A £1m restoration of an East End mansion will see the impressive property converted into rental apartments.

Mansion House in Tollcross Park is a Victorian-era property built 174 years ago by architect David Bryce for the mine-owning Dunlop family.

The A-listed property is surrounded by 80 acres of parkland and features classic crow-stepped gables, corbelled turrets, and pointed roofs.

The detailed renovation by Spectrum Properties will see the building converted into 13 apartments that will retain the characteristics and craftsmanship of the Victorian mansion.

The stately rental apartments will be on the market by November this year, some of which are a palatial size, and some will have floor-to-ceiling shuttered windows.

The new homes will have ultra-fast broadband and will be served by a private road through the park.

Bill Roddie, managing director of Spectrum Properties, said: “This magnificent building is of massive historical importance to the East End - it is part of its heritage - and the work carried out had to be commensurate with its grandeur.

“The highly skilled team has, in effect, been paying its respects to the building while refurbishing windows and doors, replacing sills and seals, rewiring, installing energy efficiency measures, bringing the roof up to scratch and repointing the entire building.

“The tenants of the new flats will have the whole park on their doorstep, but importantly they will also have a private garden to the back and the side of the building and a barbecue area for summer nights.”
