Stunning family home in the heart of Dowanhill with private gardens and a beautiful open plan kitchen.
51 Dowanside Road is a traditional red sandstone family home in the heart of the popular Dowanhill area of Glasgow's West End. These stunning houses are both striking in external appearance as well as being full of character and charm internally. Rich wood panelling, oak flooring, open fireplaces and a beautifully uncomplicated layout of grand reception rooms and generous bedrooms with the added benefit of a private garden make 51 Dowanside Road the perfect balance for modern family living. The enviable glass cupola floods the hallway and landing with natural light. Whilst the Oriel window in the drawing room and the full height sash and case windows throughout the property ensure that every room benefits from the same. The warmth the panelling brings to the property when teamed with decorative cornicing ensure that every room is comment worthy. Whilst the traditional elements are what defines this property, the modern touches and alterations, complete it. The creation of an open plan kitchen and informal dining area becomes the hub of the house and provides direct access onto the garden is a testament to the thought that has been applied.
The kitchen itself is a beautiful hand-painted Harvey Jones kitchen with a central island with Silverstone worktops, twin Belfast sinks, induction hob, Bertazzoni oven and Miele dishwasher. An abundance of cupboards plus the presence of a walk-in larder ensures there is ample storage through out.
The ground floor sees the best of the reception rooms with arguably one of the finest home offices in the West End and a dining room with decorative ceiling, original fireplace with carved wooden mantle and beautiful panelled walls provides the perfect entertaining space.
The first floor sees four bedrooms on each corner of the landing. All generous rooms with a bright and spacious feel, a Jack and Jill shower room is shared between two bedrooms and a bespoke hand-built reading nook has been added to a further bedroom. A family bathroom with a traditional roll top bath and Fired Earth floor tiles complete the floor.
To the rear of the property there is a fully enclosed south-facing private garden surrounded by a wrought iron fence with planted borders and a central lawn.

To find a red sand stone house that also has a kitchen of this quality with direct access to the garden is incredibly rare. For that reason alone I find this house to be a very special property within the context of Glasgow's West End property market.Cameron Ewer
