Constructed circa 1910 on behalf of John Anderson, Beneffrey Hall is a significant Edwardian villa situated at the head of Springkell Avenue within extensive private established grounds. Designed by William Hunter McNab, the building is finished in dressed stone under a steep pitched and slated roof within a Franco Scottish style. It was used for many years as Strathclyde University’s Halls of Residence prior to conversion into three substantial townhouse styled conversions.
The West wing offers versatile accommodation over three levels within seven principal apartments. Corum are of the opinion that early internal inspection is imperative to appreciate the extent, standard and flexibility of accommodation offered at this asking price and to avoid disappointment.
