About this property

  • 2/1 Glencairn Crescent is an immaculately presented and generously proportioned first floor drawing room flat offering bright and flexible accommodation spanning to over 1400 sq ft. The property has been extensively upgraded in recent times by the current owners, and is finished to a very high specification, yet successfully retains much of its original charm with a variety of delightful period features. Such improvements include substantial rewiring, new boiler, timber flooring in the kitchen, sitting room and hallways as well as full redecoration. Additionally, the kitchen and bathrooms have been replaced and are beautifully appointed.

    A shared stair leads up to the first floor where the front door opens to the welcoming entrance hall which opens to a delightful sitting area with a west facing window with views towards Eglinton Crescent. The main living accommodation is accessed from this sitting area, with the beautifully appointed bay-windowed dining kitchen to one side, and the elegant sitting room to the other. The kitchen is a superb space with delightful solid wood units and granite surfaces. There is plenty of space for a large dining table also, and there is a recently installed log-burning stove in the fire place, with an impressive mantelpiece surrounding. The sitting room has a fold-down double bed, and can be comfortably used as a third bedroom, with a large and useful store room off. The two double bedrooms are situated to the rear of the property and both are generous in size and both benefit from working shutters. The principal bedroom benefits from a luxurious en suite shower room, while there is a further beautifully presented family bathroom adjacent. In addition there is a useful utility room.

    The property benefits from access to both Eglinton Crescent Gardens and the delightful Douglas Gardens on payment of a modest annual subscription.

The finish and spec of this flat is superb, and I particularly love the kitchen with the beautiful bay window. This is one of the best flats I've seen for a while.
