Bearsden, East Dunbartonshire, G61 4AL
Built around 1900, this substantial stone built semi detached villa commands an elevated position overlooking Colquhoun Park. The house, whilst requiring a fair degree of attention, represents a great opportunity to upgrade, further develop and extend, to ultimately create a magnificent family home in one of Bearsden’s most established locations. Indeed, the adjoining property is a great example of what can be done, having a bespoke architect designed extension added to it. The interior is laid out over two floors and currently comprises: an outer vestibule opening into a welcoming reception hall. From here, stairs ascend to the upper accommodation and a door opens into a bright and spacious bay windowed lounge with lovely views to the front. To the rear of the lounge is a sizeable dining room which has a deep cupboard off and beyond the dining room is the kitchen which has two rear facing windows and an adjoining glazed vestibule/porch with door out to the rear gardens. Purchasers may consider changing the layout here and make the dining room into a large dining kitchen and alter the existing kitchen to a utility room and wc. Moving upstairs, on the half landing, there is a well proportioned bathroom and off the upper landing is a bay windowed master bedroom which has the best views in the house. There is a single bedroom, also to the front and the third bedroom is to the rear. There is also an internal home office space next to this bedroom. The wall between this room and the third bedroom could be taken away to enlarge the bedroom if required.
The gardens to the front have steps leading from the pavement up to the front door and a path continues around the side of the house. The gardens, whilst sloping are very private and offer the opportunity to be terraced to provide a multitude of useable spaces. To the front, the gardens enjoy a south facing aspect and have a private patio area taking in the views and mature trees and shrubs feature throughout.
Bearsden train station is situated at the northern end of Station Road and provides a frequent rail service to Glasgow and Edinburgh and the house is a short stroll from the wide array of amenities on offer at Bearsden Cross. These include a selection of shops, restaurants, Marks & Spencer Food Hall, delicatessens, banks and post office to name but a few.
