With development opportunities in the G71 postcode area at a premium, new homes in Bothwell and Uddingston are always newsworthy. Earlier this week, CALA Homes (West) broke ground on a forthcoming development beside the River Clyde, in Bothwell's sought-after Silverwells district.
Situated along Old Bothwell Road, this scheme has been in the pipeline for many years. When it's completed in 2019, Riverside will comprise a dozen apartments in a new four-storey building, plus twelve detached villas along a cul-de-sac. These will be radically different from conventional CALA house styles, ranging from 2,814sq ft to 3,800sq ft.
Although this site has attracted controversy due to limited vehicular and pedestrian access along Old Bothwell Road, these new Bothwell homes will be hugely sought after . The two and three-bedroom apartments are likely to be particularly popular, since new apartments in Bothwell are extremely rare. Some of the villas will enjoy panoramic views over the Clyde, as befits a development of this name.
