Each home is named after historic families who previously lived in Dirleton Castle or castles in East Lothian, giving the development a historic connection to the local community.

The care and attention that has been put into this development really sets Castlemains apart. There are 9 unique layouts, each of them with their own character and modern family living in mind.

Natural light flows through the property thanks to the large windows and vaulted ceilings, creating spacious and contemporary rooms. The open plan designer German kitchen, dining and living area, as well as the spacious private gardens create the perfect family space. The comfortable bedrooms feature fitted designer wardrobes, with all of the master bedrooms including an ensuite bathroom for that extra space to unwind in. Every house also includes a driveway with space for 2 cars, and a good sized garage.
