This stunning B-listed Victorian mansion needs to be seen to be believed

Whitecraigs House is a ‘magnificent’ B Listed family home just to the south of Glasgow, nestled in a ‘wonderfully secluded position’ amongst mature grounds approaching 2.3 acres in all - it was listed this month for offers over £2,000,000.

Built in 1898, the property displays all the features of the Arts and Crafts era including decorative cornicing; intricate wood panelling (especially prominent in the reception hall, dining room and the first floor billiards room); a number of impressive open fireplaces, and beautifully crafted leaded windows.

The reception hall is a spectacular two storey open space with an incredible stained glass window; the original chimney piece and an arcaded gallery, which is carved with some striking Mannerist detail. The ‘sensitively chosen’ decor ensures maximum levels of natural light remain prevalent throughout the house.

The property is constructed over three floors, with the “working parts” of the house contained within a spacious basement to include laundry, drying room and the plant room. The ground floor sees the grand reception hall, off which lie the traditional drawing room, dining room and a well-appointed kitchen with further dining area and an adjoining butler’s pantry.The kitchen is formed with wooden units underneath a Corian work-surface with a number of fitted wall cabinets providing ample storage. A four door gas fired AGA in Racing Green takes centre stage providing warmth and character.

Situated on the first floor are the four principal bedrooms, two of which are en suite, with the principal bedroom and main guest bed-room both benefitting from built in wardrobes.

The upper level consists of two spacious attics with ample scope for redevelopment into more usable residential space, subject to acquiring the necessary consents.The property is constructed of stone under a slate roof. Completely distinctive in style and of architectural note.

Whitecraigs House has a real sense of grandeur and is truly one of the ‘finest family homes in the Greater Glasgow area’. While the interior is hugely impressive with its rich array of original features, the gardens are also outstanding with a series of mature trees offering privacy and tranquility, and the expansive paved terraces are perfect for outdoor entertaining and al fresco dining.
