DJ Laing Homes have opened the door to their brand new Showhome at Malt Loan, Carnoustie. This spectacular 4 bedroom property has been beautifully furnished by Millers of Carnoustie in a joint venture between the two companies.

The new 4 bedroom detached Showhome – ‘the Panmure’ – is one of 4 house styles available on the development which will benefit from integrated solar panels on the former Maltings site.

The popularity of these homes has been high, with 8 homes being reserved as soon as they were released. Some buyers even queued for hours to secure their preferred plot ! All two bedroom properties within the development were reserved within the first week and all 4 bedroom homes have since been reserved. However, there are still many 3 bedroom “Jensen” properties available to choose from at a fixed price of £190,000.

Karen Nicoll, Deputy Managing Director of D J Laing Homes commented: “We are delighted with the response to our homes on this development. We have modernised the external appearance of our homes and changed a lot of the internal features which customers are surprised are included as standard”.

“We were delighted to work in partnership with Millers as they expand their product range throughout the home. We have always used their company for our carpets and flooring but have now extended this with their gorgeous fitted blinds and curtains which were quick and easy to order. Millers will also be offering furniture packages to our first time buyers.”

This joint venture is a prime example of two local businesses working together to complement their business and their individual products. This initiative could develop further if Carnoustie businesses support the proposal for a BID (Business Improvement District). The aim of the BID is to make Carnoustie a popular town with interesting and unique activities and a thriving centre enjoyed by residents and visitors. If successful, it is proven that the BID can provide business growth with marketing, events, group buying and an enhanced trading environment for businesses and the town itself.

Gary Miller, owner of Millers of Carnoustie commented: “We are delighted to have been involved in DJ Laing’s latest Showhouse. Having recently opened new premises in Carnoustie (incorporating the Floor Studio and the Bed Studio) this was a perfect opportunity for us to showcase our extended range of furniture and soft furnishings in an actual home.

Each room within the Showhouse has been tastefully decorated with the latest designs and colours to enhance the available space and also gives you ideas on the latest trends to incorporate in your own home.

Buying a home is a major investment. Millers can help you with your selection and compete with larger stores so that it doesn’t cost a fortune to furnish your home.”

We would recommend a visit to the Showhome to see the range of houses and products available from two Carnoustie businesses that provide great service at an affordable price and a designer look without the price tag!

The Showhome is open Friday to Sunday from 11am till 5pm and the D J Laing sales team can be contacted 7 days a week. For more information, call 0845 257 2290 or visit
