10 miles east of Glasgow sits the North Lanarkshire town of Coatbridge. Dating back to the 12th century, the town became a major Scottish coal mining centre in the 19th century. With The Quadrant Shopping Centre, central library, leisure centre and Summerlee Heritage Park, residents of Coatbridge have plenty of accessible amenities. With the M74 a short drive away, Coatbridge is a desirable commuter location, with Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling all within commutable distance. Leafy conservation areas to the north of the town offer pleasant semi, detached and terraced sandstone property.
