The Gardens, Crathes, NHBC Awards
Offering inspiring views of the picturesque River Dee and surrounding countryside, The Gardens at Crathes is the perfect retreat for Aberdeen’s commuters and their families.

Crathes is a well established, picturesque countryside village, nestled amongst beautiful sites such as the famous Crathes Castle and its many scenic woodland walks. If you are looking for country living, yet with all the amenities you could ever want just a short drive away, then look no further.
The Gardens at Crathes by Stewart Milne Homes is the first newly built development to come to Crathes, offering tranquil country living with a selection of spacious detached family homes. Each home has its own generous amount of space and outlook, with many overlooking the countryside surrounding the development, or out towards the River Dee.

The Gardens at Crathes is located just south of the affluent, picturesque village of Crathes, nestled amidst scenic Aberdeenshire close to the majestic River Dee. As you explore your new home you can enjoy fantastic views of the hills along the Dee valley and into the Cairngorms mountain range. Within this area of sublime natural beauty you’ll find a variety of countryside walks, cycle tracks and nature trails.

A short drive away, the town of Banchory has everything you could want from a new community. This town centre is home to an abundance of local amenities like cafés, restaurants, boutique shops and award winning schools in the nearby vicinity, which makes this highly sought after town ideal for growing families.

Works began on The Gardens at Crathes development in August of 2014, and by 2017 there will be 35 luxury detached homes as well as ten terraced houses. Thus far, Stewart Milne Homes have completed 11 plots as well as the infrastructure for the remaining plots. The housing company are now working to complete the remaining plots.

The exterior finish of the homes comprises K-Rend wet dash and Timber Larch Cladding. The homes come complete with spacious gardens and private driveways; the site also has a children’s play area. Two of the house-types are bespoke to the Crathes development, aptly names The Crathes, a 4 bedroom detached home and The Cramond, a five bedroom detached family home; and come finished in an eye-catching style. Each home has been designed with spacious, large and flexible living spaces which can be adapted to suit the home owner’s requirements.

Such is the success of The Gardens at Crathes, site manager Greg Thompson has been awarded an NHBC Pride in the Job Award, alongside an NHBC Health and Safety commendation for his efforts in maintaining an exceptionally high standard of health and safety by reinforcing best practice on the site.

Speaking to Premier Construction Greg said:

“It’s an honour to be recognised by the NHBC and given a Pride in the Job award, to be short-listed from 15,000 site managers and go through the rigorous judging procedure during the past 12 months is a great achievement for myself and for all of our employed tradesmen and subcontractors. The extended team have worked exceptionally hard on this project, and to be nationally recognised for the quality of the workmanship, design and construction showing meticulous attention to detail at every stage of the process. We also received a Highly Commended award from NHBC for Health & Safety on site – being rewarded twice for our efforts in a short period has been fantastic.”
