20150703 Bield - St Andrews View 001 - EDITA new housing development in Bearsden offering unrivalled levels of quality, choice and comfort for older buyers has opened its stunning show homes to the public.

St Andrew’s View is a prestigious collection of 20 one and two-bed modern apartments, located on the site of the former St Andrew’s College in Bearsden.

The properties are designed to specifically meet the needs of older people and have been built to an uncompromising standard for Bield, one of Scotland’s leading providers of affordable housing for older people.


High levels of demand for the flexible living offered at Bield developments has seen buyers snap up the properties off-plan and there are now only six remaining.

The development is being marketed by Corum Property and the public will be given the chance to see how the apartments can be designed and furnished as the show homes are now open.

James Lang, Partner at Corum Property, said: “Interest has been intensifying on the last remaining properties, particularly from the local area.20150703 Bield - St Andrews View  002 - EDIT

“There are a number of people waiting to see examples of how the apartments can be designed and furnished and we believe interest will increase even further after people have be given a taster of the properties.

“There are very few developments in Bearsden as attractive to older buyers as St Andrew’s View and we have a full database of clients who are looking to downsize their homes – this is why the development has been so popular.”

Overwhelming response

Susan Jackson, New Homes Sales and Marketing Manager at Bield, is overwhelmed at the response St Andrew’s View has received, believing it highlights the quality of the build and the desirability of the St Andrew’s View concept.

Susan said: “We think the development is a great showcase of everything Bield commits to achieve with its homes – quality, choice and comfort.

“We wanted to build a development tailored for older people that is indistinguishable from any other new build property on the market, therefore we are absolutely thrilled there has been such a great response.

“St Andrew’s View offers the unique Bield approach to potential buyers, offering the chance to enjoy an exciting and liberating phase of their life while continuing to enjoy the freedom of independent living, with the option of the right help when you need it.”
