Elegant C Listed villa with beautiful views.
Ellanbank is an elegant, mid Victorian former manse dating from 1874 and is Category C Listed. The villa was designed by John Honeyman who is chiefly known for his domestic and ecclesiastical work including the restoration of Iona and Brechin cathedrals. Along with his partner, John Keppie, he was employer and master to Charles Rennie Mackintosh and was the president of the Glasgow Institute of Architects in 1881/1882.
Ellanbank was designed to take full advantage of the beautiful elevated positon with panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde over to the Isle of Bute and beyond.
The accommodation on the ground floor begins with an entrance vestibule which leads into a grand reception hallway with ornate plasterwork and stained glass windows and stone mullions. The drawing room has a marble fireplace at focal point with beautiful open aspects. Additional reception rooms include a formal dining room again with an intricately decorated ceiling, sitting room, study, modern fitted kitchen with a fine range of base and wall mounted units with doors leading to the conservatory which was built by Cairn Conservatories. Additional accommodation on the ground floor includes a butler's pantry and cloakroom/WC. The first floor accommodation comprises five well proportioned double bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room.
The grounds surrounding Ellanbank extend to approximately half an acre with the driveway sweeping towards the house and parking space for a number of cars and access to the garage. There is a well stocked border with a wide range of mature trees and shrubs and to the front of the house there is a level lawn which was formerly a croquet lawn. Outbuildings include a tool shed, greenhouse, workshop and garage.
