The Alamo is located within the highly desirable West End of Glasgow and on the edge of the iconic Kelvingrove Park. Situated close to the vibrant area of Finnieston with its numerous bars and restaurants as well as being quite literally on the edge of Kelvingrove Park, the property is well positioned for capitalising commercially as well as forming the basis for a superb family home.
Other nearby attractions include Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (one of Scotland's most popular visitor attractions), the University of Glasgow and the SSE Hydro arena.
The Alamo occupies the ground and lower ground floor of a double fronted sandstone building on the edge of Kelvingrove Park and Finnieston. The property, dating from 1880, is striking in appearance and bears all the trademarks of the Victorian era, while the interior displays exceptional design flair and attention to detail thanks to the current owners, and it is perhaps this level of finish that impresses most.
The reception areas are all generous in size and bright, due to the remarkable height of the windows and ceilings, and have been subject to bespoke hand painting, picking out the delicate decorative patterns in both the ceiling plasterwork as well as the period cornicing. The ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms (seven en suite) throughout the property are all individually thought out, yet well balanced and complementary of each other. Details such as the lighting around the bath, stone basins and beautiful freestanding copper baths are just some of the highlights to look out for. The thought and sensitivity behind the design is evident right down to the choice of taps, radiators, curtain fabrics and light fittings
While the property is currently used as a successful boutique guest house with excellent reviews and commercial promise the property would equally make a superb family home. Well balanced over two floors with some of the most elaborate decoration combined with wooden floors and period fireplaces, the property could be easily adapted to create a comfortable and characterful private home.
Private wall moated garden, wrapping around the entire front West and South facing aspects. To the rear of the property is a shared garden which comprises an area of patio with planted borders on either side, an area of lawn and a perimeter stone wall with natural sandstone finish.
