Incentives and inspirations
CALA Homes is opening doors throughout all eight of its west of Scotland developments on August 24 and 25 in a special one-off part-exchange weekend. Along with local estate agents and financial advisors, the award-winning housebuilder’s specialist will be on hand at each development to provide full details of how CALA’s partexchange service could help transform aspiring buyers into home owners.
Other incentives available at all developments include carpets, turf and stamp duty paid, plus a £5000 summer bonus on selected plots, subject to terms and conditions.
The weekend event will run from 11am until 5.30pm on both days at the following developments: Kinnaird Grove and Kinnaird Point, Larbert; Cotter’s Way, Bishopbriggs; Millbank, Deanston; Kirk Green, St Quivox; Woodilee Village, Lenzie; Waterfoot at Waterfoot near Eaglesham; and The Ambles, East Kilbride. l Kier Homes has released a new top-of-the-range five-bedroom Blair house type at its Hawkhead Village development in Paisley that may be of special interest to film buffs due to its top-floor media room.
The Blair’s first floor houses four bedrooms while on the second is a spacious main bedroom with en suite bathroom, and the 17ft media room, which could also be a sixth bedroom, sitting room or games room.
“Everyone seems to love the top floor,” said Carole Donaldson, Kier Homes’ regional sales and marketing manager. “Parents tend to see it as a peaceful haven from family life, while teenagers all want to bag it as a den.”
The Hawkhead marketing suite is open from Thursday to Monday, 10am until 5pm.

The Bridge of Allan-based housebuilder is also freezing the price of the Ochil house style at 2010 levels – from £192,950, or from £154,360 l Showhouses are designed to be both aspirational and inspirational – and when their job is done, they offer the ultimate ready-made new home.
