Living in Laurieston

View Archive

More and more people like to separate their home life from their work life, which is why living and working in the same town doesn’t have the same appeal that it used to have.

With better road links, more advanced public transport and even the ability to work from home with today’s technology, it’s not surprising that people want to move out of the city where they work to enjoy a more relaxed way of life.

The good news is you don’t have to move out to the wild countryside, at Laurieston you can experience the best of both worlds. With a choice of three train stations, Polmont, Grahamston and Falkirk High, you are just 20 minutes from Glasgow and 40 minutes from Edinburgh and if you are travelling by car, just think how great it is to have free parking right at your doorstep.

There are so many amazing things to see and do in Laurieston, which is why we chose to build our Helix Rise development there. These spaciously chic 2 bed apartments are just a short 2-minute walk to Callendar Park where you can find over 170 acres of country landscape.

The park is home to the magnificent Callendar House, a 14th-century chateau-style house with working Georgian Kitchen and visitor’s tea room. It also has a diary of events throughout the year and has been used as a film location for Outlander.

The park itself is excellent for country walks, cycling, running and for pet owners walking the dog. For those who like to work out, there is an ‘exercise for less’ gym located in Falkirk towns Callendar Square shopping centre.

Close by you’ll find the infamous Kelpies, the world’s largest equine sculpture that sits next to the canal waterway which sees many boats travelling through. Next door is Helix Park which offers an array of activities such as water sports, cycling, walking, running and an adventure centre for the kids.

Apart from activities and events, there are many restaurants and pubs close by and Helix Rise is just a 5-minute walk from the massive Tesco Superstore.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer, looking for a place of your own or keen to move out of rented accommodation, Helix Rise is well worth a view, plus with our Shared Equity offer you could own your own home from less than £73 per week.
