Dou­ble de­light for West­point Homes


WEST­POINT Homes achieved recog­ni­tion in, not just one, but two, top awards at this year’s Her­ald Prop­erty Awards.

The house­builder was pre­sented with Best Apart­ment for its de­sir­able de­vel­op­ment at Schol­ars Court in New­ton Mearns, and Best In­di­vid­ual New Build or Small De­vel­op­ment of the Year for its pres­ti­gious Ranfurly View in Bridge of Weir.

Both de­vel­op­ments are dis­tinc­tively dif­fer­ent and show­case the di­ver­sity that the West­point Homes team brings to the house­build­ing in­dus­try. West­point is renowned for its unique ap­proach to cre­at­ing be­spoke prop­erty de­signs for each of its de­vel­op­ments. The team prides it­self in en­sur­ing that no two West­point de­vel­op­ments are the same.

Re­spond­ing to the win, Stephen Cullis, Chair­man of West­point Homes, said: “We are so pleased to have our work recog­nised at these Scot­tish awards and it means a lot to all of us, es­pe­cially at the time when ev­ery­one is work­ing late try­ing to over­come the chal­lenges which al­low us to cre­ate the very best de­vel­op­ment we can for our buy­ers.

“Each award, in fact each de­vel­op­ment, is the re­sult of a mas­sive team ef­fort where ev­ery­one com­bines their skills to cre­ate some­thing spe­cial and that ap­proach is ap­plied to ev­ery de­vel­op­ment. Our land team is com­mit­ted to find­ing the best lo­ca­tions and our de­sign team can then con­sider what can be cre­ated to best suit the en­vi­ron­ment and the needs of lo­cal buy­ers, whether that be peo­ple look­ing for a lux­ury large villa for a grow­ing fam­ily or an equally luxe apart­ment suited to down­siz­ers. Con­sid­er­able ef­fort goes into ev­ery de­vel­op­ment that we build.”

The team were es­pe­cially de­lighted to win the pres­ti­gious ti­tle for Ranfurly View, in the highly sought-af­ter Bridge of Weir, the de­vel­op­ment fea­tures four grand de­tached homes and four sub­stan­tial villa apart­ments over­look­ing the 18th fair­way of the im­pres­sive Ranfurly Cas­tle Golf Course.

All prop­er­ties were con­ceived and de­signed in cel­e­bra­tion of ar­chi­tect, John Camp­bell, a distinguished Ed­war­dian Glas­gow ar­chi­tect and a con­tem­po­rary of Charles Ren­nie Mack­in­tosh who de­signed many of the neigh­bour­ing vil­las on Cl­e­vans Road as well as the im­pos­ing Ranfurly Cas­tle Golf Club which is ad­ja­cent to the de­vel­op­ment.

Only two villa apart­ments re­main for sale. The Cl­e­vans is an up­per villa apart­ment boast­ing an im­pres­sive 2,196 sq ft, of­fer­ing all the floor space nor­mally as­so­ci­ated with a large fam­ily home.

It fea­tures an in­te­gral garage and a stair­way which opens out to a spa­cious gar­den room with French doors and a Juli­ette bal­cony invit­ing pic­turesque views across the 18th fair­way.

The main ac­com­mo­da­tion is lo­cated on the up­per floor and in­cludes a large lounge with a sep­a­rate din­ing room. The fit­ted kitchen is gen­er­ously pro­por­tioned to in­clude a break­fast ta­ble if de­sired. The apart­ment fea­tures three large dou­ble bed­rooms – both the mas­ter bed­room and se­cond bed­room ben­e­fit from fit­ted wardrobes and en-suites. The Cl­e­vans also fea­tures a shower room, a con­ve­nient util­ity room and plenty of stor­age space and is priced from £499,000.

In sharp con­trast Schol­ars Court, in the heart of New­ton Mearns, was built on the former site of Old Mearns Pri­mary School on Ayr Road within walk­ing dis­tance of The Av­enue Shop­ping Cen­tre. Fea­tur­ing 27 one and two bed­room apart­ments set within four dif­fer­ent blocks, the de­vel­op­ment proved to be top of its class and sold out within months.

Caryl Speirs, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Man­ager added: “Schol­ars Court was par­tic­u­larly ap­peal­ing to lo­cal buy­ers keen to stay within the com­mu­nity al­though want­ing

to down­size. De­sign­ing for buy­ers look­ing to move from a larger prop­erty into an apart­ment can be quite tricky. Al­though you don’t want the up­keep and main­te­nance of a larger home, buy­ers still want to re­tain as much space as pos­si­ble. Our de­sign team got it spot-on at Schol­ars Court and that, com­bined, with its con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion, proved to be a win­ner.”

West­point Homes is al­ready look­ing for­ward to the year ahead with a num­ber of ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ments in the pipe­line. A new show home has opened at Rose­bery Grange in Dal­meny, near South Queens­ferry and a new de­vel­op­ment of grand lux­ury apart­ments is about to be launched in Pol­lok­shields. Cur­rent de­vel­op­ments also in­clude South­gate Court in Pol­lok­shields and Knights Grove in New­ton Mearns. Check west­ or call­ing 0141 644 2223.
