Ochil Hills homes offer air, light and altitude to occupants

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.

There something (a few things) not quite right with this scheme..the shallow roof pitch, the busy elevational composition and clunky rainwater goods all make it feel a bit pants. Looks a bit council pre-fab...certainly not upmarket or in anyway memorable.

It does look very 'Balornock' now you say that...

‘Each positioned to enjoy a different aspect’... doesn't every house within a development site have a different view?
Yet more tiresome BS from the architecture community

I think this looks like an attractive, well considered scheme. #4; yes, negative as usual. Given the quality of most housing / houses proposals this looks good to me.
