B-listed former Glasgow care home up for sale

A mansion in Glasgow’s Pollokshields area, which formerly operated as a 23-bed nursing home, is being marketed at offers over £1 million by DM Hall.

The B-listed property was constructed in 1875. The circa 10,000 square feet facility was most recently known as the Glenafton Care Home and retains many original features while having been extended a number of times.

It now comprises the original house, an integral former owner’s flat, bedroom extensions, and conservatory dining area linking to mews-style office and ancillary accommodation in the former stables.

DM Hall said the property may be suitable in its existing institutional use or – subject to planning permission – returned to residential use.

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.”
