See our 360 tour at the weblink below. This stunning mansion flat is possibly the finest of its type in Langside.
Beautiful elevated Queens Park views. Expansive living space. Period detail. High standard finishing. Arguably the finest Victorian tenement flat in Langside.
Over 2,300 sq ft (221sqm) of living space. This is a unique mansion flat in every sense. Every room is packed with wonderful features. From the open plan lounge with dual aspect Queens Park views to the stunning new bathroom, 96 Langside Avenue is as luxurious as it is spacious.
The property is located on the 2nd floor of this three level traditional red sandstone tenement flat. Entry is via a set of well finished storm doors with a unique finger print door entry system and video door bell. A tiled vestibule with a further coded security door and alarm system provides entry to a stunning hallway with open floorboards. The 34 foot long hallway immediately conveys a sense of space and luxury while providing access to all areas of the home.
A 19 foot long dual aspect open plan lounge is arguably the property's most stunning feature. Elevated views of Queens Park are breathtaking. Every season presents a wonderful view. The infamous snaking path up through Queens Park towards the reptile house is easily visible. Turn slightly to the right and the Langside monument sits atop of the hill. To the right is the beautiful Church On The Hill. This entire vista can be enjoyed from an oversized bay window with original intricate cornicing, large windows and period brass handles. An overhead lighting point illuminates the bay interior so it can be enjoyed at any time.
The lounge also has another window facing onto Langside Avenue and providing a different park view. A real flame gas fire provides a warm welcome on cold days. Another key feature of the lounge is open plan access to what is currently a home office. In all, approximately 35 feet of unbroken space runs from the lounge to the office/dining room. Within the current office a fireplace has been carefully reconstructed with new tiles and an original cast iron decorative fireplace. A further two windows here provide more park views.
A master bedroom is located on the quiet area of Mansionhouse Road. A bay window provides lots of natural light and a period fireplace and surround give visual balance to what is one of the most visually pleasing rooms in the home. Two large walk-in cupboards provide storage space not to mention possibly for future conversion to en-suite bathrooms if desired. One of the cupboards currently functions as a walk-in closet and removes the need for unsightly wardrobes. An Edinburgh Press shelving area sits neatly in the corner and combines practicality with period aesthetics.
A newly renovated bathroom is another room competing for title of best room in the home. Completely re-modelled from the floor upwards with quality finishings and a range of well considered improvements. Porcelain floor and wall tiles provide the base for a large glass fronted walk in shower and large bath. Every part of the design has been carefully considered. The bath is slightly recessed into the bay window which provides a bath large enough for two. Quality fixtures and fittings have been selected to compliment the design. The shower is of overhead pan design and has an external start button. The shower tray is colour matched to the room and the simple glass separator provides a contemporary boutique hotel feel. A bathroom specification speaker is mounted in the ceiling and enables music or TV to be enjoyed while relaxing in the bath or simply getting ready for work. Speaking of which, a mirror TV adds a touch of unashamed decadence. This presents as a normal mirror when off. Finally, daylight balanced ceiling spot lights provide natural light and a movement sensor activates floor level lights to add some illumination during darkness.
The kitchen is very well proportioned and welcoming. A newly installed breakfast bar provides a convenient place to sit and chat during dinner times. The bay window features a custom built seating area. This side of the building provides a great sunset view and the elevated seating area is a cosy place to sit and read or talk during meal times. Large storage cupboards with washing machine and dishwasher provide good practicality. A new quality Franke sink/tap unit along with Neff gas stove completes the functional side of the kitchen. A raised beautifully tiled cooking area provides an elevated position to prepare meals and chat with guests.
The second and third bedrooms are of similar size to the master bedroom. One facing Mansionhouse Road, the other onto Langside Avenue. Ornate decorative ironwork railings are present externally. Bedroom two has a bay window and a beautifully re-created decorative fireplace with a contemporary but period correct set of tiles. All set in a marble fire surround. The hallway contains additional large cupboard spaces.
Communal areas are well maintained, the garden is pleasant and the Blossom tree is stunning in early Spring time. On-street parking exists on Langside Avenue, Mansionhouse Road and the surrounding streets.
Langside is only moments from Shawlands Cross. Shawlands is blessed with an ever increasing eclectic mix of quality cafes, arts/crafts shops and restaurants. The city centre can be reached in 15 minutes and areas like Strathbungo provide a great variety of quality places to eat and drink. Some of Glasgow's finest schools such as Hutchesons' Grammar School are nearby.
This stunning mansion flat is possibly the finest of its type in Langside. Park views, expansive living space and quality features. A heart warmingly beautiful and welcoming space to live. See our 360 tour at the weblink below
