£13m new homes development
Robertson unveils plans for historic house
Robertson Homes has unveiled a £13 million plan to complete the restoration of Gleann Mor House, the listed fire damaged building at its Westercraigs Development in Inverness.
It wants to create 26 luxury townhouses and 30 executive apartments in a development project thought to be one of the most complex in the city’s recent history.
The proposal for Gleann Mor House, built in 1864, was submitted just days after another Robertson Homes application to build 50 homes at Westercraigs. Together the projects amount to an investment of £20m.
Commenting on the Gleann Mor House project, John Murphy, managing director of Robertson Homes, said: “We expect significant demand, particularly as we near completion of the West Link Road, dramatically improving road connectivity to the area.”
The first phase of the restoration was completed in 2011. Robertson Homes has since reconfigured its plans to replace many apartments with townhouses, maximising open space and landscaped gardens.
Mr Murphy addd: “Our plans are to create a sustainable semi-rural community at Westercraigs, including play facilities, green space and community facilities. We are also moving forward with plans to upgrade the link road to the A82.”
