Roll up for the great­est show on turf

TWO weeks ago the search be­gan for this year’s fi­nal­ists in The Her­ald Prop­erty Awards for Scot­land and over the com­ing months the finest new homes across the coun­try will come un­der close scru­tiny as the com­pe­ti­tion heats up. Amongst the many sought-after awards at stake are those for Best Lux­ury Home for de­vel­op­ers build­ing more than 50 units per year and Best Show Home.

Last year Cala Homes (West) won in the Best Lux­ury Home cat­e­gory with The West­brook, a pre­mium home with four pub­lic rooms, five bed­rooms, a gal­leried land­ing and sep­a­rate three-car garage with a fur­ther bed­room and a recre­ation room above it.

The West­brook scored very highly with the judges, who were impressed with the gen­er­ous space on of­fer and the high qual­ity of the fin­ishes

Once again this year, the Best Lux­ury Home cat­e­gory will be sponsored by Ross & Lid­dell, one of Scot­land’s long­est-es­tab­lished prop­erty man­age­ment com­pa­nies. To­day Ross & Lid­dell are also let­ting agents; em­ploy­ing a team of char­tered build­ing sur­vey­ors and pro­vid­ing prop­erty man­age­ment and sur­vey­ing ser­vices to the com­mer­cial as well as the res­i­den­tial sec­tor.

Di­rec­tor Brian Ful­ton says: “The prop­erty mar­ket re­mains ex­tremely buoy­ant, in­clud­ing the lux­ury homes sec­tor, with many sites sell­ing off plan as soon as ad­ver­tis­ing boards are erected. Builders and de­vel­op­ers, large and small, are ac­tively work­ing on many projects some of which are lux­ury and be­spoke, show­ing huge con­fi­dence in this seg­ment of the mar­ket. This con­fi­dence is cer­tainly borne out by the level of prop­erty man­age­ment en­quires we are re­ceiv­ing.”

One way in which de­vel­op­ers em­pha­sise the qual­ity and ver­sa­til­ity of their prod­ucts is with a beau­ti­fully de­signed show home and last year Miller Homes won the Best Show Home award with its He­riot prop­erty at Polofields.

Here the in­te­rior styling was com­pleted with the help of Eileen Kes­son from En­vi­sion and that show home, which had a price tag of £845,000, has now been sold.

Neil Gaffney, Sales & Mar­ket­ing Di­rec­tor, Miller Homes Scot­land, said: “We were de­lighted to win the Best Show Home of the Year Award for our beau­ti­ful He­riot show home at Polofields. To win such a pres­ti­gious award is a tes­ta­ment to the out­stand­ing fin­ish of this home and the hard and ded­i­ca­tion of our en­tire team.”

That award was sponsored by Daw, an in­dus­try-lead­ing provider of mar­ket­ing so­lu­tions. It is the firm’s sig­nage that fea­tures across mul­ti­ple de­vel­op­ment sites in Scot­land and they have been in­volved with The Her­ald Prop­erty Awards since these were first launched 11 years ago.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Gary Daw, says: “A well-de­signed show home is an es­sen­tial mar­ket­ing tool for de­vel­op­ers and we are de­lighted once again to spon­sor this award.”
