Elegant detached Victorian villa in a prestigious locale.
Pollokshields has evolved over the last 150 years as one of the finest suburbs 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. Association with the area goes back to 1270 and their earliest extant residence, Haggs Castle, dates from 1585.
Leslie Road is conveniently positioned within half a mile of one of Glasgow's finest parks: Pollok Park is internationally famous and includes the renowned Burrell Collection, Pollok House, rhododendron walks, numerous sporting facilities and Haggs Castle Golf Course.
Pollokshields provides local state primary and secondary schooling with private education available nearby and throughout Glasgow.
The immediate area also provides additional notable attractions including Maxwell Park with its lovingly tended wildlife pond, Bellahouston Park, which includes a ski centre, the House for the Art Lover which was designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh, Haggs Castle Golf Course, Clydesdale Cricket Club and Titwood Tennis Club. Maxwell Park railway station provides regular travel to Glasgow Central station within approximately 7 minutes. The nearby M77 also provides high speed commuter links to the city centre and Ayrshire.
Harviestoun is a classically styled Victorian blonde sandstone detached villa exhibiting a wealth of distinctive period architectural features yet also incorporating a wide range of high specification contemporary elements. The property offers generously proportioned rooms synonymous with homes of this period, together with high ceilings, original balustrades, ornate ceiling cornicing, centre roses and marble fire surrounds.
The house provides excellent family accommodation on three levels and is set within a prime secluded plot surrounded by immaculate gardens that include a mixture of evergreens and mature trees giving excellent privacy.
The ground floor comprises a large welcoming reception hallway with imposing central staircase and a beautiful tiled floor, three main reception rooms, two with large bay windows looking onto the front garden and the sitting room onto the rear garden. The stunning kitchen has been recently upgraded and boasts a range of integrated high spec appliances, a number of storage options and a central island with integrated hob and breakfast bar.
The first floor has a large landing, five impressive bedrooms most with built in storage and a large family bathroom finished in an Art Deco style, complete with original Vitrolite wall tiles.
The lower ground level is accessed via a staircase off the main reception hall or its own private entrance from the rear garden; as such this could be utilised as a completely separate self contained apartment if desired. At present it consists of a large bedroom, cinema room and playroom, kitchen and shower room.
Externally, benefits include walled grounds with a front garden mainly laid to lawn overlooked by mature trees and hedges, two private driveways secured by wrought iron gates and a large double garage.
