The subjects comprise a former detached Victorian residential villa which was converted to a care home in the 1980’s and then modernised and extended in subsequent years.

The original villa is of stone construction extending over three floors. There is a substantial part two-storey and part three-storey brick built side extension, incorporating a conservatory between the two sections and the property has also been extended to the rear.

The property is accessed directly from Royston Road and there is front parking providing 7 car spaces, immediately adjacent to which is a generously sized garden area.

The overall site is approximately 0.23 hectare (0.57 acre) as shown outlined in red on the attached Ordnance Survey extract.

Lower Ground Floor

Day room/lounge with pantry/kitchen, 7 bedrooms (all with ensuite toilet provision), main kitchen, laundry, boilerhouse, plant rooms, toilets and stores.

We calculate that the subjects have an overall gross internal floor area of 1869.61 sq m (20,124 sq ft) approximately.

The property is mainly double glazed and there is a gas fired central heating system with a recently renewed boiler. Access to all floors is via a number of stairways and two passenger lifts.

We have attached layout plans showing the accommodation described above, however these are not to scale and are provided for indicative purposes only.


The property is situated in Millerston which is on the north eastern outskirts of Glasgow, approximately four miles from the city centre. The subjects are on the north side of Royston Road, next to its junction with Cumbernauld Road (A80) and enjoy convenient access to both the M80 and M8 Motorways.

Robroyston railway station is less than a mile to the north of the property and it provides frequent regular services to Glasgow Queen Street with a journey time of less than 15 minutes. Millerston is essentially a commuter suburb which has seen a number of residential developments in recent years in close proximity to the subject property. The subjects also have an attractive outlook, and a landmark location directly opposite Hogganfield Loch and Park.

The property is also situated a short distance from the recently opened sports and entertainment experience known as Golf It, a new concept from The R & A. This is focussed on golf but incorporates racket sports , leisure trails and street food provided by Big Feed. The development is aimed at adults, children , schools and the local community.

Ground Floor - 740.86 sq m (8,341 sq ft)

First Floor - 741.86 sq m (7,974 sq ft)

Lower Ground Floor - 353.79 sq m (3,808 sq ft)
