Persimmon Homes


Livingston is the largest town in West Lothian, perfectly positioned in central Scotland. Your new home in Livingston was originally a farming community, then a mining town, then enjoyed significant investment as one of five new towns created to ease innercity overcrowding. As such, Livingston has retained much of its old-world charm, with independent shops and restaurants at its heart, but the town has also grown to enjoy great modern amenities such as cinemas, shopping centres, the Livingston Designer Outlet and adventure golf as well as brilliant transport infrastructure.

From your new house in Livingston, the road network and rail links to Glasgow and Edinburgh (with four trains every hour) makes Livingston a great place to live and commute. Convenience is one of the main reasons why your new home in Livingston continues to attract new investment, businesses, new schools and brilliant retail and recreational facilities.
