A particular feature of this property in Gleniffer Cottage is the outstanding gardens.

The established grounds are mainly level, enclosed and provide privacy and seclusion. To the rear of the property there is a well-tended garden with an extensive area of lawn surrounded by mature flowering beds together with an area of mature herbaceous borders.
The property is further complimented by gas central heating, double glazing and is protected by a security alarm system.
Thorntonhall is a quiet leafy village, located approximately 8 miles south west of Glasgow, characterised by substantial detached houses in a series of tree lined streets and cul-de-sacs and is recognised as one of Glasgow’s premier residential addresses. A number of substantial modern mansions have been built on the sites of the original dwellings and significant ongoing investment continues to be made by the residents in their homes.
A regular train service runs from Thorntonhall to Glasgow Central Station and excellent shopping facilities can be found in East Kilbride (3 miles) and Newton Mearns (4 miles). There are a number of golf courses in the area and also a selection of local health clubs. Calderglen Country Park is also within easy reach.
Private schooling is available on the Southside of Glasgow at Hutchesons' Grammar School, Craigholme, Belmont House and also at Hamilton College and Fernhill School.
The M77 provides commuter access to the City Centre, Glasgow Airport and along with the Southern Orbital provides an excellent connection to the Central Scotland motorway network as well as south towards Ayrshire and Prestwick Airport.
