The £20m development is situated in Wallyford, on the outskirts of the coastal town of Musselburgh. The homes will be built as part of a wider masterplan development at Wallyford Farm and St Clements Wells Farm.
Cruden is building 41 new homes for private sale and a further 60 affordable homes, including 45 units for social rent and 15 for mid-market rent, on behalf of Dunedin Canmore Housing Association.
The 7.39-acre development, which has been designed by EMA Architects and engineered by Will Rudd Davidson, will comprise a range of homes including one- and two- bedroom cottage flats and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses in a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached styles.
The first affordable homes are expected to be delivered in summer 2022, with first completions of the private homes programmed for early 2023.
Steven Simpson, managing director of Cruden Homes (East) said: “We are pleased to start work at this landmark development in Wallyford. Both private and affordable homes are in such high demand across the country, so bringing over 100 new homes to East Lothian is a highly-anticipated and welcome addition to our existing portfolio of new homes across the region. We have a long history of successfully working with Dunedin Canmore Housing Association and we will be supporting the local community by providing new jobs and work placements and working with local businesses.”
