12 Cathkin Gate, High Burnside, Glasgow, G73 5RW









Truly spectacular detached villa offering commodious accommodation over three levels with panoramic views over Glasgow and beyond.

This highly exclusive development offers a small number of detached residences set within the grounds of Cathkin House which is a significant Category B listed villa built by renowned Edinburgh architect James Ramsay dating back to around 1799.

Cathkin Gate has long proven popular with the discerning buyer given the size of the properties and the elevated position on the edge of Cathkin Braes Country Park which ensures surely some of the very finest views within the city.

This particular villa is the largest within the development and has been thoughtfully designed to maximise the enviable position with a balcony to the front and three wonderful terraces to the rear featuring the aforementioned views and an exceptionally high degree of privacy.

Property Details & Description


The flexible layout is arranged over three levels to offer the maximum square footage possible as follows: broad and welcoming reception hall with storage cupboard, WC, cloakroom and access to the integral garage. The front facing dual aspect lounge features a box bay window formation and multi-fuel burner. To the rear of the property sits a fabulous open plan style kitchen with dining and family areas which features bi-fold doors leading to the first timber decked sun terrace offering excellent outside entertaining space. The solid timber kitchen features granite worktops and breakfasting bar for casual dining, integrated appliances, pantry, with the ground floor completed by the utility room.

The upper level apartments are arranged around a substantial landing area with fitted storage and front facing window. There are four generously sized double bedrooms offering excellent wardrobe space. The principal is especially impressive with further timber sun terrace and en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. The guest bedroom has an additional en-suite with the third bedroom benefitting from the front facing balcony looking out towards Cathkin House with bedroom four enjoying rear facing aspects. A sumptuous family bathroom, again with roll-top bath and shower sits on this level also.

The lower level accommodation includes a fabulous cinema room leading to the final outside terrace area and bedrooms five and six which are currently utilised as home offices with an internal media room housing the controls for the cinema.

The property offers an unrivalled specification with fresh and contemporary decoration on offer including quality carpets and floor coverings including Porcelanosa tiling and oak hardwood finishes and internal doors. The property features double glazing, an integrated sound system and gas central heating with the two lower floors featuring underfloor heating. The sun terraces are worthy of special mention with stylish glass balustrades.

The premier position within the development offers both the finest views and generously sized grounds. Those to the front incorporate an expansive block driveway providing ample off-road parking whilst leading to the double integral garage with two electric remote control doors. The owners have elected to keep the grounds to the rear as a wild garden given the scale of the terraces but buyers could change and landscape if desired.


High Burnside is located to the South East of Glasgow and has a pleasing range of amenities including excellent local shopping and schooling. The area is well served by excellent bus and rail links for the commuter with the adjacent M74 providing speedy commutes to business centres throughout Scotland.
