Lomondgate housebuilding gets going

28 Mar 2011

Housebuilding has begun in earnest at Lomondgate on the edge of Dumbarton. The site has a prominent location on the A82 not far from Loch Lomond.

Scottish house builders, Walker Group and Persimmon Homes, have launched Lomondgate's new residential development creating a new community on the edge of Dumbarton.

Walker Group is to build 109 new homes on a site which will be called The Maltings and will feature a selection of two, three, four and five bedroom properties.  The first phase of properties to be released will include a choice of two bedroom terraced homes, three bedroom townhouses and four bedroom villas, with prices starting from £129,000.

Persimmon Homes is set to create 119 homes on an adjacent 8.5 acre site and will offer homebuyers a choice of two bedroom apartments and two, three and and four bedroom villas. First release prices will be made available to those on Persimmon's mailing list in advance of the official launch.

Sandy Casey, Sales & Marketing Director, Walker Group said, "Location is always a top priority for homebuyers and Lomondgate couldn't be better placed.   Within easy commuting distance to Glasgow and yet positioned as the gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, it offers a terrific environment for families with plenty to do and explore.

"We have a lot of people already on our waiting lists and we expect a good response to the launch, particularly when buyers see how competitively the properties have been priced."

Ingrid Gahagan, Sales Director with Persimmon Homes added, "We've received a lot of enquiries over the past few months demonstrating this development is going to be in high demand and are offering purchasers the opportunity to receive an early bird bonus for plots not on release at the launch."

The £100m Lomondgate project was launched in 2007 by Strathleven Regeneration Company, (SRC) a public-private partnership established with the support of West Dunbartonshire Council, Scottish Enterprise and Diageo.

SRC formed a partnership with developer Walker Group to help deliver its plans for a thriving new community on the site providing new homes, a new business location and destination services on the A82.  So far Walker Group has invested more than £14m into the development through road and infrastructure improvements.

Walker Group's sales office can be contacted on 07543 572040 and Persimmon's on 08444 904016, from 11 to 5pm Friday to Monday and 1-7pm on a Thursday. For further information log onto www.walkergroup.co.uk and www.persimmonhomes.com.
