Welcome to Kinglass Fields.
On the edge of this historic town, buffered by open green landscapes to the south and just a mile from the town centre, this prestigious development of two, three, four and five bedroom homes presents an opportunity to settle in a mature, traditional community within easy commuting range of Edinburgh and the whole central belt. Close to local shops and amenities, and adjacent to bus routes and footpaths, it combines convenience with a real sense of roots.
For more local travel, Bo’ness town centre is a short walk away. The homes are close to a network of footpaths and cycle routes. The town has a number of unusual attractions that reflect its long history, including a celebrated heritage steam railway, the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway, which operates trains between Bo’ness and Manuel and also has a volunteer run historic railway museum. Bo’ness is also the location of Scotland’s oldest purpose-built cinema, the magnificent pre-Art Deco Hippodrome, and the local library is housed in a renovated 17th century building.
More modern leisure amenities include West Lothian Golf Club on the southern edge of the development and Bo’ness Recreation Centre, around a quarter of a mile away. The Recreation Centre incorporates a 25m swimming pool, a well-equipped gym and a wide choice of sports and fitness activities. It also has recycling bins for glass, metal cans, clothing and shoes, and there are more comprehensive recycling facilities at Kinneil Kerse, around two miles away. The Co-op store in Linlithgow road, less than ten minutes walk from the development, is a licensed food store and newsagent, and is open till late seven days a week. There is a pharmacist just a little further on in Dean Road. The town centre contains a mixture of traditional specialist shops and services as well as Lidl and Tesco Metro stores. There is also a selection of shops, including a Sainsbury’s, in nearby Linlithgow.
Of the five primary schools in the town, the two nearest to the development are Kinneil Primary and St Mary’s RC Primary, both of which have had positive inspection reports, and for secondary education Bo’ness Academy is just a few minutes walk away. Kinglass Medical Practice, a full-time service with three GPs, is just half a mile away, and the choice of dental surgeries in the town includes the Rosemount practice, approximately a mile from the development

We’ll keep it brief, because a lot has happened over the past seventy-five years. Around 100,000 new Miller homes, for a start. A lot of new ideas in building technology. Loads of awards, like Major Housebuilder of the Year, Large Housebuilder of the Year, Best Sustainable Development, and Private Housebuilder of the Year. That last one’s important because it’s from First Time Buyer magazine, so it’s about real people and their experiences.
Listening to you
Four times every year, we ask an independent research company to find out whether our customers would recommend us to friends. Our current rating is 97% positive (2012 average).
That’s about more than great houses. It’s about keeping in touch, helping you find what you want, helping you buy it once you’ve found it, telling you how the building’s coming along (by email, SMS, or the post). It’s about listening, and being there if you have a question or a problem. It’s about our incentives, offers and assistance schemes (please check them out), and dedicated websites that help people in a new neighbourhood to get to know each other. Yes, we get excited by new ideas and technologies, but essentially we’re just old fashioned, home loving people.
Quality homes. In quality places.
Building homes is what we do, and we do it exceptionally well. Over the past 75 years, we’ve seen what people really like about the homes we build and, well, we build on that experience.
So you know that behind the kerb appeal there’s a structure that meets the highest professional standards. You know that the beautifully proportioned rooms are impeccably finished and decorated. You know that every detail has been checked, inspected (and admired). You know all that because of the way the door feels when you open it, the crisp clean edge of the paintwork, the way your whole home just works. That’s experience.
What you may not realise, at least until you have the pleasant surprise of seeing your fuel bills, is that we are also absolutely committed to the most environmentally friendly movements in homebuilding. This means we use low-carbon construction methods (even zero carbon on occasion) but it also means that our homes are highly energy efficient in everyday life.
And finally, location location location. Some people want country quiet, some want urban convenience. All we can do is try to find the very best spot for every taste. So we try to put urban where it’s also pretty quiet and rural where it’s also pretty convenient. And the views? Well, we can’t move mountains (and wouldn’t if we could) but we will try to make sure your new home is pointing towards one if there’s one available, and something else nice if there’s not.
Service is too small a word.
We think of it as a relationship. Even if it never gets beyond the electronic stage we’ll do our very best to help you find what you’re looking for, and do it as unobtrusively as we can. You choose the channels, and we go away when you ask us to.
When you visit one of our developments, though, we have a chance to meet properly and talk. We enjoy that. We’ll show you homes we think you might like (or ones very like them if they’re not finished yet) and tell you about special offers that might interest you.
If you decide to buy, we’ll help in every way we can. We can give you information about mortgages and lawyers if you want it, although we’re careful not to become too close to anyone working on your behalf because we don’t want any conflicts of interest. Then we’ll keep you informed as your new home is being built, and invite you round at the appropriate time to choose things like kitchen worktops and bathroom tiles. If you want to measure up for carpets and curtains, we’ll do our best to arrange things.
When you get your keys, there’s a meeting to go over all the important stuff like stopcocks and thermostats, and we’ll also leave you full instructions. But here’s the best part. We don’t go away. We’ll leave you in peace, of course, but if you need help or advice we’ll be on hand for as long as you need us. That’s the kind of relationship we like.
