Property description


All offers to caroline.

This magnificent West End home forms part of an elegant “B” listed red sandstone terrace designed by David Barclay and built between 1898 and 1907. The property falls within the Edwardian era of construction where the architectural detail provides stunning features such as wood panelling, stained/leaded glass and numerous fireplaces.

125 Dowanhill Street is one of the few full townhouses which is laid out over four main floors and has an incredibly versatile internal layout.

Overall, the house has nine main apartments including the garden level which has bedroom six (with en suite), a large utility room and additional storage. This floor is ideal for guests and has undoubted further potential.

The three main floors over ground, first and second offer a formal dining room, a surprisingly large living/dining/kitchen space, a first floor drawing room, five bedrooms and two bathrooms and a further cloaks/WC off the reception hall.

This unique house has a private front garden and a beautifully landscaped garden to the rear which has the particular bonus of direct access from the kitchen via two glazed doors resulting in the garden feeling connected to the house. There is a generous distance from the back of the house to the crescent behind which curves away from the property and gives an unusual amount of open space. Lastly, we would highlight the charming sun room area accessed from the sitting toom.

Located in the extremely convenient and popular Dowanhill area the house is exceptionally well placed for local amenities found on Byres Road together with excellent transport links, access to Glasgow University and also the Botanic Gardens.
