Forming part of a handsome Victorian red sandstone building in the Newlands area of Glasgow, this lower flat enjoys a wealth of period features and offers two double bedrooms, two reception rooms, a dining kitchen, and a bathroom, all enhanced by stylish, modern décor, fixtures and fittings. Externally, the home is accompanied by a private garden, a shared driveway, and a private parking space.
A shared entrance porch with stained-glass windows and Victorian floor tiles welcomes you inside and leads to a communal hall, where the flat’s private reception hall is accessed. Here, a glimpse of the tasteful interiors and period details is given, with pared-back décor, handsome wood flooring, and decorative plasterwork. On your left, you step into a living room, fronted by a large south-facing bay window (with stained-glass details) capturing sunny natural light. The room is neutrally decorated and fitted with the same flooring as the hall, and beautiful details add character to the space, including cornicing, a ceiling rose, a picture rail, a panelled window surround, and a fireplace flanked by two stained-glass windows with under-window storage. In the dining room across the hall, ample space is provided for a large table and chairs and additional furniture, and the room enjoys similar neutral décor to the living room, as well as the same flooring, a bay window, and a fireplace. The room could be used as a third bedroom, if desired and STPP. The kitchen is connected to the dining room, via a small internal hall with built-in storage, and offers additional space for a casual dining area. The kitchen is appointed with attractive wall and base cabinets, worktops, and splashbacks, as well as an integrated oven, hob, extractor fan, and dishwasher, whilst provision is made for freestanding appliances.
The flat accommodates two airy double bedrooms, both continuing the attractive presentation with neutral décor, cornicing, and picture rails, as well as fitted carpets for optimum comfort underfoot. The bedrooms both offer plenty of space for freestanding furniture and the larger of the two features an Edinburgh press. A stylishly tiled four-piece family bathroom completes the accommodation on offer, comprising a rolltop bath, a shower cubicle, and a WC-suite. The home is kept warm by a newly installed gas central heating system.
Externally, the flat enjoys a good-sized private garden, predominantly laid to lawn and featuring a patio, a decked dining terrace, and leafy trees and shrubs. A shared driveway leads to a private parking space.
