He was also keen to express just how confident Barratt are in their staff and products: “The quality of workmanship overseen by Hugh and our other site managers throughout the west of Scotland, combined with the excellent products and materials we use, means we are so confident in our product that we offer all purchasers a 5 year warranty as well as the 10 year NHBC Warranty. Our exclusive 5 year warranty, which gives buyers extra peace of mind, covers just about everything that we provide as standard – something no other house-builder offers.“

Founded in 1958 in Newcastle, today The Barratt Group has a network of twenty five house building divisions throughout Britain, selling around fifteen and a half thousand homes every year. The company claims to put all its energies into providing the highest standard of design, construction and customer service in the business. It also prides itself on employing the best site managers, who regularly win in the NHBC accolades.

The Heritage Gate site has proved popular with buyers – another great recognition of the quality of the development. The range of housing available comprises three and four-bedroom homes, which are described as ‘an exciting collection suitable for growing families’.

Four different home styles are available, with prices ranging from £150,000 for the three-bed semi-detached Pitlochry to £221,000 for the Banchory. The top-range, detached Banchory features an integral garage, en-suites to bedrooms one and two, an extensive kitchen-breakfast room and a well-sized room on the first floor to be used for storage, studying or a fifth bedroom. All of the houses are finished with quality fitted kitchens, and have energy-efficient central heating and double-glazed windows.

Heritage Gate is well placed among a town community in Coatbridge, and is particularly close to the Time Capsule leisure centre – therefore offering great facilities for the family. Houses are selling well, with only a few plots still available in this popular development. The competitive pricing and the vibrant local area will no doubt continue to prove a hit with those looking to move into the town.
