4 Bedroom house

Ballaig Avenue, Bearsden, G61

Offers over £340,000

  • Type House
  • Style/Floor Detached

An early post-war four bedroomed detached house in the Thorn district of Bearsden. The property sits on a corner plot with Milverton Avenue, amidst a generous garden which, to be fair, has become somewhat overgrown. The house has been owned by our client for decades and has remained, largely, unmodernised for any years, lying unoccupied for most of the last year. Clients will see from the photographs herein that the subjects are in poor condition - in part the lack of upgrading but more so the result of water damage caused by a burst heating pipe in the attic. Whilst remedial works were undertaken by Rainbow International Restoration (part of ISS) in the spring of 2019 to dehumidify and strip out those areas affected in the property, it has been left in a basic state and will require a significant upgrade internally, along with works to improve the garden. This truly, therefore, is a blank canvas and clients should be aware that works would need to be undertaken and completed before the house could be occupied. We, and the Home Report surveyor, believe this has been suitably price reflected and allows the market the appropriate scope to instigate the necessary upgrading and investments needed, to renovate the house and, in so doing, add value. Creating, ultimately for the purchaser, a home of their style, specification and budget. The house has double glazing and there is a gas central heating system with a modern Baxi Geotec condensing combination boiler. The accommodation comprises - generous hall that, in effect, is almost a room, two public rooms, four bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom/toilet. A rear covered porch, with three stores, has doors to the garden and into the property's single garage. The garden has a very broad frontage and is screened and protected by a mature privet hedge, with driveway access off Ballaig Avenue and pedestrian access via a gate and arch, set into the hedge, from Milverton Avenue. Within the garden there are clearly some planted specimen shrubs but the garden is somewhat overgrown and would form part of the overall programme of refurbishment required. The house is located about half a mile west of Bearsden Cross in a prime area and, therefore, really does feel at the heart of the town. Nearby is Thorn Park, Thorn Tennis Club and Bearsden Golf Club. School catchment is Castlehill Primary, St. Nicholas' Primary and Bearsden Academy. On Ledcameroch Road is the Junior School for The High School of Glasgow. Bearsden Cross has a great range of local shops and services, including a Marks & Spencer's (foodhall), and, just south of The Cross, is Bearsden Railway Station with its four trains an hour into Glasgow's West End and City Centre, including a service terminating at Edinburgh, Waverley. This is a home with great potential suitably executed.
