Banish the January Blues at Monarch's Way

Banish the January Blues at Monarch's Way
Walker Group is helping househunters survive Blue Monday with a fun incentive at its Monarch’s Way development in West Calder.

Dubbed by experts as the most miserable day of the year, January 21st is considered a low point for many people thanks to the combination of poor weather, credit card bills, lack of motivation to keep New Year’s resolutions and the dark nights.

However buyers who reserve a property at the popular development before the end of January will be given £100 worth of shopping vouchers for Livingston Designer Outlets and £100 of Vue Cinema vouchers, so they can catch up on all the latest blockbusters.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “After all the excitement of Christmas, January can feel a bit flat and we thought this offer might put a smile back on buyers’ faces. January can actually be an amazing time to buy a new build home as there is generally a wider choice of property available.”

Properties just released at Monarch’s Way include the three bedroom Belmont from £227,000, the four bedroom Kidston from £249,000 and four bedroom Landsborough from £260,000.

Also available is the four bedroom Canterbury from £271,000 and the Oakleigh from £330,000. The stunning four bedroom Oakleigh boasts a 34 ft long open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, which will make buyers the envy of their friends.

The ultimate in luxury, this contemporary kitchen comes complete with a five burner gas hob, double oven, integrated freezer and dishwasher. There is a useful separate utility room. A double garage and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor of the property.

Upstairs the master suite has a shower-room and a dressing room and the second bedroom and third bedroom have a Jack and Jill ensuite. There is also a fourth bedroom, ideal for guests, and a contemporary bathroom.

Monarch’s Way features a collection of two, three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete, just four miles from Livingston. Named after Charles X, who visited West Calder in 1832 when in exile from his native France, Monarch’s Way features some of the developer’s most sought after house types.

Surrounded by countryside, Monarch’s Way is just a short distance from West Calder’s centre which offers a range of shops, a supermarket, cafes, bars, restaurants and professional services.

Ideally located for commuters with its own train station, there are regular services from West Calder to Edinburgh taking just 27 minutes and passengers can get to Livingston in just 3 minutes. It’s just a ten minute drive to The Centre Livingston which is one of Scotland’s leading retail destinations with over 155 shops and a tempting selection of restaurants and cafes.

The kids will love West Calder’s Five Sisters Zoo which has over 160 species of mammals, birds and reptiles - from meerkats to arctic wolves. Recent additions include four ex-circus lions. A great family day out, visitors can also enjoy the large outdoor play and picnic area.

There are four good primary schools in the village and there are plans to replace the current West Calder High School with a brand new multi-million pound building which will provide a state-of-the-art learning environment. There are lots of things to see and do in the surrounding area including a visit to Almondell and Calderwood Country Park, where you can walk the dog, picnic by the riverside or explore the woodland where you can see Roe deer roaming wild.

Buyers can see the very high standard of accommodation on offer by visiting the new Gladstone showhome which pays homage to the new wave of Scandinavian design. With designs from Carol Yates Interior Design, it has the unfussy, relaxed, contemporary look that is the hallmark of Nordic design and features a colour palette of greys, whites and blues along with oak furniture. The showhome and sales office at Monarch’s Way are open from Thursday to Monday 11am-5pm.
