4 Bedroom house

Moor Road, Strathblane, Glasgow, G63

Offers over £455,000

*****UNDER OFFER****A detached house built to a unique design in a secluded location on the highly sought after Moor Road, Strathblane. Mornish is a fine example of 1960's domestic Scottish Modernism and was designed by architect John Boys of Lothian Barclay Jarvis, a successful Glasgow practice that later became Lothian Barclay Jarvis and Boys. Contemporary with Jack Coia and Isi Metzstein, Boys studied at Glasgow School of Art and The School of Architecture Dundee. Early is his career he spent time on a study tour in Scandinavia and in his spare time was a keen yachtsman. Both of these influences are visible in the design and atmosphere of Mornish. Mornish is a ranch style bungalow with a 'Butterfly' roof. There are four bedrooms, two public rooms and a kitchen arranged around a central open space where the house is entered from a gravelled drive. An open plan sitting/dining room with floor to ceiling windows extends the sense of being in the garden and maximises the flow of light through the house. This and the use of natural materials throughout the house; exposed wooden beams, feature stone walls, Caithness stone and wood floors give a relaxed and harmonious atmosphere to the property. Mornish sits unobtrusively in the site amidst larch and pine trees, rhododendron and gunnera. A stream runs through the garden and can be heard bubbling from the garden room. Passing through the stone dyke wall, a more wild part of the garden adjoins Drumbrock Moor and is shared with pheasants and the occasional opportunist deer. A double garage with its own drive sits further down the site. To the far end of the garden is a rough area which would be ideal for a residential development plot subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
