Exquisite 3 bedroom upper duplex within iconic Park Circus.Location
Park Circus is the epicentre of the Park District, Glasgow's most beautiful and historic neighbourhood. Master-planned in the 1850s in response to demand for quality homes from successful merchants and professionals, Charles Wilson (one of the most important Glasgow architects of the Victorian era) created the sweeping crescents and curved façades of Park Circus to symbolise the crowning glory of what was then known as Woodlands Hill and the pioneering district of the West.
Twenty nine townhouses surround one and a half acres of immaculately kept gardens which were created then, and are maintained now, for the exclusive enjoyment of the residents.
Over time many of these houses were taken for offices and now the residential revolution is retuning and this now creates a rare opportunity to acquire an incredible piece of architectural history.
The Park area and the West End together make a vibrant hub of activity which attracts young professionals and families alike. Nearby Byres Road and Finnieston offer an excellent selection of specialist shopping, bars and restaurants. Recreational facilities and space can be found at Kelvingrove Park, Kelvin Hall and the Botanic Gardens.
A range of schooling can be found in the area at St Aloysius' College, Glasgow Academy, Kelvinside Academy and The High School of Glasgow with further education at Glasgow and Strathclyde universities.
Kelvinbridge underground station provides excellent commuting links to the city centre and beyond. The motorway network and city centre are easily accessible via nearby Woodlands Road and Charing Cross.Description
The property is a stunning duplex situated on the upper floors of this historic Charles Wilson designed townhouse. The property was converted and underwent substantial redevelopment by Detail developers back in 2018 with the current occupiers making some superb additional amendments. On entering the property one steps into a magnificent communal hallway with marble tiled floors, pillared vestibule and a superb staircase with cast iron decorative spindles and a polished wooden hand rail. This leads to the second floor where the flat has its entrance.
The property includes three bedrooms, all with en suite facilities furnished with Porcelanosa sanitary ware and all with underfloor heating. The master bedroom has a magnificent dressing area with fully fitted wardrobes and two bay windows looking back across the central gardens. The lower level is formed by the open plan kitchen / family room with a white Porcelanosa kitchen with breakfast bar and island with Corian work surfaces, integral subzero fridge and freezer and Siemens combination oven, grill and microwave. This room, as with all the reception rooms, is flooded with natural light and with three large sash and case windows it makes a truly wonderful heart of the house.
The drawing room again boasts three large windows, this time overlooking the park, as well as beautiful ornate cornicing, a marble fireplace with a flame effect gas fire inserted, and beautiful herringbone flooring which is continued throughout the entire ground floor. All the windows in the house are double glazed and where visible the window shutters are all in working order.
The views from the top floor of the building are arguably some of the very best in the city. The bright open spaces of the generously proportioned rooms and the impeccable quality of finish that is evident throughout make this one of the very best duplex apartments in the city.
