New homes buyers may be surprised at property prices in Glasgow

Posted 26 November 2013

Scotland's largest city has it all from scenic parks and open spaces to state of the art leisure facilities, a huge number of high street and independent stores and pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. Buyers looking to find a new home in Glasgow might be surprised at how inexpensive the city can be to live in. This is reflected in the prices of the new-build housing market.

Situated in the Carntyne area of the city, Eastfields is a Bellway Homes development of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes from £64,995 to £149,995. Commuters will find the local railway station a short walk from the site and the city centre is under 10 minutes away by train. The ‘Jura' house type is on the market from £139,995 and is set over three storeys. A lounge, breakfasting kitchen and cloakroom comprise the ground floor while upstairs contains two bedrooms and a family bathroom. A master bedroom with en suite completes the top level.

Richmond Gate is a Bett Homes development in the Oatlands area on the south bank of the River Clyde. The site boasts a collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments as well as two-, three- and four-bedroom houses. First-time buyers might be particularly interested in the ‘Lawrie' apartment type, which costs £107,995 and comprises an open-plan living room and kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Only three properties currently remain available at The Grange, a Taylor Wimpey development in Summerston. The scheme is close to the lively West End but also benefits from being on the border of East Dunbartonshire for those who enjoy having the best of both worlds. Prices here start from £209,995 for the ‘Fairbairn' house type, which includes a lounge, formal dining room, breakfasting kitchen, downstairs WC, master bedroom with en suite, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a garage.

A selection of three- and four-bedroom properties is offered at Persimmon Homes' development The Glen in the Garthamlock area of the city. The site is close to the Glasgow Fort Retail Park as well as a new leisure pool that is great for kids and also includes a health suite for the adults. Easy access to junction 10 of the M8 motorway makes life easy for commuters. Prices on available properties start at £144,995 for a semi-detached three-bedroom home with integral garage.

Perfect for students and young professionals, Ogilvie Homes has a range of studio and one-bedroom properties for sale at its Almandine Apartments site. Located in Garnethill in the city centre, the development is close to Glasgow School of Art and Sauchiehall Street with its array of shops, bars and restaurants. One-bedroom apartments are available from £124,950 and feature a semi-open-plan kitchen and living area with balcony and a wet room.
