About this property

  • 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.

Local information

  • Cairn O' Mount is set in one of the finest positions within the garden suburb of West Pollokshields.
  • Pollokshields has evolved over the last 150 years as one of the finest locales in the city of Glasgow. Its development was promoted by the original landowners, the Maxwells of Nether Pollok, who had been resident in Pollok House since the 18th century. Their association with the area goes back to 1270 and their earliest extant residence, Haggs Castle, dates from 1585.
  • By 1849 Sir John Maxwell, 8th Baronet of Nether Pollok, had realised the potential of this green and fertile area on the outskirts of the city of Glasgow, and his successors supervised its transformation into the first planned garden suburb in Great Britain, considerably predating the English Garden City movement and the celebrated examples of Letchworth (1903) and Welwyn Garden City (1919). With wide roads and controlled streetscapes, residential building was carefully monitored and the western area was exclusively developed for villas. The architectural styles in West Pollokshields range from Classical to Italianate, Glasgow style to Gothic and from Scots Baronial to Old English. Many of the prominent architects of the late Victorian period are represented, Alexander “Greek” Thomson, H E Clifford, W F McGibbon, H & D Barclay, James Miller and Rowand Anderson amongst them. Many façades conceal interiors richly adorned by the finest craftsmen, some of international renown.
  • “The Avenues” have been described as among the finest residential locations in the west of Scotland and Cairn O' Mount, with its elevated corner position, arguably occupies the premier position within the West Pollokshields conservation area.
  • Sherbrooke Avenue is conveniently positioned within half a mile of Glasgow's finest park, Pollok Country Park (European Best Park of the Year 2008). Pollok Country Park is internationally famous and includes the renowned Burrell Collection, Pollok House, rhododendron walks, numerous sporting facilities and Haggs Castle Golf Course.
  • West Pollokshields provides highly reputable primary and secondary schooling, with private schooling available locally at Hutchesons' Grammar School. Additional pick up points are available for Glasgow Academy, Kelvinside Academy, High School of Glasgow, Belmont House and St Aloysius College.
  • Pollokshields also provides additional notable attractions including Maxwell Park with its lovingly tended wildlife pond, Bellahouston Park, which includes a ski centre, the House for An Art Lover which was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Haggs Castle Golf Course, Clydesdale Cricket Club and Titwood Tennis Club. Dumbreck railway station is under a mile away with regular services to Glasgow Central station. Maxwell Park railway station also provides regular services to Glasgow Central with a journey time of approximately 7 minutes. The nearby M77 also provides swift commuter links to the city centre and south to Ayrshire.
