Held within a stunning blonde sandstone former school building, this exceptional three-bedroom, ground floor conversion offers luxurious living quarters and has the much sought after advantage of landscaped private garden grounds and allocated parking space.
As mentioned, this beautiful contemporary home is formed within a stunning traditional school building which is situated on the Eastern elevation of Cecil Street, near Byres Road. Hillhead High School was designed by renowned architects H & D Barclay circa 1883 and is formed in beautiful polished ashlar with Greek detailing and an impressive main entrance. The building is surrounded by well-manicured gardens and there is a resident's car park at the rear which is accessed from a neat lane. The development has a beautiful external appearance thanks to extensive restorative works which were carried out during the conversion and indeed regular on-going maintenance which is conducted by the appointed factor messrs Taylor & Martin. For added peace of mind, the development had a modern camera entry system with keycode access for residents. The communal hall and stairways are presented in excellent order with bright décor, luxurious floor coverings and are extremely well lit when necessary. There is a modern high speed elevator for ease of access to all levels and this provides quick, easy access to the home for sale which is the only apartment and lower ground level within this element of the building.
As you will see from the attached photographs, HD video and Matterport tour - this is a breath-taking, luxury apartment which offers spacious, versatile living space and a stunning specification throughout. Most significantly, the apartment benefits from not one but two segments of private garden space which have been carefully designed by a well-known landscape architect who has carefully created a highly useable - yet extremely easy to maintain urban garden space. This element of the property simply has to be seen to be appreciated. The main living space has been formed with the private outdoor space in mind and no less than three sets of French doors open from the main public room directly into the grounds.
The marketing materials will continue to demonstrate the property's beautiful specification, impressive apartment sizes and surprising ceiling heights. The accommodation is bright and airy throughout with attractive, high quality fitted floor coverings and a combination of neutral, muted tones and some bright, more vibrant colours here and there including wallpaper from Bluebellgray. The property offers extremely comfortable accommodation that will be of great interest to professional couples and indeed those down-sizing from larger homes in the suburbs of Glasgow. To fully appreciate the style and calibre of the property, viewers are encouraged to visit the property in person. In brief the accommodation extends to; broad reception hall which provides access to all other apartments as well as fully-fitted utility cupboard, wonderful open plan kitchen, dining and living room, three substantial double bedrooms with two benefitting from in-built wardrobes, en-suite shower room which is accessed from bedroom number two and a large main bathroom with attractive tiling, large vanity mirror and white four piece suite.
