Craig Barton is a privately commissioned and individually designed detached villa, dating from 1954, set amidst a generous "natural" garden of some 0.5 acres in Strathblane's premier address, Moor Road. Within same, it sits proudly at the entrance to this highly sought-after location on the corner with Moor Road and Old Mugdock Road. Screened at the front by a high, well kept beech hedge with grass verge and to Old Mugdock Road by a stone dyke wall. A post and wire deer fence to the rear backs on to moorland (south) and by a brick wall and hedgerows to the neighbouring house. The design of the original house is a very pretty one, almost English Home Counties cottage in appearance, finished in white painted render with red brick detailing, set underneath a steeply pitched rosemary clay tiled roof. In the 1970's, the house was twice extended - to the east side and rear (south) to provide a sunroom and study (or fifth bedroom) and to the westerly side of the house where a large laundry/utility room was added, off the kitchen. In all, the subjects extend to some 2,103 sq. ft. with a balance of three public rooms plus study (bedroom five) and four bedrooms (three upstairs, one downstairs). Supporting the bedrooms are a bathroom, a created en-suite shower room to the main bedroom and a downstairs guest toilet. Heating is mains gas with an Ideal Mexico floor standing system boiler and windows are almost alldouble glazed (mostly by Everest (a variety of vintages)), along with more recently installed units from years as recent as 2010 and 2012. The window from the kitchen to the utility room is a retained single glazed Crittall window, as are the two lancet windows at the turn of the staircase (but have external secondary glazed panels). The east facing side window of the sunroom is timber framed with a narrow gauge double glazed unit. The property has cavity wall insulation. A much-loved family home, it is fair to comment that much of Craig Barton is old fashioned and of a dated specification but this has been price reflected to allow the market the necessary scope and opportunity to upgrade accordingly. Indeed, the house, given its size of garden, would lend itself very well to being enlarged by way of extension/redesign, subject, of course, to securing the necessary planning permissions and approvals. Accommodation The subjects afford the following:- Ground floor Entrance vestibule with store cupboard, reception hall, cloakroom toilet (w.c. & w.h.b.), sitting room with double aspect (east and south) and fireplace with open fire at its focal point. Dining room with west and south aspects, including a French door onto the garden, again a tiled fireplace, this time with gas fire. Serving hatch to the kitchen with server surface and cabinets below. Sunroom with triple aspect, including patio doors west to a sun terrace, study (or fifth bedroom). The kitchen has some units that date from when the house was built but mainly those from the 1980's. The Neff double oven, ceramic hob and filter cooker hood, along with the Bosch slimline dishwasher and fridge will be included in the sale but, as detailed earlier, in-all-likelihood, a purchaser would look to upgrade. Utility/laundry room. Downstairs bedroom (bedroom four) with double aspect (east and north).
