The development, which breathes new life into a derelict site and contributes to the local economy, drew an array of favourable comments from the judges.
Well-connected to existing walking and cycling routes, with the brick apartments drawing inspiration from the original mill buildings and contrasted with well-detailed and rendered homes, the judges felt it was an outstanding example of place-making where respect for the tranquillity of the setting had been achieved through careful design.
Anne Marie Britton, Sales and Marketing Director for Scotland, said:
“This is a fantastic achievement. The Homes for Scotland Awards are extremely important to the housing market in Scotland, so to be successful is a great honour.
“Creating communities and building homes for people to cherish for years are some of the most important things we do and this awards confirms that.”
Dalmore Mill, once complete, will contain a mix of one to four bedroom homes. The development is ideal for young couples, families and downsizers and is only nine miles from Edinburgh city centre.
