Summer Staycation for Happy Home Buyers

The sun shines on happy family in their new CALA Home
The Finlays who have recently moved into a new CALA home are swapping the Spanish shores for the prestigious Murieston Gait development, opting to enjoy the sunny season in the comfort of their plush new pad.
Grant Finlay and his wife and two children made the move to Murieston Gait in April and have been so delighted with their new 5 bedroom home that they can’t bear to part with it, not even for a fortnight.
Grant said: “The moment I walked into CALA’s Murieston Gait showhome I had goosebumps. The hairs on the back of my neck literally stood up, the property is just so breathtaking. Everything about the property leapt out to us, from the high ceilings to the state of the art kitchen and enormous garden.
“The house is so perfect we both thought, why spend money to go abroad, when our home is far nicer than any of the hotels we would be visiting?”
Grant, who works for his family’s business, Knowepark Caravans and Motorhomes in Livingtson, also praised CALA Homes for its high quality of customer service.
He added: “I have previously lived in developments made by smaller property companies, and after the move in date you can feel like you’re left to your own devices. It’s not ideal when you’ve just made such an important purchase.
“The experience with CALA however has been entirely different and they have been consistently on hand throughout the entire process. You could just click your fingers and someone would be there to help you out, nothing is ever too much trouble for them.
“The icing on the cake was the welcome pack we received when we moved in, including CALA towels, luxury branded products and manuals that explained everything we needed to know about the home.”
Best Of Both Worlds
The Finlay’s new five bedroom ‘Ranald’ home in CALA’s signature development is surrounded by mature trees and farmland, located in an area renowned for its excellent transport links, including two local train stations and easy access to the M8/M9 motorways.
This means that families can commute to Scotland’s two largest cities, without having to pay a city premium for their home.
Grant added: “You can go one way and you’re in Glasgow, another and you’re in Edinburgh so I know many of our neighbours are regular commuters. Luckily for me work is just around the corner but it’s great to have easy access to the cities at the weekends.
“To top it off the area feels so rural, surrounded by beautiful countryside so it really is the best of both worlds. The garden also has plenty of room for entertaining, so we can’t wait to get the barbeque out and invite over our family and friends to sip on cocktails throughout the summer months.”
All of the light-filled homes at Murieston Gait have spacious rooms, high-quality fittings, extensive storage and sit in a carefully designed development area, with a range of attractive outdoor walks and scenery.
Situated in one of the most exclusive areas of Livingston, the development offers buyers a selection of four and five bedroom detached properties starting from £375,000 with part-exchange available.
Sarah Stanger, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes (East), said: “We are delighted to see that the Finlay family are so happy with their new home.
“At CALA homes we focus not just on the high quality of the houses we sell but also on the service we offer to our customers and ensure it doesn’t just stop as soon as the keys have been handed over. As a result we earn great loyalty from our customers, who often go on to live in a series of CALA properties.
“I’m sure the Finlays will thoroughly enjoy the summer in their new home at Murieston Gait. It’s a superb development and with the fantastic weather we’ve been lucky enough to have over the past few weeks, I’m sure they’ll be making the most of their gorgeous new garden.”
CALA Homes, part of the CALA Group, is the UK’s most upmarket major home builder operating in the South of England, the Midlands and Scotland. The company focuses on high quality, well-designed homes in prime locations, from starter homes to luxury detached family properties.
