Marketed for the first time in well over fifty years is this sizeable detached villa set over three levels.

Requiring upgrading, this expansive blonde sandstone villa offers the opportunity to purchase and then create the ideal family home with endless potential given the space and period features. It really is a must for viewing in order to be appreciated.

The house is approached via driveway and mature front, lawned garden onto steps and the entrance vestibule.

The accommodation of the house itself comprises grand reception hallway, bay windowed dining room with dual aspects and access off to an impressive conservatory, bay windowed sitting room with dual aspects, fantastic bay windowed lounge with delightful open aspect to the rear, dining sized kitchen with a range of base and wall mounted units and bathroom with traditional suite and wooden panelling.

Upstairs the accommodation comprises bay windowed bedroom one with that fantastic rear aspect, three more generously proportioned double sized bedrooms, bathroom with three-piece suite and fifth bedroom which could easily be utilised as a home office or study.

The basement level comprises four large rooms along with an original toilet and former coal storage room giving a nod to the sheer age and history of this incredible house.

Internally the property benefits from original sash and casement windows, along with a range of period features including ornate cornice detailing, original floorboards, panelling and tiles.

Pollokshields is one of the most popular areas anywhere in the West of Scotland. The combination of amenities and transport links are second to none. There is a particularly impressive range of restaurants, bars, and cafes in Pollokshields itself as well as nearby Strathbungo and Shawlands. Nearby parks include Pollok Park, Queens Park and Maxwell Park.
