• A four bedroomed Stone House. • One of Bearsden's oldest homes. • Forms part of the charming West End Square • Dining Room, Dining Kitchen, Study and Conservatory. • Bathroom, Shower Room, Laundry, Attic Room. • Mostly double glazed, gas central heating, Garage, Summer House. West End in Bearsden in a charming courtyard enclave of some of the oldest properties in Bearsden. In total there are eight of the original stone homes set around the square with another two modern properties positioned at the entrance (one a conversion of an old stone building itself) and one further set at the far southwest corner. Although there is no absolute confirmation, the properties are believed to date from about 300 years ago and would have been amongst the very earliest built in the ancient Parish of New Kilpatrick, created in 1649 and named after the settlement that contained the original Parish Church (the Parish Church of which is still on the same site on Manse Road). Other buildings then emerged, most of them agricultural or worker's buildings, and West End is believed to have been amongst those that then emerged. The stone properties in West End are B Listed (listed in 1976) and are totally charming. For sale is No. 8, one of the larger homes, a two-storey house (end terrace of three) with single storey projections. A home of absolute character, its stone walls have a gorgeous blonde hue, all set below a handsome pitched and slated roof with fine stone chimney stacks. Our clients, who have owned the house since 2005, have conscientiously maintained and upgraded the house, amongst which has been the re-slating of the main roof (along with renewing the gutters and downpipes) in 2009, the single storey extension over the study re-slated in 2014 and the single storey ''west wing' overhauled. The whole of the front of the house has been re-pointed along with sections elsewhere, as needed. Some original single glazed windows are retained but most have been replaced with replica timber framed double glazed sash and case windows (dining room, the bedrooms and upper hall) and with timber framed ''hinged' windows in the study, bathroom and in bedroom 1 (the rear and side windows, the window to the front is sash and case). Prior to their ownership a PVC framed (stone coursework) conservatory was added to the rear of the house, along with PVCu back door and inner hall door. The spacious dining kitchen has a fitted kitchen, by Magnet commissioned by our clients, with granite worktops and a centre island and in 2014 Victor Paris were engaged to design and refit the bathroom - the result is the very well equipped, and contemporary, bathroom seen here. In addition to the formal study, our clients floored, lined and decorated an attic space (Velux window) to provide a particularly useful ancillary space which is used as a second home office (power, LED ceiling lights, two radiators and a pulldown wooden loft ladder for access). There is little doubt that owning this house involves owning a piece of Bearsden's history, but it is, at its heart, a fine family home (has four bedrooms, one on the ground floor) in a delightful tucked away corner of the town (off Maryhill Road between Canniesburn Toll and Killermont Bridge) that is brilliantly convenient for Bearsden's amenities as well as, particularly, accessing Glasgow's West End and City Centre. For those with children, the school catchment is Killermont Primary and Boclair Academy. Also in Bearsden is St Nicholas's Primary, on Duntocher Road, and the Junior School for the private High School of Glasgow, on Ledcameroch Road. Outside there is parking space in front of the house at the courtyard/square. The house has a sizeable area of private garden (nicely enclosed to the rear) as well as a small ''courtyard patio' to the east side of the building, laid with substantial flagstone. Off this is a short, gravel driveway leading to a detached single garage (timber).
