HD Video Available. A breathtaking, three bedroom, first floor and billiard room conversion which occupies the upper floors of an iconic, blonde sandstone mansion with a secure double garage and situated in one of Glasgow's most sought after locations.
Westbourne House is a large classical villa set within a prominent plot at the South East corner of Great Western Road and Hyndland Road. The property was constructed circa 1873, possibly to a design by Robert Turnbull who was a partner of Alexander 'Greek' Thomson. As such, the Westbourne House is instantly impressive and has a rich history which includes the construction of a 'Morning Room' extension to the East gable (not part of home for sale) which Charles Rennie Mackintosh was involved in the design of.
The villa has been converted into a total of four separate dwellings and the home for sale forms the first floor and attic levels. Access to the property is from Hyndland Road from which a wrought iron gate leads to the secure entry system for guests allowing access to the common hall, which then continues through to the front door of the conversion. There is a paved communal patio area by the front door and this fabulous home enjoys access to the Westbourne Gardens.
On entering the property, you are immediately drawn to the cupola which sits proudly above the grand dining hallway. It is apparent that a home of this stature with stunning features in such abundance is rarely found in the West End. Ornate stained glass windows frame the ceiling line and flood the entrance with natural light. The hallway provides access to all other apartments, throughout which beautiful period features include intricate cornicing, ceiling roses and traditional marble fireplaces. A flight of stairs leads up to the property's outstanding billiard room which retains original moulded timber panels, twin cupola and colourful stained glass window elements which encapsulate the entire room.
As you will see from the photographs, floorplan and video, this beautiful conversion has been maintained to an excellent standard with bright, fresh decorative tones that compliment the property's numerous original details. To truly appreciate the size, caliber and quality of the accommodation, buyers are urged to book an extensive viewing appointment during which they can take in the character and qualities of each apartment. In brief, the accommodation extends to; reception hallway with stunning dining area, prominent corner living room with orial window facing towards Lancaster Terrace, three impressive bedrooms, well-appointed kitchen, shower room which has been carefully re-fitted, and a full-sized games room at attic level. There is also a lower level by the entrance where you will find a sauna and shower area. Finally, the property benefits from a secure double garage to the rear of the building accessed off Westbourne Gardens. EPC Band - E
