Statement of Interest

One of the finest late Victorian villas in Wishaw. Originally called Heathery Park as it used to back onto Heathery Woods by Alexander Cullen (1856 - 1911) of Wishaw (Cullen, Lochhead and Brown after 1902). Cullen maintained the most successful practice in the Hamilton, Motherwell and Wishaw area of North Lanarkshire from 1889 until his death, securing contracts for numerous villas and the bulk of commercial and public works. A graduate of Glasgow University the City remained his primary stylistic influence though he amassed an extensive library bequeathed to Motherwell District Library that reveals a wide ranging and intellectual interest in architectural developments in Europe, Japan and America.
