An absolutely outstanding "A" listed two-bedroom luxury apartment built by the well-known Glasgow architect Alexander Kirkland circa 1855. This south facing flat forms part of the well renowned St Vincent Crescent, which is also a conservation area. Over recent months, the building has been completely restored with over £360,000 being invested. Retaining most of the original features, the apartment has received over £100,000 for internal renovation. This includes the restoration of the ornate cornice and ceiling roses, panel doors, Italian marble fireplaces and of course the beautiful large sash and case windows. This apartment is effectively a new build situated within a beautiful historic building. With an exceptional attention to detail, the current owner has modernised the property to an exacting standard with luxury finishes. These include an integrated sonos music system, bespoke Ernst Rust kitchen, with high-end Siemens integrated appliances, under floor heating both in the bathroom and kitchen, new cast iron radiators throughout and "Cat 5" internet cabling to both bedrooms and the living room.
In terms of accommodation, the property is entered through a secured door entry system and from there into a completely restored and painted close with stair. On entry to the property itself, there is a welcoming reception hallway with two large press cupboards acting as a cloakroom and storage. There is a very impressive large lounge with two south facing windows providing excellent natural light and a view of the Finnieston crane, a marble fireplace with gas fire and ornate cornice/ceiling rose above. There is a beautiful bespoke Ernst Rusk kitchen, with a host of wall and floor mounted units (providing generous storage) with quality integrated Siemen's appliances. The kitchen in turn also benefits from under floor heating. There are two double bedrooms, with the large master located at the front of the property, with a fully fitted walk in dressing room, marble fireplace with gas fire and ornate cornice/ceiling rose. The second double bedroom is located to the rear of the building overlooking the beautiful communal resident garden. The accommodation is completed by a luxury wet room bathroom with under floor heating.
In addition, the apartment has gas central heating with hive control, fully refurbished sash and case windows, has been fully re-wired and is probably the finest two-bedroom flat on St Vincent Crescent.
The property is situated in the heart of Finnieston (recently voted "one of the best places to live in the UK", Sunday Times 2019), and is around the corner from some of Scotland's finest restaurants, bars, and concert venues (including the sse Hydro/SWG3). The local area will also massively benefit from over £13 million for improved active travel and public realm enhancements.
Exhibition Centre railway station is only a two-minute walk, and there are frequent busses into the city centre. Resident permits for on-street parking are provided at cost of £85 per annum. Charing Cross Housing Association factor the property at a cost of £55 per month.
Early viewing of this exceptional property is recommended to avoid disappointment.
