See our 360 tour at the weblink below. Stunning elevated Queens Park views. Expansive living space. Period detail. High standard finishing. Arguably the finest Victorian tenement flat in Langside.
Over 2,300 sq ft (221sqm) of living space. This is a unique mansion flat in every sense. Every room is packed with wonderful features. From the open plan lounge with dual aspect Queens Park views to the stunning new bathroom, 96 Langside Avenue is as luxurious as it is spacious.
The property is located on the 2nd floor of this three-level traditional red sandstone tenement flat. Entry is via a set of well finished storm doors with a unique fingerprint door entry system and video doorbell. A tiled vestibule with a further coded security door and alarm system provides entry to a stunning hallway with open floorboards. The 34-ft-long hallway immediately conveys a sense of space and luxury while providing access to all areas of the home.
A 19-ft-long dual aspect open plan lounge is arguably the property’s most stunning feature. Elevated views of Queens Park are breath-taking. Every season presents a wonderful view. The infamous snaking path up through Queens Park towards the reptile house is easily visible. Turn slightly to the right and the Langside monument sits atop of the hill. To the right is the beautiful Church On The Hill. This entire vista can be enjoyed from an oversized bay window with original intricate cornicing, large windows and period brass handles. An overhead lighting point illuminates the bay interior so it can be enjoyed at any time.
The lounge also has another window facing onto Langside Avenue and providing a different park view. A real flame gas fire provides a warm welcome on cold days. Another key feature of the lounge is open plan access to what is currently a home office. In all, approximately 35 feet of unbroken space runs from the lounge to the office/dining room. Within the current office a fireplace has been carefully reconstructed with new tiles and an original cast iron decorative fireplace. A further two windows here provide more park views.
A master bedroom is located on the quiet area of Mansionhouse Road. A bay window provides lots of natural light and a period fireplace and surround give visual balance to what is one of the most visually pleasing rooms in the home. Two large walk-in cupboards provide storage space not to mention possibly for future conversion to en-suite bathrooms if desired. One of the cupboards currently functions as a walk-in closet and removes the need for unsightly wardrobes. A modern TV acts as both a decorative picture frame as well as a functioning TV. This would not be included in the sale but wiring will be left intact. An Edinburgh Press shelving area sits neatly in the corner and combines practicality with period correct aesthetics.
