Situated on the perimeter of East Renfrewshire and South Lanarkshire, the tucked away village of Thorntonhall is widely associated with substantial, one-off period villas and similarly sizable, contemporary detached homes.

But for those seeking the convenience of a one-level apartment, a recently built luxury development by Westpoint Homes offers a solution: a top floor, two-bedroomed apartment newly on the market with far-reaching open views over the residents’ garden grounds and surrounding countryside at the touch of a lift button from the ground floor communal entrance.

Other incentives include a private loft space echoing the apartment’s 1,200 sq ft footprint - and access to an on-site residents’ private leisure centre, which includes a swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, conservatory sunroom, and gym. The property also has a secure garage and residents’ parking.

Only three stories high, Ravenscourt has a particularly attractive façade and lift access to all floors. Inside the apartment, a 24ft L-shaped entrance hall creates an immediate sense of space and light while paving the way via double doors to a large, open plan kitchen and dining room, the former fitted with contemporary units, integrated appliances, and island breakfast bar.

The Herald:

The adjoining living room has sliding door access to a covered balcony with plenty of space for furniture – there is also a shower room, and two spacious double bedrooms with built-in wardrobe storage, while the principal bedroom has the added benefit of a luxuriously appointed en suite shower room (both shower rooms fitted with rainfall showers).

Thorntonhall is a quiet, leafy village with only a tennis club and railway station (on the East Kilbride-Glasgow Central line), however, it is only minutes away from the neighbouring high amenity suburbs of Newton Mearns and Clarkston, East Kilbride town centre, and access to the Southern Orbital, M77 and M8 to Glasgow and the Ayrshire coast.

The Herald:

Offering all the spatial advantages of a house with the bonus of a pool and fitness centre, 39 Ravenscourt is a dream home for downsizers and professionals.
