Perth housebuilders Stephen have won a prestigious award for their role in what will ultimately become Scotland’s largest new town.
The family firm was presented with the ‘Private Development of the Year’ (small) Commendation at the Homes for Scotland Awards 2018.
The Commendation, in respect of 20 cottages they are creating at Chapelton, Aberdeenshire, was presented at the HFS Annual Lunch in Edinburgh on Friday 25 May 2018.
The two and three bedroom semi and detached cottages set in attractive courtyards complement the firm’s range of two to six bedroom homes, many of which are already occupied.
John Stephen, Managing Director said, “We are absolutely delighted and proud to receive this Commendation for the cottages we are creating at Chapelton. It’s fantastic to see such interest in them since being added to the town’s street scene, with ten reserved off plan in the first few months. Both existing residents and visitors to the development routinely comment on how versatile our homes are, while presenting them with the ideal lifestyle solution.”
Enhancing the immediate local area, access to the courtyards has been designed to be private, with hidden parking while still allowing open views to the courtyards from the adjacent residential street. The landscape design of each south facing courtyard has been given special attention to give them their own individual charm and character providing seasonal interest and intimate seating areas.
The Ardwall cottage viewhome is open from Thursday to Sunday, from midday until 4.30pm.
