About this property

  • Lindores is a stunning example of a red sandstone detached villa built around 1900 which offers accommodation over two levels that extends to approximately 3740sq ft and is set in one of the most desirable locations in the Southside of Glasgow.

    The property offers a fantastic opportunity for the new owners to acquire one of the finest Victorian homes in Newlands allowing them to take advantage of Lindores' traditionally proportioned rooms and attributes which are typical of the period and include high ceilings, cornicing, ceiling roses and other carefully preserved features.

    The impressive interior is accessed via an entrance vestibule and then into a generous reception hall with main staircase leading to the first floor. The hallway benefits from wood paneling installed by a previous owner who was a wood merchant, most notably surrounding the window on the middle landing, there is also a beautiful stone mantelpiece. Off is a outstanding traditional formal lounge with focal fireplace and elaborate ceiling, as well as a bay window looking onto the garden. The dining room has large windows also looking out to the garden, detailed cornicing and plenty of space to entertain. On the opposite side of the hallway the family room leads through to the kitchen, sauna with shower room and separate WC. Finally a well-proportioned bedroom with wooden flooring offers a versatile space that could be utilised in a number of ways. A shower room is located next door, making this an ideal option for guest accommodation.

    The first floor comprises an incredible formal drawing room with parquet flooring, many original features and an elevated outlook to the front of the property. The property has five stunning bedrooms all with generous proportions, allowing space for a home office or extra reception area. The family bathroom with Art Deco vitrolite wall tiles and vintage lemon suite concludes the first floor accommodation.

    Externally, the large 4/5 car garage benefits from an inspection pit and offers plenty of space to be used as a workshop, storage or indeed developed in to ancillary accommodation. The property and garden occupies a large corner plot which benefits from further privacy as a result of Merrylees Plot Holders Association owning the land behind the property. The garden wraps around the house and is mainly laid to lawn with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs providing seasonal colour. The drive in-drive out driveway provides excellent off street parking.
