The Maple - a most impressive 2 bed garden level home with private entrance and garden set within the James Salmon Building.
Glasgow architect James Salmon (1805 - 1888) would be proud of the restoration works being carried out by Charles Church to breathe new life into the handsome building he originally designed at Woodilee Village in Lenzie. Originally an administration building, the construction extends over three floors and is truly original throughout.
Charles Church is sensitively restoring the B Listed building to ensure original features such as the external crests, carved intricately into sandstone, and ornate downpipe goblets are preserved. Internally, existing archways are being incorporated within the hallway.
Rarely are such proportions and magnificence captured in restoration at this level, and the ceiling heights provide an air of spaciousness and bygone days. Replacement sash and case windows are vast and encourage light to dance throughout the apartments, casting shadows and creating interest.
Whilst celebrating the building's original features and beauty, modern living requirements are observed through a specification that won't disappoint.
Importantly, construction within this splendid area of Woodilee Village will be finalised upon completion of the James Salmon building allowing residents to enjoy edge-of-town living with a rural feel.
