Positioned upon an enviable corner plot in the heart of Bearsden's conservation area, this imposing detached period villa is a striking family home which provides circa 2100 sq. ft of accommodation across seven principal apartments. The property, erected by renowned builder John Russell in the early 1930's, is set amongst beautiful south facing garden grounds stocked with a variety of seasonal shrubbery and foliage, with immediate aesthetic appeal provided via an attractive white faade highlighted by red brick dressings. A programme of internal upgrading and modernisation should be envisaged and is, of course, price reflected. That said, No.4 Thorn Drive is an undeniably special family villa that requires early internal inspection to appreciate its near boundless potential and abundant inherent value. Notably, whilst pedestrian access to the plot is provided via a gateway from Thorn Drive, further vehicular/pedestrian access is afforded from Colquhoun Drive. The property itself is accessed via imposing storm door entryway which gives way to a vestibule and internal courtesy door. Regarding the internal accommodation, the subjects comprise in full:- Large reception hallway laid to original hardwood flooring with feature fireplace, cloakroom off and feature bay window with ample room for console/study table, sizeable bay windowed lounge with feature fireplace and courtesy door to a south facing sun veranda, dining room, kitchen and doorway to a rear vestibule, tiled wet room. A half turn stair leads to the upper floor of the home, with the impressively proportioned landing providing access to four well sized bedrooms (three doubles and a further single), with both the master and second bedrooms particularly notable for their generous proportions. A three-piece family bathroom completes the accommodation of the first floor, whilst access to the floored and lined attic space is to be found through a cupboard off the landing. Externally, the property exudes a real sense of space and privacy and is hardly overlooked as a result of its corner position. Expanses of lawn are bordered by a variety of mature trees and shrubbery, whilst a south facing veranda is accessed straight from the lounge. Off street driveway parking is accessible from Colquhoun Drive which, in turn, leads to an attached single garage. Situation Thorn Drive has a highly convenient location just to the north of The Cross. Here you will find an excellent selection of shops and services, including a Marks & Spencer's (food hall), an excellent butchers and fishmongers, along with restaurants, coffee shops, a bistro bar, banks, a well-stocked Post Office and quality retailers. Bus services operate on nearby Drymen Road and, just south of the Cross, Bearsden Railway Station with four trains an hour into Glasgow's West End and City Centre, including a service terminating at Edinburgh, Waverley. School catchment is for Bearsden Primary School at The Cross with secondary provision at the excellent facilities of Bearsden Academy at Courthill. On Duntocher Road is, the new St. Nicholas Primary School and, on Ledcameroch Road, the junior school for the private High School of Glasgow. Bearsden has tennis clubs, golf courses and an excellent local authority sports centre, with private health clubs found in neighbouring Milngavie.
