Robertson Homes completes land acquisition ahead of new Bearsden development

ROBERTSON Homes has completed its acquisition of land for a new 47-property housing development in Bearsden, East Dunbartonshire.

The firm will construct four, five and six-bedroom detached homes for private sale at the 9.18-acre site situated at Bearsden Golf Club, which was allocated for housing within East Dunbartonshire Council’s Local Development Plan.

The site, to be called Thorn View, has an overall development value of £36.2 million and it is expected Robertson will contribute more than £420,000 towards local open space, play space and road infrastructure, along with the provision of affordable housing.

Work is expected to start in the coming weeks, with the first phase of homes tipped to be released for sale in early summer.

Sharon Spinelli, Robertson Homes’ sales and marketing director, said, “Thorn Road is one of the most prestigious streets in Bearsden and is perfectly located for our range of executive family homes complete with high end specification. We recently completed sales at Kilmardinny Gait, our first and hugely popular development in Bearsden, which proved there is high demand in the area for our Artistry range of homes which blend high specification Mystique brick elevations with contemporary, stylish and spacious open plan interiors.

“We will also be unveiling some brand new property designs at Thorn View tailored to those wanting maximum space, with homes ranging from 1,671 sq ft to an impressive 3,285 sq ft of living space. Each home will feature either a signature Robertson ‘Garden Room’ or offer additional living area with a suite at the top of the home in the ‘Grand’ designs.

“Bearsden is perfectly located for the commuter market, offers access to some of the country’s leading schools and a thriving centre with independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants which will make Thorn View one of Robertson’s highest profile and most sought-after developments. We respect the needs of the existing community and will work to minimise disruption during construction.”
