more details

• A unique Pre-War Detached house (approximately 2700 ft2). • Great views, sizeable garden of some 1/3 acre. • Extended and very impressively appointed. • Four bedrooms (three with en-suites, plus further bathroom). • Three public rooms and games room. • Home office (or bedroom 5), kitchen and utility, WC. • Gas central heating, double glazed, alarm. • Detached double garage, with two electric garage doors. The Mailings is in the Hamlet of Bardowie, in the ancient Parish of Baldernock, on the easterly outskirts of Bearsden and Milngavie. Built originally in the 1920's the property has been transformed by our clients, who have owned the house for thirty years, into a hugely impressive family home via significant extensions and programmes of upgrading. It really is a superb property, one that affords a great deal of flexibility in terms of lay-out - the games room, on the first floor, could easily be made into a sizeable bedroom and, if not required, the home office could be a child's single bedroom. Our clients created a real feature, at the heart of the house, with the large open-plan lounge and conservatory, with a further open plan arrangement to the staircase and a connection to the kitchen via a superbly designed central serving area/breakfast bar. Of the four main bedrooms, three have en-suites, the main bedroom having a particularly large one (with the added luxury of underfloor heating) along with a fine sized, and fitted, en-suite dressing room. Clients will note from the floor plan that two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor. The property has been fastidiously maintained and the specification is impressive - quality PVCu double glazed windows and doors, a gas central heating system with an efficient Worcester Greenstar 35CDi boiler plus an open fire in sitting room and a Jotul wood burning stove in the lounge, security system, contemporary sanitaryware spec, quality fitted kitchen with granite worktops and fitted appliances, a utility room and, outside, a detached double garage with two remote controlled electric garage doors. Externally, clients will see from our photographs and video that the house has quite a setting with views to the front, beyond Balmore Road, over fields to Bardowie Loch and Castle and beyond this to the horizon of The Campsie Fells. At the rear, The Mailings has a gorgeous garden, with a sunny southerly aspect, that backs directly onto farmland with an expansive rural view beyond. GROUND FLOOR Reception Hall; WC; Sitting Room with triple aspect, including French doors to front garden patio, and at focal point of the room, a fine mahogany fireplace with a mirror overmantel and an open fire; Dining Room (open plan to lounge); the main living room area including Lounge with the Jotul stove and a large Conservatory; Kitchen with a range of oak units, some glass fronted, some in stainless steel, with granite worktops, there is a waste disposal unit and appliances include - a Stoves stainless steel range cooker with five burner gas hob above which is an externally vented cooker hood; additional oven by Electra, a Fisher & Paykel ''drawer' dishwasher and a Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer (Fisher & Paykel are high end manufacturers). As mentioned earlier there is a breakfast bar/serving area dividing the kitchen to the living area and this double-sided space is a very clever addition below which, on both sides, are storage cupboards; Utility Room fitted in a New England style with cream-coloured units and a two bowl Belfast sink with ''hose tap'. Rear Porch with storage shelves; Bedroom 1 - a sizeable Principal Bedroom Suite with the bedroom incorporating windows to the rear and French doors to the garden and in the corner of the room a fitted vanity area with mirrored vanity units and counter level storage cupboards. Opposite the bed is a wall recess for a flat screen TV; en-suite Dressing Room, all fitted, providing hanging facilities, drawers, shoe racks/shoe drawers, tie/cuff
