Having been modernised and upgraded, this is a very impressive, one bedroom, retirement flat within the highly regarded Heatherdene development in Bearsden. Built circa 1988 by Sir Alfred McAlpine Homes, Heatherdene is built upon the former policies of Bearsden's landmark building Schaw House. There are some fifty-two in total (one and two bedrooms) that are attractively laid out in low rise, low volume buildings amidst very pleasant residents' gardens. Onsite, there is a warden (Monday to Friday mornings until lunchtime), along with a residents' lounge and a guest suite for overnight stays. It has a great location just to the north of Bearsden Cross (about half a mile away) and, therefore, within easy of the excellent facilities and services to be found there. The flat occupies a first-floor position and has aspects easterly (bedroom and kitchen) and westerly (lounge and shower room). As clients will see from the photographs herein, this apartment is very nicely presented and has been upgraded by way of a refitted kitchen and a very smartly refitted shower room. Furthermore, the heating was replaced in 2017 from the more traditional off-peak system to a very efficient system by Fischer with each room having an individual thermostat. In addition to which, the hot water cylinder was also previously upgraded to a high pressure system - all-in-all, a far better and more efficient working arrangement. The house is double glazed with timber framed units and the entranceway, which is shared with only three others, is protected and secured by a door entry phone system. Decoratively, the house is freshly presented in a calm neutral tone and there are renewed carpets to the lounge and bedroom. In terms of accommodation, the flat is well-proportioned and comprises reception hall with two storage cupboards, a spacious lounge with two windows to the front, facing west. Off the lounge is a good-sized breakfasting style kitchen with a fixed gateleg table for dining and with units that are in Shaker style and matt cream, with a contrasting worksurface (walnut style) and, above which, there is a ceramic tile splashback to the eyelevel units and with discreet under unit lights with LED bulbs Integrated appliances of halogen hob, filter hood, oven, concealed washing machine, free standing tumble drier and fridge freezer. The microwave will also be included in the sale. The bedroom is a large, double sized, bedroom with two windows to the rear and both his and her fitted, double width, wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors. Completing the accommodation is the modern fitted shower room with w.c. and w.h.b. and a large corner shower enclosure, in which is a powerful mains pressure shower . Wall mounted fan heater in the shower room for heating. Fitted bathroom furniture. The factor for the development is Hacking & Paterson of Glasgow, to which charges are billed quarterly and equate to approximately £109 per month This includes management fees, common buildings insurance, clearing of the communal entranceway, the warden's salary, maintenance of the common room and guest suite and, of course, garden expenses. Heatherdene really is a very fine example of a quality retirement development in a super location handy for all Bearsden has to offer.
