The four townhouses on Carlton Place in Glasgow city centre that house The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice are now on the market at a price of offers over £1.5million.
Overlooking the River Clyde, with spectacular views of the city, the four interlinked and extended townhouses have been the home of the hospice for more than 30 years.
They are now for sale with CDLH of Glasgow as the hospice is building a new home in Bellahouston Park, with patients and staff moving next year.
The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice provides free person-centred and family-focused palliative care and support to 1200 patients and families every year from a geographical area that spans Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, Cambuslang and Rutherglen with a population of about 345,000.
Its team of doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors, chaplains, social workers and volunteers, treat patients in their own homes, at other places of care, and in the hospice.
After more than 30 years of adapting and adjusting, it is building a new hospice to expand services, and this will allow us to offer 21st-century palliative care to young people aged 16 years and over for the first time.
“We started fundraising five years ago to bring in the £21million we need to build a new home, and with work well underway at the site in Bellahouston Park, the time is now right to put the Carlton Place townhouses on the market,” said Rhona Baillie, chief executive of The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
“The hospice has been here for more than 30 years and we have so many wonderful memories from that time. This is such an important milestone in our journey to our new home.”
The four townhouses cover approximately 35,000 square feet and are just a short walk from St Enoch Subway station, Buchanan Street, Princes Square, St Enoch Shopping Centre, Central station and Queen Street station.
The sale of the building will not complete until 2018, so the new buyer can apply and obtain planning consent to redevelop well in advance.
The total of the £21million Brick by Brick Appeal to build a new home for Glasgow’s Hospice has now reached £19.6m.
