Buying in Bishopbriggs
The popular town of Bishopbriggs in East Dunbartonshire offers a lot for buyers. Its proximity to Glasgow city centre, amenities, and great transport links effectively make it a commuter town of the city, indeed it is estimated around 80% of the workforce commutes to work in the wider Glasgow area. It was ranked the 2nd most desirable postcode in Scotland to live in following a study by the Centre for Economic and Business Research in 2015 and 2016.
The history of Bishopbriggs stretches all the way back to at least the time of the Romans in Britain, as Cadder was a Roman fort on the Antonine Wall. Bishopbriggs as we know it today centres around ‘The Village’ and ‘Bishopbriggs Cross’, where the main train station and many of the town’s amenities, shops and restaurants are also located. There are also several local businesses to be found at Huntershill Village, which sits at the top of the Crowhill area, including a gift shop, garden centre and coffee shop. Bishopbriggs also has an extremely popular leisure centre, the Leisuredrome, which is one of the best equipped in Scotland. For the avid golfer the town also has three golf courses, including the Bishopbriggs Golf Club and the Cawder Golf Club. Right on the doorstep is Seven Lochs Wetland Park, the biggest wetland nature park in the country.
Besides train links, which run regularly through Bishopbriggs station to Glasgow Queen Street Station, the town has several bus services running regularly too. Additionally, the town has easy access to the M80 motorway which runs from Glasgow to Stirling and also connects to the M8 for journeys to Edinburgh.
The area is set to benefit from the recently announced (Feb 2020) £35 million City Deal project investment. The City Deal project, in partnership with Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and Glasgow City Council, will look to boost the East Dunbartonshire economy and sees an integrated approach to improve traffic and transport infrastructure within Bishopbriggs and connections to the north of Glasgow further still.
In terms of education, Bishopbriggs is served by six primary schools and two secondary schools: Bishopbriggs High and Turnbull High School. Both schools rank among the best in Scotland, with Bishopbriggs High being named Scottish State School of the Year in 2014 and more recently in 2017.
Bishopbriggs has an array of quality residential property types. There are some fantastic red and white sandstone Victorian villas in the area, as well as spacious bungalows, plus a host of new-build 3, 4 and 5 bed family homes currently in development by several national housebuilders. As of August 2020, the average price for property in Bishopbriggs stood at £215,408. This is a rise of 1.49% in the last three months (since June 2020). In terms of property types, flats in Bishopbriggs sold for an average of £138,616 and terraced houses for £137,776. However, this average hides quite a range, and it is not uncommon for larger detached sandstone properties to sell for well over £500,000. Likewise, larger, modern family homes regularly sell anywhere between the £300,000 and £400,000 range, with some achieving even higher selling prices depending on the area and finish or additions.
