Modern buildings are fine – but in Glasgow there is no such thing as an apartment.
Those huge rooms, decorative fireplaces and high ceilings are a homeowner’s dream – and more affordable than the million-pound mansions we often feature here at Glasgow Live.
This two-bedroom wonder is the perfect example, having been beautifully restored with period features to match a well-heeled Victorian building.
You will find it on Thornliebank Road, bordering Pollokshaws and a short walk from the lively bars and restaurants of Shawlands.
There’s the stained glass front door (a clue to the gorgeous stained glass throughout), then this living room with a traditional picture window and fireplace.
The floors were stripped down and traditional plinths and cornices were also introduced, restoring the place to its former grandeur.
The eat-in kitchen also has an original fireplace, as well as space for a table and chairs – rare in many Glasgow apartments, where you’re in luck if you have a cupboard to cook on. .
There is a double bedroom and a storage room with a built-in cabin bed to save space, and a traditional-style bathroom (with brilliantly retro flooring).
Add in the fact that you’re minutes from the motorway and Silverburn Shopping Center and we’re sold – especially considering the apartment is priced over £ 104,995.
The same size apartment could set you back over £ 160,000 in the Shawlands area – and they wouldn’t be half the style of this place – rushing to the bank?
