Todhill occupies one of the finest and most private positions within this select residential area of Newton Mearns. Set within grounds extending to approximately 5 acres, Todhill is surrounded by extensive, mature gardens which provide excellent screening and privacy.

The affluent suburb of Newton Mearns is characterised by a wide range of individually designed detached family homes and lies approximately 10 miles to the south of the city centre and less than 2 miles from the M77 which provides commuter links to the central belt of Scotland and to Ayrshire. Newton Mearns has a wide range of local golf, tennis and bowling clubs and is within the catchment area for highly reputable primary and secondary schools. The property is less than half a mile from the private Belmont House School and within easy reach of various pick-up points for Glasgow's other private schools which include Hutchesons' Grammar School, Craigholme School for Girls, and Glasgow and Kelvinside Academies. The neighbouring suburbs of Giffnock, Whitecraigs and Clarkston offer a wide selection of shops, fine restaurants, healthcare facilities, Eastwood Theatre, swimming pool, Parklands Country Club and several challenging golf courses including Whitecraigs Golf Course, East Renfrewshire and Eastwood Golf Courses.
Glasgow was designated the European City of Culture in 1990 and offers numerous cultural centres including the newly refurbished Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, a Transport Museum, the Science Centre, the Burrell Collection within Pollok Park, Glasgow Strathclyde and Caledonian Universities. It is widely regarded as one of the leading UK cities for retail space, boasting many shopping complexes including Braehead, Buchanan Galleries, Silverburn and the St Enoch Centre.


Todhill is an elegant, Category B Listed mansion having been designed in part by the architect John Campbell in 1901. The house has a strong Arts and Crafts influence and is two storey with dormered attic gables. The property maintains a wealth of original features including magnificent timber panelling in the main public rooms and grand hallway. The accommodation extends to approximately 7500 sq ft and the ground floor comprises: grand reception hallway, beautiful drawing room with bay window overlooking the gardens, formal dining room, games room, kitchen with stores off and cloakroom / WC. There are additional ground floor domestic rooms including fuel store and wash room. To the south wing of the ground floor there is an annexe with hallway, store, bedroom 1 and sitting room. The first floor accommodation comprises: extensive first floor landing with beautiful timber architraves and surrounds, sitting room with bay window to the front, eight bedrooms and four bathrooms. The second floor accommodation comprises: four loft rooms with bathroom.

The grounds surrounding Todhill are both enchanting and secluded with the carefully tended gardens offering a wealth of shrubs including rhododendrons and azaleas, as well as a range of mature trees including oak, beech, silver birch, and pine. Springtime colour is provided by a mass of daffodils and bluebells. There are wonderful pathways and walkways crisscrossing the grounds of Todhill. (please refer to the enclosed photographs).

To the rear of the property there is a garage with rear courtyard.

Todhill is in need of modernisation.
