It's been around for almost 50 years, but little has changed with this John Boys-designed midcentury Mornish house in Strathblane, Glasgow. The fixtures and fittings don't look to have changed, that's for sure – it's a retro lover's dream inside.

The house, in a ‘secluded location’ and on the ‘highly sought after’ road, was designed by Glasgow architect John Boys of Lothian Barclay Jarvis, who apparently spent time on a study tour in Scandinavia in his formative years. This house is certainly evidence of that trip.


Described as a ‘ranch style bungalow’, complete with a ‘Butterfly’ roof, the house offers four bedrooms, two public rooms and a kitchen arranged around a central open space. There’s also a double garage with its own driveway outside, plus space to extend. Other features of note include an open plan sitting/dining room with floor to ceiling windows, exposed wooden beams, feature stone walls plus Caithness stone and wood floors.

If midcentury living near Glasgow appeals, offers over £455,000 are invited.
