Housebuilder celebrates trio of award nominations

FALKIRK-based housebuilder Ochilview Developments is celebrating after three shortlistings in the Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2021.

Two of its nominations are in the Best Family Home category, with a three-bedroom detached villa nominated at The Potteries in Larbert, together with at three-bedroom villa at The View, also in Larbert. Ochilview Developments has also been shortlisted for Best Apartment, for its two-bedroom offering at The Potteries.

Ochilview Developments said it has made a name for its brand with ‘unique’ new build homes exhibiting a ‘Scandinavian influenced look’, delivered in partnership with architects Arka.

Joint MD Chris Morris said, “This is fantastic news for us, and we’re so pleased to get the opportunity to take part this year in what we consider to be the premier housebuilding awards in the country.

“Events like this, recognising excellence in what we do, mark a return to normality for our industry which was severely affected by the pandemic at a time of great housing demand. We thank the Herald for laying on the event using the latest virtual technology. We will share it with our small team, including Arka, Atrium, our selling agents, and our tradesmen and suppliers, as any award is for us all.

“We’re delighted to have received a total of three shortlistings in categories which directly judge these villas and apartments which we have built with real care and attention to detail. They are occupied at this time by our extremely satisfied buyers who repeatedly told us they were looking for something a little different in the marketplace. We thank them for allowing the Herald judges access to their own homes so that the judging could take place.”
