About this property

  • Redholm is a traditional detached family home sitting in the middle of beautiful substantial gardens. The property dates from 1901 and is constructed of red sandstone under a pitched slate roof. Internally the property adopts a very natural and convenient flow from the central hallway. The drawing room and dining room sit to the front of the house with the former having a bay window typical of the period bringing in an abundance of light; decorative cornicing and a central ceiling rose also feature. The dining room has a deep bay which forms part of the turret, and this room also benefits from a fireplace with gas fire and marble surround. The dining kitchen is well appointed with a Rangemaster cooker with an additional ceramic hob, integrated fridge and freezer and ample space for a dining table. The ground floor also has one room adopted as a guest bedroom.

    The first floor is made up of four bedrooms with an additional home office. The principal bedroom is a generous size and benefits from lovely views over the gardens and across to the Firth of Clyde and up to Gare Loch beyond. The family bathroom, which is also accessed directly via the fifth bedroom, is fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware.

    The property extends to 3750 sq ft in total and carries a wonderful charm and character with stain glass windows above the front door, in the cloakroom and also at half landing. that ultimately leaves Redholm standing as one of the finest family homes in the area, with both grandeur, comfort and the required space for modern family living.

    Grounds and Gardens

    As striking as the building itself is, the grounds around Redholm are every bit as impressive. The driveway leads to a sweeping courtyard to the font and side of the property, whilst sitting directly in front of the house is an expanse of lawn bordered by some wonderfully colourful planting, including rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas and a wisteria that climbs the side of the entrance, as well as magnolia, peony and honeysuckle. To the rear of the property there is a mature orchard with fruit trees and bushes.
