Time is running out for buyers seeking to buy an apartment in the iconic listed Cathcart House.

The second phase of the development has now been released and it is selling well while there are only four apartments left to be sold from the initial phase.

Located in the Southside, Cathcart House is an exclusive redevelopment of a landmark grade ‘B’ listed building that will provide 73 luxury apartments with a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats and 2 bedroom penthouses.

The apartments will be spread over five floors, benefitting from an attractive internal landscaped courtyard area. The building is built of attractive red brick and there will be lifts to all floors and allocated car parking space for the residents.

Cathcart House was designed by Scottish architect, Sir John James Burnet, and built by the Wallace Scott Tailoring Institute. It was completed in 1916, however plans to further extend the building began in 1919 and lasted until 1922.

Formerly known as the headquarters of Scottish Power since it was bought by the company on 1950s, property developer FM Group acquired the building in 2017 and has been extensively refurbishing it through a £40m redevelopment plan.

As a listed building, Cathcart House will retain its original hallway entrance and its marble staircase with decorative balustrades.

Prices for the apartments ranging from £173k to £349k for one to three-bed apartments, and from £366k for the two-bed penthouses, with first entries towards the end 2019.

The building is conveniently located near Cathcart and Mount Florida train stations providing quick & easy links into the city centre and only 12 miles away from the Airport.

In addition to its quality specification, residents can enjoy close access to different parks and to Newlands Lawn Tennis Club.

Robert Croll, sales manager at FM Group said: “We are very proud to be part of the redevelopment of this iconic building into luxury apartments.

“As a listed building Cathcart House preserves several majestic aspects of its original design, such as its hallway entrance and original decor.

“Its convenient location, both by being close to the city centre and yet surrounded by green areas have also proven a clear draw for people as we have experienced a high number of enquiries, and more than half of the building has already been sold.”
