Ochilview Developments has revealed several homes at its No 1 Old Bellsdyke Road site have already been reserved from plan.

The development, near Forth Valley Royal Hospital, is the company’s fifth in the area and offers a mix of contemporary apartments and penthouses.

Chris Morris, Ochilview Developments joint managing director, said: “We are delighted to have hit the ground running at Bellsdyke Road, with a range of buyers from all over the Central Belt keen to reserve one of our luxury apartments and penthouses straight from plan.

“Our ethos as a growing house-building business is to create unique new-build homes which are simply seldom found in the current market, giving our buyers a clean, contemporary, Scandinavian-influenced look which will work with their requirements for modern living, especially as so many of us are currently working from home.

“Our award-winning architectural partners, Arka, bring our vision to life. Now onto our fifth successful development in the area, we can promise plenty more to come.”

Ochilview Developments is keen to grow its brand even more in 2021.

Mr Morris added: “Sales have been very good, and it could well be something to do with the fact that people want to invest in their home at this time, as they may need more room for home working and home schooling.

“We want to target industry accreditation this year, as we feel that having reached development number five, we have a solid track record to demonstrate.”
