Miller Homes at Shawfair
View Full development
A new home. The start of a whole new chapter for you and your family. And for us, the part of our job where bricks and mortar becomes a place filled with activity and dreams and fun and love. We put a huge amount of care into the houses we build, but the story’s not finished until we match them up with the right people. So, once you’ve chosen a Miller home, we’ll do everything we can to make the rest of the process easy, even enjoyable. From the moment you make your decision until you’ve settled happily in, we’ll be there to help.
Miller Homes at Shawfair is part of a major initiative designed to allow an entirely new community to grow and flourish. Modern, high quality homes will be supported by new schools, leisure facilities,shops, offices and extensive landscaped green spaces, ready to mature into a thriving place where people can live, learn, work and play. Its semi-rural setting brings an air of country living to the edge of the capital, and its excellent transport links include a railway station and a network of foot and cycle paths. Adhering to the highest principles of sustainability as well as relaxed, safe family living one of the Project Partners is the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation. Shawfair is not only the largest urban expansion programme to date in Edinburgh and Midlothian, it sets the benchmark for premium quality residential planning.
