Schaw House is a magnificent ‘B’ listed Tudor gothic mansion house dating back to 1895 and has since been converted by Premier Burrell into a selection of luxury apartments of impressive proportions.

Located just north of Bearsden Cross, the location is ideal for those wishing to walk to the amenities on offer within The Cross including a Marks & Spencers Simply Food, a range of restaurants, cafes, delicatessens, shops, bank and post office.

On entering, the accommodation begins in the broad entrance hall where the theme of light, neutral décor, modern ceiling lighting, solid doors and oak flooring continues throughout. The full loop of accommodation then continues in the lounge open to dining area which together are illuminated by contemporary wall lights and five separate windows on three sides of the room. The fully fitted kitchen contains a breakfast bar and the specification includes granite surfaces, under unit lighting and a range of integrated appliances by Bosch, Siemens and Hotpoint including gas hob, oven, microwave, washer dryer, fridge freezer and dishwasher. A choice of two exits then return you to the main entrance hall and the other, towards the sleeping quarters in the form of two well sized double bedrooms each with fitted wardrobes / storage and bedroom one features a beautifully tiled en suite bathroom with mains shower above the bath and heated towel radiator. Finally, the principal bathroom offers a four piece suite with more Duravit sanitary ware, a bath and a lovely large walk in wet room / shower area with mains thermostatically controlled shower. There are several storage cupboards off both hallways and as the photographs and video display, the specification and peaceful yet convenient setting should prove popular with young professionals and those looking to downsize alike.

What we love about our house
I lived in Bearsden throughout my childhood and on return to Glasgow after several years spent in London it was the top choice of location due to the thriving local area and close proximity to both the West End and City Centre for both work and social activities. The traditional sandstone building combined with the modern interior was exactly what I was looking for and the rarity of a private entrance was a real draw. The flat has been a fantastic home and one that I’m sure others will enjoy.
Since the mid 1800's, Bearsden grew steadily due to its new rail links to Glasgow and today it is firmly established as one of the most desirable and indeed affluent areas to live in Scotland. With such a diverse range of amenities on offer, Bearsden and Milngavie residents enjoy a wide selection of shops and supermarkets, with Marks and Spencer, Waitrose, Asda and Tesco all found locally. There are numerous coffee shops and bars in the area and a number of restaurants cater for every taste.
The area boasts bowling and tennis clubs, sports centres and no fewer than seven golf courses, all within ten minutes' drive. There is even an outdoor dry ski slope! For those who love the outdoors, Bearsden and Milngavie have a number of picturesque parks and outdoor spaces, with the start of the West Highland Way found in the centre of Milngavie. Mugdock Country Park is nearby and some of Scotland's finest scenery is only a short drive away.
There are a number of excellent nursery and primary schools in the area, with the highly regarded independent schools of The High School of Glasgow and Glasgow Academy having their junior schools nearby. Bearsden Academy and Boclair Academy are consistently high performers and offer secondary education in the state sector. Four train stations serve the area with direct services to both Glasgow and Edinburgh, numerous bus routes into the city centre and an international airport only fifteen to twenty minutes' drive away, Bearsden is a hard act to follow!
