Scottish Property Centre are delighted to present to the market this prestigious, distinctive, mansion house of some historical importance. Garrion Tower is a unique property set within the tranquil countryside with an elevated aspect overlooking the River Clyde. Comprising 3 acres (approx) of private grounds and encompassing a former Tennis Court, Bowling Green and Summer House. All within a wonderful, private and secluded location and yet only a few minutes from the motorway network with excellent travel links throughout Scotland.
Dating back to the 1600's, this fine grade 'B' listed property is situated at the gateway to the Clyde Valley amongst impressive mature woodland and adjacent to a picturesque part of the River Clyde. Approached by a tall tree-lined quarter mile (approx) gated driveway, Garrion Tower has excellent privacy whilst enjoying stunning views over the river and the Clyde Valley. "Originally the pre-Reformation summer residence of the Bishops of Glasgow and Galloway. The original seventeenth century tower house to the far left was much expanded over two phases in the late nineteenth century to treble its original size." (Historic Scotland)
The mansion house comprises eleven bedrooms and six public rooms with bathroom facilities on three of the four floors. Most rooms are of impressive proportions with many original features including finely detailed ornate cornicing and fireplaces that are quite exceptional. Of particular note are; the exquisite hand crafted wood panelled library, imposing entrance hall and sweeping stair, impressive drawing room, vaulted wine cellar and original cast iron bathroom furniture. The southern attic room is also noteworthy as it houses a full sized billiard room and snug.
The property has recently undergone significant repair and the home report confirms it is fit for mortgage purposes. To achieve the high standard befitting this unique property further work will be required by a discerning purchaser with flair and vision. Given the prestige, heritage and location there is potential to add a great deal of value, especially if done to a high standard. It may be a cliché but it is especially true in this instance that photographs just do not do justice to this property. You have to see it to appreciate it to the full.
