Bishopton development to get 197 new homes after land acquisition

THE Dargavel Village development in Bishopton is set to welcome 197 new properties after Stewart Milne Homes acquired a 16-acre neighbouring site.

The new site will comprise a mix of 135 one, three, four, five and six-bedroom homes, as well as 62 affordable housing units.

Set to launch this autumn, the 135 houses available for private sale are part of the new Stewart Milne Homes Villages range of housing designs. The housebuilder explained these homes have been designed to meet the changing needs and lifestyles of homeowners, combining ‘elegance and space with practicality’.

The development will also feature the affordable housing Forests range, said to have been ‘intricately designed’ with the consumer at the forefront to provide ‘high-quality living options for the whole family’. Dargavel Village is one of the first Stewart Milne Homes developments in the UK to feature this range.

Tony Williamson, sales and marketing director, Stewart Milne Homes Scotland, said, “We are excited to enhance our desirable Dargavel Village development which has proven to be a very popular site given its excellent location and cleverly designed homes. There is an acute demand for homes across Renfrewshire, and as an extension of the existing neighbourhood, the new homes available will help to future-proof housing supply and the local economy.

“We understand that homeowners are looking for high-quality homes that have strong connectivity with the wider community and beyond. As well as bolstering the housing stock, we are going to create a stunning tree and bush lined walkway to the community woodland park, which will also be backed onto by some of the new plots. This will truly enhance the development and create a safe, direct link for families to access local amenities – a place shaped to the way people live in the area.”

Group MD, Gerry More, added, “The acquisition of the Dargavel Village development comes at an exciting time for Stewart Milne Homes, having recently purchased land in Congleton, Cheshire, to deliver our exciting new Astbury Park development of 178 homes. These developments, with combined development value of £111m, are part of our ambitious pipeline of new site acquisitions as we eye significant growth opportunities across the UK.”
