Mother and Daughter Make The Move To Scotland And Into Their Dream Home

Irene Boyes case study

Irene Boyes and her daughter, Chloe lived in Surrey but had a family connection to Glasgow and were looking to live near the city. After coming across the four-bedroom Douglas house-type at Springhill Meadows in Barrhead, they knew they had found their dream home. Here, Irene and her daughter tell us why they love their new home.

Irene stated: "I come from Renfrew but have lived down south in Surrey for Years. I didn't have my heart set on any particular area in Glasgow, but we had a great feeling about Springhill Meadows as soon as we arrived. It feels like you're in the countryside but it's not far from the bustling town of Barrhead where there's everything we need, from the train station to the sports centre and Chloe's school".
Featuring four-bedroom homes on the edge of the vibrant town of Barrhead, Springhill Meadows has something for everyone and was exactly what the Boyes family were looking for.
Irene continued: "Springhill Meadows is the perfect location for myself and Chloe. I didn't want to live in a concrete jungle, but didn't want to be too far away from the city centre either. The development is in the ideal location - surrounded by open green spaces and beautiful views, but still less than 30 minutes away from the heart of Glasgow."
Irene and Chloe live in a four-bedroom Douglas house-type, which has been designed to make the most of natural light.
"We love the design of our home, it's all open-plan and we have plenty of space. It's so bright and the flow of the home makes it great for socialising. Upstairs, we've adapted the bedrooms to suit our needs - we have a study, a guest room and we've turned one of the bedrooms into a chill-out living room for Chloe and her friends. 
"I absolutely love my bedroom. It's a little bit of luxury for me, with an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe. It's definitely got the wow-factor."
Irene and Chloe moved into their new home five months ago after going through the buying process with Miller Homes. 
"We chose a new build because of the blank canvas that we could have. Everything is new, which is really lovely, and the team at Miller Homes have been amazing.
"The Development Sales Managers were always on hand and came back to me straight away over email and phone. Selling my home in England took a little longer than expected, and they were extremely patient. I'd absolutely recommend Miller Homes to anyone." 
Perfectly situated for commuting to Glasgow's city centre and across the central belt, Springhill Meadows is perfect for young professionals and families alike to put down roots in the west. The popular Barrhead development offers the best picturesque rural living and convenience, with its tight-knight community feel making it a great place to call home.
