Norwood Lodge, a stone built detached Lodge House, was formerly the gate lodge to Norwood House - one of Bearsden's earliest Victorian mansions, now the location for the Norwood Park Apartments. The Lodge is a pretty two bedroomed, all-on-the-level, house with slate roof and rear extension (flat roof) dating from approx. 30 years ago. It provides a three apartment layout that a comprises good sized reception hall, a pleasant lounge with corner position, with windows both to front and side and fireplace with Living Fame coal effect gas fire, two bedrooms (a double sized master and a second twin sized bedroom with en-suite bathroom with modern suite in white), a well-proportioned kitchen with dark oak units and, finally, a shower room also with a modern three piece white suite and an oversized shower enclosure with powerful thermostatic shower. Rather usefully, via a metal loft ladder (removable), there is a floored and lined attic space (with skylight window). The property is very much of a size that should appeal to individuals and couples, providing easy living with all-on-the-level accommodation and with an area of garden that is enough to enjoy but not too much as to be a burden - the rear garden enjoying easterly, westerly and, predominantly, southerly aspects. To the side of the house is a very good-sized covered carport, accessed through a Wessex garage door, with this carport, and, indeed, its back area, doubling up as a useful sheltered "covered" area for outside socialising, even when raining. The property has a gas central heating system with a Potterton Promax Combi HE Plus boiler and there are double glazed windows, featuring hardwood frames in the rear extension (kitchen, bathroom, twin bedroom and en-suite bathroom) and with secondary glazed windows in the lounge. The window in bedroom one and the side window to the twin bedroom (bedroom two) is single glazed. Decoratively, the house is painted white, giving it an airy feel, and floor coverings include solid oak in the reception hall and kitchen, with carpets in the lounge and bedrooms and vinyl in the en-suite bathroom and the shower room. Outside, to the front, there is a monoblock driveway/parking area for two to maybe three cars by the main entrance gateposts to Norwood. To the easterly side of the house, there is a pathway with gate accessing the rear garden. The rear garden incorporates the aforementioned carport and covered area (with water tap) and with a slabbed pathway running along the back of the house where there is a further external water tap and external power point. Beyond this, with a brick retaining wall, is an area of grass with a drying green, a slabbed patio and a small hidden timber garden shed. The back garden is bordered by stone wall to the west, beech hedgerow to the south and conifers and a stone wall to the east. The back garden is totally private. The lodge enjoys a fantastically convenient location just a few hundred metres south of Bearsden Railway Station (offering four trains an hour into Glasgow City Centre and West End, including a direct service to Edinburgh, Waverley) and the rather handy Co-op store at the top of Station Road. Bearsden Cross is just under a mile to the north and here you will find an excellent selection of shops and services that will cater for most day-to-day requirements, including a Marks & Spencer's (foodhall), a quality butchers and fishmongers, coffee shops and good restaurants. In a way, Norwood Lodge is a little bit of Bearsden history and it represents a rather appealing proposition.
