Pollokshields is an affluent district in the Southside of Glasgow, just a few miles from the city centre.
The latest proposed Retirement Living development from award-winning builders McCarthy & Stone will be situated on the renowned ’Avenues,’ an affluent, leafy suburb and one of Glasgow’s most exclusive addresses.
Our proposed Platinum Retirement Living development has been designed so you can enjoy your later life in style, with 30 stylish one bedroom and 26 two bedroom apartments exclusively for those over 60.
All of our modern apartments are decorated in an elegant, contemporary style, and will boast fully fitted kitchens with an oven, hob and hood, chrome door furniture, oak doors and walk in wardrobes. A few extra little touches will be added to make your life easier, such as energy efficient heating, raised height electrical sockets and double glazed windows. Selected apartments will also feature a level access shower room, large balconies and heated towel rails. For extra peace of mind, we will also make our development completely secure, with a 24 hour emergency call system, camera entry system and fire detection equipment. Homeowners will be able to enjoy lift access to all floors, as well as a dedicated House Manager if you need anything more.
You’ll find everything you need on our proposed development – you’ll be able to enjoy the exclusive homeowners’ lounge where you can socialise with neighbours or friends, invite people to stay over in our special guest accommodation, and make the most of the warm weather on the gorgeous rooftop terrace and sun lounge.
Our development will also boast an enviable location in Pollokshields, right on the edge of Maxwell Park, a well-maintained green space with plenty of trees and a small pond. From there, it’s easy to get into Glasgow city centre. There is a reliable and regular bus service, as well as three train stations, the closest being Maxwell Park Station, just 400ft from your front door. For your daily needs, there is a Morrisons supermarket 0.4 miles away and a Sainsbury’s Local 0.6 miles away.
Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
Originally founded in 1849, Pollokshields is a former Burgh and current conservation area. It’s a great little spot to live, as it’s not only close to Glasgow, but it also has a strong sense of community spirit and plenty of local attractions. Pollokshields has managed to retain its Victorian charm thanks to its distinctive architecture and has a wide variety of locally-owned shops, cafés and restaurants. The famous Pollokshields Burgh Hall, designed by H. E. Clifford in the late 19th century, is located just at the other end of Maxwell Park, and the Pollokshields Church of Scotland is less than a mile from our proposed development. Pollok Country Park, which is home to Lochinch Playing Fields, Pollok Golf Course, Pollok House and Garden and the Burrell Collection museum, is just half a mile away.
Glasgow city centre is also easily reachable from our proposed development – it’s a quick 10 minute train trip from Maxwell Park to Glasgow Central. In Glasgow, you’ll have your choice of things to see, including the renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Glasgow Science Centre, Botanic Gardens, Glasgow Green, The People’s Palace and much more.
