Experience country life between two cities, with a new home in Latham Park
Discover our new development of two, three and four-bedroom homes in West Calder, a traditional village surrounded by glorious countryside but with easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and a range of shops and services.
Sitting on the outskirts of West Calder, Latham Park has everything you need for a perfect work-life balance, whatever your lifestyle. The village is a friendly and active hub with a range of independent shops and eateries; further benefits include two well-regarded schools and a train station with commutable routes into Edinburgh and Glasgow - booming centres of industry with culture, activities and nightlife to match.
For moments of quiet between work, schooling and shopping, you need only venture a few minutes from the development to enjoy the fresh air and picturesque surroundings of local nature reserves, reservoirs and country parks.
Whether you’re commuting for work or just enjoy having a big city within easy reach, Latham Park is perfectly situated to provide access to Edinburgh and Glasgow, which can both be reached in approximately 45 minutes by car or rail. In either you’ll find an enormous range of attractions, events, shops and restaurants, in addition to major train stations and international airports.
For all your retail needs, Livingston Centre and Livingston Designer Outlet are just 10 minutes from Latham Park, together offering around 150 shops including supermarkets, high street stores and luxury brands.
Latham Park benefits from proximity to a number of well-regarded schools. West Calder High School, within easy walking distance of the development, was recently recognised among Scotland’s top-performing schools, ranked 28th in the country. For younger children, Parkhill Primary is another well-respected school in West Calder, while nearby Livingston offers an excellent range of schools for all ages.
West Calder is surrounded by swathes of rolling countryside. Just over a mile away is Addiewell Bing Nature Reserve, a lovely place for walking and spotting wildlife. From the reserve you also have great views of the distinctive Five Sisters Bings. Five Sisters Zoo, just a few minutes away, provides a great family day out.
15 minutes south of Latham Park is Cairns Castle and Harperrig Reservoir, another popular spot among nature lovers, while Almondell and Calderwood Country Park can be reached in 12 minutes, with over 220 acres of beautiful woodland, parkland and rivers.
