Apartment 0/2, No 29 Mansionhouse Road, Langside – A truly Unique Conversion within Boswell House, a historically noteworthy and most impressive Traditional Blonde Sandstone Mansion Home, circa 1860’s, subsequently converted in 2015 to form 4 individual homes.
Enjoying a tree lined border onto Mansionhouse Road, itself a particularly favoured residential locale on Glasgow’s popular South Side, this splendid conversion was completed by Ribbon Homes, also responsible for the stylish New Build Development adjacent.
Accessed from a welcoming carpeted communal/secure entry reception hall with a private main door opening onto its charming reception hall which provides the pause before entering into the truly breathtaking heart of this unique home – a stunning lounge with open-plan dining/kitchen adjacent. 7 windows draw daylight and views to this wonderful room with its vaulted/half-barrelled ceiling providing a dramatic overhead backdrop whilst the impressive traditional timber fireplace dominates the main wall, being almost full width with splendid decorative detailing including twin integrated book cabinets with storage below. Particular mention must be made of the stunning & substantial Art Nouveau stained/leaded central light fitting which is suspended majestically from the timber panelled recessed half-barrel feature ceiling (the light fitting believed by our owner to be by renowned Tiffany, however no formal documentation is available at present).
Adjacent to the lounge on open-plan style is a splendid dining/kitchen. The kitchen is very well appointed with a stylish array of cream/gloss floorstanding/wall cabinets, contrasting workstops & a comprehensive range of quality integrated appliances whilst a broad breakfast bar area is a useful additional feature. The dining adjacent provides space to seat/entertain guests for lunch, dinner, supper etc. A very stylish bathroom is situated off the reception hall and features a double size shower cubicle for convenience (shower rather than a bath).
The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. EPC – B. An appointed factor/property management agent oversees communal maintenance (exact details/costs to be confirmed). An added bonus is a useful allocated cellar storage area which is entered from the communal stairway/lower level within the building for added security. Included with the sale is a valuable private/allocated parking space whilst on-street parking is also available nearby.
Our owner advises that both the light fitting and fireplace are an integral part of the property and Glasgow City Council will not allow these fixtures to be removed (more details available from the seller’s solicitor) although the successful purchaser will no doubt embrace these stunning features which are part of the unique character of this particular apartment.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY estate Agents comments –
“ I am very privileged to have spent 30 Years within the estate agency industry, selling many fine and notable homes, particularly on the South Side of Glasgow.
This particular home easily deserves its glowing description because it is in every sense unique.
Importantly it manages to display its stunning character/features, drawing the wow factor from visitors whilst the contemporary quality fittings (bathroom/kitchen/flooring/decor etc) compliment in a very subtle manner …this results in a home which despite its wow factor, wraps itself around you and encourages you to relax.
I said when I walked through its door – this is a very, very special home …in my opinion it will be a very lucky buyer that secures the keys to Apartment 0/2. ”
