This is an unmissable opportunity to purchase an entire detached family home in Winton Drive. The epitome of elegance, this beautiful mansion house has been meticulously maintained, enhancing and restoring its original period architectural features. The house boasts ornate cornicing, marble chimneypieces, working shutters and pitch pine doors, architraves and floors, and a grand staircase illuminated with original painted glass landing window. The ground floor features free standing embossed working radiators.
The property is a fine example of early, Edwardian architecture and has its own two storey mews and separate garage, all under the original title. The generous family accommodations is spread over three floors, the upper being the original billiard room with stunning views from three sides. The entrance is through a Corinthian pillared portico and inner vestibule with original encaustic floor to parquet floored hall. The home offers a wealth of bright and spacious rooms comprising twelve principal apartments, all of which have the highest standard of finish and decoration.
The villa commands a plot set back from the road with stone wall boundaries and high beech hedge while mature close planting offers an unusually secluded private setting. The quartz horseshoe driveway is almost invisible from Winton Drive, with tree screening from the front and continues South to access the mews and garage. On the other side, a wooded walkway leads to large enclosed rear gardens laid down to lawn with rhododendron and camellia.
The single garage features a pit, a wooden vaulted ceiling, rosemary tiles in the style of a pagoda and up and over door. Garage forecourt has original sets or cobbles from between tramlines in Byres Road.
Thanks to its particular size and proportions, this property would be equally suitable for conversion to appeal to today’s strongest market.
