Description

Discover this exquisite little gem – a classically inspired villa just a few miles from the centre of Glasgow. Completed in 1858, Holmwood is considered to be the finest domestic design by the architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. Inside this richly ornamented house there are exciting developments taking place. Come and watch the progress of our conservation experts as they reveal original stencilled wall decoration in the dining room, and discover more from the exhibition and audio tour. Appropriately, Holmwood is the base for the Alexander Thomson Society and there’s an information and study centre dedicated to his work. There are 5 acres of landscaped grounds to explore and a small kitchen garden, planted with a range of Victorian herbs, fruit and vegetables.
