William and Moira new Bield TenantsA retired Glasgow couple have spontaneously relocated just one mile from their previous home after a new housing development made an outstanding impression which left them with no choice but to put their property up for sale.

The Stewart’s, who recently moved into St Andrew’s View in Bearsden, were so amazed by the unrivalled levels of quality, choice and comfort for older buyers at this new development that they visited the site, picked an apartment and placed a deposit all within the space of a week to avoid being left disappointed.

William Stewart, a 73 year old retired engineer, said: “We were out for a walk one afternoon in November and this is when we found out about St Andrew’s View.

“We knew we would downsize to a flat in the future, however we hadn’t decided we wanted to move until we saw this development.

“When we visited the apartment we fell in love. We knew this was the perfect property for us and wanted to get in as soon as possible.”

Uncompromising standard

William and his wife Moira, have lived in Bearsden for the last 32 years, also praised Bield for their properties being built to an uncompromising standard specifically with older people in mind.

“The large south-facing balcony more than compensates for not having our own private land and we love the layout of the apartment, it has a wonderful spacious feel to it.

“Being so close to where we used to live is just the icing on the cake as we love the area. We would definitely recommend this development to others looking to start the next stage of their lives.”

St Andrew’s View, a prestigious collection of 20 one and two-bed modern apartments located on the site of the former St Andrew’s College in Bearsden, has just two properties remaining to be sold.
Susan Jackson, New Homes Sales and Marketing Manager at Bield, said: “We are delighted that William and Moira are so happy with their new home.


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

“St Andrew’s View offers a different approach – and more. It gives the older buyer the chance to enjoy an exciting and liberating phase of their life while continuing to enjoy the freedom of independent living.

“There are very few developments in Bearsden as attractive to older buyers as St Andrew’s and I amBield - St Andrew's View so delighted that William and Moira have found the perfect one for them.”

St Andrew’s View is being marketed locally by Corum in Bearsden and the 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. The apartments are being offered at prices from £113,996.
