S1 Developments is a family firm run by brothers Dan and Shane Teague. Dan is a qualified solicitor while Shane has 10 years previous experience as site manager for the long established Teague Group.

Formed in 2007 we have completed a series of successful new build and conversion projects in Edinburgh’s most exclusive locations. Our aim is to provide new homes of exceptional quality. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide a service that is tailored, experienced and thorough. Every home that we build has the quality and attention to detail that we are proud to put our name to leading us to House Builder of the year 2015, 2016 and 2017.


“We have friends who had purchased a flat from S1 development in Murrayfield, and we were very impressed with the high quality design and finishes in their flat. Because of that, we were happy to purchase off plan at the development in Horne Terrace, and from the beginning the customer service has been exemplary. We are now living in the flat and our very high expectations have been surpassed. ”

Horne Terrace

As a buy-to-let investor looking for a new property, I was recommended, by my letting agents, to take a look at the S1 Developments flats at Horne Terrace. It has turned out to be a very good recommendation. I reserved a property off-plan the following day and S1 Developments were very attentive, helpful and supportive throughout the whole process, making specific, and very good, recommendations for a buy-to-let. The stunning property was handed over to me on time and in immaculate condition and was let at a good rent within two weeks. For my next property, S1 Development will be my first call.

“I recently purchased a house in the Malta Court development in Stockbridge. I purchased the house off plan, and from the outset S1 Developments were absolutely fantastic in their customer focus. S1 allowed us to get involved in the detailed planning of the interior space, and customise it to make it individual. S1’s attention to detail, commitment to high quality, and customer service was evident from the very outset. S1 kept us very well informed of progress during the design and build process, and communication was first class throughout. S1 have consistently delivered on this development to their commitments on time and cost. The extras and design changes that we requested were accommodated with a minimum of fuss, and the extras that we did request were very reasonable too. The finished development is of outstanding quality and exceeds out initial expectations; I am delighted with my new house and the whole purchase experience.”

“After reserving off plan at Ellersly road I tailored my penthouse during a number of one on one meetings – a fantastic experience and something many new build developers do not offer. I tweaked the layout, amended electrics and even added a made to measure glass door resulting in a property I felt I made my own even before I moved in.”

“I would like to thank S1 developments for our new home, we are absolutely delighted with it. From design, flexibility in customisation, detailing in fittings, service and quality, we are 100% pleased. It was a pleasure to deal with you guys from start to post move in follow ups. Well done, great job.”

“Our house is fantastic – combining all the advantages of a new house, the state of the art kitchen, gorgeous bathrooms and superb heating system, with the benefits of living in a period house – spacious rooms, high ceilings, beautiful cornicing & panelling. Every room was decorated to our choice so the house came completely ready to move in to – unlike our previous new houses where every room was painted magnolia and we then had to paint these to suit our own taste. Does it get any better than this???”

“We are absolutely delighted with our new home and with the service we received from S1 Developments. From the outset Shane & Dan were very accommodating with changes/extras that we wanted to make to the house and were very reasonable with the prices they charged for these, and we really feel that we got our ideal family home as a result! Previously we have dealt with two other major house builders and the attitude and service provided by S1 Developments is in a totally different class. So a big thank you to Shane, Dan and the rest of the team. We wish you every success – you deserve it.”

“We have been delighted with our new home. We bought off plan and at every stage S1 have proved highly responsive, flexible and professional, always seeking better solutions and striving to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. The tradesmen were fantastic too, they consistently went the extra mile and took real pride in their work.”

“As a construction professional I was looking for high quality and a good choice of finishings and fittings when it came to buying a new home. Having now purchased an S1 home in Edinburgh, I have no hesitation in saying that our new S1 house exceeded our expectations and that the service we received from S1 more than exceeded our expectations. I would recommend S1 Developments to anyone looking for a new quality home.”

“We are absolutely delighted with our new home and can honestly say that Shane and Dan have surpassed our high expectations with their customer service, positive attitude and problem solving approach. Despite us only buying when the house was almost finished, they were extremely accommodating with respect to making changes and we have never felt that something was too much effort. The finish is fantastic and the pride they take in building their houses shines through. I never expect to move but would contact the Teagues to buy from them first if we did! “

“We love our new home! These really are fantastic family homes which have been finished to an exceptionally high standard. We have all the features we love in a period property, ie. generous room sizes, high ceilings, lovely cornicing, etc, but in a brand new home with double-glazing and under-floor heating (which is amazing).
We visited the site on several occasions during the build and Dan made us feel most welcome and gave us a detailed walk-through of the property. We would not hesitate in recommending buying an S1 home.”

“I had been looking to move for some time but everything that I had looked at either required too much work to change it to how I would like it or just didn’t have the space and layout I wanted.When I was shown round the stone walls and bare floorboards of the development at Inverleith Terrace I was both extremely excited by the vision that was being proposed and quite nervous. A designer kitchen, multiple bathrooms with my choice of tiles, the space of the proposed rooms, usable layout and my choice of fit and finish all sounded perfect but it’s easy to make promises that aren’t delivered. However I needn’t have worried as at every step of the journey S1 were there to help and make sure I was happy with how everything was progressing.
The first step was when I was personally introduced to the kitchen designer. I was shown the outline kitchen proposal that that they had drawn up and talked through the concept. It was a great design but being able to make a few tweaks to make it just right was really welcome. The fit and finish of the installed kitchen is fantastic and I still love coming home to it every day nearly 9 months after moving in.

My previous flat had a beautiful natural stone tiled bathroom and this was something that I was really keen to continue with in my new home. Again I was personally introduced to the tile supplier who was able to show me a number of different options before I settled on my final choices. I knew that the tiles would be much more expensive than what was probably budgeted for and that they’re not the easiest to work with so I was surprised that the small excess I was asked for was not more. The finished en-suite, bathroom and WC were truly stunning and definitely have the wow factor.

Choosing the paint finish and carpets was all very smooth and getting the lights I wanted fitted was really easy. S1 were always very helpful and kept me informed all the way through the process. When I moved in my new home was virtually flawless and I was absolutely delighted with the finished result.”

“I could not have asked for better co-operation on the run up to moving in to my new home. They were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The finishes in the house are of the highest standard and I am perfectly happy and established in my new home. They were also very prompt at attending to the minor snagging issues that evolved in the first few months and I am very satisfied with everthing.”

“We bought our first home together in the Primary 1 development in Canonmills. We really enjoyed the before and after service provided by S1 developments who always responded to our queries quickly and in a professional manner. We are really pleased with our house, in particular the standard of workmanship and care taken when finishing it, which has resulted in it being, what we consider, the perfect house for us.”
