An exclusive collection of just nine detached and semi-detached homes

Our new development at Lockhart Woods is an exclusive collection of just nine detached and semi-detached homes, located on the former site of the Craiglockhart radio station base, on the edge of Edinburgh’s leafy Morningside.

The development has been designed to make the most of the unique topography of the site, with some of the properties reaching to three stories, with balconies and terraces incorporated to make the maximum use of space and light. The site is currently bordered by mature trees, all of which will remain in place.

Our Homes

The nine homes at this new development will comprise three detached and six semi-detached homes; the detached properties will have 4 or 5 bedrooms, and the semi-detached 3 bedrooms. The homes range in height from 2 to 3 storeys, with the 3 storey properties designed to complement and fit within the topography of the site.

The properties will be brand new house types, of a contemporary design with pitched roofs, and materials including reconstituted stone and timber. Balconies and terraces have been included to the designs to increase the amount of space available.

About Developer

The founders of our Company had been housebuilders during Victoria's long reign. They were however engaged not just narrowly in construction but were importers of the raw material required for their business.

By the early 1900's, the Mactaggarts and Mickels had come together and with others, who would later establish their own shorter lived building companies, were constructing tenements in the West End of Glasgow. They had also built in London's Portland Place but their Glasgow tenements are now locally recognised as the pinnacle of achievement in tenemental construction.

The opportunities offered by the government to be involved in a housing boom following the First World War were not missed. In the four years from 1922, in Glasgow and in Lanarkshire, the Mactaggarts and Mickels in partnership built over 3000 houses for local authorities before registering as a Limited company in 1926.

The years from 1939 to 1945 were not uneventful and were occupied with work for the war effort. Also, in 1943 the Mactaggarts severed their connection with the Company and since that time Mactaggart & Mickel Limited has become entirely a concern of the Mickel family.

We support many local groups and institutions. Major recent events in which we have been involved were Glasgow's Garden Festival where we designed the 'Broom Milk Bar' as our contribution. During the Year of Culture a number of items from our archive were exhibited at 'Glasgow's Glasgow'.

The family and personal links we have forged grow ever stronger and we take pride in the long service of our workforce. At a time when other builders sub-contract we prefer to employ tradesmen whom we know and who, in turn, know our methods and standards.

The Company strives by its own efforts to maintain its place as the local housebuilder with the highest reputation for quality and service to customers, and have several awards for design and quality from the NHBC to the What House Gold Awards for the best luxury development in Britain.

We at Mactaggart & Mickel firmly believe that our innate ability to do things is well founded in our sound experience and achievements in house building which has patently defied detrimental change. Indeed the story of Mactaggart & Mickel is a true testament to innovation and tradition.
