In Pictures: First look inside redeveloped historic Steiner School
A three-bedroom penthouse apartment that forms part of the New Steiner development and boasts the “best views” of Glasgow has now been completed.
Located in the city’s Finnieston area, the development comprises 20 two-bedroom apartments, 14 garden duplexes and two penthouses, on the site of the former B-listed Steiner School on Yorkhill Street.
The first of the two penthouses was recently snapped up in an exclusive off-market deal for an undisclosed price, achieving a record price for the area.
The historic Victorian building, which had been vacant since 2013, served as the independent Glasgow Steiner School for three decades. Now it has been brought back to life by Steiner Properties, which retained much of the original building’s character-filled features.
Savills associate director, Jennifer Goldie, said: “In over two decades of selling new build homes across Glasgow, I cannot think of one that has come close to matching the views from the New Steiner penthouse collection. They are undoubtedly the best views of Glasgow City to come to the market.”
A 180-degree vista from the roof terrace at the remaining available penthouse takes in major city landmarks including the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow University, Park Circus and many more as the natural light floods in through the apartment’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
Beyond the views and private wraparound terrace is a space brimming with both style and substance, as Jennifer explains: “The rest of the property certainly measures up to the stunning views, with three beautiful light-filled bedrooms, principle with en-suite, luxury bespoke bathroom and a stylish open-plan kitchen, living dining room.
“A unique selling point of the penthouse is the private fob key lift access, which sees you step out of the lift and straight into the heart of your home, while the principal bedroom boasts a bespoke walk-in-wardrobe which is yet another attractive feature.
“As with all the apartments in the New Steiner development, the penthouse is walk-in ready, already kitted out with high-spec interiors, including luxury Poggenpohl kitchens and contemporary bathrooms carefully designed by West One Bathrooms London.
“It’s not often you see a development come to the market fully complete and ready to move into immediately, and at a fixed price. That’s why we’re seeing a huge demand from buyers within the city, across Scotland and beyond.”
