5 Cleveden Road is steeped in history. This stunning former home of Thomas Russell, successful businessman and politician who was a partner in the famous Saracen Foundry in Possil Pearl, has been extremely well looked after over the last 140 plus years.

In 1947 the Salvation Army took it over and turned it into a maternity home. It was used for expectant mothers, who were then transferred to 1014 Great Western Road to have the babies, then brought back to Cleveden House for aftercare until they were ready to leave. By 1972 the home was being run as the Fraser of Allander Maternity Home. It has now, as usually happens with these magnificent houses, been converted into stunning residential apartments.
