Condo/Apartment
This is an exquisite double height apartment in a historic sandstone building in Glasgow City centre overlooking Glasgow Green. The building was built in 1856 as the premises of Robert Ramsey and Company who were dealers in hides, skins, wool and tallow and following this its main function was as a venue for auction sales. It was lovingly converted into luxury apartments between 1998 and 2000. It resides beside the 18th century church of St Andrew by the Green. Charles Rennie Mackintosh's handwriting appears on one of the original drawings for the building showing his early involvement in building design in Glasgow.

The building was built in 1856 as the premises of Robert Ramsey and Company who were dealers in hides, skins, wool and tallow and following this its main function was as a venue for auction sales. It was lovingly converted into luxury apartments between 1998 and 2000. It resides beside the 18th century church of St Andrew by the Green. Charles Rennie Mackintosh's handwriting appears on one of the original drawings for the building showing his early involvement in building design in Glasgow. The lounge and master bedroom have double height feature windows overlooking the park which are characteristic of the era in Glasgow. And there are beautiful tall ceilings throughout the apartment with a feature pillar and beam in the lounge. The building is iconic in Glasgow. Glasgow Green is the main park for Glasgow City which was originally established in the 15th century and is the oldest park in Glasgow. It is used for the major events in Glasgow such as the Highland Games, Festivals and major music concerts etc. The park draws a wide audience and Glagsow Tour buses route through the park to showcase the People’s Palace and an ornate terracotta fountain which is the largest and best example of its kind in the world. The People’s Palace houses botanical and tropical plants and is free to enter. There is also a popular café inside. There is also a German beer hall on Glasgow Green which brews on-site. There is a great children’s play area opposite the apartment on Glasgow Green and further along the park there is another Child's Play Village. From the apartment it’s just a short walk around the corner to St Andrews Square and then, a further 150 meters along (2 min walk), you are at the vibrant Merchant City with its mixture of trendy and refined bars and restaurants and theatre. And if you want to experience a real old fashioned Glasgow pub then there are plenty to visit within 200 meters of the apartment. The famous Scotia Bar is 300 meters away – don’t be put off by the exterior, it’s worth a visit. From the apartment It’s a 5 min walk to the start of the main shopping area in Glasgow (Argyle Street) and the recently renovated St.Enoch shopping centre. You can walk to the Royal Concert Hall in 15 mins. To reach the West End there is an easy underground system you can use. For the trains you are within easy walking distance to Queen St Station on George Square and Central Station. A taxi to the apartment from either station will cost around £4.50. The apartment has been furnished to a high standard and comprises 3 bedrooms, a lounge/dining room, kitchen and two bathrooms. The bedrooms are arranged as follows: Master Bedroom: Double bed with additional single sofa bed. Second Bedroom: Two single beds. Third Bedroom: Double bed. There is also a cot for a small child. The apartment can therefore sleep 7 people and a baby. There are two contemporary bathrooms. The first has a bath with shower over, WC and basin and the second has a shower cubical, WC and Basin. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need including pantry items which are free for you to use. There is also a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. The hallway houses a pulley up hanging rail for drying clothes to keep them out of the way. The apartment has full central heating, free Wi-Fi, a TV with free view channels, a DVD player with DVDs, a CD player with radio and Auxiliary cable for attaching your own i-Pod. There are also books and games for all ages. The walls are thick sandstone and as such hold heat well inside the apartment. Also in the lounge you have two large comfy sofas and a dining table for 6 guests with a highchair. There is also a bath bath and sink step for children plus children’s knives, forks, plates, bowls and cups. To the rear of the building you also have your own private parking space for the apartment with locking bar making it easy to come and go as you please and avoid the expensive private parking for this area. This is a great apartment in a great central location in Glasgow City Centre. Please note: For arrivals between 7pm and 10pm there is an extra charge of £40 to be paid to the property manager on arrival and £50 for arrivals after 10pm. Please ask in advance if a late arrival can be pre-arrangedMore

Apartment was cute and accommodated our whole family. There were two or three lights out in the bathroom with the washer/dryer which made it very difficult to see. It made it a very dim setting.
