Without doubt one of the most impressive family homes on the market in an enviable Dowanhill location with private south facing garden.
11 Princes Gardens is a handsome, B-listed, blonde sandstone townhouse built circa 1891 and offers flexible accommodation over three levels and extends to 3778 sq. ft. One of the most appealing features is the beautiful extension off the kitchen allowing direct access onto the south facing, private garden, a space that is very much conducive to modern day family living and extremely rare to find in such a grand West End townhouse.
The accommodation comprises: a stunning welcoming reception hall, beautiful impressive oriel bay window sitting room with feature log burner and useful storage cupboard; to the rear of the property is an amazing dining/kitchen that has a large breakfast bar and extended dining space with partial glazed roof that allows natural light to flood through; there are also bi-folding doors leading onto the decked area of the private rear garden. Completing the ground floor is a useful WC off the kitchen, large cloakroom and boot store, fantastic utility room and useful home office, with direct access onto the garden.
On the half landing, as you ascend a wonderful, original staircase you are met by an incredible stained glass window display; there is also a guest room with bay window and shower room. On the first floor is the original drawing room with feature gas fire place and oriel bay window and the principal bedroom is situated to the rear with a lovely en suite shower room.
On the top floor, there are four very well-proportioned double bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a family bathroom. The cupola allows light to fill the whole top floor.
In summary, this very impressive family home offers flexible accommodation. There are two public rooms, a study, large dining kitchen, six bedrooms, four bathroom/WC facilities, excellent storage and a highly sought-after south facing garden.
The property also benefits from a wealth of period features including, decorative cornice-work, wood panelling, breath taking stained glass and mosaic tiled entrance. There is also gas central heating and residents permit parking is available on request via Glasgow City Council. Finally, the property has access to residents’ pleasure gardens and some of the images shown are from the peak of the Spring months.
