Historic duplex apartment in highly sought after West End location.


Dowanhill Street is one of the most sought after addresses in the highly popular Dowanhill area of Glasgow's West End. The quiet and leafy surroundings make it an increasingly attractive place for downsizers and young professionals alike, as it is also within close proximity to Hyndland which in the last five years has transformed itself with a number of quality restaurants, bars, cafés and boutiques including Nick's, Café Source, Epicures of Hyndland, Jelly Hill and Cafe Parma, plus boutiques such as Solo and homeware store Amber & Black. Byres Road is also nearby and offers a Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, and numerous bars and restaurants. The Glasgow Botanic Garden is also one of the West End's finest attractions. The locality provides first class bus services via Great Western Road and Hyndland Road to the city centre and Hillhead underground station and Hyndland train station are only a short walk away.


117 Dowanhill Street is a beautiful red sandstone building with oriel windows typical of the period. Flat 0/1 is also blessed with its own little piece of private history in the form of the stunning stained glass set into a dramatic bow window above the staircase. This was designed by Edwardian architect David Barclay; the eight stained glass panes depict the four winds and the four seasons. The artwork is of such note that the property features on a historic tour of Glasgow.

Internally the property spans two floors with a spacious drawing room on the ground floor which is accessed via the main hallway with rich wood panelling and period features. The drawing room boasts two bow windows making it incredibly bright and airy. Hardwood flooring, decorative cornicing and an electric stove complement the traditional feel. A striking spiral staircase leads you into a deceptively bright and spacious, open plan kitchen and dining room. Fitted units at one end with a wooden work surface provide ample storage and include a carefully crafted curved run within the bow window. Other features of note are again the wooden flooring and the Belfast sink.

The principal bedroom is of a generous size with built in wardrobes and a fabulous window seat. The spacious suite also benefits from an en suite shower room with chrome heated towel rail and underfloor heating. The property includes a second bedroom, a recently modernised family bathroom and from the rear corridor is an area which is currently set up as a home office with additional storage to one side.

From the rear hallway access to the rear of the property leads up some stone steps to a raised communal garden which has been landscaped to form an area of lawn enclosed within a mature hedge which in turn has steps down to a paved patio suitable for a table and chairs. The front garden benefits from electric car charging facilities.
