Outstanding two bedroom apartment in the famous GPO Building. Call now for your viewing
The GPO building has had a rich and deep history spanning 130 years. Designed by Robert Matheson and opened in 1878, the General Post Office in Glasgow immediately became the largest post office building in Scotland.
Only the second building in the city to have electricity (after St Enoch Station), this address has always been at the cutting edge and this follows through to state of the art security and stylish functional design. The Royal Mail moved out in 1995 and went to its new home in St Rollox. This half of the building was developed in 2001 as apartments, leaving the GPO as it stands today with luxury homes in various configurations.
Occupying one of Glasgow's best locations on the southern corner of George Square, the apartments share the building with some of the country's finest designer outlets including Hugo Boss and Ralph Lauren, while Jamie Olivers acclaimed Italian restaurant occupies the side on the square. Across George Square is Glasgow Queen Street Station with an abundance of transport links including trains, buses and taxis to make getting around the city easy. For drivers, the M8 motorway network is just up the road with an estimated journey time of 45 minute to Edinburgh by car. Buses run along St Vincent Street taking tenants frequently to the west end and other areas.
Enter the building through the plush, fingerprint entry vestibule, pass the on hand concierge and take the stairs or elevator to the 2nd floor where this fantastic property sits. Inside, a large reception hallway is floored with beautiful natural oak and provides access to all rooms, including the master suite. The lounge has the highest of ceilings and is beautifully appointed and bright with oak hardwood flooring, neutral decor and huge double windows bringing in the very best of the light throughout the day. You will notice the home is extremely quiet, even though the bustle of Glasgow's 'style mile', Ingram Street, lies below.
The kitchen, nestled to the rear of the stunning open plan living space is fully equipped with all high spec integrated appliances and ample work and storage space. The carpeted bedrooms to the front of the flat have built in wardrobes saving on extra storage clutter.
The family bathroom is very well appointed with three piece suite with modern tiled splash areas.
The heating is a state-of-the-art electric central system which will be light on bills, however with modern insulation coupled with the greenhouse effect of the large original windows, you are unlikely to need it.
This building is one of our city centre's favourites. Book your viewing today, and be one of the first to have a look at this wonderful city home.
