Situated on the former derelict site of Auchinraith Primary School in Blantyre and developed on behalf of Clyde Valley Housing Association, Lovell’s 38 unit affordable housing scheme has been shortlisted in the Small Affordable Housing Development (social rent) category of the 12th annual Scottish Home Awards, alongside eight other finalists. Featuring attractive landscaping to further enhance the streetscape, the Harthill development includes a variety of differing property designs to ensure a mix of occupants from single persons to families, providing an integrated community.
Lovell also features amongst a shortlist of seven finalists in the Show Home of the Year (Selling price over £400k) category for its Argyll luxury show home at the Lochside Grange development in the Fife coastal village of Kinghorn. Spanning 209 square metres and set within lush landscaped gardens, the Argyll is an impressively spacious five-bedroom detached home that aims to be both aspirational and comfortable.
Founded in 2007 to recognise excellence in the Scottish housebuilding industry, the Scottish Home Awards are an independent awards programme that promotes excellence in new build housing. The winners of this year’s awards are due to be announced at a special ceremony at the Glasgow Central DoubleTree Hilton Hotel on Thursday, 13th June.
Lovell previously won the Development of the Year (age exclusive) award at the 2017 Scottish Home Awards for a new development of 29 amenity flats specifically designed for rent for the over 55 age group, located at Fernan Gardens in the Shettleston area of Glasgow.
Commenting on the 2019 Scottish Home Awards shortlist, Kevin McColgan, Lovell Scotland managing director said:
“We’re delighted to be featuring among the finalists for this year’s prestigious Scottish Home Awards. To have been shortlisted in two very different categories demonstrates the huge variety of work Lovell is currently undertaking across Scotland. Whether working in partnership with Clyde Valley Housing Association to create an exciting range of new affordable homes in South Lanarkshire or showcasing our design capabilities by building a unique and aspirational show home at our Lochside Grange development in Fife, Lovell continues to strive for excellence in everything we do.”
