NEW TO MARKET
NTERIOR style aficionados could be bowled over by a newly marketed ground floor apartment in one of Glasgow’s most sought-after West End addresses. Cleverly redesigned and upgraded by the present owner, the property is situated within a blonde sandstone period townhouse in Princes Terrace, Dowanhill, where it benefits from a quiet, leafy setting whilst being on the doorstep of trendy bistros, bars and shops on Hyndland Road and Byres Road.
Seamlessly merging fine period features, high ceilings and spacious rooms with the finest contemporary fixtures, fittings and finishes, the interior’s pared back, simplistic style is visually arresting and offers the best of both traditional and modern.
Spanning over 1,000 sq ft, the apartment’s accommodation includes a hall, magnificent drawing room with front-facing bay window, feature fireplace and lavishly ornate plasterwork – and to the rear, a completely re-fitted, high-end kitchen with a south-facing aspect over immaculate communal gardens.
Key features include matt dual-tone flat-fronted units, integrated appliances (including a Quooker boiling water tap), movable hardwood breakfast bar and white subway-style tiling.
Oozing character, quality and style throughout, the apartment has two double bedrooms – a master with a full wall of fitted wardrobes and a broad bay window overlooking the gardens, while bedroom two enjoys the same, south-facing outlook from a window complete with stylish working window shutters.
Completing this super-stylish home is a large and very impressive bathroom – fully tiled and incorporating a separate shower and freestanding oval bath.
Other highlights include wood flooring, security entrance, on-street permit parking, well-maintained rear residents’ gardens and use of a large pleasure garden.
Offers over £380,000 are sought by Vanilla Square, Glasgow.
