All About This Apartment

Flat 12, Highmount House is an apartment with history. The building which features a green heritage plaque was once the offices of Thomas Mawson, landscape architect. It dates back to 1774. Today it is home to just 12 luxury apartments.

From the beautiful, spacious and welcoming hallway, you can't help but feel Highmount House is special. The georgian features of this once large individual building are still evident with the ornate cornicing, beautiful arched window and high ceilings. The wide staircase still carries an air of grandness as you head up to this spacious top floor apartment.

The apartment itself is full of original character with its beautiful beamed ceilings and georgian sash window. It runs the full width of the building. In fact there are only two apartments which occupy the top floor.

The lounge is spacious. The kitchen has the space to dine. The oversized master bedroom is luxurious. With modern fittings and a private parking space, this fabulous apartment is bound to entice. This is your chance to own a city centre apartment with character, a very rare find in the heart of the city.

The open plan living room with its featured beamed ceiling, is the crowning glory of this immaculate apartment. There is space to relax and have friends over. It's so light and bright. Peer out of the georgian sash windows and you have views over the rooftops towards Morecambe Bay. The decor is soft and simple in pale cream shades.

The kitchen diner is suprisingly spacious. Not many 1 bed apartments have the kitchen space this does and the ability to dine. We love how it is separate from the main living room. Your living room is purely space to relax!
