WHERE IS IT? In the Langside area of Glasgow, at a sharp bend in the River Cart, only a short walk from Langside station
The curved crescent comprised of two-storey terraced houses is believed to have been designed by Alexander Thomson but constructed posthumously by his architectural partner Robert Turnbull.
The houses are located upon a bend of the River Cart, with the rear gardens overlooking the water. Despite the risk of flooding from the river, the terrace has survived remarkably well.
It features many exquisite examples of Thomson’s motifs, such as the Ionic columns, and the first and last house jutting out like a bookend. Originally decorated chimneys adorn the rooftops, with beautiful stone ornaments set within the upper terrace. The elegant railings were restored between 1995 and 1996.
