A family home with grand imagination
A Victorian stone villa stands in its grounds, with a large gravel drive in front and trees to the side.

Holmwood is a family home like no other in Glasgow. Located in the Southside of the city, it’s masterfully designed but surprisingly cosy, and there is grand imagination behind it.

Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson designed the house for paper magnate James Couper and his wife in 1857–8, and it’s widely regarded as this Scottish architect’s finest domestic creation. His stunning design legacy impresses at every turn.

A classically inspired villa set in landscaped grounds, this delightful little gem is a short distance from Glasgow city centre. It offers an exclusive setting for intimate ceremonies, drinks receptions, private parties and gatherings.

Thomson’s penchant for Grecian styling and symmetry is found throughout Holmwood, where the bold opulent decoration echoes the colours seen in ancient Greek temples.
