  • Type House
  • Style/Floor Detached

In the former grounds of Bardowie Castle and one of only seven homes, including the castle itself, blessed to call the north shore of Bardowie Loch home is "Lochside", a high-quality luxury detached house built circa. 1992 as part of an exclusive private courtyard development of only three substantial homes - Lochside, Lochview and Birch House. A sizeable home (some 2,849 sq. ft., 267 sq. m., excluding the double garage), it has generous gardens of approximately 0.4 acres, lying mainly to lawn with planted borders, boundary hedges, some trees and a lovely sun terrace. Electrically operated gates open to access a private drive leading down the side of the house and to the courtyard, off which the property has a sizeable integral double garage with a remote-controlled electric garage door. In addition, Lochside has access/use of an area of shared loch frontage, totalling some 0.56 acres, with slipway for a boat. The house makes for a wonderful family home, its design reminiscent of the Georgian period with its symmetrical lines, finished in stone and beneath a handsome slated roof. It has five bedrooms in total three of which have en-suites, with the master also having a dressing room. Additionally, there is a family bathroom (which also has a sauna) and, on the ground floor, a guest toilet. Three fine public rooms include a grand drawing room with a handsome marble fireplace, a dining room and a family sitting room, ideally arranged on an open-plan basis to the kitchen to provide that so important "heart of the home". Off the kitchen is a large utility room and off the sitting room is a stunning, full height, hardwood conservatory with great views beyond the gardens to Bardowie Loch and the castle. The property is equipped with, classically designed, timber framed double glazed windows, there is a security alarm system and an oil-fired central heating system operating via an efficient Worcester Greenstar Heatslave condensing combination boiler (only renewed in December, 2017). Drainage is private to a communal septic tank, shared with the other two properties that form the courtyard. ACCOMMODATION Ground floor Reception hall with store; grand drawing room; dining room; family sitting room; large conservatory; modern style kitchen with extensive range of inbuilt appliances; sizeable utility room; toilet (w.c. & w.h.b.). First floor A return flight staircase ascends to a first floor hallway with store cupboard; large master bedroom suite with bedroom, dressing room, and en-suite shower room; guest suite with bedroom and en-suite shower room; bedrooms three and four are both doubles, with bedroom three also having an en-suite shower room; bedroom five, a single, is used as a study; main bathroom with four piece suite, including a shower cubicle and the aforementioned sauna. SITUATION Bardowie is just east and southeast of the suburbs of Bearsden and Milngavie, respectively, in an absolutely delightful semi-rural setting. It falls within the ancient parish of Baldernock, with its historic kirk. The castle, which dates from 1566, is the iconic building in the area and sits proudly beside Lochside and the shore of Bardowie Loch - home to the excellent Clyde Cruising Club and a wonderful facility and asset to have on your doorstep. Milngavie, the property's postal address, is the nearest town (about three miles away) and where the excellent secondary school of Douglas Academy can be found. Primary provision is at the absolutely delightful village primary school of Baldernock Primary at Barnellan. In Milngavie, there is the preparatory school for Glasgow Academy and, in Bearsden, the Junior School for The High School of Glasgow. The north of Glasgow is home to the fee-paying Glasgow Academy, Kelvinside Academy and The High School of Glasgow. Milngavie's shops are excellent and include a large Waitrose and a Marks & Spencer's (foodhall).
