Overview

Living in Crookston 
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as be a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around The Larches. 

Outdoor Activities 
Many of Glasgow’s most popular open green spaces are located in the area around The Larches. The delightful Ross Hall Park, where you can join the White Cart Walkway and enjoy long riverside walks, and Crookston Wood, with its picturesque castle, are both a few minutes’ walk from the development. And just two miles to the east, the celebrated open spaces of Bellahouston Park and the vast Pollok Country Park present an enormous variety of gardens, woodlands, and meadows alongside wildlife habitats. 

Shopping 
There is good local shopping in the area around The Larches, including a post office, convenience stores, supermarkets and mini-markets. A major Tesco supermarket can also be found at the Silverburn Shopping Centre, around a mile away. Both the centre of Paisley and the vast Braehead Shopping Centre, with over one hundred retailers and a separate retail park, are within three miles of the development. 

Sport & Leisure 
There are excellent sports and leisure facilities nearby in Bellahouston Park, including a swimmingpool, a separate leisure pool, a well-equipped gym, sauna and steam room, a sports hall and soft-play and baby-play facilities. All-weather outdoor facilities are available in the Park, including a hockey pitch and running track. The Park is also the location of the Glasgow Ski and Snowboard Centre, with its superb floodlit dry slope. Around two miles to the west of The Larches, the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley offers a leisure pool, a comprehensive and well-equipped fitness suite, a dance studio and a six-court sports hall. In addition, there are four fine golf courses, all within easy reach. 

Transport 
The Larches is in easy reach of the city centre by car or bus, or by Glasgow’s superb local rail network from Crookston station, just a short distance from the development. The location also offers fast access, by the M77 and A77, to the seaside towns and villages of the south-west coast, and, by the M8, to the whole of the central belt region.

Attractions close to The Larches include the renowned Burrell Collection, an awe-inspiring art collection housed in a superb purpose built gallery in Pollok Country Park and, in the spectacular setting of Bellahouston Park, Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s unique House for an Art Lover, a magnificent example of seamlessly integrated architecture and interior design.

About Developer

Our Background

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.
