Glasgow townhouse is truly unique Scottish based one-stop-property-shop, G1 Property Group, unveiled plans recently to market a one-of-a-kind, four-storey townhouse in Glasgow’s Dowanside Road - located in the city’s affluent West End – with a price tag of £1.5 million.

A property in a league of its own, this stunning five-bedroom red sandstone home, dated from 1862, carries the prestige of being the city’s first and only townhouse with a feature stairwell leading from the ground floor into the back garden, an attribute that will appeal to ‘the bespoke’ buyer.

Dylan Short, Managing Director of G1 Property Group, said: “As with every property in our portfolio, we’ve endeavoured to enhance all unique features, and I expect the townhouse’s signature stairwell, among other individual characteristics, will excite most people interested in this type of residence.”

The home itself is accessed via an attractive elevated entrance, complemented by a beautifully crafted solid oak door. Off the entrance, buyers perusing the property will find an elegant reception hall with feature lighting, cloak room and WC.

The lower ground and upper ground floors are home to six of the property’s beautiful public rooms, perfect for entertaining family and friends. There, residents benefit from a generously sized cinema room, a grand living/dining area, a stunning dining kitchen, and a formal dining room and a study – potentially bedroom number five, depending on the purchaser’s preference.

Upstairs, over the first and second floors, buyers will find the home’s four ample bedrooms, where the master boasts a luxurious en-suite shower room. Other living spaces include a large family bathroom, a convenient utility room and kids’ playroom.

Modern touches are subtle throughout. An elegant range of contemporary/neutral colours and tones have been used on the walls, contrasting effortlessly with oak and tiled flooring.

As with every G1 home, the company has infused new technology anywhere possible, brining Dowanside Road into the 21st century. The property is Sky+ and Sky HD enabled and comes with a Speakercraft cinema surround-sound system. There is also a four zone multi-room hi-fi and plasma tv installed, and wireless internet and Wi-Fi throughout with multi ipod connections. Dancing flame remote fires can be found in select areas, backed up by gas central heating with added mega flows.

Dylan adds: “We’ve spared no expense during our recent renovation work, where we upgraded and refurbished the entire home. In addition to adding more modern finishes we’ve created a balance between the contemporary interior decoration and other period characteristics. The most striking of these details include the stained glass windows, a cast iron banister, decorative ceiling cornicing and external carved pillars and panels, dated from the late 1800s.”

The accommodation itself offers a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ owing to both its interior style and an enclosed rear garden, providing the new proud owners with their own private haven.

The property’s proximity to the city’s West End only adds to its allure, where residents can get acquainted with the area’s endless cultural offerings, including numerous art galleries, Kelvin Grove Public Park, and countless restaurants and boutique retail shops.
