Stunning three bedroom duplex in prime "Park" location.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
