La Casa, Park Circus, Park, Glasgow
A magnificent original Mansion House situated on Park Circus close to the city centre and other landmarks and amenities in the vicinity.This unique property was built to the designs of Architect Charles Wilson and interior by James Boucher in the mid 19th Century for Walter MacFarlane, the founder of Saracen Foundry and extends to circa 12,000 sq ft over four floors and constructed of dressed stone under a slate roof. Internally the house retains a wealth of period detail including the striking iconic columns on the ground floor creating a splendid entrance and also a wide marble staircase leading to the main reception rooms on the first floor. One of the most striking features is the elaborate forged metalwork throughout which was commissioned by the original owner, still a main feature of the property today. The ceiling cornice work is of particular note and very fine for this type and age of house. The property lends itself to a wide range of uses such as a private dwelling house, Consulate Embassay, Art Gallery and Library and a number of recreational uses and benefits from some modern amenities including a modern lift system. There is also a generous car park to the rear of the building.
