**Unexpectedly back on market** A truly unique opportunity to acquire this "B"listed character home offering stunning accommodation in this stand-out property. Originally built in the early 19th century in the style of David Hamilton, this gothic villa with castellated tower has a fascinating history and the property is truly one of the most interesting and unforgettable homes introduced recently to the Glasgow market and we would thoroughly recommend an early viewing to truly appreciate its character and appeal. The Castellated Tower which is accessed by a spiral staircase gives stunning panoramic 360 degree views of all parts of Glasgow and beyond. The Tower has round -headed bipartites, some with hood- moulds and slits. It has been carefully and sympathetically maintained by the present owners and its internal presentation truly reflects the character and ambience of the home. The property sits close to Springburn Park and all local amenities and within very easy reach of both Glasgow City Centre and the West-End and all the many facilities including shops, restaurants, bars and cafes of those areas. There is quick access to the main motorway networks including the M8, M77 and M74 which link Glasgow to the rest of Scotland and beyond. The property sits within its own mature and well maintained private gardens with driveways at either side of the home and good sized garage provide ample off street parking. Offering flexible, well maintained accommodation on three floors and with attractive period features this is an unforgettable home.
