Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has announced a development of 51 new homes coming soon to Broomhouse as part of the open space of the former Glasgow Zoo. Taylor Wimpey at Broomhouse will offer an impressive mix of two, three and four bedroom family homes that aims to create a stylish balance of family living that’s within easy reach of both Baillieston and Uddingston.

Situated off Muirhead Road, the development will boast an impressive collection of new homes that delivers on Taylor Wimpey’s renowned craftsmanship, style and quality. And with an incredible choice of nine styles of homes from Taylor Wimpey’s ‘Scotland 2’ range, Taylor Wimpey at Broomhouse has a style of new home to suit a wide range of buyers. Prices in the first release are expected to start from around £187,000 for a three bedroom semi-detached Chalmers 2.

From a location perspective, Taylor Wimpey at Broomhouse ticks all the boxes. Locally buyers will enjoy the benefit of good local amenities including shops and restaurants, plus the nearby Birkenshaw Retail Park and The Glasgow Fort each offer a mix of shops and entertainment.

There’s also a wealth of activities to keep the family amused and nights out will be fun at the local Showcase Cinema and Hollywood Bowl. There’s also a wide choice of activities to keep everyone healthy at Barrbridge Leisure Centre or the nearby DW Sports Fitness Club, and the impressive choice of schools nearby makes this a popular location for families looking for their next move.

The development is also perfectly situated to offer easy access to the Seven Lochs Wetland Park which is destined to be Scotland’s largest urban nature park where visitors can enjoy 20 sq km of lochs, parks, nature reserves and woodlands that are situated between Glasgow and Coatbridge.

The area also has exceptional transport links into Glasgow and beyond. The M8, M73 and M74 motorways are within minutes of Baillieston ensuring that most of Scotland’s central belt is within easy commuting distance, plus the local railway stations at Baillieston and Uddingston offer regular services into Glasgow making this development an obvious choice for commuters or buyers looking to maximise their budgets by moving outwith the city centre of Glasgow.

Buyers can get help to get on the move with one of Taylor Wimpey’s buyer incentives such as Easymover, part-exchange, or the Scottish Government supported Help to Buy (Scotland) initiative – each scheme aiming to make the process of buying a new home as easy and stress-free as possible.

Susan McDonald, sales manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland adds: “Our development of two, three and four bedroom homes at Broomhouse will offer a great choice of new homes for buyers to choose from regardless of where they are on the property ladder. Plus, there’s always a helping hand available for buyers with our range of incentives which are designed to help people to get on the move more easily which offers buyers a fresh start in a new dream home, whatever their circumstances. We hope to launch this development around the beginning of June.”
