North Erskine Park is within the conservation district of Bearsden, its northern edge, and is located about half a mile from Bearsden Cross. Here is a late Victorian stone semi-detached villa, with a south facing rear garden, in need of modernising and upgrading. That said, the property has just had its main roof re-slated, with new lead work, (2019), has UPVC framed replacement double glazed windows (including Everest) of mixed vintage, 13amp wiring and a gas central heating system with a modern Worcester Greenstar 28i Junior combination boiler. Beyond this though, the house will require complete redecoration (which will probably include re-plastering), floor coverings, kitchen and bathroom but this, of course, has been price reflected, allowing the market the necessary scope to so do and, in turn, add value. Client should also refer here to the Home Report for a fuller analysis. The property has been in the ownership of our clients for a great many years and in that time the house was extended to make the larger kitchen and to add on a very useful ground floor study, flat roof (modern roof covering). Its location really is superb, falling within the catchment for Bearsden Primary (at Bearsden Cross) and for Bearsden Academy (at nearby Courthill). Beside Bearsden Academy are the newly opened premises of St. Nicholas' Primary and within Bearsden too is the junior school for the private High School of Glasgow. In terms of accommodation, the subjects comprise entrance vestibule with storm doors and, from here, a fifteen-pane panelled glass door opens to a long reception hall with a staircase to the upper floor and two useful under stairs storage cupboards. The lounge has a box bay window to the front, a display alcove and a tiled fireplace at the focal point. Separately, there is a dining room with shelved cupboard, side window and an open arrangement through to the kitchen. At the focal point of this room too is a fireplace with a gas fire - clients should note that neither chimney flues have been tested nor the gas fire in the dining room. These should be checked as part of any refurbishment. The kitchen is a good size and has a double aspect with windows to side and rear and a back door. The kitchen units are in oak but old and, undoubtedly, any purchaser would be looking to refit and renew. The study has patio doors to the rear and, initially, has a smaller area fitted with bookcases. Upstairs, a return flight staircase ascends, firstly, to a half landing with a skylight window above (single glazed), off which is a small bathroom with a three-piece pink coloured suite. On the top landing, there are two double bedrooms and a third small single bedroom (box room) suitable for a child. The master bedroom with the bay window to the front, affords a view towards Bearsden's iconic landmark - Schaw House. Outside, the property's gardens are orientated northwards to the front and southwards to the rear. At the front, privet hedges provide boundaries and screening and there is a long Tarmacadam drive extending up the side of the property to a garage (29'8" x 9'2" (9.04m x 2.78m)). There is a grass section at the front and, running down the side of the driveway, a flower/shrub bed. The rear garden is not large and is laid mainly to grass and is enclosed, again, by hedges and has a small Wendy House/shed. The garage is brick built but not in great order, it is long and tandem style for two cars. With Bearsden Cross so close the property is really handy for the excellent range of shops and facilities to be found there. Nearby, on Drymen Road, are regular buses and just south of the Cross in Bearsden Railway Station (four trains an hour to the West End and City Centre).
