Arguably the most impressive main door penthouse apartment in Glasgow’s West End. Extending to around 3196 sq ft over three levels and offering spacious and flexible living accommodation that is certain to impress. Set within the iconic B listed former Lilybank Church dating back to 1894 that was designed in gothic style by the renowned Glasgow Architect James Miller. Fully renovated into luxury accommodation and winning “Best UK Development” at the Property Investors Awards in 2018. The property oozes period character with exposed beams and stonework throughout as well as original stained glass windows, whilst offering a luxurious, modern standard of living. No expense has been spared in the quality of finish and this is immediately apparent on entering the grand main door.
This property really does have it all – huge accommodation, main door entry, large private gardens and two private parking spaces. It is nicely positioned on an elevated position on Great George Street, only moments from the thriving Byres Road where there are a vast array of trendy shops, bars and restaurants as well as excellent public transport links.
The internal accommodation comprises; main door entry via electronic keypad to a grand entrance hallway. On this level there are two large double bedrooms (the principle bedroom has a walk-in storage/ dressing room) and a Jack ‘n Jill en-suite shower room. There is an additional 3rd bedroom/ home office, a wc and useful utility area.
Stairs lead up to the first floor which is occupied entirely by an incredible open plan lounge/ dining kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with quality wall and floor units, integrated appliances and an island unit for casual dining. The double height ceiling gives a sense of space and the phenomenal gothic church windows flood the room with natural light throughout the day. There is plenty of space for a formal dining table and chairs as well as a cosy sitting area – a great place for entertaining. There is also a wc on this level and a useful storage cupboard.
The upper level has a fourth double bedroom with fitted mirrored wardrobes, a family bathroom with fresh white three piece suite, and a fabulous mezzanine sitting room. The sitting room offers flexible use and has aspects over the kitchen area below.
The specification includes gas central heating and security controlled entrance via video handsets. To the front of the property there is a beautiful landscaped garden offering a great space to relax outside in fine weather. Gardens of this size are not often found in the West End and it is fully enclosed with secure gated access. To the side there are two allocated parking spaces which are also accessed via secure electric gates.
This home is truly one-of-a-kind. There is simply nothing like it, so this is a rare opportunity to purchase an incredibly special home in Glasgow’s sought after West End.
