Constructed circa 1910 on behalf of John Anderson, Beneffrey Hall is a significant Edwardian villa situated at the head of Springkell Avenue within extensive private established grounds. Designed by William Hunter McNab, the building is finished in dressed stone under a steep pitched and slated roof within a Franco Scottish style. It was used for many years as Strathclyde University's Halls of Residence prior to conversion into three substantial townhouse styled conversions.
The West wing offers versatile accommodation over three levels within seven principal apartments. Corum are of the opinion that early internal inspection is imperative to appreciate the extent, standard and flexibility of accommodation offered at this asking price and to avoid disappointment.
Complete accommodation extends to entrance vestibule via storm doors, lower hallway with cloakroom/wc, bar room and dedicated utility room, formal lounge, dining/living room with focal point neuk fireplace, large living/dining kitchen with direct access to private garden grounds. At first floor, significant master bedroom with split level en suite bathroom, bedroom two with wc adjacent, bedroom three and main bathroom. A further original stair leads to second floor revealing bedroom four, walk in wardrobe, eaves storage space, further bathroom and useful sky parlour/attic space. This area lends itself to a highly flexible apartment suited to working from home/cinema room or teenager den with single leaf access door to West facing balcony/parapet.
Specification includes gas central heating, period quarter pane windows, shared use of a basement/utility area/storage and shared use of a detached coach house with wc and washing facilities.
The property affords extensive private West facing gardens, mostly laid as lawn, with mature hedging and bushes aiding seclusion and privacy.
