Number 26 Athole Lane is without doubt one of the best Arts & Crafts properties of its kind. It is a B-listed mews cottage built in 1902 as a billiard room and library for John Wylie of Wylie and Lochhead to the rear of his townhouse on Huntly Gardens. Its designer was John Ednie, an admirer of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and when the property was restored and converted into a mews cottage in the late 1970s, it lost none of its exquisite period features, which include, stunning stained/leaded glass windows and door panels, detailed oak woodwork, and an incredible working copper fireplace in the sitting room/former billiard room.
The two-storey accommodation is initially entered off the lane into a common entry that you have a right of access over, leading to your front door. Within here there is an excellent storage cupboard private to you that could be turned into a very handy utility room. There is then a welcoming reception hall, two double bedrooms, master with en-suite shower room, and a recently fitted, fully tiled bathroom with separate shower.
Upstairs is the large sitting room with working open fireplace and double doors open into a new dining kitchen, where in true Mackintosh style, the oak fire surround and mantel is topped by a matching cupboard with ornate stained-glass panels. There is also a dining room that could be used as a study or third bedroom. In addition, the property benefits from gas central heating.
Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the level of accommodation on offer for this extremely rare and exquisite property that offers an incredible wealth of period features.
