An early post-war, brick built three bedroomed, semi-detached bungalow in the Westerton district and, within same, enjoying a lovely location beside the Parish Church, and not far from Westerton Railway Station. It has a pleasant & private rear garden. The property is set over two floors with a chalet style layout with three main apartments downstairs, together with a kitchen and bathroom and two further apartments upstairs (one with Velux window). The property could be utilised as two public rooms and three bedrooms or, if required, a lounge and four bedrooms, should that be preferred. It is fair to point out that, decoratively and in terms of general specification, the house is somewhat dated and therefore clients should be prepared to undertake a programme of investment and upgrading post purchase. That said, there is a gas central heating system with a Vokera Compact combination boiler (about fourteen years old) and many windows have been replaced with UPVC double glazed units, as well as the front storm doors and the rear kitchen door (circa. 2002), it being only the lounge and bedroom one that are timber framed windows (still with a narrow-gauge double-glazed unit, however) and the Velux window in the smaller room/bedroom upstairs. More significantly, perhaps, the house walls were re-roughcasted about 15/20 years ago and the roof retiled some thirty years ago. The house has an essentially level plot, the rear garden of which enjoys its westerly aspect to capture the afternoon and evening sun. To the side of the house, there is a small lean-to single garage with two side opening timber doors and, in the back garden, a timber garden shed, an aluminium framed greenhouse and two useful stores by the back door. In terms of accommodation, the subjects comprise entrance vestibule, reception hall with staircase and under stairs storage, lounge with a fireplace at the focal point with a Living Flame coal effect gas fire, small kitchen with old units, two downstairs bedrooms (or one bedroom and dining room, if preferred) and a bathroom with an orange coloured suite with an electric Mira Vie shower (finished in chrome) over the bath. The staircase, which is steeper and narrower than current standards, but is from the time of build, ascends to a first-floor landing, from which there is access to bedroom three - a good size double room with storage provision and a double-glazed gable window. Bedroom four (or study) is a smaller room, has access to eaves storage, as well as general storage, and has a Velux window. The gardens to the front are protected by a privet hedge to sides and pavement and there is double wrought-iron driveway gates opening to a slabbed and red chipped driveway that leads to the garage at the side of the house. A pathway leads to the front door and around the side of the garage to the rear garden. There is a section of grass at the front with two plant beds. The rear garden is much larger, has a slabbed patio across the back of the house and, beyond this, a section of lawn with four drying poles. There are two beds, which, in fairness, are requiring to be dug over, and the aforementioned stores, shed and greenhouse. Having the church opposite is a lovely outlook and at the foot of Crarae Avenue, and just along Maxwell Avenue, is the heart of Westerton with the library, a local shop and, more importantly perhaps, the railway station which has regular services into Glasgow's West End and City Centre. Very close by, and one of the main reasons people buy in Westerton, is the terrific local primary school of Westerton Primary, with secondary provision at Boclair Academy.
