Newly weds find dream home

With three house moves and a wedding all within a year, Stuart and Julie McGregor could have been starring in their own movie. Now the couple are glad the hectic times of 2011 are behind them as they enjoy life in comfort at their new four-bedroom luxury home in Lenzie.

CALA HomesSupply chain manager Stuart, and wife Julie, both had individual flats in Dunfermline and the West End of Glasgow respectively. When they got married, in November 2010, they decided to put their properties up for sale and buy a home together.

Stuart explained: "We were looking for a family home to move to but, because of the way the market was, the flats were proving difficult to sell.Julie's sold first so we moved to Dunfermline and then, when that property sold, we had to find a stop-gap while we looked."

That was back in March, and the couple found a lovely two-bedroom cottage in Milngavie to move to while they searched for their dream home.

"We wanted to take our time and work out the best place for us," said Stuart. "We were looking for somewhere equidistant between Linlithgow, where I work, and the south side of Glasgow where Julie works."

CALA HomesTo begin with the couple focused on older properties which they were willing to develop, but an advert for a new-build CALA development in Lenzie caught their eye.

"We noticed CALA at Woodilee Village was a development of only 56 houses which attracted us.  A lot of the new-builds don't seem to get enough space; the back gardens are on top of each other, the bedrooms would be small, so there's no real room and we thought you'd get more in an older house.

"But the CALA homes were different and, in the property we chose, there are four double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and lots of space for cabinets and other furniture."

Set in the grounds of the former Woodilee Hospital, the development is home to a collection of four and five-bedroom detached properties surrounded by woodland.

Each home has galleried landings and high-quality fittings. The McGregors opted for the Colville-style property, with four bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a separate study on the upper floor. The ground floor features a lounge, large open-plan kitchen with family dining area and French doors to the rear garden. There's also an integral single garage, utility room and separate WC.

And after so much upheaval last year, the couple are now delighted to be able to relax in their new home.
