Number 1 forms the end of a beautiful blonde sandstone terrace, set back from Prince Albert Road behind mature trees. The rear elevation faces towards beautiful resident's gardens - which this home has access to. In short, the property is completely unoverlooked and benefits from superb levels of privacy - despite it's convenient location.
As you walk through the stone pillars at the entrance to the address, under the branches of mature trees and approach the property, you will begin to note some of its unusual architectural features. Ornately leaded, stained-glass windows and a beautiful entrance doorway allude to the property's incredible internal architecture which simply has to be seen in person. 1 Princes Terrace is held beneath a traditional pitched, valley style roof which has been completely overhauled by the current owner including fresh leading and servicing of all rones & downpipes. At the rear of this beautiful family home you will find a substantial, enclosed South-facing garden which is laid to lawn with well-stocked borders and mature trees which provide the garden with natural shelter from the elements. Stone steps then lead down to a further well-garden from which there is access to the backdoor and three substantial storage cellars (beneath the lawn) which are ideal for tucking away outdoor furniture, bbq, bicycles, sports equipment etc. At the front of the property there is a further 'well-garden' which can be accessed from both the pavement and a door at lower ground level.
Whilst the building was constructed in 1870, it's interior was completely redesigned and renovated in 1900 for Henderson of Henderson & Co, one of Glasgow's leading shipping magnets. This detailed upgrade included some exceptional features such as a stunning secondary glazing system, an intricate stained glass front door (possibly of early or in imitation of Henri Goltzias artefeci) and an elaborately panelled and inlaid entrance hall. The formal dining room was treated to Italianate panelling, timber panelled ceilings, elaborate parquet flooring and marble chimney piece. The drawing room on the first floor was fitted out with elaborate deep plasterwork frieze, geometrically detailed ceiling and a further complex parquet floor. In other words, this is a truly unique character home which is ’A’ listed and features on the Scottish monuments list. Simply outstanding.
Today the property has been modernised sympathetically to offer extremely comfortable family living space which extends 15 principal apartments which are spread over four levels. The property has been re-wired (no mean feat when trying to protect A-listed original features) and has a modern gas-fired central heating system which was upgraded in 2016. The attached photographs, video and floorplan will give you some idea of the size, style and layout of this expansive, traditional family home.
