Constructing Rutherford Castle

Work is complete on a new housing development in West Linton that will bring luxurious living to a desirable area of Scotland.

Rutherford Castle is an exclusive ten-house development located alongside West Linton Golf Club. The site comprises a mixture of six brand new three and four-bedroom detached houses, alongside four existing properties that have been converted into modern homes.

The houses are stone-built structures set around a village green, with each property including such notable features as luxury en-suite bedrooms, a dining room, utility room, study, kitchen and landscaped gardens. An additional highlight for a number of the houses is the uninterrupted view of the greens that form part of the 120-year old golf course.

Manor Kingdom was the main contractor on the development and completed the project on behalf of Bett Homes Scotland. Together the two companies have successfully created a small rural community that is situated a short commutable distance to Edinburgh. The project has already caught the eye of many in the industry and recently received the Gold Award for Best Luxury Development at the What House 2011 awards.

Rutherford Castle has proved so popular that by the end of 2011 only two of the ten properties remained unsold. Indeed, only the four-bedroom Diplomat and the three-bedroom Linton did not have an owner.

Following the completion of the Rutherford Castle project, Bett Homes Scotland is continuing to develop its land holdings portfolio and currently has additional developments under construction throughout Scotland. These developments include the Devonshire Row project in the West End of Glasgow, 99 new homes at Leddach Grange in Elrick, and 39 homes at Sidlaw Fields in Dundee.

Bett Homes’ Managing Director, Norman Yardley, said:

“The success of our current land programme is a testament to Bett Homes’ commitment to growth and our focussed attention in the areas across Scotland where our customers are seeking the delivery of high quality new homes.

“We have already enjoyed considerable success since launching these new developments and with work due to start soon on several more projects during the coming months we expect this trend to continue.

“Our plans going forward are to continue to increase the extent of our geographical and market coverage to meet the requirements of our customers in Scotland.”
