With its west facing terrace, uninterrupted views of the city skyline and an underground car parking space, this seldom available style of one-bedroom loft apartment meets the demands of modern city living. It is situated on the ninth floor of The Herald Building and occupies an incredibly convenient location within Glasgow's popular Merchant City. The striking building was originally completed in 1937 for Lord Beaverbrook as the flagship premises for his Daily Express newspaper and laterally as the Glasgow Herald's printing press and head office; the building underwent redevelopment into 149 modern loft style residential apartments circa 2005. The property itself is arguably on the preferred side of the building with its quiet west facing aspects over the Ramshorn Church and grounds. The wall of windows spanning the length of the living room has two patio doors opening onto a very usable terrace. Generously proportioned, the open plan accommodation is bright and airy with laminate flooring to all main apartments. It has an impressive living/dining room spanning 5.5m with an offset bedroom; a generous hallway of over 4.3m, suitable for dining or use as a study - ideal if you are working from home. In addition, the development has its own private residents' courtyard on the east side of the building. It is exceptionally well placed to take advantage of an enviable selection of local amenities including every day and leisure shopping, a great selection of restaurants and bars and excellent transport links. Accommodation: Security entry system; communal entrance with lift and stair access to each level. The flat itself has a welcoming reception hallway, ideal as a study or dining space; it has two storage cupboards and access off to all main apartments: main living/dining room with a wall of ceiling to floor windows and two patio doors providing fabulous west facing views and access to a private terrace area; set back from the living space is a sizable double bedroom area with fitted double wardrobe, room divider panel blinds and doorway to the hallway; modern style kitchen with a range of base and wall mounted units and integrated appliances to include oven, hob extractor hood, fridge freezer, washer dryer machine and dishwasher and black granite worktop; bathroom comprising white three piece suite with over bath shower. There is laminate flooring, electric heating, double glazing and the added benefit of an underground car parking space. The property has had one careful owner. Situation: Located in the heart of the Merchant Centre, this stylish apartment fits in well with the high-end designer shops nearby on the Style Mile of Ingram Street, Buchannan Street and Argyle Street. There is a wonderful choice of restaurants, bars, local cafes, delis and supermarkets. Transport links are on the doorstep via bus and by rail; Glasgow Queen Street, High Street and Central Station are all within a few minutes' walk. Strathclyde University and Research Centres are on the doorstep and the Royal Infirmary hospital is nearby on High Street. The property is exceptionally well placed for road links including the M8 motorway network. Travel Directions: On foot from George Square head east along George Street, continue along passing the junction with Montrose Street and continue towards the junction with Albion Street, turn right into Albion Street and head south towards Ingram Street where you will find the entrance to No. 145 on the right hand side two-thirds of the way down the street. Once inside the building take the stairs to level LG where you will find access to the car park and passenger lift to the 9th floor.
