The 19th century property overlooks Kelvingrove Park in the West End of Glasgow, one of the city’s most sought-after leisure and residential locations.

The ten bedroom detached property on 46 Gray Street has been run as a successful luxury B&B for the last 15 years, but could be repurposed for residential use with the correct planning consents. The freehold building is offered with vacant possession at an asking price of offer over £1.25 million.


The Alamo garners five star reviews on all the major booking engines, as well as being number one on Tripadvisor for the last 12 years.  Occupying the ground and lower ground floors of a double-fronted late Victorian sandstone building, No.46 has a gross internal area of 4,772 sq ft which is characterised by painstakingly restored and enhanced original features, contemporary décor and exquisite finishes on a grand 19th century scale.




The reception rooms are all bright and spacious with high ceilings and tall windows, dominated by the intricate hand-painted plasterwork.  The ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms (seven en suites) are all individually designed yet form a coherent whole, with all sharing luxurious touches such as sensitively placed lighting, oyster shell basins and freestanding copper bathtubs. Wooden floors and fireplaces add a warm and welcoming feel throughout.




The house is surrounded by a private, moated garden which wraps around the entire front west and south facing aspects.




Steven Fyfe comments:

“This boutique guest house has a well-earned reputation as one of Glasgow’s most stylish and romantic places to stay, with a loyal following and many repeat bookings.  A new owner could certainly capitalise on the glowing reviews and continue to grow the business.”




Given its location, Savills Head of Residential in Scotland, Cameron Ewer, believes there will also be strong residential demand.  He says:

“Well balanced over two floors, with the most elaborate decoration combined with wooden floors and period fireplaces The Alamo could be easily adapted to recreate a superb private home, its original purpose, subject to appropriate consents. Given its coveted prime West End location, with a range of high quality shops, good schools, and abundant green space nearby, it represents a rare and precious find for a residential buyer.”
