  • Type Apartment
  • SQ. FT 1033

Forming part of an iconic B listed building overlooking Queen's Park, this exceptional 4-bedroom duplex flat offers bright and spacious accommodation with views to the South over the Park and a flexible layout. Queens Park itself is a beautiful Sir Robert Paton creation which offers something for everyone, with manicured lawns, sport and recreational facilities and extensive views across the City towards the Campsie Fells and Ben Lomond. The blond sandstone building is entered via a secure entry door system into a communal close and stairwell. Accessed on the second floor, the accommodation consists of a reception hallway with kitchen and lounge off on the ground floor. A stair with half landing gives access to the second floor with upper landing and 4 bedrooms and bathroom off. The interior of the property has been sensitively renovated in keeping with the original character and retaining many period features. Reception hallway The reception hallway provides a welcoming entrance with the original wooden floorboards running the length of the hallway. Kitchen The dining sized kitchen is unusual with an exceptionally high ceiling, decorative panelling and the original wooden floorboards that have both been painted. Period features include an Arts & Craft wall unit, Victorian pine floor-standing larder cupboard and original Belfast sink. Additional storage is provided by shelving, some forming part of the original press, and under-stair storage. Walkthrough study/ storage The lounge can be accessed directly from the kitchen via an area separated off from the under-stair storage. This area is currently fitted out with shelves to provide additional storage. Lounge The lounge is dominated by spectacular views South over Queens Park and a feature fireplace with dramatic black stone mantel. This bright and spacious room, again with exceptionally high ceiling, has retained the original floorboards, decorative cornicing, ceiling rose and high skirting boards. Stair The stair is accessed off the reception hallway and has a double glazed roof window on the half landing to provide natural light. The original wooden bannister with decorative iron detail has been preserved. The 4 bedrooms and bathroom are on the upper floor. The upper floor may have housed the original staff quarters and have a completely different character to the downstairs part of the flat with sloping ceilings in the bedrooms and a more utilitarian feel. Main Bedroom This is a very large and sunny double bedroom with dual aspects and dormer with views to the South over Queens Park. Bathroom The quirky bathroom offers white tiling that offsets an original period free-standing, cast-iron bath with shower over, WC and custom-made unit for an up-cycled laboratory-type sink that serves as a basin. Other bedrooms The other bedrooms consist of another large double with original painted floorboards and under-eaves loft storage off, a further smaller double and a single bedroom. Natural light to these bedrooms is provided by double glazed roof windows. The property further benefits from sash and casement double glazed windows on the ground floor and in the main bedroom, gas central heating and excellent transport links. Although in a quiet side street with plenty of free, on-street parking, the City centre is within easy reach by Public transport from Queen's Park train station and numerous bus routes nearby. There is also easy access to the M8 and M77 and the Airport, which is a mere 20 minutes away by car. In addition, the South City Way is on the doorstep and offers a direct cycle route into the City centre. Queen's Park and the neighbouring districts of Strathbungo, Pollokshields and Shawlands are acknowledged for their high standard of local amenities and offer a good selection of independent shops, supermarkets, banks, library, health care facilities and a variety of restaurants and bars to suit every taste.
