Kirkwood Homes to build in Aberdeen’s newest town

1st August 2017

Kirkwood Homes is set to acquire one of several packages of land and add to the already flourishing community which is evolving at Countesswells.

Countesswells Development Limited (CDL) has revealed that Kirkwood Homes will be the second developer, after Stewart Milne Homes, to commence construction on site.

Stewart Milne Homes is currently building two, three and four bedroom family homes with the first residents having moved into Regency Place in the first neighbourhood.

Under a deal, which signals a return in confidence in the Aberdeen housing market, Kirkwood Homes will build around 57 homes. These new homes will range from two bed apartments to four bed detached homes.

Allan McGregor, project director for CDL, said: “The land packages available at Countesswells present very attractive opportunities for developers as they are fully serviced and capable of early development. This investment by Kirkwood signals both confidence in Countesswells and the wider Aberdeen market. We are pleased that Kirkwood, with its reputation for quality, will be working with us to deliver our vision for the new town to be one of the most attractive and sought-after destinations in the north of Scotland.”

Colin Crombie, managing director at Kirkwood Homes, added: “Countesswells represents a new and exciting way of delivering housing projects of scale and we are very excited to be working with the delivery team to bring Countesswells to life. We have been impressed with the clarity of vision and attention to detail that has been applied to both the masterplan and phase one. Given the prime location, on the western edge of Aberdeen, the connectivity and sense of place, this represents a very attractive proposition for Kirkwood.”
