Gracious living

Built as a townhouse in 1855, the property has been converted into five apartments by Heritor’s, who specialise in refurbishing prime residential locations.

“The Park area of Glasgow is one of Scotland’s prime urban residential locations and 20 Park Terrace is one of Heritor’s best developments yet,” says David Alexander, the proprietor of D J Alexander, joint letting agent on the project (with Rettie & Co).

Original features of the townhouse give the development an element of grandeur, with its cornicing, cupola and wrought iron balustrade, and the apartments all have individual details such as a stone fireplace or wood panelled ceiling. With large living/dining areas and either two or three bedrooms, plus bathrooms finished in Italian marble, the properties range from £500,000 to £650,000.

Within easy walking distance of Glasgow’s business, shopping and entertainment districts, Park Terrace nevertheless has an air of quiet seclusion that sets it apart from the competition.
