New tenant moves into ‘dream home’ from Lowther
After living in a series of cold and damp private lets with sky-high heating costs, Nattalie McCulloch and her teenage son Jack couldn’t believe their luck when they landed the keys to a new Lowther Homes property.
The flat, in the Ferry Village development in Braehead, is one of 24 built by Barratt Homes West Scotland and recently bought by Lowther Homes, which has a growing portfolio of almost 700 homes for mid-market and full-market rent.
Nattalie, a residential childcare worker, and Jack, 17, are among the latest tenants to move into the one and two-bedroom flats which come with 24-hour customer service, affordable rents and a parking space.
“They are a great size and there is loads of space and storage - which isn’t always the case with new properties.
“It’s like a dream – I can’t believe I live here. I loved it from the first moment I viewed the flat.”
Gillian Lavety, director at Wheatley Group, Lowther’s parent company, said: “We want to give people, especially those who are struggling to get on the property ladder, a range of options for affordable, quality housing.
“These brand new homes are already proving really popular and are part of our plans to build or acquire hundreds of new affordable homes over the next five years and drive up standards in the private rented sector.”
