The site of the former St Anthony’s Primary School has been transformed to provide 108 stylish new homes.
This popular new build project adjacent to Elder Park in Govan is a mixed tenure development and has been designed to offer a wide variety of house and apartment types that suit a wide variety of users. The homes are a hybrid between suburban and urban housing, and have a strong connection between inside and out. The various house types all have their own distinct character, yet share common materials and window proportions.
The development is situated on Govan Road with excellent transportation and amenity links. The project provides 55 flats and 53 houses, many with stunning views of Elder Park There are 59 homes for rent, 34 units are for outright sale and 15 units are shared equity ‘Homestake’ properties. Only recently completed in 2012, the housing development is proving to be exceptionally popular and recently won ‘Best Regeneration’ Award at the Herald Property Awards 2012. There are still some properties for sale, but if the track record of all the other CGAP housing projects is anything to go by, they won’t be available for long.
