Capelrig – A Peaceful Retreat a Few Miles from the Cultural Heart of the City Posted: 21st January 2019

Capelrig Apartments in Newton Mearns is an exclusive development of nine luxury 2 bedroom apartments. Each has private gardens or balconies and two allocated parking spaces, in a part of Newton Mearns where parking is at a premium.

Located in the heart of Newton Mearns, Capelrig Apartments are just a stone’s throw from The Avenue shopping centre with a range of amenities including Marks & Spencer, a large Asda supermarket, Waterstones, Boots and Superdrug pharmacies, several bank branches, independent cafes, clothes and gift shops, Costa Coffee and a range of eateries. The Avenue is a hub of the community – a place to shop and socialise.

For those who to get out and walk, Rouken Glen is close by, giving you access to 143 acres of parkland, woodland, streams, pond and walking routes to enjoy. This award- winning green space has everything you need including a thriving events programme featuring outdoor theatre and even a highland games. For fitness fans you’ll find tennis, golf and bowling facilities all within easy reach, as well as a gym at Parklands Hotel and Country Club.

Capelrig Apartments are well positioned for getting into the city and away from it all too. You are minutes from the M77, A77 and M8, and Glasgow International Airport is a mere twenty minutes away. Getting into the city centre is easy too, with regular trains to Glasgow Central from nearby Patterton and Whitecraigs stations. You’ll also be within walking distance to bus links.

We recently spoke to one of Nicol’s buyers who moved from Thorntonhall to be close to the amenities of Newton Mearns, she says:

“I find living in Capelrig so handy for the shops, and because I wanted to be close to my daughter and her family it was the perfect move for me. One of the things I love living in my apartment is the wonderful balcony and the views over the Mearns and beyond. I also loved the decor and the fact that it was move-in ready was a huge bonus. It’s great to have lift access too!”
