No back-to-school blues at New Steiner luxury development in Finnieston

New Steiner Courtyard

A NEW high-end collection of properties in one of Scotland’s most sought-after neighbourhoods has just launched and in the first weekend already 25% of the properties are now sold with buyers able to move in this month.

At the launch 9 homes sold at New Steiner – a new build with a difference in the heart of Finnieston.

The restored and reimagined B-listed former Steiner School on Yorkhill Street is now home to an exceptional development of 36 properties, including 2-bed apartments, garden duplexes, and an exclusive penthouse collection. Buyers do not need to imagine the finished product or buy off-plan as the homes are available now and move-in ready.

New Steiner offers West End living at its best with a truly luxurious specification throughout each home and a prime location within walking distance of the bustling shopping and dining scene at its sought-after Finnieston location.

The development has been created to give homeowners a connection to nature while living in the city, with a hidden courtyard garden and external breezeways helping to bring the outside in. The project also preserves one of Glasgow’s most significant heritage sites, a towering Victorian building which served as the independent Glasgow Steiner School for nearly three decades and has lain empty since 2013.

The infrastructure of the former school building has been retained and reinstated wherever possible, with specialist craftspeople employed to carefully restore the stonework, including external detailing such as the original moulded stone school motive and a sculpted Glasgow coat of arms.

The interiors have a considered and opulent finish with leading luxury kitchen architecture brand Poggenpohl, Siemens appliances and sinks and taps by The 1810 Company. Bathrooms designed by leading London brand West One Bathrooms include stone composite sinks, feature glass shower enclosures and Hansgrohe Croma raindance showers with matt black and chrome finishes.

A collection of 14 garden duplexes are housed within the restored school building, each accessed from a hidden courtyard garden. Extravagant ceiling heights, period windows and external breezeways give each home a sense of space and tranquillity.

Meanwhile, the stylish apartments and penthouse collection are within an adjacent contemporary new building. The 20 two-bedroom luxury apartments feature full-height windows, balconies or Juliet balconies and lift access to all levels.

The two penthouses are the jewel in the crown of the new build development and enjoy wraparound terraces and breathtaking city views. Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors let the light flood in, framing the luxury open-plan kitchen and living areas. The penthouses also benefit from private lift access and walk-in wardrobes.

Simon Mullen, managing director at Steiner Property Ltd, said: “It is incredibly rewarding to bring this great Glasgow building back to life as New Steiner.

“Glasgow is my home town, and while I’ve worked in the property industry for many years, this is my first residential development of this scale. It has been a labour of love, and we have taken great care to ensure New Steiner has everything our buyers would expect. Not only have we partnered with designer kitchen and bathroom brands, but we’ve also taken a considered approach with the design to pay homage to what’s gone before while looking to the future, such as incorporating biophilic design elements with our courtyard garden to help bring nature into the built environment.

“Each of the properties has been finished at an extremely high specification, and not only are they in move-in condition, but they are also available now. We don’t expect them to be available for long!”

The New Steiner development is priced from £299,995 and available to view by appointment. To arrange a viewing or find out more visit
