The first phase of a new development of homes near Glasgow Fort has been unveiled.

Briar Homes Ltd is undertaking work on the Meadowood development in Garthamlock just seven miles from the city centre.

Described as an 'intimate' plot, the close-knit community has just 22 homes.

With generously sized three bedroom properties, the development is ideal for first-time buyers and upsizers. 

House types include attractive 1028 sq ft terraced and semi-detached properties and a detached villa, all with private rear gardens and parking.

Glasgow Times:

Designed by George Buchanan Architects to accommodate flexible family living, each home benefits from a spacious principal bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, large guest bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The lower floors provide a bright lounge and WC, and a spacious designer kitchen with an open-plan family area creates the social epicentre of the home. 

Plenty of designated storage space is also provided throughout. 

Those living in the new homes can enjoy stunning natural views as the development backs onto Cardowan Moss nature reserve, while Seven Lochs at Hogganfield Park is a five-minute drive.

The new development is highly energy-efficient to help reduce running costs for new homeowners, achieving B energy rating.

Glasgow Times:

Each property benefits from a split heating system, solar PV panels, double-glazed windows and increased insulation, and all meet the specifications for green mortgages, allowing prospective buyers access to the lender incentives available for sustainable homes.  

Ainslie McCrone, sales and marketing manager at Briar Homes Ltd said: “Meadowood is the ideal family development, providing spacious three-bedroom homes surrounded by greenery. Briar developments are always thoughtfully designed by architects and come with a higher specification as standard. 

“This is a popular and well-connected area, meaning we are already seeing high levels of interest.

"With completions expected in late summer this year, families can look forward to catching the last of the warmer weather in their new gardens.” 

Prices for semi-detached villas in the Ash style start at £259,000 and the first phase of completions is expected in late summer 2024.
