This significant detached villa enjoys a prime, quiet and accessible position within the select and affluent suburb of Newlands.
Widely recognised as one of Greater Glasgow’s premier residential areas, Newlands is conveniently located within easy reach of Glasgow City Centre and it is largely defined by the caliber of its fine Victorian and Edwardian detached and semi-detached family homes.

sitting area with unparalleled views over Glasgow.
The generous landscaped garden grounds incorporate a traditionally built garage and charming summerhouse. There are two large lawned areas and a useful timber shed.
Glasgow Academy’s preparatory school and new nursery are conveniently located within a quarter of a mile of the property and the area is well served by reputable primary and secondary schools.

Why our client has loved living here:
“Quiet area and detached house . Nice neighbours all round but very private and great garden that used to produce lots of crops. Some good period features and nice big rooms for the three kids we brought up here all of whom have thrived and even learned the bagpipes and trumpet without upsetting us or the neighbours. Not far from bus and train. We have made good long term friends locally. We are going to miss this place.. The hall and staicase will always be remembered. Did I mention the bar?”
