Property description

Balmory is a distinctive, detached Listed villa in the West Pollokshields outstanding Conservation Area and garden suburb.

This beautifully proportioned Arts and Crafts residence is well maintained with original features
of character and quality, set in mature landscaped gardens

Located in the UKs original, largest and best planned garden suburb and within the city's international cultural hub on the south side of the River Clyde. With ready access to Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow city centre, the neighbourhood embraces several parks, cafes and restaurants, sporting facilities and a diverse choice of schools, including the Glasgow School of Sport, a Gaelic medium primary and the highly respected Hutchesons' Grammar School.

Accommodation includes the Drawing Room, Dining Room, Morning Room on the ground floor. The Music Room on the mezzanine. 4 Bedrooms on the first floor together with 2 Bathrooms, one en suite.

The self contained suite of two rooms and wet room is on the ground floor overlooking the rear garden.

The full size attic is floored and there is an exceptionally large basement offering substantial development potential (e.g. For both a cinema and gym/spa suite) besides incorporating the existing wine cellar, library, laundry room and integral garage.

The garden has recently been substantially re-landscaped to include the creation of a sheltered sun terrace.

Designed by W. J Anderson in 1891, this distinctive b-Listed sandstone villa is rooted in Scots Baronial architecture with European influences. Its high structural quality embraces definitively post-Victorian proportions and the individual character of each room; most of its original features are retained, including six parquet floors. It is a spacious yet compact family residence, well maintained and well suited to entertaining.

Built for David Mason, later Lord Provost and Lord Lieutenant of Glasgow, Balmory is unique not only in the Conservation Area of West Pollokshields, but is the only villa designed by the prestigious W.J Anderson, then Director of the Department of Architecture at the Glasgow School of Art.

A house that has rarely changed hands.
