A perfect fit in Anniesland

5th November 2007 Print
A perfect fit in Anniesland When Jennifer Gill decided it was time to downsize, Redrow had just what she was looking for with its Route 1 West development in Anniesland, Glasgow. Ideally located just a short distance from the centre of this bustling cosmopolitan city, Route 1 West ticked every box of what Jennifer’s new home should be.

Jennifer, a retired nursery nurse says:

“Following my retirement and the death of my husband I decided it was time for a fresh start. I previously lived in Milngavie in a detached home that was proving to be too big for just myself, so I decided it would be best to downsize to a smaller property.

“When I viewed my apartment at Route 1 West, I had never thought of living in a single-storey home but I really liked the apartment and how spacious it was. Also, although it was modern, light and airy I knew it would also be a cosy and comfortable place to live.”

The location of Route 1 West was also a big selling point for Jennifer, who enjoys ballroom dancing and walking in her spare time.

She continues: “Since retiring, I have obviously had a lot of spare time on my hands and to utilise this fully I wanted to live within easy access to the city centre so I could conveniently arrange to meet friends. Also, the development is reasonably close to Milngavie where many of my friends still live so I am never too far away for people to visit.”

Diana Newton, sales and marketing director for Redrow (Scotland) says:

“The apartments at Route 1 West make an ideal home for many reasons – they’re newly built so there’s no need to worry about renovations, repairs or home improvements; all come with a high level of specification and stylish design and they offer fantastic value for money in terms of space and location.

Far from being limited to downsizers, however, Route 1 West is also perfect for a wide range of purchasers, including first time buyers, professional people working in the city centre, parents investing for their student offspring, friends sharing and even families. It’s a contemporary development consisting of two and three-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom townhouses, with nearby Anniesland train station offering journey times to Glasgow Queen Street of less than 15 minutes.

There’s superb access to the trendy and bustling West End with its fashionable collection of global cuisine, trendy bars and traditional pubs centred around Byres Road and there is also the rural oasis of the beautiful Botanical Gardens, which boast stunning Victorian glasshouses within eight acres of relaxing parkland.

Further afield, Loch Lomond, Aberfoyle and the Trossachs are easily accessible by road for the ultimate countryside escape.

Available homes include three-bedroom apartments from £217,000 and four-bedroom townhouses with two en-suites and an integral single garage, priced from £299,995
