This is a wonderful first floor and drawing room conversion of an 'A' listed townhouse located in Glasgow's exclusive Park District. It was designed by architect Charles Wilson, circa 1855, and built in 1872 and finished in 1873. The building and property retain many notable features, such as the wonderful cornicing and original staircase with lion and thistle detailing. It was fully refurbished as part of a development in 2012 and has a modern contemporary and high-quality finish, perfectly and sympathetically mixed with many gracious traditional features.
The Park District of Glasgow is a very desirable place in which to live. Bordered by the beautiful Kelvingrove Park as well as the West End and City Centre, it is a quiet Victorian oasis built and commissioned for the city's successful merchants, synonymous with 'The Second City', when Glasgow was at the peak of its industrial and trading wealth. It can also be rather exciting too, as when during the 2014 Commonwealth Games the present owners had a grandstand view of the cycling races as they all went past their windows, or when filming takes place; only last year they had a request to use the building for a yet to be released feature film.
In terms of accommodation, the building is entered through a secured residents' door entry system, and from there into an elegant and spacious tiled hallway with neo classical pillars. This leads to the original staircase, now carpeted, which takes you up to the first and second floors.
Entering the property itself, there is a beautifully bright and welcoming reception hallway with a cloakroom and a guest WC. Then you come to an impressive drawing room with three large picture windows looking up towards the circus and all with working original shutters. Due to its south facing aspect this room benefits from the most incredible natural light, and with magnificent full height ceilings and with its intricate cornice and handsome fire surround, it creates an air of period elegance. The drawing room is open plan to a high-quality kitchen which, in turn, has Corian work surfaces and integrated Siemens appliances including dishwasher, double ovens and induction hob. There are two large double bedrooms, with bedroom two benefitting from fitted storage as well as an en-suite shower room with Porcelanosa fittings and tiling. The master bedroom has a Mezzanine level, accessed by a fixed staircase, which provides ample storage space. It also has an en-suite bathroom, with Porcelanosa fittings and tiles. Both bathrooms have heated towel rails and under floor heating.
In addition, the property has refurbished timber sash and case windows as well as a modern, and recently serviced, gas central heating system.
Park Circus Place has ample resident and visitor parking with resident parking permits available from Glasgow City Council.
