A rare opportunity to acquire this stone built farmhouse conversion set within the grounds of Pollok Country Park.
Seldom available, a charming conversion of former farmhouse, converted in the early eighties, with open aspects over Pollok Country Park.
Sheep Park Farm is principally built of stone under a pitched slate roof and provides flexible accommodation with many of the principal apartments oriented to enjoy the views over the surrounding countryside
The property has been refurnished while retaining much of its original character and has been carefully maintained and modernised over the years by the current owners.

The property benefits from gas central heating. The gardens have been well maintained and mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and mature trees. An attractive terrace, adjacent to the sun room, ideal for relaxing or entertaining.
The area is well served by first class train and bus services to the city centre and to East Kilbride. The neighbouring suburbs of Shawlands, Pollokshields and Giffnock provide a broad range of excellent shopping facilities, supermarkets, fine restaurants, bars and numerous recreational facilities. Silverburn shopping centre provides an extensive range of shops, restaurants and supermarkets. There are several golf courses in the area including Pollok and Haggs Castle golf clubs and a selection of local health clubs.
Pollok Country Park is Glasgow's largest park and the only Country Park within Glasgow. In 2006 Pollok County Park was named the best park in Britain and in 2008, it was named the Best Park in Europe. Its extensive woodlands and gardens provide a quiet sanctuary for both visitors and wildlife.
The park was originally part of the Old Pollok Estate, which was home to the Maxwell family for over 700 years. In 1966 Mrs Anne Maxwell Macdonald gifted the estate, including Pollok House, to Glasgow Corporation with the condition that it remained a public park. The park also contains the Burrell Collection, a purpose-built building designed to hold the large, eclectic antique and art collection of shipping magnate William Burrell, who donated the collection to the City of Glasgow on his death. Another feature of interest is the award-winning fold of Highland cattle.
The M77 provides commuter 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.
