A New Apartment in Glasgow

When you purchase a new home from Urban Union, it provides a blank canvas from which to create your own comfortable, stylish space. Whether you’re opting for a one or two-bedroom apartment or a 3,4 or 5 bedroom townhouse, your property could look insta-worthy with just a few stylish additions. When you purchase an Urban Union property you’ll move in to a home that is clean and bright, with plenty of storage space.

The decor will be neutral and, if you reserve early enough, you could choose your own extras such as your kitchen or bathroom style. Two of our previous buyers are Kayleigh and Danny, a couple who had previously become engaged and looking to find their first home together.

They wanted a starter flat to get onto the property ladder and wanted something that was close to the amenities in Shawlands and Glasgow.

Of viewing the property for the first time Kayleigh says “When we stepped inside it felt really roomy, I loved the high ceilings which reminded me of the tenement-style properties I like but this had the added bonus of a balcony that goes right the way across the front of the flat. It’s a feature I love and something I’m really looking forward to using in the summer.”

As Kayleigh works in the city centre and Danny regularly travels for work, they opted for an apartment at Laurieston Living close to transport links. What’s more, Kayleigh’s parents were just a five-minute drive away.

Speaking of the experience of buying their first home, Kayleigh said: “We were really nervous beforehand but we found it very easy and a lot quicker than we were expecting. Any time we had questions we could just give Lynne at Urban Union a call and the free mortgage advisor they recommended to us was a big help too. “We had agreed everything in September 2019 and were scheduled to move in June 2020 but this was delayed until November by the coronavirus pandemic. This didn’t really affect us too much and gave us a bit of extra time to save. Urban Union was good at keeping us up-to-date with any developments and invited us in for a socially-distanced viewing ahead of our move.”

Now that they’ve settled into their new home, Kayleigh is focusing on adding some final touches to the decor. She said: “I love how bright and airy the master bedroom is but I am obsessed with the spare room at the moment. There are so many things we could use this for but I’ve decided to make it into a dressing room, I’m waiting on our new velvet sofa bed and a huge leaning mirror to arrive.” When asked whether they would have any advice for other first-time buyers, Kayleigh said: “We found what we wanted straight away but we had put a lot of thought into exactly what it is we wanted.

If you do this, you can communicate exactly what it is that you’re looking for and like us, you may even be surprised by what is out there.”
