New builds: Trust in Pod for added sales incentive with Bellway Homes

Bellway Homes has released a home office package in support of hybrid working, ahead of a range of properties becoming available at its Alder Gate development in Helensburgh, on the West Coast.

Situated on Cardross Road in the sought-after coastal location, Alder Gate comprises 107 new homes. Those set to be released soon include a range of three and four-bedroom options, with prices ranging from £329,995.

The Urban Pod office on show at Alder Gate is priced from £13,895 plus VAT, and can be tailored to include additions such as air conditioning, surround-sound speaker systems, and coloured mood lighting.

It has been introduced in response to the number of people working from home (WFH), and comes with a sliding entrance door and windows, Siberian larch-clad finish, and a choice of Karndean flooring.

Pauline Coates, sales director at Bellway Homes (Scotland West), says: “Alder Gate has been an extremely popular development as it really has the best of all worlds – fantastic scenery, a great outdoor lifestyle, good schooling, a vibrant food scene, and a regular train service. It really does offer an escape from urban living.

“Very often, clients want everything done to their new home before they move in, and the Office Pod is an extension of that. It offers people the real opportunity to combine work with being at home in a positive way, where you can close the door at the end of the day and not feel work is encroaching on your personal space.”

Helensburgh is known for Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s design masterpiece The Hill House, and has a good variety of shops, with plenty of independent retailers as well as high-street brands, and highly-rated restaurants and cafes.
