Glasgow local makes ‘best ever decision’ after moving to award-winning…
A CITY DWELLER has found his perfect home after a lockdown realisation sent him searching for green space.
38-year-old, Grant McKenna moved from his flat in Glasgow city centre to Estates’ Calderwood Village development in Coatbridge, after the pandemic left him longing for a garden he and his Yorkshire Terrier Charlie could enjoy.
Despite his love for his home city, Grant decided it was time to move to a bigger home in more rural surroundings, while maintaining an easy commute to and from his alternating offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The three bedroom semi-detached Brodie at Calderwood Village offered Grant and Charlie the ideal home in expansive surroundings with plenty of green space with great connectivity to the central belt.
Grant, who works as a business development manager, said: “Dundas Estates is a developer I am familiar with; but I didn’t know a lot about its development Calderwood Village before I spoke to the sales manager Gail. She talked me by the site, and already took me on a excursion around the development when I came to visit.
“It was a straightforward course of action, Gail was very up front and honest with me and so I knew exactly what my position would be and what I could provide at the development.”
With links to the M8, M74, M73 and easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and the Central belt, Calderwood Village is in the ideal location for working professionals. For those without a car, commuting can be easy, with Whifflet aim stop a five minute walk away, providing direct links to central Glasgow and a bus stop at the entrance to the development.
Buyers are approximately a 20-minute excursion from Drumpellier Country Park, which spans 500 acres of parkland, woodland, lochs, with cafes and family facilities, an ideal space for parents and children to relax and unwind.
There are a large number of local amenities on its doorstep including a selection of well-performing schools and nurseries, local shops in addition as the nearby retail park and town centre which are within walking distance.
Grant additional: “I only moved in a little while ago so I haven’t had a chance to get to know all my neighbours, but already it feels like I have arrived in a proper community.
“It doesn’t feel like a standard new build – the layout of the home makes it extremely inviting. I personally love the open plan kitchen diner, it is perfect for hosting large groups and it has to be my favourite part of the house.
“There’s loads of green space too – which is perfect for Charlie. It feels like we’re living in the countryside.”
Interested buyers are being urged to act now as only a few final homes keep at the award-winning housing development.
There are two three-bedroom semi-detached homes left at Calderwood Village, all of which boast en-suite bathrooms and garden space.
