Bigger is better, as the old saying goes?
But we all know this isn’t the case.
Who would want big bills? Nobody wants to shoulder big debts. And nobody thinks big problems are a good thing to have.
So it’s no surprise that the time comes for many of us when we look to downsize and move to a smaller, more suitable property.
The kids have flown the nest, the commute might be taking its toll or you may simply just want to free up some extra cash to go and explore your dream locations or fund your passion.
Whatever it may be, downsizing offers the chance to move to a classy, modern new home to help you enjoy later life in style.
And those looking for such a lifestyle need look no further than a stunning re-development project set in the heart of Scotland.
Kinross Town Hall combines architectural heritage with contemporary style and convenience thanks to its stylish mix of one and two bedroom apartments.
Ideally located on the bustling town’s High Street, the project has created the area’s premium residential apartments while also renovating and reviving a stone-built, iconic local landmark.
As one of Kinross’ most famous properties, discerning downsizers will be moving to a building which combines an eclectic mix of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture.
A report carried out by the National House Building Council (NHBC)* stated that downsizers’ top priorities when choosing their new home are buying a property that requires minimal maintenance, offers stylish living spaces and a good location.
Kinross Town Hall ticks all three of these boxes comfortably.
The newly built apartments have all been individually designed by a team of expert architects to create unique, modern living spaces.
The large civic spaces from the previous design have been maximised which makes for a spacious, open feel in each property.
High quality materials have been used throughout, from timber sash and case windows made in Scotland, to hardwood doors and a traditional slate roof, all of which combine to improve energy efficiency.
Downsizers won’t have to worry about the costs of replacing a kitchen either, as the handmade design in the Kinross Town Hall apartments come with a 25 year guarantee, as do the silestone worktops.
Underfloor heating and Google Nest smart boilers help keep the homes cosy in winter months, while also keeping energy bills down.
For those looking to escape the hectic nature of life in the city, there’s no better choice than Kinross.
As one of the most attractive places to live in the country, the county is awash with culture, boasting a bird sanctuary and historic castle as well as scenic walking routes and fishing spots.
For those looking to swap mornings in the office for mornings on the links, there’s an abundance of top golf courses within easy reach as well.
The apartments are within walking distance to Kinross’ local restaurants, shops and cafes.
The development is also well located for those looking to travel to Scotland’s capital as it’s only 25 miles to Edinburgh.
So if you’re a downsizer who realises that big isn’t always better, the only question that remains is; what are you going to tell the kids when they see Kinross Town Hall and want to move back home?
