Lismore House in North Kelvinside, Glasgow, was built around 1860 for a German Consul, Johan Keif, by his wife, as part of their wedding dowry. The property, which looks like a miniature castle, is described as an “Italianate villa” but boasts four bedrooms, a cloakroom/WC, bathroom and a separate shower room.
It’s set in well-kept gardens with mature trees and beautiful southerly aspects to the River Kelvin, which runs through Glasgow. Inside, there’s a spectacular hallway with a fairytale staircase that leads up to the tower room, which boasts six windows with views all around the locale.
There’s also a recently upgraded three-bedroom self-contained apartment at garden level, perfect for a separate family flat or rental.
There are period features at every turn throughout the home including oak panelled walls, stained glass windows, original herringbone flooring, marble fireplaces.
It’s now on the market for £1.1million, Glasgow Live reports.
The Rightmove advert says the detached property is “undoubtedly one of the finest houses in the West End of Glasgow”.
It’s marketed by Rettie & Co, which has several office including one around 10 minutes’ drive away in the Dowanhill area of the city.
