Neo-Georgian Grandhome vision takes shape

Aboyne-based housebuilder AJC Homes has released one of the first batches of housing at Grandhome - a 7,000 home community at Bridge of Don, Aberdeen.

Part of the first planned neighbourhood of 600 homes the Georgian-style properties will each have timber-framed windows and doors, iron railings and traditional hauling.

Laura Webster, sales and marketing manager at AJC Homes, said: “Traditionally we are known for building properties in the countryside and small towns however we are very excited to launch our new city homes at Grandhome.
 
“With a range of house types to choose from and the benefits of the emerging Grandhome community, including parks and community space as well as shops, cafes and schools in the future, this is an opportunity to settle in a new build home with all of the benefits and atmosphere of village life.”

The Grandhome masterplan was drawn up by Brooks Murray Architects.

Looks like a row of council houses.

Oh and it looks like Aberdeen has just snuck in to try and wrestle the terrible Architecture award from Glasgow before the end of 2019! Oh no - can Glasgow steal it back with more turgid dross?!

This is NOT Georgian, so why pretend. It is pastiche with very little design from this era. It is an opportunity lost, especially given the availability of scares resources such as land!

Harsh Behnam. It clearly has Georgian concrete tiles, Georgian UPVC windows and fake Georgian Chimneys'....Looks pretty authentic to me.

Timber windows but concrete roof tiles is a strange decision.
