday mornings at Dunecht School.

Just a 5 minute drive away, you’ll find Dunecht, which has local stores and Jaff’s, a great bar and restaurant. A little further down the road you’ll find Westhill, which boasts a large Tesco supermarket, Marks & Spencer and Aldi, as well as a medical centre, two dental practices and a variety of bars and restaurants. A variety of additional shops and services are also available closeby in Alford, Kemnay, Monymusk and Inverurie.

With easy access to the city of Aberdeen, and Aberdeen International Airport only 14 miles away, you can make the most of life in the countryside but still stay well connected to the city. A commute to Aberdeen is under 17 miles, with your route passing through Westhill and Kingswells.
