The first new homes go on sale at Dargavel Village

The first release of new homes in the multi-million pound development of Dargavel Village, Bishopton in Renfrewshire are now on sale from two new sales information centres accessed off the recently completed North Access Road.

With queues of eager buyers this weekend at both developments, sales of new homes are off to an impressive start with eight new homes sold within the first few hours.

First in the Taylor Wimpey queue was Alison Pollok and Adam Goodall of Bishopton who camped out from 5pm on Friday (18 January) to claim their new Taylor Wimpey home:

“We’re excited about buying a new family home but were apprehensive about sleeping overnight.  The temperature was -1 and then got down to -8 with the wind chill.  We have already picked our plot and are delighted not to have to compromise.”

First buyer for Persimmon Homes was Julie Dempsey of Erskine: “This is the third time that I’ve bought a brand new home, but I last moved 14 years ago.  I need more room for the kids and I will be moving back ‘home’ to Bishopton so will be near my parents and both of my best friends.”

Persimmon Homes (including its exclusive Charles Church range) and Taylor Wimpey – have launched a wide choice of three, four and five bedroom family homes for sale as the vision of the master-plan for this area takes another major step forward.  A further release of 89 four and five bedroom detached family homes by CALA is coming soon.

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland’s first development in Dargavel Village, Bishopton will provide 147 new homes comprising a range of three, four and five bedroom houses in a variety of styles and sizes which will appeal to a wide range of buyers considering a move to this easily accessible, rural location.  Prices start from £170,000 for the three bedroom semi detached Balfour up to £290,000 for the four bedroom detached Stewart 2.

Each of the housebuilders’ individual developments benefits from a design brief that offers residents interesting street scenes and detailed landscaping along with specific tree-planting around character areas that will be reflected at key points across the wider development as the vision for the master-plan unfolds.

The launch of the residential housing in phase one builds on an investment of £32 million by BAE Systems which focused on land clearance, the construction of primary access roads and the installation of essential utilities.

Completion of the North Access Road at the end of 2012, the provision of services and the opening of two marketing suites demonstrates just how much advancement is being made at Dargavel Village as Lynda Johnstone, Bishopton Project Director for BAE Systems adds: “Significant progress has been made on the site over the last few months with a number of key milestones reached.

“In the coming weeks, the landscape will change considerably once again as we move into the exciting stage of house building and I’m looking forward to seeing first hand, the ongoing transformation of the area as our vision takes another step closer to becoming a reality.”
