Elegant Listed country house set in manicured gardens


Over Lethame House occupies a magnificent rural location just outside the picturesque and historic town of Strathaven. Strathaven centres around the Common Green and offers a unique range of shops, tea rooms and professional services. The town is popular with commuters yet it retains much of its charm from yesteryear. Both primary and secondary schooling are available within the town and private schooling is available at Hamilton College. Recreational opportunities include golf, walking and fishing. For riders, the immediate area offers some quiet hacking routes. Strathaven has a leisure centre with gym and swimming pool and public tennis courts with a bowling green within George Allan Park. There are numerous sporting clubs including golf, rugby, squash and curling. Strathaven offers easy access to the M74 and the M8 connecting to the main arterial routes for central Scotland.


Over Lethame House is an elegant, Category C listed villa, originally built in the early 19th century with a stunning Edwardian frontage added in 1906. It is set in about 1.2 acres of formal and manicured gardens surrounded by mature trees.

Over the last few years, Over Lethame House has been refurbished to the highest of standards by the current owners. In its restoration, considerable sensitivity and effort was used to combine the original 19th and early 20th century features with modern living requirements to create an exceptional country house. Outstanding features include the bespoke fitted kitchen, the refitted bathroom and shower room, full redecoration and restoration of the original cornicing.

On the ground floor of Over Lethame House an entrance vestibule opens into an elegant reception hallway, off which are a formal dining room, formerly an orangery, with gothic arched windows overlooking the gardens, an exceptionally well-proportioned sitting room, a wc and an inner staircase hall which gives access to the beautiful drawing room. Towards the rear of the house, accessed via the sitting room or from the rear entrance, is a bespoke dining sized fitted kitchen with an excellent range of built-in appliances and a French door to a terrace. Beyond the kitchen are a pantry and a utility room leading to a rear hall with wc off and the back door. Also off the rear hall is a large cinema room which could be used for a wide variety of purposes including an additional bedroom. On the upper floor are a master bedroom with beautiful views over the front garden, three further double bedrooms, a luxury bathroom and a shower room, both recently refitted.

Within the grounds of Over Lethame House is Over Lethame Cottage which has been modernised and currently comprises two principal apartments with fitted kitchen, wc and loft. The cottage has its own driveway.

The grounds are entered through twin gate piers which were salvaged from the historic Ferguslie Mills in Paisley. A Quartz stone chipped driveway leads up to a parking area at the front of the house and continues round to the back door. The immaculately maintained gardens are mainly lawned with terraces, patios, a secret garden and a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees providing excellent privacy and shelter.
