New Residents Move Into Transformed Derelict Building in Stonehaven

The renovation of Eden Manor, a former north-east care home is now complete with new residents moving in throughout November. The derelict property has been transformed into five apartments and ten single storey terraced homes which were aimed at buyers over fifty.

Fotheringham Homes worked with John D Crawford Architects on the renovation project which has beautifully restored the main features of the abandoned C-listed building into modern homes.

The main building itself has retained many of the original features such as the staircase, bay windows and masonry. While stylish contemporary bathrooms and kitchens from Laings of Inverurie feature throughout the properties and heated flooring adds an extra luxurious finish.



The dilapidated extension to the rear of the building was removed to create space for ten modern homes built around a courtyard area. Knowing that being part of a community can have a positive impact on health, our designs were created to embrace this while still maintaining resident privacy.

Speaking with new resident Margaret Paley she explained “I was instantly attracted to its beautiful setting, easy maintenance and modern appearance. Having lived locally since I was married, Eden Manor has allowed me to downsize easily without having to go any further into town.

I was nervous about moving, however I have been really surprised at how quickly I have settled in. The team at Fotheringham Homes have been fantastic throughout the process, accommodating any of my requests, even changing a door position!”


Michael Fotheringham, Director of Fotheringham Homes commented:

“When we took on the development we had a sense of excitement around the project due to the level of interest on social media. Throughout the renovation, we have shared updates and ‘sneak peeks’ and have enjoyed seeing people respond, sharing their own stories and history of the building.

We are extremely proud to see the impact we have made by restoring Eden Manor, not only for the residents moving in but also their families and the local community surrounding it.”

There are two units left at Eden Manor, available at a fixed price. For more information visit our developments page here.
