If you want to enjoy a life free from the frenetic pace of the city, within the surrounds of a relaxing, semi-rural setting, yet benefit from being close to all its amenities – then a visit to the choice of apartments available at Bellway Homes’ Lairds Gate development is a must.

Situated on the former site of Newton Farm, Newton, on the edge of Cambuslang, Lairds Gate currently offers a number of beautifully presented one and two-bedroom apartments that have not only struck a chord with first time buyers, but also mature downsizers and for similar reasons – both are eager to take advantage of a competitively priced new home within such a highly accessible location.

Fraser Conn, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes, comments: “Newton is just six miles from Glasgow city centre and even closer to the surrounding towns of Hamilton, Blantyre and East Kilbride. The development has brought an influx of new buyers to the area, particularly our apartments. We are finding that the price range of these properties is such that young buyers can get on to the property ladder and more mature purchasers can also secure a new home and have a much more of their ‘nest-egg’ left over than they previously budgeted for.”

Further adding to the great location and practical pricing of the apartments is that each property benefits from a number of attractive features. From the ‘type A’ one-bedroom apartment, with its impressive open plan layout including lounge, kitchen and dining area, to the attractive ‘type D’ two-bedroom flat, which features a generous lounge/dining room, with two sets of French doors leading to Juliette balconies, a separate modern kitchen and an en-suite master bedroom, these homes have clearly been designed to suit a variety of lifestyles.

In addition to the choice of apartments available, Lairds Gate also offers a selection of several of the award-winning builder’s most popular house styles, in the form of three-bedroom semi-detached and detached properties, and four-bedroom detached villas, providing family buyers with a home that has plenty of growing space.

Only too aware of the different needs that buyers have, Bellway has a menu of options to ensure that a variety of buyers at Lairds Gate can choose an incentive that's just right for them. For first time buyers, there is the company’s hugely successful shared equity initiative ‘Sharp Start’ as well as ‘Helping Hand’ and ‘5% Deposit Paid’ – all geared to support those purchasing their first home. For house hunters faced with the prospect of selling an existing property, then ‘Express Mover’ or ‘Part Exhange’ are the ideal solutions.

Lairds Gate has bustling Cambuslang close to hand, which provides extensive local shopping outlets, several schools, a number of leisure facilities and two railway stations that offer a regular service to the city centre and across much of the central belt. Aside from good rail links, excellent road links also ensure that commuting to Glasgow and beyond is straightforward.

Prices for the apartments at Lairds Gate are currently released from £87,995. For further information on the development and the choice of support options currently available from Bellway Homes, visit the sales centre, open daily from 10am to 5pm, or visit
