Built in 1901 for a Glasgow Ship Chandler this Edwardian House is very deceptive from the outside. You can see the influence of the Arts and craft movement on the cornice and the banister in the hall. The high ceiling and bay window in the dining room gives a light and airy feel, while the open fire in the lounge in winter is cosy.
Cressington accommodation comprises three bedrooms with en-suite facilities. This is a central base for touring, business or visiting friends or relations. The Stirling area has a lot to offer ......
