Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, city centre location ideal for transport, shops & sights

Miller Street is a two bedroom duplex apartment located in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Situated within a conversion of a Belle Époque era substantial merchants’ warehouse the property benefits from high ceilings on both floors. The lower floor consists of a 35m2 open plan lounge-kitchen-dining area with large windows extending to the ceiling. It’s a perfect space for gathering with the family, sharing drinks with friends or relaxing after a long day exploring all that the ‘Second City of the Empire’ has to offer.

The apartment has been recently refurbished to include a new fully fitted kitchen with stylish gloss white units, high specification appliances, solid walnut worktops and a breakfast bar. The kitchen is open plan with the dining and lounge space. This features two large, comfortable leather sofas and a dining table suitable for six. The walnut flooring, neutral décor and newly installed lighting complete this welcoming space. The lower floor also includes a convenient WC. From the shared hallway there is access to a well-kept outside terrace space with seating areas.

The upper floor consists of two bedrooms and a separate bathroom. The master bedroom is luxuriously appointed room with its own en-suite shower room. This is newly installed and includes a generous 1200mm wide shower enclosure. The adjacent second bedroom contains two single beds, although these can be joined to form an extra wide double. Both bedrooms include ample newly installed built-in wardrobe space. The bathroom contains a bath with shower over. The apartment can sleep up to 6 with the use of the sofa bed in the lounge.

The apartment is within walking distance of Queen Street and Central mainline stations and also Glasgow Bus Station (Buchanan Street). The airport bus service drops off near Queen Street station (~30 minutes journey). Local transport within walking distance includes Argyle Street station and St Enoch and Buchanan Street Subway stations. Glasgow also has an extensive bus network.

The apartment is located at the west end of the Merchant City area of Glasgow and a stone’s throw from George Square. Whether your visit is for shopping, dining, night life, entertainment or as a base for exploring it is perfectly positioned.

Miller Street is positioned between the pedestrianised shopping thoroughfare of Argyle Street and Ingram Street, where you’ll find many of the city’s high end boutiques. Buchanan Street, the centre of Glasgow’s ‘style mile’ is less than 5 minutes’ walk away and the city’s main covered shopping areas of Princes Square, St. Enoch Centre and Buchanan Galleries are all within easy reach.

“Boasting the UK’s largest retail phalanx outside London, Glasgow is a shopaholic’s paradise. The ‘Style Mile’ around Buchanan St, Argyle St and Merchant City is a fashion hub, while the West End has quirkier, more bohemian shopping options.“

- Lonely Planet: Great Britain

The Merchant City is at the vibrant heart of this cosmopolitan city’s restaurant and bar scene. Establishments such as the Corinthian Club, Citation, Hutchesons, Polo Lounge, The Metropolitan, Merchant Square, Browns, Jamie’s Italian and Café Gadolfi are all within a short walk.

Glasgow is a city famed for its music scene, having spawned the likes of Primal Scream, Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand, Orange Juice and Chvrches. In the Merchant City you have some of the city’s best known music venues on your doorstep.

A short walk away is the renowned Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA). Also within walking distance are the Barrowlands, the Royal Concert Hall, Briggait, City Halls, Old Fruitmarket and the Tron Theatre. Further afield venues such as the SSE Hydro, SECC, Emirates Arena, Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and Hampden Park can all be reached by bus or local rail service within 25 minutes.

For those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city it’s a five minute walk to the banks of the Clyde and the wide open spaces of Glasgow Green are only a kilometre away. The Green’s 55 hectares of space includes the People’s Palace, Winter Gardens and two large children’s play parks. And of course Edinburgh is less than an hour away by train.

About Rowan

I am a married mum of two, qualified as a Chartered Accountant. In my spare time I enjoy curling and touch rugby and have been fortunate enough to represent Scotland at the latter. My favourite travel destination is Australia where I spent a gap year in my younger days.

Rowan purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Rowan chose Glasgow

My husband and I are graduates of the nearby University of Strathclyde and both have fond memories of our student days in Glasgow. We regularly use the apartment ourselves and chose it due to its location within a short walk of the train stations, making it a perfect weekend getaway for our family. We wanted somewhere in the heart of things but also suitable to use with our children. Glasgow is very much a city which always has something happening, hosting important venues such as the SSE Hydro, Emirates Arena, Sir Chris Hoy velodrome, SECC and Hampden Park.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location! It really is perfectly located for all that Glasgow has to offer. The apartment is within walking distance of the two main line train stations and the bus station. Along with nearby Argyle train station and St Enoch and Buchanan subways stops these provide easy access to all other areas of Glasgow including the main event venues. The Merchant City is the buzzing, vibrant heart of this cosmopolitan city with everything you need is on your doorstep. For a break from the hustle and bustle of the city the wide expanses of Glasgow Green are a walkable 1km away. We bought the flat just before the Commonwealth Games and during 2015 have extensively refurbished it to a high standard, fitting a new kitchen and en-suite shower room and redecorating throughout.

lovely

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this beautifully renovated apartment. Well stocked. Great location. Beautiful courtyard. Since the location is right where the action is, it was a bit noisy at times but tolerable. Owner is great to work with and is wonderful at communicating. I'd definitely recommend staying here. We walked from the Queen St. train stop with all of our luggage. It was great!

Our favorite flat

  • 5 of 5

Traveled through Scotland and Ireland for 2 weeks. Rowan's flat was our favorite flat that we stayed in the entire trip. Recently remodeled, and beautifully done. Perfect location. Highly recommend staying here.

Spacious apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is huge and in a perfect location. We could walk just about everywhere, and everything we needed, including several grocery stores, is just down the street. The kitchen is fantastic, and cooking was a joy. The washer/dryer worked great as well. The internet service is unusably slow and frustrating (being a mobile broadband connection with a wireless router), so I hope that a proper internet connection will be installed soon that is actually high-speed. Rowan’s instructions and communication are terrific and made our stay easy. We had a plumbing problem, and she was quick to get it addressed. This apartment is in the middle of a large city, so of course, there is noise outside. It awoke us once on a weekend night during our six-day stay, but we soon fell asleep again. We would stay here again if visiting Glasgow.

AMAZING location!! Close to everything and nice and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days here and loved the location of this flat! Close to everything. Stocked with everything we needed! Nice, spacious and modern. A wee bit loud in the late evenings but we already knew that from other reviews and nothing a set of ear plugs didn’t fix! Would rent again next time for sure.
