Ochil Hills homes offer air, light and altitude to occupants
January 26 2021
Athron Hill Development Company has commenced work on 11 hillside homes set within 150-acres of woodland to north-west of Milnathort, Perthshire, famed for its invigorating qualities of air and altitude.
Originally home to the Ochil Hills Sanatorium (demolished in 2001) the land will host a collection of individual homes designed by Fraser/Livingston Architects, each positioned to enjoy a different aspect of the hill.
Each upmarket residence will include a split-level kitchen, dining and lounge area with wraparound windows as well as a separate home working studio, garage and cinema.
Anthron Hill director Dan Multon said: “The Victorians certainly understood the power of extraordinary locations on our health and wellbeing – and the homes here will be surrounded by the same dramatic landscape and features that drew people out a century and more ago.
“Not only will buyers be getting a beautiful family home, they’ll also be able to access the wider site of private woodlands, hillwalking trails, and a community orchard which are all included in our plans.”
The development will be delivered by Marshall Construction W&J Groundworks and Claymore Timber Frames.
