Robertson Homes Moves into Haddington

Housebuilder of the Year 2017*, Robertson Homes, will unveil a select development of just 60 executive homes in Haddington on 21st October, with prices from £365,000.

The Dovecot Grange development is on the rural edge of new homes being built on former greenbelt land within walking distance of Knox Academy. It is expected to appeal to both local people and commuters, with Edinburgh less than fifteen miles, or half an hour’s drive away via the easily accessible A1.

Robertson Homes, which already has a successful development in nearby Dunbar, has a proud history of bringing quality new homes to well-established communities, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Midlands of England.

This small site consists of 60, four and five bedroom homes, some with extensive third floor accommodation which can be used as a home cinema, gym or spacious home office. Several of the house styles also feature generous garden rooms with spectacular floor to ceiling windows and vaulted timber roofs.

In addition to being Housebuilder of the Year*, Robertson Homes won awards this year for “Family Home of the Year”* and “Showhome of the Year”** in nearby Dunbar.   

Sharon Spinelli of Robertson Homes said, “Robertson Homes are recognised for generous room sizes, higher ceilings and larger than usual windows as we like to design homes with maximum space and light.

“Location is crucial too however and Haddington offers such a beautiful setting, within a thriving community with established schools, local businesses and landmarks such as St Mary’s Church, the oldest parish church in Scotland. And Lennoxlove House built by William Adam with its 15th century tower.

“We believe Haddington and Dunbar represent the “next big thing” for Edinburgh professionals seeking genuine quality of life within easy commuting distance.”

Two showhomes open their doors on Saturday 21st October but there’s a £1,000 pre-showhome incentive currently available on early reservations made through the Dunbar office on 0333 005 0435.

From 21st October, the sales office will be open at Dovecot Farm, Haddington   EH41 4HA on Thursdays to Mondays (inclusive) from 10.30 – 5.30.  Visit www.robertsonhomes.co.uk or call 07557 325620 for more information.

Excitement builds as award-winning Robertson Homes launches new Lenzie development

Award-winning builder Robertson Homes has launched a new housing development in Lenzie – with already huge interest in the new properties.

The new Meadows development, located at the town’s Auchinloch Road,  consists of just 60 stylish four- and five-bedroom homes from Robertson’s Home Artistry collection.

The company’s sales team have confirmed this week that a large number of the new homes in phase one of the development were snapped up by people who had registered even before the public launch on 21st October.

Sharon Spinelli, Sales and Marketing Director at Robertson Homes, says: “East Dunbartonshire has always been a hugely popular area. However, there’s a real impetus to the local housing market at present and that’s definitely reflected in the high levels of interest we’re seeing, with a significant percentage of new homes already reserved.

“That’s why we’re encouraging people to visit our website and register their interest as that gives them the first opportunity to reserve a home, as well as to receive regular updates on the development and advance news on home incentives.”

Robertson Homes has been building family homes at prestigious sites across Scotland for more than fifty years. The firm is part of Robertson Group, a privately-owned group of companies which employs 2,200 people in construction, infrastructure and support services across Scotland and the North and Midlands of England.

The company has been recognised through multiple, national awards including “Housebuilder of the Year 2017*”, “Family Home of the Year 2017*” and “Showhome of the Year 2017**.

“We’ve built our reputation on building outstanding properties in high quality locations” says Sharon Spinelli.

“Lenzie is already amongst Scotland’s most sought after destinations for homebuyers.

“The town is an excellent option for families thanks to its highly regarded schools and first class  local amenities including shops, golf and tennis clubs. It also offers easy access to the surrounding beautiful countryside including the nearby Campsie Hills. It is, however, its proximity to fast rail links to both Glasgow and Edinburgh which make Lenzie particularly popular with commuters.

“Our first Lenzie showhome is planned to open in the new year.”

The new homes from Robertson’s Home Artistry collection will boast the outstanding specifications which are standard in all the company’s properties.

These include open-plan kitchen/dining areas with fully integrated Siemens appliances, bathrooms featuring sleek sanitaryware by Villeroy & Boch with chrome-edged Porcelanosa tiling and luxurious Hansgrohe taps and mixers and ensuite master bedrooms with fitted wardrobes.

Sharon Spinelli continued: “Our Lenzie homes will benefit from the attention to detail and high quality specifications which our customers expect and which provide the foundation for our successful creation of communities of homes across Scotland.”

The development is launching from Robertson Homes’ recently sold out Hepburn Gate development in Bothwell. For further information on The Meadows, Lenzie, please visit the Bothwell site or register online before the sales office opens on 21st October at www.robertsonhomes.co.uk or call 0333 005 0481.

Further information:

  • Prices will range from £428,000
  • Showhomes are due to open in the new year
  • Dependent on house type, Robertson standard features, fixtures and fittings include Siemens kitchen appliances, sanitaryware by Villeroy & Boch and Porcelanosa bathroom tiling and single/double integral and stand-alone garages. Alarm systems, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and gated timber fencing are fitted as standard

Award-winning Robertson Homes launches new Inverness development

Award-winning builder Robertson Homes has launched a new housing development in Inverness. Great Glen View, located at Forester’s Way, Inverness, will consist of 22 high quality, three bedroom semi-detached and terrace homes.

Robertson Homes has been building family homes in desirable locations across Scotland for more than fifty years and is part of Robertson Group, a privately-owned group of companies which employs 1900 people in construction, infrastructure and support services across Scotland and the North and Midlands of England.

The company has been recognised through multiple, national awards including “Housebuilder of the Year 2017*”, “Family Home of the Year 2017*” and “Showhome of the Year 2017**.

“We’ve built our reputation on building outstanding properties in high quality locations” says Sharon Spinelli, Sales and Marketing Director at Robertson Homes, “and our new Inverness development, situated in such a beautiful part of Scotland, typifies that approach.

“Great Glen View will feature stylish, spacious homes which benefit from innovative layouts and offer the perfect base for families and professionals.

“These homes provide the best of both worlds – easy access to some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery and outdoor activities as well as close proximity to all the amenities and attractions around the cultural capital of the Highlands.”

The new three bedroom mid- and end-terraced Calico homes from Robertson’s award-winning Boutique Collection boast outstanding specifications which are standard in all the company’s properties.

These include open-plan kitchen/dining areas with fully integrated SMEG appliances, bathrooms featuring sleek sanitaryware by Vitra with chrome-edged Porcelanosa tiling and luxurious Hansgrohe taps, plus ensuite master bedrooms with fitted wardrobes.

First development in England by Robertson Homes opens its doors in Northumberland

Scotland’s Home Builder of the Year 2017* has taken its wares into England with the launch of Robertson Homes’ first showhome South of the border.

The 21st October saw a new kid arrive on the block in the market town of Rothbury, Northumberland, with Robertson Homes officially launching its Cragside Gardens development of 40 luxury homes. All have a superior spec and a few design touches expected to surprise a local market starved of new housing stock for some years. 

Three, four and five bedroom detached houses in a range of styles will be available, with prices from £237,950

Robertson Homes’ second foray into England is already underway with a further official launch expected before the end of the year.   

Sharon Spinelli, Sales & Marketing Director of Robertson Homes said: “This is an unrivalled location in the North East, with a great quality of life for commuters and easy access to both the Northumberland National Park and the seaside delights of Whitley Bay.

“It was an easy decision to make Rothbury our first foray into England and we’re really excited to be taking the Robertson Homes’ product South.”

Cragside Gardens, Rothbury is 13.5 miles northwest of Morpeth and 26 miles north-northwest of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Robertson Homes is part of the Robertson Group, a privately-owned group of companies working in construction, infrastructure and support services, employing over 1,900 people across Scotland and the North and Midlands of England.

Winners of Best Showhome at the Herald Property Awards 2017

Phew, it’s been a dynamic year at Robertson Homes and the hard work of all concerned has just been rewarded with the “Best Showhome” prize at the Herald Property Awards (for the Sienna Garden Room property). This adds to our recognition in the Scottish Home Awards 2017 as “Housebuilder of the Year” and for the Azure Grand as “House of the Year”...

In case anyone thinks we’re resting on our laurels, let us say that we couldn’t be more chuffed that our hard work and dedication to quality has been recognised through these awards but we’re already looking forwards.

We’ve moved decisively into the North of England and have some exciting new showhomes coming soon. You’ll shortly see opportunities to buy a well designed and award winning new home coming up at Great Glen View in Inverness. We’re getting ready to unveil another new showhome at the upmarket Dovecot Grange development in Haddington with a mix of 4 and 5 bedroom detached homes, and to launch an exciting new development in Lenzie, offering appealing lifestyle options within the commuter belt for Glasgow and Edinburgh.

That’s not all that’s in the pipeline but our aim is to keep surprising and delighting those who either live in a new Robertson Home or might be thinking of checking out a local development – and we are determined to keep the good news coming.

For now though, please join us in celebrating an exceptional year for Robertson Homes and applauding everyone who helped along the way to listen to customers and deliver the best home; best showhome and best housebuilding team in Scotland in 2017 – it’s official! 

Reasons to be cheerful - The Herald Awards

Reasons to be cheerful

People get jaded for all sorts of reasons; some reasons are valid and some are problematic. I’m generally a glass half-full sort of person and if there’s ever a choice to be made between celebration and cynicism, hand me the champagne glass any time....

So we’re currently hanging out the flags that Robertson Homes has again been shortlisted in prestigious industry awards. We enthusiastically revel in the fact that we won the title “Scottish Homebuilder of the Year” a few months ago, and also lifted the prize for “House of the Year” at the same event, hosted by the Scottish Home Awards.

This time, we have been shortlisted in all three categories we entered in the Herald newspaper awards (for Showhome, Luxury Home and Family Home of the Year) and we will be there at the ceremony in November, genuinely applauding everyone else but still hoping fervently that the prize comes to us.   

It’s not so much that I like award dinners or am desperate for another portion of Scottish Cranachan; it’s more that as a company, our culture is most definitely one of celebrating success.

We don’t build houses just to make up numbers and we don’t enter awards merely to fill up a trophy cabinet. We genuinely strive to be the best we can be, at all levels, and when this is recognised, we are only too happy to receive the compliment with good grace and genuine pleasure.   

Being shortlisted means we can go back and thank the architect; the bricklayer; the landscape gardener and the interior designer who all gave of their best to create the best possible home.

It also means we can celebrate with those families who make the choice to buy a Robertson Home. We put as much effort into our competition entries as we do to everything else and it’s lovely to share success with both the creators and ultimate beneficiaries of all that hard work.

It’s not hubris, it’s broadly-smiling, genuinely chuffed, hard-working, unpretentious pride.

Bring on the awards season – Robertson Homes couldn’t be prouder of being Housebuilder of the Year 2017.

First steps taken over new West Link bridge in Inverness

CONSTRUCTION of the West Link in Inverness has passed another major milestone after a senior councillor was among the first people to walk across the route’s new River Ness road bridge.

Cllr Allan Henderson, chairman of the local authority’s places committee, walked over the bridge yesterday to signal the latest progress in the £55 million project.

He said: “It is marvellous to be able to finally do this.”

Plans are under way to find a name for the new bridge and the options will go to a public vote in the autumn.

The West Link is due to open to traffic by December, although a short section of the road east of the river is already open for local access only.

Once completed, it will connect the Ness-side area of the city with Tomnahurich via a new road layout and bridge at Holm Mills. It is designed to reduce city centre traffic congestion.

Phase two of the project will include a second swing bridge over the Caledonian Canal and construction of new golf holes for Torvean Golf Club to accommodate that bridge’s link to the A82. It is scheduled to begin in 2019 for completion in 2020.

The project will enable the development of significant areas for housing and other schemes at Ness-side and Torvean.
