One of the leading independent firms of chartered surveyors in Scotland, DM Hall, is marketing a landmark honey stone mansion and former nursing home in Glasgow.
Situated in the heart of the Scottish capital’s affluent Pollokshields neighbourhood, the former 23-bed nursing home is being marketed at offers over £1m.
The mansion is a Category B listed property and 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 as well as bedroom extensions and ancillary accommodation in the former stables.
Jonathan McManus, Partner at DM Hall, 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.”
While the property is a Category B development, it could also be returned to residential use (subject to planning permission) as a spectacular individual home or to provide several lavish smaller homes.
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.
