Caer Amon Detached Houses

The 22 detached villas at Caer Amon set the tone for our most ambitious development to date in terms of its architectural vision, size and scope. This contemporary take on Scottish vernacular architecture, designed by Richard Murphy Architects, extended over 5 acres and won several national awards.

Split into a series of intimate cul-de-sacs, the front of the villas borrow from a Scots baronial style, with turreted stairwells complete slit windows. This provides a very private elevation to the street, and the extensive gardens are surrounded by white rendered walls. To the rear however, large patio doors allow light to flow in to the public rooms and can be opened wide to extend the living space during the summer months.

While the design aesthetic may borrow from historical design details, the interpretation and implementation is strictly modern. The white walls echo the whitewashed cottages at Cramond harbour, but the hardwearing Sto polymer-based render used has excellent colour retention, which when added to the milled aluminium gutters and downpipes, and the powder-coated aluminium window frames, significantly reduces the need for ongoing maintenance. Interiors are light and spacious and benefit from zoned underfloor heating and excellent insulation which makes the homes very energy efficient.
