Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold property with Rettie & Co

A quite magnificent, entire detached Edwardian Villa by Fryers and Penman, built circa 1903 in Scottish revival style and incorporating Scots Baronial and 17th century renaissance details.

This stunning and extremely grand, traditional red sandstone detached house is incredibly unique – not just because it is one of a small number of detached houses remaining in the West End but because it retains an extraordinary amount of its original features. It has an absolutely wonderful, almost unaltered Edwardian interior and the countless original, Art Nouveau features include spectacular stained/leaded glass, an amazing double return timber staircase with balusters, numerous fireplaces, and an exquisite ground floor drawing room with substantial double doors which link through to the amazing formal dining room.

The present owners of this property have taken great pride in its history and have significantly enhanced its extraordinary traditional charm and character.

The house is laid out over two main floors and there is a further staircase from the first-floor landing which leads to the original billiard room on the second floor (with full size table). The accommodation extends to nine/ten main apartments and is circa five hundred square meters.

4 Whittingehame Gardens is a really special property and represents a unique opportunity to purchase one of the best houses in the area.

The house is elegantly elevated from Great Western Road and is extremely private due to the screening from mature trees and planting.

Garden Grounds:

The garden grounds are also special and are south facing at the rear. To the front, the sweeping private driveway gives extensive parking. The rear garden has lawn, hedging and planted beds and there is also a landscaped side garden/terraced area.

There is also a substantial, sandstone garage with pitched roof, double doors, and gardeners WC.
