Oakley Terrace is without question one of Glasgow’s undiscovered treasures and was commissioned by Alexander Dennistoun circa 1863 and designed by the renowned architect James Salmon.

Such has been the level of refurbishment the privileged new owner will be securing a 'new build' home within the fabric of a magnificent traditional sandstone building. The true success lies within our client’s determination to restore and reinstate an array of period style features and successfully blending them with a range of quality fixtures and fittings
