Three bedroomed Duplex Apartment (ground and first floor). Very imaginative conversion of former School House. Character lounge/kitchen area with exposed roof trusses. Bathroom plus en-suite shower room and dressing room. Good sized utility room. Gas central heating and double glazing. Private residents' gardens. Car park with allocated space. This three bedroomed Duplex (two level) Apartment is one of only six properties created from the conversion of this handsome former School House. One very much, architecturally, of ''The Glasgow Style'. Drumchapel Public School was built in 1905 to a design that signified a form of ideal school architecture, reputedly as revealed in Glasgow's International Exhibition of 1901. Over the years it has been Drumchapel Primary School, a School for mentally disabled children and then The Thomas Fortune Work Centre. In 2005/2006 it was renovated and converted into six very individual apartments. The building is C Listed (Listed 1996). The developers also built two blocks of six modern flats each, all sharing the generous communal grounds that make up what is now named Garscadden Gate. The building is located within Old Drumchapel and is just along the road from the Railway Station and the excellent, much valued, all-weather courts of Drumchapel Tennis Club. This apartment occupies the main central section to the front of the building and is accessed via one of the two original entrance doors for children (Girls & Boys). This entrance is used only by Apartments 0/2 and 0/1. The layout is one where most of the accommodation is on the ground floor and this includes the property's three double bedrooms, the main bedroom which is a particularly spacious ''suite' that includes a large bedroom along with an en-suite shower room and a walk-in dressing closet. As clients will see from the floor plan the subjects are surprisingly roomy on this level and includes, in addition to the aforementioned, a very good-sized hall, a large bathroom and the benefit of a utility room. Upstairs is a more unique arrangement of a more intimate scale with the feature staircase ascending into an open plan arrangement of landing, lounge, and kitchen, set into the pitch of the roof and featuring Mackintosh inspired roof trusses and beams. Windows on this first floor level are all conservation style skylights. Unique, quirky, individual, different are all adjectives one could apply to this home. Hopefully our photographs, video and 360o tour will do it justice but truthfully only an actual viewing of the property would fully convey the character and style of this most appealing apartment. GROUND FLOOR Shared main door entrance, with apartment 0/1; private Reception Hall with two storage cupboards; main Bedroom Suite - large bedroom with a three-frame window to the front, walk-in dressing closet, en-suite Shower Room with an oversized shower enclosure with powerful thermostatic shower. Smart floor and wall tiling here, wall mirror, toiletries shelf, chrome towel radiator; Bedrooms 2 and 3, both with attractive window arrangements; Bathroom - a big bathroom with modern tiling and white suite, chrome towel rail; Utility Room - white high gloss kitchen units by Hygena, speckled pattern worksurface and a white sink. Discreet under unit lighting at eye level cabinets. Washing machine included. FIRST FLOOR A return flight staircase with modern beech and chrome balustrade/handrails ascends past the half landing area (could take a small desk and chair here) to an upper landing with Gallery; Lounge area set between two of the feature roof trusses; open plan Kitchen with flush fronted walnut style units and the same style of worksurfaces as the utility room below. Again, white sink. Appliances here include a new four burner gas hob, oven, and freezer along with an older fridge and built-in dishwasher. SPECIF
