Lot 5 53 BURNFIELD ROAD, GIFFNOCK G46 7PY Sold for £210,000

Income Producing Workshop and Yard with Vacant Offices, Basement Workshop and Parking. In total 215 sq.m. (2,314 sq. ft.) on 0.07Ha (0.173Acre). Potential Residential Redevelopment Opportunity.


Giffnock is an attractive and prosperous town, situated between East Kilbride and Paisley, and is some 8 miles south-west of Glasgow City centre. The administrative centre of East Renfrewshire, Giffnock straddles the A77 (Fenwick Rd) where there is an excellent range of local and national traders, the latter including Morrisons Supermarket, Lidl and Majestic as well as several national car dealerships. Giffnock railway station provides regular services to Glasgow Central and East Kilbride.

Heading south on the A77, pass the Morrisons Petrol Station, Majestic Wine Warehouse and, immediately prior to the Lidl store, turn right into Burnfield Road. Follow Burnfield Road west and as the road bears to the right, the property is on the left, opposite the Burnfield Care Home and immediately beyond the turn for Torburn Avenue.


The property comprises two buildings situated on an irregularly shaped site, which enjoys a prominent location with an excellent frontage to Burnfield Road. The Ground Floor Office and Basement Workshop, which are being offered with vacant possession, comprises a detached part single, part two storey building, constructed of rendered brick and concrete under a flat roof. The additional Workshop, which is being offered subject to an occupational tenancy, comprises a detached single building with walls clad with painted profile sheeting and a pitched steel frame roof, which is also clad with profiled sheeting. Hardstanding to the front of the office provides space for two cars, whilst the yard surrounding the workshop provides parking for the tenant of the building.

The lot offers an interesting opportunity with a) the vacant accommodation suitable of the continuation of its most recent use, b) an income stream from the tenanted building and c) a background of a longer-term redevelopment opportunity (see Planning below).

In 2005 conditional consent (in outline) was granted for the demolition of the existing buildings and the erection of a dwellinghouse on the site (Ref:2005/0282/TP). It should also be noted that in 2009 consent for the erection of a residential development (in outline) was granted for the large site lying generally to the north and north-west of the lot (Ref: 2009/0368/TP). Whilst both consents have now lapsed, they clearly point to the establishment of the principle of residential redevelopment being an acceptable option for the property. Interested parties should make their own enquiries to East Renfrewshire Council Planning. Email: planning@eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk
