A contemporary house in an expensive green historic mansion
Step into this luxury four-bedroom apartment in the iconic Blairtum House in Burnside and you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported to the pages of a glossy interior magazine.
This first floor property really has it all. There is space, luxury and sophisticated style.
But even more appealing is the possibility of living in a magnificent historic building, set in 1.55 acres of private gardens with views on a clear day of the Campsies.

Close to the big city, the expansive driveway behind the gates of Blairtum Park leads to a secret green haven that’s a playground for wildlife.
From the apartment located in the carefully restored and converted C-listed Blairtum House – which was built as a rectory in 1878 – there are breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views.
The building’s proud history seems to mesh comfortably with the contemporary, relaxed appeal of the interior, with large windows, diffused natural light, high ceilings, and underfloor heating.
Entrance to Blairtum House is through the secure entrance gate of the historic end turret. The apartment’s large hallway gives easy access to all rooms, including a large storage cupboard.
The generously proportioned kitchen is at the heart of the house, where its current owners meet with friends to cook and entertain.
The exquisite Porcelanosa kitchen features a mix of wood effect and matt gray cabinets, perfectly complemented by a white Krion worktop.
Built-in appliances and a substantial island with storage and seating for four add to the appeal of this kitchen.
This spacious room also offers space for a dining table and dual aspect windows with views of the surroundings.
Benefiting from a large amount of space and natural light from the dual aspect corner windows, the living room is perfect for relaxing or entertaining and has enough space for living room furniture and can also accommodate a dinner table.
The four bedrooms are generous double rooms.
The master bedroom with fitted wardrobes also has a contemporary partially tiled bathroom with two sinks and a walk-in shower.
The second double bedroom is tastefully decorated in neutral tones.
The third bedroom is currently used as a fitness area and the current owners have transformed the fourth bedroom into a spacious and functional home office.
The luxurious, partially tiled bathroom has a large soaking tub and separate walk-in shower with rainfall showerhead.
Burnside is a bustling community with local cafes, shops and a small Tesco supermarket. There are also local parks and walks on the doorstep.
In the large private communal garden, each house of Blairtum House has its own space dedicated to garden furniture.
On-site parking for owners and visitors can be found at the end of the private driveway to the building.
Upload Abode is looking for offers over £ 390,000 for this magnificent property.
