• Detached red sandstone villa situated in one of Old Bearsden's most prized addresses • Located just north of ''The Cross' and its many amenities • Tremendous potential to add value and become that ''forever home' • Requiring a significant programme of investment - price and survey reflected • Highly adaptable layout across eight/nine principal apartments • Floor area of approximately 2,231 sq. ft • Level garden plot with gated entryway leading to driveway • Ideally positioned for access to the area's fantastic public and private schooling facilities A notably handsome detached stone villa dating from the late 19th century that is set in the very heart of Bearsden's prestigious conservation area. A property brimming with inherent value and abundant potential for any incoming purchaser to remodel and redecorate according to taste and a rare opportunity for a wide cross section of purchasers looking to acquire a period of home of considerable charm and distinction. Over time, the property had been split into two separate conversions and, subsequently, reinstated to the sizeable original single dwelling as originally intended. Key period features such as ornate cornicework, original doorways and architraves, and stained glasswork at the entry door all contribute to the traditional charm of the property. Entry is granted, initially, via an imposing double storm door entryway, with an entrance vestibule and inner door offering access to the accommodation beyond which can be best summarised as:- Welcoming reception hallway with staircase, spacious sitting room with bay window and feature fireplace as focal point, dining room, through to galley-style kitchen, study, inner hall and side porch, shower room and breakfast room with courtesy door out to the rear garden. The staircase leads to the upper level of the property, with the mid landing providing access to a family bathroom and utility area. The full landing gives way to the four very well-proportioned double bedrooms (with the main two bedrooms featuring fireplaces with ornate surrounds) along with a smaller apartment which is traditionally set up as a further nursery bedroom (currently containing the remnants from a now defunct kitchen). Externally, established hedging set to the front border above stone wall provides a privacy screen, with iron security gating offering pedestrian and vehicular access to the plot from either side. The level plot is laid mainly to lawn, with sections of stone paving and a detached garage also to be found. Along with an internal programme of refurbishment, any incoming purchaser would most likely wish carry out their own landscaping and planting to the garden. Situation The house is located just north of Bearsden Cross and, therefore, the excellent amenities, shops, including an M&S Foodhall, quality butchers, fishmongers & independent retailers, cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, banks and a post office are literally on one's doorstep. Bearsden Primary is close by on Drymen Road, with secondary catchment at the excellent Bearsden Academy at Courthill, ranked seventh in Scotland in a 2019 league table. Also within Bearsden, and two streets away on Ledcameroch Road, is the junior school for the private High School of Glasgow and, on Duntocher Road, the newly opened premises of St. Nicholas' Primary. Just south of the Cross is Bearsden Railway Station with four trains per hour providing a link to the West End and an eighteen-minute commute to the City Centre. A service continues to Edinburgh Waverley. This traditional home is a significant property at this price-point. It presents, clearly, a great opportunity for those families looking to acquire a handsome traditional family home in the area, with the scope to stamp one's own mark upon. Sat Nav: G61 4BS
