Holmwood House

61-63 Netherlee Road
Central Scotland
G44 3YG

Holmwood has been described as Alexander 'Greek' Thomson's finest domestic design. It was built in 1857-8 for James Couper who, with his brother Robert, owned Millholm Paper Mills on the banks of the River Cart.

The architectural style of the house is a picturesque adaptation of classical Greek. Many rooms are richly ornamented in wood, plaster and marble. Thanks to investigation by Historic Scotland, Thomson's original rich decoration, based on themes from the classical world, is beginning to emerge. Original stencilled decoration has been found, and visitors may follow the progress of continuing conservation work on this.
