A DEVELOPMENT of luxury family homes in Greenock’s West End has now launched to the market with prices from £335,000.
Thirty homes are being built for CCG Homes at the former Greenock Academy site on Madeira Street.
The development — marketed as The Scholars — will consist of 24 terraced villas and six terraced houses.
The villas are a contemporary take on a traditional Victorian terrace, with three storeys, space for four bedrooms and an integral garage.
The 2.5-storey terraced houses will have three bedrooms, an open-plan ground floor and a ‘room in the roof’ containing a master ensuite bedroom that features a large rooflight.
A private rear garden and two parking spaces served by an EV (Electric Vehicle) charging point will also be provided for each plot.
The homes will have improved energy performance with an EPC rating between 90 (B) and 92 (A) achieved through enhanced building fabric and integrated solar panels.
CCG Homes managing director Calum Murray said: “A first project for CCG Homes in Greenock, we are delighted to present ‘The Scholars’; a development which is uniquely advantaged by its location in the town’s quiet West End just 300 metres from the Esplanade.
“I am hugely confident the homes we have to offer, each complete with luxury specification and market-leading energy performance, will be well received by prospective buyers who we look forward to meeting over the coming weeks and months.”
CCG Homes expect to open a show home in the summer with first entry for homeowners anticipated before the end of the year.
The 50-year-old Greenock Academy building was demolished in 2015. It closed in 2011 when the school merged with Gourock High to form Clydeview Academy in Gourock.
The building gained a second career and became familiar to millions of TV viewers UK-wide when BBC school drama series Waterloo Road used it as a set and production base but filming finished in August 2014.
Former pupils marked the building’s half century with an event in September 2014.
The upper part of the Greenock Academy site was developed as a pre-five centre in 2018.
