Kingsborough Gardens nestles within the highly fashionable and select Dowanhill area of Glasgow's West End. Situated to the west side of Byres Road, Kingsborough Gardens is a delightful horseshoe styled crescent formed around beautifully manicured, hedge lined private garden grounds which are in the shared private ownership of all residents of Kingsborough Gardens.Examples of Glasgow's Victorian and Edwardian architectural heritage can be seen throughout the city, although nowhere is it more prevalent than in the West End. Over 100 years ago the burgeoning mercantile classes were attracted to the area's grand terraces, designed by architects such as Alexander - Greek' Thompson, Charles Wilson, John Keppie, David Barclay and Sir John James Burnett. Today this affluent area attracts upwardly mobile professionals and families who can enjoy the ambience of city living at its best.Dowanhill is within the catchment of reputable primary and secondary schools and approximately one mile from both Kelvinside and Glasgow Academies, which are renowned for their academic excellence. The West End is one of the cultural centres of Glasgow and affords a number of defining institutions including the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow University, the Botanic Gardens, Gartnavel Hospital and The Western Infirmary as well as the Kelvinhall Sports Centre and Transport Museum. Byres Road, widely regarded as the hub of the West End, offers a number of trendy bars, fine restaurants and shops and is the focal point of the annual West End Festival.
