Woodcroft is a joint venture development between Queensberry Properties, a partnership between Cruden Homes (East) and Buccleuch Property, and Telereal Trillium who own the site and obtained detailed planning consent for the development.
Occupying an exceptional four acre landscaped site in The Grange, one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious residential addresses, Woodcroft comprises 24 luxury three-storey townhouses and 57 executive apartments, including a number of impressive penthouses.
The Homes for Scotland Annual Awards were introduced in 2003 and designed to showcase the sector's achievements in building homes that meet a diverse set of needs and aspirations.
The awards were presented in front of a record 1,100-strong crowd, the largest industry gathering of its type, at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on 20 May 2016.
Woodcroft, Edinburgh received the Best Private Development of the Year award (medium 26-99 units).
Commenting on the award, Kareen Davidson, chair of the independent judging panel, said: "Delivered through an innovative joint venture, the judges thought Woodcroft was an exemplary project. From the overall design to internal layouts and customer care, a focus on attention to detail has resulted in a highly impressive development. A strong place making and design ethos, together with attractive and high quality materials and workmanship, are evident throughout the site. This has resulted in strong sales and a commercially successful outcome which has continued through each phase of site development."
Homes for Scotland is the voice of the home building industry in Scotland, representing some 200 companies and organisations which together deliver 95% of new homes built for sale each year and a significant proportion of affordable housing. The awards underpin Homes for Scotland’s work by addressing the challenges which impact the industry’s ability to deliver the many thousands of new homes Scotland desperately needs.
Nigel Reid, Senior Development Manager at Telereal Trillium accepted the award on behalf of the group.
