A new housing development in Bearsden has been shortlisted for another top property award after being named Senior Living Development of the Year in 2015.

Bield’s St Andrew’s View, located on the site of the former St Andrew’s College in Bearsden, has been announced as a finalist in the Outstanding Approach to promoting Home Ownership category at this year’s UK Housing Awards.

The awards ceremony is uniquely designed to pinpoint excellence and reward innovation – shining a light on the ingenuity, creativity and passion demonstrated by social landlords across the UK.

Susan Jackson, sales and marketing manager at Bield, said: “We are absolutely delighted that St Andrew’s View has been shortlisted for another top property accolade.

“In particular, it says something about the quality of the build and the concept behind St Andrew’s View that we have been nominated for awards labelled the most prestigious and well-respected in the housing sector.

“We wanted to build a development tailored for older people that is indistinguishable from any other new build property on the market and we are thrilled that our efforts are being recognised.

“St Andrew’s View offers a different approach, and more. It will offer ‘right-sizers’, those older buyers wanting change to their living arrangement, the chance to enjoy an exciting and liberating phase of their life while continuing to enjoy the freedom of independent living.”

The awards, which recognise outstanding work by housing organisations to improve the lives of people in their communities, are organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and Inside Housing magazine.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, this year’s awards attracted more than 250 entries from all over the UK.

The nomination follows on from Bield’s success at last year’s Scottish Home Awards where St Andrew’s View was named Senior Living Development of the Year.

The judges said of the development: “Our winner stood out as a beautiful tranquil and integral part of this new community which is close to all amenities. St Andrew’s View has a strong community emphasis which we thought provided a complete service with a deep understanding of senior living needs.”
