Building starts at iconic Burnside site

Date Published: 17/10/2016

ROSEWOOD HOMES today (Monday) announced that building work has started on the £3million Blairtum Park Development in Burnside which was delayed after vandals set fire to the historic Blairtum House.

Lou Lauder, the building company’s Construction Director, said essential work to clear the site of debris and make it safe following the arson attack in May had now been completed and conversion of the C-listed sandstone building and the construction of four luxury villas was under way.

Mr Lauder said: “We’re back on track and are on schedule to have the project finished by July next year. We’re building luxury flats and properties which will breathe new life into an outstanding, historic location.”

The renovated Blairtum House will be converted into a three-bedroom penthouse and two, three-bedroom luxury flats while the other area of the development will feature four, five-bedroom villas.

Prices range from £388,000 to £499,000 and more information can be found at or at estate agents Allen and Harris.

Mr Lauder said: “Unfortunately the fire delayed the project slightly but we’re delighted we’ve now started the building work on a development which will provide much-needed, attractive housing for this area.

He added: “We’d like to thank South Lanarkshire council who have been hugely supportive from the very early stages of the development, the planning process and throughout the delay caused by the fire.”
