There is also a ground floor annexe with 1 bedroom and bathroom. Very unusually the
house includes a very small but charming chapel which connects into the main house.
Outside, Brownlee House has a number of outbuildings including an Old Smokehouse and single garage. The policies extend to about 9.71 acres in total and are a real feature. This includes formal lawns to the front and rear, yew hedging, walled garden with pond, mature woodland and rough grazing leading down to the river. It includes trout fishing on the River Clyde.
Brownlee House offers a wonderful opportunity to purchase an historic family house, with privacy and wonderful policies yet only 20 miles from Glasgow city centre.

Brownlee House is accessed off the main Maudslie road, via entrance gates and a private tree-lined tarmac driveway leads down and terminates in gravelled terrace to the front with turning circle. The historic house retains many period features. This includes externally the crow stepped gables and the sandstone bay windows for the snug, dining room and bedroom above. Steps lead up to the front door
and into the entrance hall with wooden panelling. Other features include the original wooden panelling, exposed beams and original fireplace within the dining room, the reception rooms with their original hexagonal shaped lead glass windows and the large drawing room with decorative
cornicing and fireplace.

The accommodation is over three storeys as follows:
Ground floor: entrance hall, utility room, pantry, dining room (with open fireplace), study (with open fireplace), boot room with W.C, rear porch, store, dining kitchen, snug (with wood burner), large drawing (with wood burning stove inset into the marble fireplace) and annexe including kitchen,
bedroom, sitting room and entrance hall.
First floor: landing, principal bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom, two further bedrooms and family bathroom.
Second floor: landing three bedrooms and family bathroom.
Adjoining the drawing room is the very charming and small Chapel which has been maintained in its original form. It includes six pews, an alter and original stain glassed windows. The circular window above the doorway is an attractive red rose, which lets in plenty of morning sunshine.
The chapel whilst small is understood to have held a wedding service in 1987.

• Single Garage: Detached with a tiled roof
• Old Smokehouse: Stone built, harled with slate roof
