1883. Probably H and D Barclay. Very long curving terrace of buff sandstone two-and-a-half and three storey and basement houses. Polished ashlar (some houses painted: some linostone). Central and seconds advanced and raised to three full storeys and basement; intervening sections two storeys with mansarded attics and stone pedimented dormers. Plain windows without architraves; continuous consoled balcony with cast iron work broken at central window of regular canted bays with cast iron brattishing. Cornice at first floor to lower sections and to raised ends and centre. Cast iron railings to basement areas and to ground floor flying staircases. Mostly sash and case plate glass windows. Slate roof. Corniced axial and wallhead chimney stacks.

INTERIORS: not seen (except No.31) but apparently with good period details.

INTERIOR, NO.31 CLEVEDEN ROAD: Glasgow Style refurbishment circa 1900, probably by George Walton. 1st floor study with plaster groin vault, padded leather walls with stylised timber framing; leaded glass fitted cabinets; fine chimneypiece redolent with 1st class Glasgow Style detailing, incised work and beaten copper panels. Fine chimneypiece to entrance hall; stylised panelling to stair well. Stained glass to stair and study.

INTERIOR, NO. 33 CLEVEDEN ROAD: Including large decorative stained glass window, possible by Stephen Adam. Detail panels to lower section with allegorical figures representing sculpture and music.

INTERIOR, NO.41 CLEVEDON ROAD: Refurbishment by William Leiper. Features of particular note include ornate timber panelling, marble chimneypiece with carved timber overmantel. Series of stained glass by David Gauld.

Statement of Special Interest

The terrace was formerly known as the Montgomerie Quadrant, Ian Paterson, GDC, has linked the redecoration to the occupant, Leonard Gow Jr of Allan C Gow and Co, shipping firm, for whose brother, John Barnett Gow, George Walton had worked at Ledcameroch, Bearsden, 1897. It thus seems highly probable that Walton was responsible for the work at 31 Cleveden Road which survives in almost pristine condition.

Information regarding the interior of 33 Cleveden Road added 2009.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the 1997 Act. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
