Buying in Thorntonhall
Thorntonhall, South Lanarkshire, is a village of roughly 670 people roughly six miles to the south of Glasgow and just a couple of miles to the west of East Kilbride, and likewise a couple of miles southeast of Busby. It sits just east of the boundary of East Renfrewshire, close to Waterfoot and Jackton.
Thorntonhall is primarily a serene and affluent residential village. It was originally just a farmhouse and farmland. As the farm prospered more buildings were added until it was purchased and greatly improved by a successful businessman grocer, who had shops throughout the west of Scotland. Another grand house was built in the area on Ravenscroft, on a small hilltop. These and the development of its own railway station were likely the catalysts for a grand plan to build a mini-Edinburgh New Town inspired suburb of crescents and avenues. Only three houses were ever completed before the onset of World War I halted further building.
The Thorntonhall we know today gradually came to be through the post-WW2 decades with the building of large luxury detached homes by affluent families. The relative isolation of the village likely posed an attractive prospect too, and now it is a well-established exceptionally affluent commuter village for Glasgow, believed to have the largest proportion of millionaires of any settlement in Scotland. Though it probably achieves this by having relatively few residents overall.
In terms of transport, the town benefits from a dedicated railway station to Glasgow Central Station. There are also regular bus services to surrounding towns like East Kilbride, as well as Glasgow and Edinburgh. The town is easily accessible by car from the nearby M77, M74 and a bit further the M8 motorway. The A72 acts as the primary nearby road for connections on to each motorway.
Residential property in Thorntonhall is currently at an average price of £851,497 as of March 2021. This is a rise of 0.47% in the last three months (since December 2020) and a good rise of 4.13% since March 2020.
