Popular location proves to be a hit

A leading regional housebuilder says a new site in Johnstone has proved to be a huge hit with buyers after almost a quarter of the properties were snapped up at a pre-launch event.

The £13 million Scholars Green development is the latest collection of 126 new homes from Persimmon Homes West Scotland.

Interest in the site at the former St Cuthberts High School site off Hallhill Road has already exceeded expectation following the pre-launch event held at Johnstone Town Hall.

Sales staff were inundated with enquiries from buyers that were keen to buy off plan at the event. In total 29 properties were sold or ear-marked by eager buyers and interest has continued to peak.

The site offers a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes with the addition of two bedroom apartments.

Ingrid Gahagan, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes West Scotland, said:

“The unprecedented interest we have experienced in our Scholars Green development was evident before we started on site.”

“It is easy to see why Scholars Green is so popular offering the best of both worlds, surrounded by stunning views coupled with great commuter links to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Paisley.”

Officially launched on 23rd April, Scholars Green has an onsite sales cabin where sales advisors are on hand to discuss the remaining plots and guide buyers through the house buying process.

Ingrid added:

“We believe the new range of homes will appeal to all budgets and lifestyles.  In particular our range of apartments are keenly priced to attract first-time buyers.

“Buying a new home is now more affordable and straightforward than ever thanks to incentives including the Government-backed Help to Buy, Home Change and the Persimmon Part Exchange scheme.”

Under the scheme, people buying a new-build home only require a five per cent deposit along with an 80 per cent mortgage. The Government provides a 15 per cent equity loan, which is interest and repayment free for the lifetime of the loan.

Prices at Scholars Green start from £113,995.
