CLOSING DATE WEDNESDAY 5TH MAY AT 11:00AM Lismore House at 115 Kelvin Drive is undoubtedly one of the finest houses in the West End of Glasgow and indeed one of the most individual. It is perched high above the River Kelvin and sits directly on the boundary of The Botanic Gardens. Fully detached and with absolutely stunning gardens, a side drive and a detached garage, this magnificent house was built circa 1860 for a German Consul, Johan Keif by his wife, as part of their wedding dowry. The main accommodation includes three reception rooms, four bedrooms, a cloakroom/WC, bathroom and a separate shower room. In addition, there is a recently upgraded three-bedroom self-contained flat at garden level. The garden level has always been linked to the main house via a staircase at the end of the reception hall but also has a totally private entrance to the side so is perfect for a separate family flat or rental. The entrance hallway is spectacular and is entered through a curved oak arch and the drawing room has a stunning bow window with beautiful views to the garden. The tower room is one the most extraordinary features of the house and is accessed from the first floor landing via a charming staircase which leads to the tower itself which has six windows, all with dramatic views. Gardens The garden is one of just may things that make this house so special. The main garden is to the side with an elegant triangle shaped lawn surrounded by paths, beds, hedging and mature trees and there are beautiful southerly aspects to the River Kelvin and The Botanics. Accommodation: Main House • Ornate entrance vestibule via detailed oak door with inset, oval shaped stained glass screen. Oak panelling and mosaic floor • Wonderful welcoming hall lit by the leaded/stained glass windows in the vestibule and on the half landing • Incredible main lounge with five section bow window to the side and an additional window to the rear (south).
