Development Map


Our Arthurlie Gate development is a redesign of the later phase of our Duncarnock development. The new design is a response to customer’s demands for larger properties. Arthurlie Gate consists of our larger house types, the Caledonian Range.
This beautiful new neighbourhood has been designed as an extension to our current phase at Duncarnock whilst being mindful of the landscaping and existing burn which will be used as an opportunity to make the most of the green space. Footpath links are proposed to connect Arthurlie Gate with Duncarnock and the surrounding local area. further surroundings. 
The proposed mix of new homes at Arthurlie Gate offers a selection of four and five bedroom detached homes from our Caledonian range and each property will include a garden room. Our Caledonian range has been designed to appeal to a wide range of homeowners and each home is perfect for modern living. With room to work from home, along with an impressive specification, these homes benefit from plenty of space for socialising with friends and family.   

Homes proposed

Arthurlie Gate consists of our Caledonian range with garden rooms.
The proposed mix consists of our Caledonian range including garden rooms. This mix ranges from the 1,980 sq ft Kennedy to the 2,576 sq ft Buchanan including a variety of four and five-bedroom houses. We are confident that this product range will be appealing to a wide range of buyers and reports from sales on site refer to customers enquiring about larger properties. The homes within the Caledonian range are fit for purpose for contemporary living. The dwellings address the new work-from-home patterns by providing dedicated study rooms within some house types. In addition, the garden rooms result in an increase of common areas within the dwellings, acting as house extensions. 

Street scenes

The appearance of our homes have been thoughtfully designed create to character and a sense of place.
Our development maximises the latest Scottish Government Planning Policy called Designing Streets which puts pedestrians and cyclists first and helps to encourage their use as social spaces and create a sense of place. We have designed this development to take advantage of the existing topography and burn. The open space provision adjacent to the watercourses is transformed into an opportunity to enhance the whole scheme. This space becomes a defining artefact within the development which creates character. Key frontages have been located towards the open space to create vistas and provide natural surveillance. In combination, a street hierarchy is proposed within the development to help aid navigation and boundary treatments relate to the street hierarchy. The landscape strategy has been carefully designed to enhance all the factors above in a comprehensive design solution.

About our proposal features


We understand that any new development will have an impact on the existing community and we have carefully considered this within our proposals.

Footpath links are proposed in strategic locations throughout the green network to connect Arthurlie Gate with Duncarnock and the further surroundings.

Arthurlie Gate will benefit from the Barrhead South Masterplan which includes a new railway station, transport upgrades and improvements to the Dams to Darnley Country Park.

The kids will love exploring the Dams to Darnley Heritage Trail and Silverburn Shopping Centre is nearby, offering a wide variety of retail and leisure options. 


Preserving and enhancing the existing surroundings is a key consideration for us when planning a new development. 

The existing burn has been integrated into the design and the riparian zone is utilised as part of the open space provision and habitat enhancement. There are also existing trees to the east boundary which have been maintained as possible. 

Wildlife Enhancement Plan - We want to play our part in helping the UK’s wildlife to recover. Through our Environment Strategy, we have set several targets that will help nature on our sites. We already integrate wildlife enhancements and habitat improvements on many of our sites. However, biodiversity loss in the UK is so acute that we need to do more and to use our sites to protect, enhance and increase biodiversity. We will integrate habitat improvements and wildlife enhancements across all our sites, meeting the new biodiversity net gain regulatory requirements and going further.

Our approach

Amenities and facilities

We aim to support the communities in which we build. One way we do this is by providing new facilities that local people will benefit from.

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open space is a key consideration for us.
Our current proposal includes two equipped play areas within large centralised open space area and further green spaces throughout the development which will offer formal and informal play as well as social space for the community to enjoy.  The play areas are seamlessly integrated within the open space near the existing burn. These areas are well overlooked by houses, and they play a critical role in bringing the open spaces to life.
