Kirkintilloch land sale to deliver 15 new homes
Fifteen new homes are set to be created following the sale of a former school in Kirkintilloch to a developer for an undisclosed sum.
St Agatha’s Primary School, situated on a one-acre site at the corner of Gartshore Road and Waterside Road, was sold to Panacea Property by DM Hall acting on behalf of East Dunbartonshire Council.
The developer aims to convert the original sandstone buildings into six flats and nine new build houses comprising a mix of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses, each with car parking and landscaping.
Graeme Todd, a partner in the agency department of DM Hall’s Glasgow office who oversaw the sales process, said: “Following an extensive marketing exercise, we secured considerable interest in the site which led to the setting of a closing date and the receipt of eight offers focused upon various proposals for residential development and conversion.”
Bruce Lindsay of Panacea added: “Construction will be starting at once and completion is programmed for early 2021, although advance marketing will get under way during the course of next year.”
