It was love at first spec for Gaye and Hugh Timmins when they found their dream home at Miller Homes Liberty Park development in Bathgate.
The grandmother of one and her joiner husband had just popped in for a look at the Shepherd show home with no immediate intentions of moving.
But as soon as Gaye stepped into the open plan kitchen and dining area with French doors leading to the back garden she knew she had to live in one and the couple set the wheels in motion for owning a new home.
She said: “We were living in three bedroom apartment close by and one day we decided to go to the development to have a look as it was the fourth time Miller Homes were building in the area.
“We weren’t really set on moving but when I saw the open plan kitchen and dining area I just fell in love and knew I had to live there. I could just visualise being in the kitchen preparing lunch for when my family came to visit and having my granddaughter safely playing in the back garden.
“Fortunately for us, there were a number of Shepherd house types due to be built, so we were able to get in early enough to reserve our plot and choose our fixtures and fittings which was great as it meant we were able to have our home just as we wanted it.”
Gaye, an office manager, added: “Some people find the whole house buying process extremely stressful, but I have to say it was relatively painless thanks to the sales advisor. Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable, but she was really passionate about Miller Homes and was with us every step of the way.
“We also used Miller Homes’ Part Exchange which meant we didn’t have the hassle of putting our apartment on the market and waiting for viewers. Plus, it also meant we moved out of our apartment the day we got the keys to our house which was perfect. We have been in our home since November 2015 and we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.”
Liberty Park offers an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to buy in a central location close to a variety of transport options with easy access to the M8 and Bathgate train station. This is a great advantage for anyone looking to commute east or west.
