If you’ve followed our blog over the last few years, you’ll know that we love the West End and believe it to be a great part of Glasgow. Recent property value figures that have been released for 2017 seem to suggest that more people than ever are thinking this too!
Property research cited in The Herald suggests that values in the G12 district of Glasgow— think classic ‘West End’ areas, like Hillhead, Dowanhill and Cleveden, rose by 7.18% over the last year, indicating that there’s an increasing demand for property as more people seek to move into the area. In all, that means that the value of property in the G12 area stands at an impressive £4.27bn.
You don’t have to take our word for it though. We’ve sold a huge variety of properties across the West End in the last year. Here are some highlights that demonstrate just how buoyant the local G12 property market is:
Hughenden Cottage, 7 Montague Lane
With a remarkable 10 offers and an impressive 93 viewers, Hughenden Cottage achieved a lot of interest when it first went on the market. This spacious, three bedroom bungalow, nestled in a quiet and peaceful part of Hyndland, provided a rare opportunity for buyers looking for a home which combined seclusion and privacy with the benefits of city living.
It’s not surprising then that it sold for 24% over its Home Report value!
5C Kirklee Quadrant
We pride ourselves on the expert, bespoke advice that our two directors provide to the owners of each of the properties that we sell. With 5C Kirklee Quadrant—a majestic, converted townhouse in the Kirklee area of the West End—our director Steven recommended that the flat was dressed professionally to help emphasise the exquisite period elements that the property benefited from.
As a result, it sold within a week!
2 Rosslyn Terrace
This superbly presented property in a converted sandstone tenement block is one of those properties that has a characteristic ‘West End’ look. Only a few steps away from buzzing, Byres Road, in the sought-after Downhill area, 2 Rosslyn Terrace is exceptionally well-placed, with great links to nearby shops, the Kelvinside Academy and the Botanic Gardens.
It sold for over 26% of its Home Report to a cash buyer!
5 Rosslyn Terrace – VS117016
In the same beautiful tree-lined street as the previous property, the sale of 5 Rosslyn Terrace demonstrates just how popular the West End of Glasgow is becoming. Again, beautifully presented like so many homes in this area are, this property achieved a great 10% over the value cited in its Home Report.
What’s even more impressive is that 5 Rosslyn Terrace sold to a cash buyer on the first day that it hit the market too!
