Beverley Brown presents a couple of traditional Victorian options that highlight tenement living at its very best …


IN Edinburgh’s West End, Savills is marketing an outstanding two bedroomed garden flat in Manor Place near St Mary’s Cathedral. Developed to an exceedingly high specification, it mixes period charm with contemporary style.

This flat’s unique selling point is an open-plan kitchen/dining room housed in an extension at the rear, a fabulous space with wood flooring throughout that incorporates sleek handle-less kitchen units, island breakfast bar, dining area (with doors onto a patio) and opens into an adjacent sitting room with a small study. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the second bedroom has a dressing room and is served by a large bathroom.

Outside, the flat has an enclosed, garden, two sizeable cellars and a private parking space for one car – a major asset.

Offers over £550,000 are invited.


LIVING is easy in an upgraded B-listed tenement flat in Glencairn Drive, Pollokshields on the south side of Glasgow close to Pollokshields West train station.

There is nothing common in the communal entrance, which retains original painted glass windows and beautiful tiling and the pared-down, chic, four-apartment home which has sanded wood floors and ornate plasterwork.

There is also a superb modern dining kitchen with a walk-in pantry, and a refitted fully tiled bathroom with separate shower and additional basement storage. There is an attractive communal rear garden.

An exceptionally desirable home – for sale at offers over £260,000 with Rettie’s Newton Mearns office.
