A truly exceptional, refurbished full townhouse on one of the West End's most desirable streets
13 Kingsborough Gardens is one of the finest examples of a traditional, red sandstone townhouse to be found in the West End of Glasgow. The current owners embarked on a fabulous refurbishment and remodelling of the property creating a beautiful, bright and versatile family home. The property has been subject to a detailed restoration programme resulting in a magnificent five bedroom property with a stunning extension to the rear creating an open plan kitchen/dining/snug area with sliding glazed door doors opening to an enclosed rear garden. The quality of the finishes in the bespoke handmade kitchen are exceptional with integrated sub zero fridge and freezer, barista-style coffee machine and integrated Wolf and Miele multi-function oven, five ring gas hob and a Perrin & Rowe instant boiling water tap.
The drawing room is beautifully presented with a wood burning stove, decorative cornicing and traditional bay window, which then opens to a fabulous study with newly fitted parquet flooring and bespoke cabinetry.
The extension to the rear has been designed to create an easy flow between the hub of the house and the other reception areas. The sliding glazed door to the garden, skylights and clever use of internal windows maximise the natural light throughout the property and great practical use is made of the space available with the added children's playroom, snug and utility areas.
The principal bedroom would originally have been used as a first floor reception room and as such is of especially generous proportions, with a magnificent bay window overlooking the Kingsborough Gardens and a beautiful ornate ceiling. The fireplace in the bedroom was reclaimed from a period house in London and the chimney has been lined so this room could potentially be reinstated as a drawing room with open fire if desired. From this outstanding room there is access to a spacious en suite bathroom with underfloor heating and a striking Lusso stone freestanding bath with additional double shower unit and press cupboard. A further bedroom and family bathroom complete the first floor.
The second floor comprises three further bedrooms and a wet room. All bedrooms are of generous proportions and those to the front of the house overlook the well maintained central pleasure gardens'.
The refurbishment has been carried out with incredible attention to detail with a collection of Victorian radiators being fitted throughout which included some replumbing work. The windows have also all been refurbished.
The resulting property is one of superb quality, character and modern comforts that is rarely seen and forms one of the most special family homes in the area.
Garden and Grounds
To the rear of the property is an enclosed garden with paved parking area, an area of artificial grass and additional patio. There is a video phone entry system and electric security gates providing access from Kingsborough Lane to the garden and parking. An electric car charging point has been installed.
