Pr in EdinburghA new housing development in Bearsden offering unrivalled levels of quality, choice and comforts for older buyers has been shortlisted for another two top property awards – after recently being named Senior Living Development of the Year at the Scottish Home Awards.

St Andrew’s View, located on the site of the former St Andrew’s College in Bearsden, has been nominated in the Best Apartment Category and the Affordable Development of the Year Category at this year’s The Herald Property Awards.

The Herald Property Awards were founded in 2007 to honour the achievements of the most innovative and successful house builders, developers and registered social landlords.

Susan Jackson, Sales and Marketing Manager at Bield, said: “We are absolutely delighted that St Andrew’s View has been shortlisted for another two top property accolades.

“In particular, it says something about the quality of the build and the concept behind St Andrew’s View that we have been nominated in a category not specifically for social housing.

“We wanted to build a development tailored for older people that is indistinguishable from any other new build property on the market and we are thrilled that our efforts are being recognised.

St Andrew’s View offers a different approach – and more. It will offer ‘right-sizers’ – those older buyers wanting change their living arrangement – 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.”

The nominations follow on from Bield’s success at this year’s Scottish Home Awards where St Andrew’s View was named Senior Living Development of the Year.

The judges said of the development: “Our winner stood out as a beautiful tranquil and integral part of this new community which is close to all amenities. St Andrew’s View has a strong community emphasis which we thought provided a complete service with a deep understanding of senior living needs.”

The 20 one and two-bed modern apartments are designed to specifically meet the needs of prospective purchasers and have been built to an uncompromising Edinburgh PR agency highlights popularity of new retirement housingstandard for Bield, one of Scotland’s leading providers of housing for older buyers.

As well as offering unprecedented high standards, St Andrew’s View apartments are available on a highly affordable shared ownership basis – an increasingly appealing purchase arrangement. Shared ownership offers the option to purchase a 75% share of the property with the remaining share being held by Bield. Buyers will have the option to purchase the remaining 25% in increments following a one-year qualifying period.

Only four of the 20 properties are left to be sold and interest is intensifying in the remaining properties, particularly from the local Bearsden area. Two ‘View Homes’ are now available to visit by appointment providing examples of how the apartments can be designed and furnished.

St Andrew’s View is being marketed by Corum Property and the apartments are being offered at fixed prices from £149,995. For more information –
