Located in the heart of Pollokshields, the property occupies a large, prominent corner site with dual access to St Andrews Drive and Maxwell Drive. The Category B listed property sits on a site area of approx. 0.329 ha (0.813 acres).
Constructed in 1875, the circa 10,000 square feet property was most recently known as the Glenafton Care Home and retains many attractive original features while having been extended a number of times.
It now comprises: the original house, an integral former owner’s flat, bedroom extensions, conservatory dining area linking to mews style office and ancillary accommodation in the former stables. There are, in addition, landscaped gardens, off-street parking, outbuildings around a gated enclosed yard and a bin storage area.
The property may be suitable in its existing institutional use or subject to planning permission returned to residential use as a spectacular individual home or redevelopment and easy subdivision to provide a number of substantial characterful dwellings.
St Andrews Drive is four miles south of Glasgow city centre in the leafy residential area of Pollokshields. The property is within two minutes of Maxwell Park. The city centre can be readily accessed from Shields Road subway station and access beyond the city is provided by the nearby M77.
DM Hall Partner, Jonathan McManus, said: “This building is a landmark property which, over the years, has had many admirers. The opportunities before its purchaser are intriguing.
“From a spectacular family home to a high-quality conversion to unique apartments, or again as a refurbished nursing home, the long-term attractions of Pollokshields as a highly-desirable area in which to live give me a clear sense that there will be a great interest in this handsome, imposing property.”
DM Hall operates a network of 25 offices throughout Scotland and employs more than 120 fully qualified surveyors. It provides a range of services from Home Reports and commercial property valuations through to building consultancy and property management.
