According to Zoopla, the average value of Glasgow property has increased by almost £10,000 in the past 12 months, currently standing at a healthy £175,650. The upper end market is moving very well at Vanilla Square at present, with February 2017 being one of our best ever trading months since our inception. Viewing levels are up significantly in the first quarter of 2017, compared to last year and we have a lot of keen buyers on our books right now, ready to find their next dream home. A few recent sales stand-outs include:
A sale in less than 24 hours! We found new owners for this handsome 4 bed duplex on Rosslyn Terrace in Dowanhill. A fantastic return was secured for the owners, at over 10% above the home report value. It is an incredible, spacious property, occupying both floors of an impressive 1900s sandstone townhouse. Full of gorgeous period features, including original woodwork and cornicing, it’s a property full of character yet offers the comfort of a more modern home. A Paul Hodgkiss designed custom dining kitchen and a phenomenal L-shaped formal lounge area, complete with feature fireplace and large bay window, make for the perfect entertaining spaces. You get the peace and quiet of a leafy, suburban street but are just minutes from the action of Byers Road.
Another superb sandstone duplex recently went for above the home report value on Kirklee Terrace, Kirklee. With almost 40 viewers there was hot competition for this A listed property, at arguably one of the prime addresses in Glasgow’s West End. Sitting on an elevated position and looking out to manicured residents gardens, the property was designed by Alexander Kirkland in the mid-1800s, before more recently being converted into individual homes. Luxurious touches are found throughout, from the impressive entrance hallway with red carpeted sweeping staircase, solid oak floors, marble kitchen worktops and exposed brickwork. In addition, a rooftop terrace and private gate into the Botanic Gardens are unique aspects. A much sought after property, indicating the level of interest in homes at this value and in this exclusive locale.
Lastly, we have just agreed a substantial deal on a townhouse in the West End at over £1.2M, proving that property can be sold in various ways with the help of the right experts. The sale was arranged privately, using our extensive network to source viewers and without the hassle of public marketing. Needless to say the owners were delighted, much preferring this hassle-free arrangement.
