Berisfords are proud to offer this stunning Drawing Room conversion of one of the finest Grade A listed Buildings in Glasgow’s Park Conservation Area. This period property, constructed in 1838, is set within an imposing period Townhouse opposite its own well-tended Residents’ Gardens.
Occupying the entire First Floor of the original Townhouse, this elegant and beautifully presented two bedroom first floor apartment has been finished to a high standard throughout and boasts truly exceptional entertaining space. The fully furnished apartment is entered via a grand common entrance hall with original cornicing, which leads to an inner hall.
The most impressive space in the property is the 50m2 reception room with high ceilings, stunning ornate decorative plasterwork, original decorative marble fireplace and original wooden parquet flooring. This space has wonderful views over the private Residents Gardens towards the spires of Trinity House and Woodside Terrace also houses the dining area together with a fully equipped kitchen with integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer etc.
The spacious master bedroom with en suite shower room is to the rear of the property as is the other good-sized double bedroom.

There is a separate bathroom which is fully tiled and features a full width feature mirror on one wall.
Situated moments from the shops, bars and restaurants of Central Glasgow and within easy reach of the amenities of the West End, yet close to the green open spaces of Kelvingrove Park and its own private Residents’ Gardens, the property is in the perfect location. Charing Cross Railway Station is also nearby. Motorists can gain easy access to the M8 and Clydeside Expressway both of which are only a few minutes drive away.

History of the Property
Woodside Place was built in 1838 to mirror the elegant stretch of terrace known as Woodside Terrace built on the rise of the drumlin to its immediate north. Like Woodside Terrace, Woodside Place was also designed by George Smith, the renowned Edinburgh architect who was commissioned by McHardy and Fullarton, prominent solicitors turned property developers.
The area now known as Park was originally developed along the lines of Edinburgh New Town from parkland feued from the wealthy country house estates of Wellfield, Clairmont and Woodlands which originally lay at the edge of the rapidly expanding City of Glasgow. Whilst none of these estates remain today, the terrace line of Woodlands Place follows the original road to Clairmont House gates.
The property at Woodside Place was originally designed to accommodate the wealthy upper elite of Glasgow society who were looking to escape west from the pollution of the rapidly industrialising city. As with the majority of properties in the Park, Woodside Place became too large to suit the demands of the early 20th Century living and the property was used for the latter part of the 20th Century as office accommodation. The Townhouse was eventually redeveloped in 2002 into 3 separate apartments.
The architecture of Woodside Place combines the restrained use of Greek neo classic architecture with both central and end bays rising a storey in volume to strengthen the symmetry and rhythm of the block.
