FLATS come in all styles, shapes and sizes. However, three on the market at the moment have the added distinction of being located within unique buildings.
Charing Cross Mansions, above, is said to have been the first and the grandest red sandstone tenement building in
Designed in Renaissance style by the architect JJ Burnet and built for Robert Simpson & Son warehousemen between 1889-1891, the centrepiece of the façade is a clock surrounded by sculptures.
Clyde Property is marketing a top-floor apartment in
Charing Cross Mansions that has windows in the roof and is much larger than it appears from outside.
It has a 21ft dining kitchen, a large living room with front-facing windows, bathroom, four double bedrooms and a large hall with a skylight window. Beautifully presented, it combines traditional features with modern fittings, including a contemporary kitchen and a smart black and white bathroom with over-bath shower, combed ceiling and Velux window. Offers over £255,000.
Part of Glasgow's art deco heritage,
Kelvin Court is another city landmark, comprising two brick-built H-plan blocks on Great Western Road. Designed by JW Fatkin and built in 1938, the flats are now B-listed, and a three-bedroom penthouse on the market with Slater Hogg & Howison provides an opportunity to live in grand style.
The accommodation includes a large hall, 20ft living room, dining room, dining kitchen, bathroom, separate WC, and three double bedrooms, one with French doors to a private balcony.
Offers over £350,000 are invited for this property.
Another gem is
Broughton Place, a B-listed baronial-style mansion house within a country estate and walled garden in the Borders village of Broughton. Although the building appears to be centuries old and displays all the traditional hallmarks, it was designed by renowned architect Sir Basil Spence and completed in 1938.
Currently for sale, a second-floor flat within Broughton Place combines all the elegance and grandeur of a bygone era with modern fixtures and fittings. Refurbished in 2005, the layout now incorporates a magnificent turreted drawing room and spiral staircase.
There is also a reception hall, sitting room, bespoke dining kitchen with integrated appliances, shower room, and three double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities. The property also has a private garden.
