Property Description

Full Details

This is a beautiful detached Victorian Villa constructed in 1870. It is C-listed and set within 1.3 acres of immaculately tended gardens, which contain several specimen trees and other rare botanical plants which have been acquired over the last 150 years. The house is set on a natural rise above the River Clyde and the gardens flow down to the river bank with a series of intricately designed terraces to allow for a gentle stroll within the garden area and a lawn tennis court to the right of the driveway. Located in the small hamlet of Garrion Bridge within the Clyde Valley, the house and its surrounds have a sleepy, dreamlike quality yet are only 25 minutes commute time from Glasgow along the M74 with the nearby A72 slip road giving access within a five-minute drive from the motorway. Included in the sale is an impressive separate dwelling, under separate title, previously used as a coach house and stable block, constructed in 1890. This is a substantial building which also comes with an additional c. 0.7 acres of gardens and driveway and subject to the requisite planning permissions, could be developed for a range of additional uses. Planning permission was granted some years ago for its conversion to a residential dwelling and this could doubtless be revisited.   

The house itself is approached via electric gates to a wide sweeping driveway. To the left is the approach to the Stables block and to the right is the driveway to the house itself.

Entry to the house is through a turreted vestibule complete with original mosaic tiled floor which continues into the impressive double height main hallway. From the hallway is an original turned stairway in natural oak, complete with split half landing offering access to all apartments in the upper levels. On the ground floor to the left of the vestibule is an exquisite drawing room with wooden floor, fireplace and beautiful ceiling light. To the right of the vestibule is the sitting room with open outlook through a bay window to the gardens beyond and complete with detailed cornicing and open fireplace. The kitchen to the rear of the ground floor has custom built units, contrasting granite worktop, and a range of high-quality integrated appliances. From the kitchen, a door leads through to the rear hall with the dining room, boot room/cloakroom and laundry room, greenhouse and conservatory beyond. The dining room has an intimate feel with lowered ceiling height, both the boot room and laundry room are of good size, as is the greenhouse beyond. The conservatory to the rear is finished in wood with double glazed units and provides a perfect vista to the gardens beyond. Access to the gardens from the conservatory and rear hall. Finally, on the ground floor is a wet room, finished in travertine, with large walk-in shower, accessed directly from the main hall, and facing the front of the property.

Upstairs from the turned staircase with original balustrade there are two further levels. On the mid-level, there is a dressing room, bedroom and bathroom, and on the first-floor level there are a further three bedrooms and second bathroom. The quality of the sanitaryware finishes in both bathrooms is exquisite – the mid-level bathroom is equipped with a three- piece suite with natural stone bath against a wonderful stained-glass backdrop on two sides, whilst the first-floor level bathroom is finished in travertine with similar quality three-piece suite complete with jacuzzi bath. All four bedrooms are large-sized doubles, all decorated in designer wallcoverings, and the dressing room on the mid-level is dressed with a bespoke natural wood furniture.                          

All main living apartments have intact original cornicing details of the highest quality.

Externally, the garden grounds are substantial, and include a lawned tennis court, rare plant and tree specimens (including a Giant Redwood tree) , several terraces that break the slope down to the River below, a natural stone built barbecue/sitting area and four outbuildings, including a substantial log-cabin nestled mid-way down the garden towards the River. This building is sizeable and comes complete with quality internal finishings, a surrounding wooden deck area, and electrical power. There are four further additional outbuildings nearer to the house, all with power and, currently used to house motor vehicles, garden tools and for storage.   

The stable block, constructed in sandstone, has its own driveway approach (accessed by turning immediately left upon entering through the main gates), its own garden grounds, and has a ground floor area measuring approximately six metres deep by seven metres wide and is partitioned down the middle. A staircase rises to a first- floor gallery and there is an attractive turret in the southeast corner of the building. Within the title there are approximately 0.7 acres of garden and driveway.    

There are four further additional outbuildings nearer to the house, all with power, currently used to house motor vehicles, garden tools and for storage.    

Millfield House is very accessible and within comfortable commuting distance of Glasgow city centre. It can be reached in 25 minutes from Glasgow City along the M8/M73/M74 network. From exiting the Motorway network, the house is less than a five-minute drive. Local Rail connections are at Carluke and Wishaw stations with a fast London connection available at Motherwell station. Edinburgh airport is around 33 miles away and Glasgow Airport is around 25 miles away. The nearest retail centre is to be found in Hamilton which offers a high-quality range of shopping, restaurants and other leisure activities.
