Sale of Linnburn in 1859



To be sold, by public roup, within the Faculty Hall, Saint George’s Place, Glasgow, on Wednesday the 20th day of April, 1859, at one o’clock afternoon (if not previously sold by private bargain).

The villa of Linnburn, near Shandon, in the parish of Row and county of Dumbarton, with offices, garden, and pleasure ground.

The house, which was substantially finished under the inspection of the late proprietor, Samuel McCall Esq, about 20 years ago, is in good repair, and contains parlour, dining room, and library, with kitchen and scullery, on the first floor; and five bedrooms, closet, etc on the second floor; but is capable of extension at little expense. The offices contain a coach house and two-stalled stable. An abundant supply of water is conducted into the house.

The grounds extend to about 7 acres, for which a feu duty of only £38 5s 9d is payable, the remainder of the original feu duty having been redeemed.

The site is elevated, with a southern exposure, commanding the views of the loch and surrounding scenery. A considerable stream passes through the grounds, which are beautifully laid out.

The property has an easy access to and from Glasgow by the Helensburgh Railway and by the omnibus, which passes the gate several times daily.

To insure competition, the upset price has been further reduced to £1800.

The furniture in the house could be had at a valuation, and early entry given.

For further particulars, apply to Moncrieff, Paterson, Forbes & Barr, Writers, 45 West George Street, Glasgow.

Muir & Monteith, auctioneers, 29th March, 1859.
