Carluke landmark replaced with luxury apartments

A LANDMARK building in the centre of Carluke, derelict for seven years, has been bulldozed and replaced with luxury flats.

The Welfare Hall in Sandy Road, once a popular venue for dances, snooker enthusiasts and local events, was disused and became an eyesore after it closed around 2010.

Now Rosewood Homes, whose construction director is Carluke man Lou Lauder, has built a luxury development of 10, two-bedroom apartments, and two, three-bedroom penthouses on the site.

Prices range from £120,000 – £149,995 with three of them already reserved and show apartments will be available for viewing every day over the Easter weekend. All the flats will be ready for entry in May.

Lou said: “Carluke is growing fast and is increasingly popular with commuters to Glasgow, Edinburgh and surrounding areas both by train and by road.

“Sandy Road is in the centre of town within easy walking distance of schools, shops, medical centre, railway station, bus routes and the M8 motorway so it’s an excellent location.

“We pride ourselves on the quality of the homes we build and the reaction we’ve had from people who have already reserved flats in this development, and others who are currently considering buying after viewing them, is a terrific endorsement of what we do.”

This is the third major project undertaken by Rosewood in Carluke in the last two years. Last February the company handed over the first phase of an affordable homes development at Shieldhill Road to Clyde Valley Housing Association and the second phase is due to start in March.

The company is also building six luxury detached houses at Luggie Road, Carluke. The date when work is expected to start is to be confirmed.

Lou added: “We have established a reputation for delivering high-end workmanship over many years and because of that the Sandy Road and Luggie Road projects are already attracting attention from potential buyers.”

Rosewood is backed by Coralinn LLP, the investment vehicle of leading entrepreneur Hugh Stewart OBE.
