This truly unique, three bedroom, semi-detached bungalow has been enhanced by the addition of a contemporary, rear extension and has been re-configured and upgraded. Occupying a particularly attractive location near Milngavie village centre, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a home which combines an attractive blend of original features alongside more modern fixtures and fitting including exposed brick walls and extension with vaulted glass ceiling and bi-fold doors. Situated towards the southern end of Clober Road, the centre of Milngaive is within easy walking distance with a range of supermarkets, shops and restaurants, banks, post office and train station offering a regular service to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The area is served by excellent schooling at all levels and is a popular choice for many who enjoy the network of walking and cycling paths and the West Highland Way which can be reached by crossing a bridge slightly further along Clober Road.
On entering, the hallway opens to a semi-open plan lounge and dining kitchen separated by a beautiful, exposed, brick wall with staggered edge and the solid oak flooring continues throughout several apartments. The log burning stove provides a focal point and heating to both the lounge and dining kitchen and the latter features light coloured units, granite surfaces and integrated appliances. Off the kitchen, is the aforementioned extension offering a fitted utility area next to the dining room with vaulted ceiling of glass skylight windows and bi-fold doors retract to provide access to the rear garden. The room is further complimented by copper and slate effect tiled flooring and a further wood burning stove. There are three bedrooms in all with one upstairs and two on the ground floor and the thoughtful design of the property ensures the upper bedroom is served by a bathroom with roll-top bath and downstairs, an inter-connecting Jack& Jill en-suite shower room links bedroom one with the main hallway. The well-proportioned, westerly facing, rear garden consists of a level lawn next to a block paved patio with pathway leading to the garage at the far end which is effectively split into two main compartments. Each is accessed with a courtesy door at the rear, one is utilised as a storage area with vehicle door at the front and the other offers a two room studio with WC. EPC – Band D
