Coastal homes at Longniddry on the crest of a wave after award win

Posted: 3rd October 2023


Award-winning developer Cruden Homes and leading social enterprise, Places for People, scooped the top ‘Development of the Year’ title at the Herald Property Awards 2023. The annual awards ceremony took place on Thursday 28 September at the Doubletree by Hilton Glasgow Central, bringing leading property experts from across Scotland together to shine a light on the most impressive projects that have contributed to the industry over the past year.

Revealed as ‘Development of the Year’, Longniddry Village in East Lothian comprises a range of two- to five- bed high quality homes expertly designed for flexible family living.

Quietly placed in the heart of Longniddry’s coastal village community, the new homes offer calm rural living within close proximity of Edinburgh’s thriving city centre. Longniddry Village has been praised for its use of traditional design features uniquely crafted to embrace the distinctive village life that surrounds it, paired with contemporary interiors with a classic twist that perfectly mirror the needs of modern homeowners.

Hazel Davies, Sales and Marketing Director of Cruden Homes, said: “Longniddry Village is exemplary of our commitment to building homes with people at their heart. This unique neighbourhood not only provides unique, quality homes, but a place where families and homeowners can grow together and build a fulfilling life amongst East Lothian’s welcoming, close-knit community.

“We’re honoured to have our achievements recognised by the judges and look forward to continuing to add community value through our pipeline of developments in the coming year.”

Allison Sutherland, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Scotland at Places for People, said: “Longniddry Village is a unique development and community that we are incredibly proud of, this award is a testament to the development.

“Longniddry Village is a great example of the benefits of working closely in partnership with organisations who have a shared vision of creating thriving communities. For us, creating homes where community matters – communities with social and sustainable values at their core – is our goal. With Cruden Homes, we have been able to create incredible places for people to call home and give them the opportunity to become part of a vibrant and prosperous local community.”
