A beautiful Edwardian mansion designed by renowned Glasgow architect William Lieper has come onto the market for offers over £1.5m.

The arts and crafts style house sits on three acres of land, and is within walking distance of the heart of Bridge of Allan and Stirling University.

With their leaded windows, timber beams and intricate fireplaces, arts and crafts houses such as this one look like they would belong in a fairytale kingdom – but arts and crafts houses are a distinctive part of Scotland’s architectural landscape thanks to architects like Charles Rennie Mackintosh and William Leiper.

They are rare 19th-century properties with romantic decorations borrowed from medieval and folk traditions, and William Morris’s idea to “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” was taken into the heart of William Leiper.

Leiper, whose designs include the Templeton Carpet Factory at Glasgow Green, Partick Burgh Hall, Dowanhill Church and the Banqueting Hall of Glasgow City Chambers, was one of Scotland’s finest architects in the late 19th century.
