• Two bedroomed flat. • In admired retirement development. • First floor. • New (2019) double glazing. • Electric heating. • Lounge, Kitchen, Shower Room. Built in the former grounds of Bearsden's landmark building, Schaw House, a two bedroomed Retirement Flat (60 years and over) built in 1986 by the Alfred McAlpine Group. ''Heatherdene' has been widely acclaimed as one of the very best Retirement Developments in Glasgow - low rise buildings of only 52 flats where entranceways, other than the very few main door flats, are shared by only four residents (two ground, two first). The development, and its grounds, are impeccably maintained (Factor: Hacking & Paterson of Glasgow) with regular cleaning of the communal areas and garden maintenance. In 2011 the buildings had cavity wall insulation installed. On site is a Warden (Monday to Friday, morning to lunch time) to ensure the smooth running of everything and there is a Residents' Lounge for social gatherings/events. For overnight stays, beyond the flats, there is the facility of a Guest Bedroom Suite next to the Residents' Lounge that can be pre-booked. This flat is on the first floor and is one of the larger models of two bedroomed flats, having two good sized double bedrooms and a lounge with a corner position, providing windows both to the south and to the west. Our clients had the windows replaced in 2019 with quality PVCu double glazed units finished in white to the interior and, in the development required, brown woodgrain to the exterior. A few years before this the hot water system was upgraded, doing away with the old hot and cold-water tanks, to feature a mains fed unvented hot water cylinder - more efficient, far better water pressure. The bathroom has been replaced as a shower room, featuring an ''oversized' enclosure with a Mira Go electric shower. As clients will see from the floor plan, there is good storage provision - two hall cupboards and fitted wardrobes in both bedrooms. Being on the top floor (first) the flat has a loft hatch (loft ladder) to a very useful, insulated and mainly floored, attic for storage. ACCOMMODATION A communal entrance (for the four flats) is protected by a door entry phone system. Here, a carpeted Hall and stairway ascends to the first floor - very bright, lots of glass; the flat itself - Reception Hall; Lounge; Kitchen - original units (appliances as seen will be included in the sale); two Double Bedrooms; Shower Room. LOCATION Heatherdene is most conveniently situated north of Bearsden Cross (approximately half a mile) and is extremely handy for the excellent local shops and amenities that Bearsden has to offer. At The Cross there is a Post Office and a Bank, a Marks & Spencer Foodhall and a few Cafes, restaurants and quality independent retailers. Just south of The Cross is Bearsden Railway Station. On nearby Drymen Road is a regular bus service. SAT NAV REF: G61 3AT
