About this property

  • Monreith Road is a stunning example of a red sandstone detached villa built around 1900 which offers accommodation over three levels and is set in one of the most desirable locations in the southside of Glasgow.

    The property offers traditionally proportioned rooms typical of the period, all beautifully decorated, with high ceilings, original balustrades and other carefully preserved features.

    The impressive interior is entered through an entrance vestibule lined with green enamel tiles and then into a generous reception hall with main staircase and stunning original stained glass window. Off here is a closet, beautiful traditional drawing room and dining room with bay window looking onto the front garden; both rooms have fine fireplaces. There is a separate sitting room looking onto the rear garden.

    The open plan kitchen and living area is breathtaking and has large patio doors opening out into the rear garden. The contemporary kitchen is incredibly well appointed with a range of high spec built in appliances, fitted units, boiling water tap, central island with breakfast bar and many other features. The living area has a wood burning stove and ample space for a dining table, making this the true heart of the home.

    The first floor accommodation comprises a family shower room and five generous bedrooms. The principal and two guest bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with Porcelanosa suites.

    The second floor is home to a fantastic billiards room and extensive storage within the eaves of the property.

    The gardens to both the front and rear are mainly lawned with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs providing seasonal colour. The outhouses include three old coal stores, greenhouse and spacious garage providing good storage for a vehicle or belongings with the rear of the garage being utilised as a handy utility room. The horseshoe driveway provides excellent off street parking provision leading to the garage with dual wrought iron gates giving additional privacy and security.

    Monreith Road is a real testament to the current owners' commitment and style, and is one of the finest examples of a family home within the area.
