Our lovely family home is a 2 bed flat located in a quiet cul de sac in the heart of Glasgow's West End, just around the corner from the beautiful Botanic Gardens and only a 5 min walk from subway, buses and award winning restaurants and bars
We have a lovely spacious tenement flat circa 1875 with private front garden that gets plenty of sunlight from front to back. With lots of character it definitely feels lived in and does not have a pristine 'just redecorated' look. What you will get here is somewhere to feel completely at home and comfortable in. With wooden floors throughout it's ideal for children and coping with those spills and accidents. We have 2 young boys and couldn't live with carpets! It has lovely high ceilings with original cornicing and a beautiful working fireplace to set a roaring fire in.
It's decorated with an eclectic mix of retro, up-cycled and mismatched furniture giving it a homely and unique feel with warm lighting throughout. It's a place where you can fully relax and enjoy this peaceful area of the wonderful West End.
Our flat will comfortably sleep 5 adults on the beds provided.
The south facing living room has large bay windows with a lovely view to the lower Botanic Gardens and some of the beautiful tall tress which line the River Kelvin. There is a dining table at the back of the room which sits 4 people but can easily fold out to accommodate a comfortable 6 or a snug 8. In this room you will also find a working fireplace which is wonderful for cosy nights in.
The master bedroom has one queen sized bed with handmade iron frame. The wardrobe is split into 2 sides and we'll clear one side so you'll have plenty of hanging space. You will also have full use of the chest of drawers.
The second bedroom is used by our sons and has a full-sized pine bunk bed with high quality mattresses. This is ideal for children or adults as the mattresses are adult sized. There is also a sofa bed which folds down to a comfortable small double bed. This obviously reduces the size of the room but provides more sleeping options for families, couples or friends. This sofa bed can be moved into the main bedroom if that suits you better.
If you have children then there are plenty of books and toys in this room which they are more than welcome to use.
The kitchen has all the usual appliances including fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and hob, toaster, kettle, slow cooker, juicer, ironing board and wide range of utensils.
We have a lovely private front garden with a space for children to play in and a quaint bench to relax on. It's also south facing so gets the sun for most of the day/evening and being in a cul de sac is quiet and calm. You can also sit outside in the back garden as there is a decked area with a table and chairs. Weather permitting this is a lovely place to sit and enjoy your breakfast or lunch.
Our well loved family flat is a little rough around the edges and a bit quirky but is perfect for families as well as couples or groups of friends who like to stay in a relaxed, warm and comfortable environment. We really do hope you enjoy staying here as much as we enjoy living here!
