The community, which is situated five miles south of Aberdeen, continues to be popular with a mix of house buyers keen to benefit from countryside living yet close proximity to the city.

All four housebuilders have new properties in the plans for next year. Aboyne-based AJC will be starting to build homes around the park at Wolrige Gardens, ZeroC has houses under construction including a new shared equity scheme and Perthshire housebuilder, Stephen, will be offering more of its successful Melfort house-type, amongst others. Plans are also proceeding for six plots to be released on the southern boundary of the town for self-build. Award-winning local housebuilder Snowdrop Developments has also started to build on site and will be opening a showhome in Chapelton, offering prospective buyers the chance to see what their new home in the town could look like.

The Duke of Fife, Director of Elsick Development Company, which is leading the building of Chapelton, said: “This past year has been difficult for us all but as we move into 2021 we are really excited to see these new opportunities coming to life.

“More and more buyers are keen to move to a location that is equipped for everyday life – from spacious modern homes that include workspace and superfast internet, to plenty of recreational areas and a supportive surrounding community. We look forward to sharing more about the plans and opportunities in coming months.”

Nearly 200 homes are now occupied in Chapelton with the town also benefiting from a nursery school, tearoom and visitor centre, and hair and beauty salon. Green space such as parks and recreational areas are also located throughout the town where events have continued to be hosted safely this year.
