Atrium Homes provides housing boost for New Farm Loch
Kilmarnock-based registered social landlord Atrium Homes has completed work on the remodelling of three 3-bedroom maisonettes to create six new 1-bedroom flats in Russell Court.
The near £0.5 million investment, delivered by Keepmoat and supported by over £250,000 of funding from the Scottish Government, enabled the local landlord to provide its first 1-bedroom flatted accommodation for let in New Farm Loch which proved to be very popular with applicants.
The level of work carried out internally is extensive, whilst externally the properties have been well insulated to make them easy and cheap to heat.
Jim O’Neill, chair of Atrium, said: “I am delighted that this development has proven a hit with the new residents. Although the original maisonettes were good sized homes they were no longer what families where looking for. The conversion has enabled us meet the needs of those waiting for smaller housing in the area.”
The first new tenant Mr McClure said: “I’m honestly really pleased with the property, it is the perfect size and very well presented.”
