Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated in the vibrant West End burgh of Partick, this fully renovated apartment provides peace and quiet and comfort for guests.
The apartment has been extensively renovated to a very high standard over the last 8 months.
Part of a traditional historic red sandstone tenement building, the apartment is on the second floor. As its a traditional tenement all the rooms have high ceilings which adds lots of character to the apartment. With the extensive renovation, the apartment is literally brand new inside but i've still managed to mix this in with the charm of an old tenement building. There is also a complete new Central Heating system within the apartment.
The apartment has a gorgeous internal kitchen with solid wood worktops, white high gloss units and slate tiles. Kitchen facilities comprise washing machine, under counter fridge freezer, oven, hob and microwave. All crockery and cutlery is provided.
The lounge is nice and spacious with a bay window looking out onto Exeter Drive/ Dumbarton Road. In the lounge there is a high quality Sofa Bed and a relaxing large armchair. There is a solid wood dining table with 4 chairs. A brand new Sony 42 inch flatscreen Smart TV.
In the bedroom, there is a brand new luxurious Double Divan Bed (with storage drawers underneath), Sealy Posturepedic superior mattress, oak wooden wardrobe and dressing table, mirror and stool and a bedside table with lamp for reading.
The bathroom really is gorgeous. Natural Stone Travertine tiles all over to give it that wet room feel/ look. Bathroom area has a toilet, sink and stunning double shower with overhead electric shower.
The apartment is ideal for two couples or for a family of four or even 2-4 friends. It is definitely a peaceful apartment and would suit most folk looking for a relaxing short break but with the option of having all the fabulous amenities of the West End/ City Centre available to them.
*The sleeping arrangements will be the Double bed in the bedroom sleeping 2 people. In the lounge the Sofa Bed will fold down to sleep another two people.

The apartment is in a great location, on the thriving Dumbarton Road. With easy walking to local bistros and classic West End eateries and shops, the hustle bustle is literally on your doorstep. A 15-20 minute walk takes you to Byres Road which is bustling with cafés, shops, restaurants and nightlife. The exquisite 500 year old Glasgow University, the beautiful Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Museum, Kelvingrove Park and Glasgow Botanic Gardens are all within easy walking distance of the apartment. For those that prefer not to walk there is buses galore more or less right outside the apartment taking you all over the West End/into the City Centre. I'm happy to provide further details to guests if required.
