Two Awards Herald Miller Homes as Hot Property


Miller Homes is the proud owner of another two new accolades, following the 2010 Herald Property Awards which took place on Friday 17 September. Winning ‘Development of the Year’ for its Varcity site and ‘Best Show Home’ for The Lorimar, at its stunning Graysmill Gait development, the awards reflect the stunning design and high quality new homes that Miller Homes is renowned for.

It’s no wonder that Miller Homes’ popular Varcity development took the top title, being the ideal choice for professionals who have a busy lifestyle and want a great city apartment near work and thriving leisure hotspots. With stunning views to Edinburgh castle, stylish urban apartments and a bustling community, Varcity is the obvious choice for those wanting to invest in a home that can give them a taste of city life, whilst retaining a close community feel.
And, situated within the sought after Craiglockhart suburb of Edinburgh, the exclusive Graysmaill Gait development with its impressive Lorimar show home took centre stage as the most spectacular detached five-bedroom property, in the excess of 1800 sq ft category. With judges recognising The Lorimar’s appeal to the sophisticated modern buyer, looking for both space and style, the location of Graysmill Gait near to a range of good local services, shops and some of the most respected private schools in the capital speaks for itself.

Both awards come at an exciting time for those looking to buy their very own slice of heaven at one of Miller Homes’ hot developments. Spicing things up for house hunters across Scotland this autumn, Miller Homes is throwing 12 months free mortgage payment protection and £500 worth of Marks & Spencer’s vouchers into its already irresistible new home mix*. In fact, the added offers are designed to be the icing on the cake for buyers with Deposit Match, MiSwap and MiWay already on the table – offering buyers some delicious autumn deals*.

Louise Caldwell, Associate Sales Director for Miller Homes Scotland East, said: “The Herald Property Awards are a benchmark of quality. They reflect innovation and projects which meet the needs of contemporary living, so taking away two trophies is a great honour for us. We want to provide homes that people are proud to live in, creating a life time of happy memories. Our autumn campaign also shows that we are making every effort to get people onto the property ladder and make them feel at home from day one. We hope this creates the perfect mix for house hunters and the recipe for finding them their dream home.”

Houses hunters have until 22 October to take advantage of this impressive Miller menu that includes help with raising a deposit, part exchange or shared equity* - with 12 months free mortgage protection and £500 worth of food shopping to sweeten the deal.

With MiWay*, prices for remaining plots at Varcity start from £135,150 for one of the top quality one bed properties and two bed apartments from £169,996 with MiWay. Graysmill Gait has recently sold out.
