Project homes in the West End
We have recently been asked to sell three hidden gems in the West End that would make truly fantastic project homes. Amongst our high profile general stock, these are incredibly rare opportunities. An absolute dream for anyone who is keen to renovate or develop traditional property in Glasgow’s most coveted neighbourhoods of Jordanhill, Broomhill and Hyndland. As you can imagine, there’s a great deal of interest in these homes!
Queen Victoria Drive, Jordanhill
Offers over £299,000
This is a great development project with exceptional potential for a substantial family home in Jordanhill. Currently comprising 4 spacious bedrooms, two sitting rooms, a large kitchen and significant space within an attached annexe, this beautiful, two-storey detached villa is situated within large garden grounds. An exciting opportunity for any experienced or budding property developers out there! Find full details on the property here.
Marlborough Avenue, Broomhill
Offers over £199,000
Located on one of the most admired streets in the increasingly popular West End neighbourhood of Broomhill, this rarely available main door garden flat offers spacious accommodation and enjoys a beautiful outlook over residents’ private gardens. Comprising two double bedrooms, a generous living room, large dining kitchen and ample storage, the property has been incredibly well maintained but could benefit from upgrading and modernisation. Given the attractive price and rarely available nature of this property, early viewing is highly recommended. See full details here.
Turnberry Drive, Hyndland
Offers over £199,000
This property on Turnberry Drive is a rare find and one which is generating a huge amount of interest. A remarkable two bedroom detached mews cottage located in Hyndland, the property sits within mature and extensive garden grounds and benefits from a full-size driveway. Whilst the current accommodation is extremely attractive and in true move-in condition, the current owners have acquired planning permission and architectural designs for an extensive programme of renovation and development.
Why our client has loved living here: “We were first attracted to this house because of its garden. We had been living in a flat nearby but craved space and the peace that comes with living in a detached home but didn’t want to give up the West End lifestyle. This has been the perfect mix of the two. During summer days and evenings in the garden you would never know you were so close to all the amenities you could ever want. The off street parking and being only 5 minutes to the motorway which made our commute to work quick and easy has been an added bonus.” See full details on this property here.
Knocking Home Report values out of the park!
On average, the sales team in our West End branch achieved property sales of 4% above Home Report values in 2016. This is really great news for sellers and indicative of buoyant property market conditions in Glasgow West End.
One recent sale, however, has completely knocked that 4% out of the park, having been sold for considerably more than the Home Report value. Marketed at Offers Over £274,950, this beautifully presented 4 bedroom flat in North Kelvinside enjoys a preferred first floor position and is ideally suited to professionals and families alike.
