Outstanding Edwardian villa in one of Glasgow's most desirable areas.
Cairn O' Mount is a classically styled sandstone detached villa built by the notable architect H E Clifford circa 1911. This Category B listed villa is in the English Tudor style and the property was recently retiled with rosemary tiles.
Henry Edward Clifford (1852 1932) was one of Glasgow finest Edwardian architects and built numerous Arts and Crafts style houses in Pollokshields, Langside, Newlands and Troon.
Cairn O' Mount occupies a prime corner positon extending to approximately 0.75 acres of carefully tended landscaped gardens which are mainly lawned to the rear with decking and terrace. The villa was extended with a west wing providing a unique gym and spa area. The accommodation on the ground floor begins with a portico entrance to a vestibule and then into a beautiful grand hallway with sandstone fireplace and open fire. Off the hallway there is a two piece Villeroy and Boch WC/cloakroom suite. The public rooms include an impressive drawing room with open plan music room off with herringbone parquet flooring and fireplace; a formal dining room with wood panelling and fireplace; and a well proportioned sitting room with built in shelving. An inner hallway leads to a study area and an exceptionally spacious open plan fitted kitchen with beautiful west facing sun room off; a home cinema room and laundry room with store. Finally the accommodation on the ground floor includes the west wing with hallway off the reception hall leading to a gym and spa which includes Jacuzzi, steam room and WC with access to doors leading out to the decking area. The first floor accommodation comprises an elegant upper floor landing with hardwood flooring and leaded windows half way up, along with five bedrooms (one with an en suite bathroom and one with an en suite shower room) and is completed by a luxurious family bathroom.
The gardens surrounding Cairn O' Mount provide excellent privacy and there is a twin access driveway to the front with monoblock paving leading to the garage. A wide range of mature trees and shrubs including rhododendrons provide seasonal colour, while the mainly lawned rear garden has a landscaped patio area and decking adjacent to the spa. The Campsie Fells are visible beyond surrounding properties to the rear.
