McSparran McCormick are delighted to present to the market this immaculately presented executive loft style apartment located on the 5th floor of the iconic Herald Building, situated right in the heart of Glasgow's Merchant City district.
The building is entered via the original main door on Albion Street with internal staircase and lift access to upper floor levels, where there are security coded doors leading to internal hallways. The flat itself is accessed from the shared carpeted hallway via a timber door, with an internal hall providing direct access to all apartments. The bright open plan lounge/kitchen, which offers delightful open aspects, has laminate timber flooring, two electric panelled radiators and recessed halogen spotlighting, with space for a dining table and chairs. The kitchen area is fitted out with a range of modern base and wall mounted storage units, with worktop surface areas, built in sink, drainer, hob, oven, extractor hood and fitted appliances.
The double bedroom also features laminate timber flooring, an electric panel radiator, recessed halogen spotlighting and fitted wardrobes. The quality tiled bathroom has a contemporary 3-piece white suite installed, comprising low level WC, wall mounted wash hand basin and panelled bath with shower fitment and curtain rail.
The most iconic of Merchant City landmarks, the neo-gothic tower of the adjacent Ramshorn Kirk provides an architectural juxtaposition to the sleek 'machine age' architecture of the Herald Building, a grade A listed property which was originally commissioned in 1937 by Lord Beaverbrook as one of three new buildings to house his national newspaper the Daily Express and later the Glasgow Herald. After the last printing presses were decommissioned in 2003 a £25m refurbishment of the nine storey building by FM Developers created 149 loft style apartments incorporating a residents' terrace on the fourth floor.
The property sits right in the heart of the Merchant City and is literally a few minutes walk from the Italian centre, George Square, City Centre shopping facilities and numerous popular bars, restaurants and nightclubs. In addition to this, there are excellent public transport services close by including both Queen Street and Glasgow Central main line railway stations and there is easy access onto the nearby M8 which links with the national motorway network and also provides easy access to Glasgow International Airport.
