Property description

The building is located to the west of Elmbank Street, between St Vincent Street and Sauchiehall Street and within Glasgow City Centre.

The property is located a short distance south of Charing Cross railway station and is close to the M8 with access at Junctions 18 and 19. Regular bus services are close at hand and St Georges Cross subway station is within 10 minutes walk.

The property is located in an area of mixed use, with the newly created Sauchiehall Avenue, formed within Sauchiehall street being a vibrant location for casual dining and leisure uses, whilst Scottish Power's headquarters building and St Vincent Plaza (office development) are located a short distance south of the property.

The west side of Elmbank Street is characterised by period townhouse properties similar to the property, with occupiers including Sir Robert McAlpine, Scotwest Credit Union and Safestay Hotel. The east side of the street comprises The Old High School complex and it is understood this is to be re-developed for a mixed use scheme.

The property comprises a 'B' listed traditional 4 storey terraced townhouse building, which has been extended to front and rear. The building is accessed via a cantilevered stair which leads to ground floor level, which in turn provides access to the lower ground and upper floors.

The main building is constructed of solid sandstone, with a pitched, timber framed and slated roof, with the rear projection designed over lower ground and ground floor being constructed of brick with a flat asphalt roof.

Internally, the space provides accommodation as follows:

Lower ground floor: Large open plan room/hall, stores boiler room and male and female toilet facilities

Ground floor: Display window area, two rooms (currently used for storage), large room to rear (currently used as retail sales)

First Floor: Three offices and male/female toilet facilities

Second floor: Four office rooms, one of which is currently used as a tea prep area

The original townhouse building benefits from a number of original features including ornate cornicing, cupula, cast iron radiators and sash and casement windows.

The finishes are traditional within the main townhouse, with the accommodation being generally cellular. Floors are of concrete or suspended timber, with lath and plaster or plastered walls and lath and plaster ceilings, although some alterations have been made to the original finishes.

The more modern extension to the rear is mainly open plan with more modern finishes throughout.
