A handsome, stone built, detached villa which offers flexible accommodation of nine principal apartments, all set amidst large established gardens, at the end of this quiet cul-de-sac.
Garwhitter Drive is one of Milngavie’s premier addresses, located just off Baldernock Road, amidst similar stone built detached and semi-detached family homes.
Garwhitter House sits at the end of the road, within large enclosed gardens and benefits from an ‘in and out’ driveway, entering from Garwhitter Drive and exiting onto Barloch Road.
The present owners have occupied the house for 20 years and during this time have maintained the property to a superb standard. The roof has been re-slated and the majority of windows have been replaced with timber sash double glazed units. The entire house has been also repointed.
The video and floorplan will give a better idea of form and layout, but a brief summary of the accommodation compromises, on the ground floor: Entrance vestibule, reception hall with cloakroom off (WC/WHB), bay windowed living room with fireplace, sitting room with fireplace, large family kitchen giving access through double doors to the dining room. There is also a rear porch leading to the garden and parking area. The property also has a large laundry room and a spacious, under-stairs cupboard.
Upstairs there is a large upper hall, principal bedroom with fireplace, four further double bedrooms, home office/study, family bathroom and further shower room. From the upper level, all front facing rooms enjoying superb views over Milngavie village onto the hills beyond. There is gas fired central heating which is complemented by an open fire in the sitting room and a log burning stove in the lounge. There a large loft accessed by a ramsay ladder, which is ideal for storage.
As the photographs show, the house is decorated in neutral shades throughout, complemented by hardwood floors, original panelled doors and architraves, ceiling plasterwork, stained glass and beautiful period fireplaces.
The superb front garden is accessed via a wide gravelled and cobbled driveway which leads to the gravel area in front and to the side of the property. The remainder of the front garden is level lawn with established shrub and tree borders, all enclosed by neat hedging and a substantial brick wall.
The front driveway gives access past the house and around to the rear which leads to the large carport and further driveway which exits onto Barloch Road. There is an original garage with slate roof, currently used as a workshop/store and the remainder of the rear garden is level and mainly lawn, bounded by mature trees and shrubs.
This superb family home benefits from a very peaceful location within beautiful gardens, yet is only a few hundred yards away from the excellent amenities within Milngavie town centre.
Milngavie railway station is approximately a quarter of a mile away from the house, and a regular bus service operates along Glasgow Road.
Milngavie is also very well catered for with junior and senior schools, a wide variety of leisure activities including the start of the West Highland Way, Mugdock Country Park, Milngavie Reservoir and Nuffield Health Club/golf course. Just around the corner, off Barloch Road, is open park land which is ideal for dog walking, daily exercise etc.
