Luxury development 'attracts buyers'

A development of luxury houses has encouraged those looking to buy a house in Scotland to queue overnight in order to secure one of 13 properties, according to reports. The Helensburgh Advertiser said that the Victoria Crescent luxury homes at the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club, launched by Savills Property Agent, attracted a number of buyers who were willing to stand in the bad weather overnight to secure one. Eight high-end apartments and five luxury houses make up the development and the fact that work has not yet begun on the properties did not put off certain househunters who were looking to buy a house in Scotland. “People are showing a lot of interest in Victoria Crescent and seem keen to buy,” said Andrew Perratt, an estate agent from the firm, according to the newspaper. “Most people have come for the apartments. There seems to be an acute shortage of high end flats in Helensburgh.” Two-bedroom apartments start at £270,000 and a four-bedroom house £590,000, with the properties expected to be completed this time next year. Savills has more than 200 offices and associates across the world, according to the firm’s website.
