This exceptional building, Nithsdale Lodge, sits on approximately 0.25 hectares (0.62 acres) and whilst formerly used as a care home and nursery, it presents an exciting residential development opportunity with consent to create 17 generously proportioned one to three bedroom apartments. Within the grounds of the former church, there is parking provision for the properties to the rear of the site accessed off Nithsdale Road. Pedestrian access is available from Nithsdale Road and Shields Road and there is also amenity spaces for bin stores, bike storage and a drying area for the residents.

The proposed plans for the property factor the non-load bearing partitions being removed leaving the steel frame, concrete floors and stair & lift cores. New partitions, floors and ceilings will be erected to form the apartments. The ground floor apartments will have access to private gardens; this will be achieved by altering the basement windows to forms doors with matching stonework. Solar panels are proposed to the South facing roof plane. The panels will provide power for the apartments and will be fitted flush to the surface of the roof. The flats, many of which are dual aspect, are laid out to be generously proportioned and to respect the layout of the existing window locations. The rear elevation extension will be replaced with a single storey flat roof extension finished in copper to the walls with a dark grey single membrane flat roof. The dark copper colour will complement the blond ashlar whilst appearing secondary to the listed property. The remainder of the site would be completed to form a mix of landscaped garden amenity space for residents.

The church has until recently been operated by a care home and a nursery which have both been closed, therefore the site would be sold with vacant procession.

This is a unique opportunity to create generous apartments with outside spaces and parking within an established prime residential area of Glasgow.

Nithsdale Lodge is located on the corner of Shields Road and Nithsdale Road, right in the heart of Pollockshields, a vibrant and historic neighbourhood located in the Southside of Glasgow. Shields Road is ideally placed with access to a range of local amenities including many thriving coffee shops, bars, delicatessens and restaurants, including renowned Six by Nico, Sur Lie and Strathbungo with all it has to offer in the vibrant south side area of Pollockshields. Several parks nearby offer a host of recreational activities with Maxwell Park being a particular highlight. A little further afield there is Springfield Quay with Odeon Luxe Cinema, Alea Casino and many other restaurants and bars.

Pollockshields is well-equipped with essential amenities, including several state and private schools, healthcare facilities, shopping arenas and restaurants. The proximity to Glasgow City Centre is another positive with excellent public transport links including Pollokshields West and East Stations offering regular services to Glasgow Central. Nearby Eglington Street offers quick access to Glasgow City Centre and the M77, M8 and M74 motorway links are also close by.
