Enjoying an idyllic, tree-lined setting within mature garden grounds of just over one acre, a magnificent, four bedroom, detached bungalow which has recently undergone an extensive programme of extension and refurbishment. Formed on one level, this impeccably finished home now offers seven principal apartments of over 2600 sq ft and affords beautiful aspects towards the surrounding fields and countryside. The delightful hamlet of Craigton village lies less than one mile from Milngavie and in particular, Douglas Academy which can be reached on foot via a network of lovely walking paths which continue past Clober Golf Club, to Milngavie Centre and north, linking to the West Highland Way and Mugdock Country Park. This semi-rural setting is therefore ideal for a wide selection of services within Milngavie including the excellent schooling at all levels and train station with frequent services to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
For those wishing a private setting, you will be hard pushed to match that of Hilton View and the proportions are immediately evident within the expansive entrance hall which is complimented by solid oak flooring which continues throughout much of the home. The hub of the home is unquestionably the vast sitting/dining room which opens to the kitchen and features a wood burning stove and is flooded in natural light on three sides including doors at the far end, to the patio and gardens. Formed around a centre island, the kitchen features light coloured wall and base units, brick effect splashback tiling, a range of integrated appliances and accesses the adjoining utility room with door to the rear garden. At the far end of the hall, French doors open to the split-level lounge featuring almost floor to ceiling windows and open fire and the sleeping quarters include four sizeable, double bedrooms, bedroom one with adjoining en-suite and bedrooms two and three with an interconnecting Jack & Jill en-suite. All four bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes, bedroom three also offers a dressing room with a window and accessed off the hall is a WC and next to bedroom four, the family bathroom.On arrival, the freshly tarmacaddemed driveway enters between a beautiful stone pillared entrance and continues beyond the home to a more extensive, level tarmacadam area which was formerly a tennis court. There are lawned gardens complimented by an array of plants and shrubs and at the far corner and lying much lower than the plot itself, a small burn provides a soothing backdrop. The gardens are well-screened by mature trees and fencing beyond which are open fields and countryside. EPC – Band D
