MILLER Homes has secured the purchase of land at multiple locations across the east of Scotland, the housebuilder has announced.
The firm said that the purchase would bring 526 ‘much-needed’ new homes to towns and communities.
Miller will now begin work on developments at Winton View in Tranent; Carberry Grange in Whitecraig; Station Brae in Maddiston; Victoria Wynd in Kirkcaldy; and Calderwood in East Calder.
The new developments will feature homes in a range of styles and sizes, which Miller Homes said would meet the needs of people moving to ‘already vibrant’ communities or local people looking to either up or downsize.
The Winton View development will feature 99 three-to-five-bedroom homes and Carberry Grange will include 187 three-to-five-bedroom properties, plus 63 affordable homes. Station Brae will comprise of 72 terraced, semi-detached, and detached homes and 24 affordable homes, while Victoria Wynd will include 105 three and four-bedroom homes.
The housebuilder, which was founded and has its head office in Edinburgh, said it will deliver energy efficient homes, while working ‘considerately’ with the natural environment, local people, customers and colleagues.
Further to this, the firm said it has adapted its homes to ensure they effectively meet the needs of today’s buyers and their lifestyles, with homebuyer’s priorities changing with an increased demand for flexible living, working areas and outdoor space.
As a result, it said all new homes are built in-line with modern building regulations, which it revealed means they are ‘extremely’ energy efficient compared to older properties – with the homebuilder also fitting homes with energy efficient appliances, water efficient sanitary ware and low energy or LED lighting.
David Morgan, land director at Miller Homes, commented, “These are key acquisitions, meeting the needs of local people and communities which are growing and thriving. They are all in prime locations, within reach of cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow, and will provide high quality homes for families of all sizes.
“Current demand for new homes in these areas is incredibly high and we look forward to playing our part in what is, for many, a significant new chapter in the stories of their local communities.”
