One of Bearsden's early detached Victorian villas, believed to date from the 1870's, situated just to the west of Bearsden Cross and, therefore, at the very heart of this vibrant suburban community. A well-proportioned property of some 2155 sq ft, it has four public rooms and four bedrooms centred around generous lower and upper halls. It sits amidst a wide but moderately sized, for this style of home, garden that has been very nicely laid out and planted and benefits, undoubtedly, from its south facing orientation to the rear where the back garden is fully enclosed and gated to make it safe and secure for children. Indeed, the front garden is also made secure by wrought-iron driveway gates and mature hedgerows (front and westerly side), together with a fence to the east boundary. A handsome home, it is finished in blonde sandstone underneath a pitched and slated roof with timber soffits and fascias, including some attractive fretwork at the roof apexes. The property has provided a happy family home for many decades but it is fair to state that the house will require elements of refurbishment. This has been price reflected and allows the necessary scope for the market, and ultimately the purchaser, to invest as desired and to modernise and upgrade the property to their own fashion and budget and, in so doing, add value. In terms of accommodation, the subjects can be summarised as follows:- Ground floor • Entrance vestibule with storm doors • Reception hall with a really fine curving staircase with original newel posts and balustrade and a useful under stairs storage cupboard • Bay windowed sitting room with post-war tiled fireplace • Living room with corner position with windows to front (north) and easterly side and, again, with a post-war fireplace • Dining room • Family room • Kitchen with oak units with a contrasting white marble effect worksurface and stainless steel sink inset, windows are to rear (south) and side (west) and there is a back door • Bathroom with three piece coloured suite. First floor • A return-flight staircase ascends past a tall period window to a square shaped upper hall with hatch to attic • Four double bedrooms • Small shower room with three piece ivory coloured suite with electric Triton T80i shower. Windows in the property are largely the retained original single glazed sash and casement units. Central heating is mains gas with a Potterton Kingfisher system boiler with hot water cylinder. Outside The property has a detached, larger than standard, single garage that was built about 10 years ago. This is brick built and has power and light installed, courtesy door to side and a remote-controlled garage door. Summer house. Timber framed greenhouse. Coalbunker/garden store. Gardens to the front are screened by a mature beech hedgerow to the pavement and similarily to the westerly side with a fence to the east. Wrought-iron driveway gates open to a red chip driveway which extends down the side of the property to a second set of wrought-iron gates at the rear corner of the house before the garage. The red chip drive turns in front of the property for parking and as a turning bay and continues as a pathway around the easterly side of the house. There is an attractive shaped lawn to the front and side of the property, with well-stocked shrubbery beds following the line of the hedgerow. The rear garden is gated and secure, is south facing and has a small area of grass and a Tarmacadam hardstanding area immediately outside of the kitchen. There is then, beside the greenhouse, a large shrubbery bed which is well-stocked and, beyond this at the back left corner, an undeveloped area that would lend itself to a patio, vegetable garden, compost area, a shed or a play area.
