Magnificent Three Bedroom Apartment In Glasgow's Most Exclusive Neighbourhood

This elegant Victorian Period three bedroom flat is located in Hyndland in the heart of Glasgow’s fashionable and historic West End. Hyndland is the true gem of the West End; a virtually intact neighbourhood of Victorian tenements that is like traveling back in time. Located at the top of the hill in a quiet tree lined street above Hyndland Bowling Green, the apartment has unrivalled breathtaking views across the Westend skyline and, further afield, landmarks on the river Clyde, the Campsie Fells and the hills of Dumgoyne. This stunning traditional red sandstone flat of over 1900 square feet comprising of six spacious rooms retaining many original features, including period fireplaces in each room, hardwood floors, and corniced high ceilings. All rooms in this elegant flat are wonderfully peaceful and private, and the flat was recently included as a filming location for a BBC4 programme.

The lounge features dramatic views from an enchanting five window turret where you can watch the day start in this peaceful neighbourhood. The room is handsomely decorated with period furniture throughout and includes a television, multi-region DVD player and cd player. The recently renovated kitchen is very spacious and features a two sided cooking/preparation area, dishwasher, Nespresso and Delonghi coffee machines, panini maker, and a large kitchen/dining table which can seat four. An adjacent utility room includes a large fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/dryer. In addition, a separate dining room provides a lovely atmosphere for evenings, and can also serve as an office space for visiting professionals. Each comfortable and quiet double bedroom is fully carpeted and a long hallway leads to all of the rooms in the apartment, making each very private. All of the three bedrooms are uniquely themed and attractively furnished. Guests are provided with luxurious down comforters and pillows (non-allergen available on request) and plush bath towels. Free wifi is provided throughout the flat, and there is an extensive library of books, including regional guidebooks, for you to enjoy during your stay.

Make this your Scottish home in Glasgow and take home great memories of your stay. We look forward to welcoming you.

Excellent lodging for long-term stay in Glasgow

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded our expectations. We had seen on-line pictures of the flat, and wondered if the flat could be as attractive and comfortable as it appeared, and it truly was. It was the perfect base of travel for us while our daughter was graduating from the University of Glasgow. The owners have done a great job of preserving the historic setting of housing in Hyndland, and fitting it for very modern use.The space was quite roomy, with bedrooms for each member of our family, and it was all very well decorated. The view is tremendous, and we enjoyed seeing snow-covered hills in the distance. The kitchen is very modern, and has all the utensils you would need. In fact, we wanted for nothing in making our stay comfortable. The train station is only three blocks away, and a nice grocery is around the corner. We enjoyed it so much that we spent part of one day just resting in the flat. We can fully recommend this flat, and the kind attention that Margaret paid us when we arrived, and we would hope that we can return to Glasgow soon and stay in this Hyndland Apartment.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this spacious apartment with a well equipped kitchen and beautiful views. Not having visited Glasgow before we felt particularly lucky to have chosen a property in such a perfect location. We walked into the city most days but for those not feeling quite so energetic public transport is on hand. The local train station, Hyndland, is particularly convenient with regular services to Helensburgh, Edinburgh and beyond as well as Glasgow itself. Despite not having a car, shopping was no problem with many opportunities in the local area with its stunning architecture and lots of lovely cafes and restaurants to try out nearby. All in all a very enjoyable stay - thank you!

A Victorian Flat with all the modern conveniences!

  • 5 of 5

This exceptional flat is very spacious, beautifully decorated, quiet and comfortable for a week's stay or even longer! Beginning with a lovely in-person greeting from our contact person, Margaret, we felt right at home.Three lovely bedrooms with great linens and armoires for unpacking your suitcase, a fabulous dining room, comfy living room with a spectacular view, and best of all a large well-stocked kitchen encourages cooking with groceries from the convenient Sainsbury's or Peckhams. The location of the apartment allows for close walking to shopping, the subway and yummy restaurants. We explored the city and then booked a Rabbies Tour to Stirling, Loch Lomond and a distillery for day out. Don't miss seeing the Cathedral of Glasgow, Govan Old Parish Church (which has grave markers that date back to the 5th century!), The University of Glasgow campus and the Huntarian Museum with the Charles Rennie Mackintosh House. You are going to LOVE this flat...don't miss it!

We enjoyed a pleasant 5 night stay in this spacious west end flat. Margaret, the caretaker, was very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely return.

Spotless, spacious beautiful top floor flat in West End

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this beautiful, completely spotless flat! Each bedroom was spacious with luxurious bedding and plenty of storage. The kitchen had everything we needed, but I regret we never had a meal in the gorgeous dining room! The views from the bay window in the living room were superb and was the perfect spot to start and end the day, watching the clouds move across the vast sky with the hills in the background. The train is just a few blocks away, and there are many great restaurants just around the corner. I would highly recommend and hope to come back the next time we visit Glasgow. Margaret was excellent and took the time to explain how everything worked. It was a really great experience.

Absolutely fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful flat! Absolutely fabulous...a well-equipped kitchen, an elegant sitting and dining area and three gorgeous bedrooms.

Upon entering the first word out of our mouths, simultaneously, was...beautiful! And it was simply that.

We guarantee that any guest will love this apartment. Margaret was a great introduction to the flat and to Glasgow...what a gem! All in all a superb experience...perhaps the best of our month long tour.
