Beautiful B Listed Victorian townhouse with private parking.
120 Dowanhill Street is a traditional red sandstone, full townhouse in the heart of Dowanhill. Built at the turn of the last century by David Barclay, one of the architect brothers of the firm HD Barclay, followers of Alexander Greek Thomson, who were responsible for many notable local projects including Beaumont Gate, Kensington Gate and also the Glasgow Academy, the house has retained a wealth of fine original features.
Constructed over four floors, the property has a beautiful wood panelled reception hall, a magnificent drawing room, complete with oriel windows, typical of the late Victorian period, and an impressive length of Portuguese marble along one wall that was installed by a previous lawyer owner. The lower ground floor is currently split into two letting bedrooms, each with their own access to the rear courtyard and as such there is scope for commercial return, or indeed to operate as a self contained flat if one bedroom was used as a living room. The rear courtyard which is accessed via a separate lane, doubles as private off street parking.
The first floor is home to the four principal bedrooms and bathroom while the top floor is dedicated to a spacious fifth bedroom with additional WC.
There are areas of the property that require updating, but the potential of a full townhouse with private parking in the Dowanhill area makes this an incredibly exciting proposition.
To the rear of the property is a paved courtyard that is accessed from the end of Queens Gate Lane. This can be used as a garden but also has access through wrought iron gates suitable for vehicles.

It is rare to find a full townhouse with such potential. The top floor bedroom in particular is outstanding.Cameron Ewer
