HD Video Available. Formed over three levels, an impeccably upgraded and extended, three bedroom sandstone villa set amidst landscaped gardens. Parking provision and a garage are accessed via the cul-de-sac section of Killermont Road, just beyond the private and enclosed, rear gardens. The home has recently undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment in summer 2017 including the addition of a rear extension and the refitted kitchen has been opened through to the dining/family room to create an impressive heart of the home. The sympathetic refurbishment sits beautifully alongside certain charming features, one would expect of a traditional, Edwardian villa and the main, versatile accommodation is formed over two levels beyond which, a fixed ladder accesses the attic complete with wooden flooring, power, lighting and window. The location is ideal for those wishing to walk to a wide range of amenities on offer within Bearsden Cross and at Hillfoot including a number of supermarkets, local shops and restaurants and the area is served by excellent schooling at all levels. There are a number of nearby parks, sports centres, golf clubs and Bearsden station provides a frequent service to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The character and uncompromising specification are immediately evident on entering the reception hall with freshly painted wood panelling, exposed, treated wooden flooring, decorative balustrades and a charming window seat next to a stained glass window. The lounge features lovely, high ceilings which continue throughout, a shelved storage press, picture rail, open fire and a broad, bay window and the owners have installed a WC off the hallway on the ground floor. Formerly two rooms, the re-fitted kitchen now opens to the dining/family room complete with solid oak work surfaces and breakfast bar, Travertine floor tiles, cup handles, under unit lighting, breakfast bar area and a Smeg Range cooker (which may be available by separate negotiation). This cosy and extremely sociable living space features a wood burning stove beneath an oak mantel and has a charming press cupboard with original stained and leaded glass and the room offers ample provision as a family sitting room and for a dining table and chairs featuring inbuilt storage within the window seat of the bay window. A utility room extension was added in 2017 which opens to the rear garden and from the main hall, stairs lead to the broad, galleried landing off which are three well-sized, double bedrooms, the master bedroom of similar proportions to the lounge with a beautiful, decorative fireplace and further bay window.
A recently installed family bathroom includes a four piece suite with large shower enclosure and mains shower and tall, heated towel radiator. A fixed ladder within the store cupboard off the upper landing accesses the attic which is fully floored with wooden flooring and also contains a storage cupboard, power, lighting and a window. The gardens have been designed for ease of maintenance with the front having a paved pathway lead by a decorative rockery and barked flower beds and the rear garden was landscaped in Summer 2018, having a sizeable, slabbed patio next to an artificial lawn. The area is well-screened and enclosed by bordering, timber fencing, hedgerows and has a rear access gate leading to the parking area next to the single garage with power and lighting. EPC Band - C

What we love about our house
This house has a really traditional feel that we have made a labour of love to modernise and turn into our family home. The local primary school has been great for the children where they have developed enormously and we have all enjoyed the proximity to local sports clubs, supermarkets and restaurants. All round we’ve had a great time here and we’ll miss all the neighbours and friends we have made.
