• 1930's Detached House in Gartconnell. • Three Public Rooms, five Bedrooms. • Kitchen, Bathroom, Cloakroom/WC. • Lovely corner garden (with Sinclair Avenue). • Gas CH with modern Worcester Greenstar combi-boiler. • UPVc double glazed windows to many rooms, but not all. • Original staircase access to sizeable Attic. • Generally dated specification, modernising required. Built circa 1935, this is one of the larger homes that was built by the admired builder, John Russell, in Bearsden's highly desirable Gartconnell district. A fine Detached family House (our client has owned it since 1975), it provides five bedrooms and three public rooms and sits on a generous corner garden with an ''In-and-Out' driveway (to both Edgehill Road and to Sinclair Avenue). The rear garden orientated south to capture the sun. The property is of brick cavity construction to which, we understand, there is cavity wall insulation. It is finished in white painted render under a slate roof and attached to the east gable is a single garage, a covered ''drying' port and two brick stores. The former Loggia, to the rear of the house, has been glazed (including patio doors) to make a more year-round sunroom. Whilst the central heating boiler is very modern (Worcester Greenstar Classic 34CDi ErP combination boiler) and many of the windows have been replaced, in recent years, with UPVc double glazed units it is fair to say that, generally, the subjects are dated in terms of specification and finish. Some original features, though, certainly contribute to the character of the house and these include the lovely hardwood herringbone flooring (hall, lounge [beneath the carpet], dining room, study, upper hall, and bathroom), the original leaded hall door, the stained leaded staircase window, and the Vitrolite tiling in the bathroom. It has been a great family home for our client for some 37 years and only a requirement to now downsize prompts the sale. An opportunity, therefore, presents to acquire this fine family house, stamp one's mark upon it, and enjoy it similarly for decades to come. GROUND FLOOR Vestibule; Hall; bay windowed Lounge with double aspect and with a marble fireplace; bay windowed Dining Room; Living Room with original Crittall door to the Loggia (Sunroom); Kitchen; Cloakroom/WC. FIRST FLOOR Spacious upper Hall with window; four Double Bedrooms; Single fifth Bedroom (Study); Bathroom. ATTIC LEVEL From the first-floor hall a door opens to reveal an original staircase that takes you directly into a sizeable, floored and mostly insulated Attic. GARDENS To the front a low-level brick and rendered garden wall curves around the front perimeter of the plot, behind which is beech and privet hedging. The "in-and-out" driveway is tarmac. There is an oval shaped area of grass fringed by good planting and a variety of shrubs. To the west side of the house is a path and a thickly planted bed with shrubs and trees. To the east side is hardstanding laid to concrete upon which there is a timber Garden Shed and access to the ''drying' port, stores, and the kitchen door. The rear garden is the largest area and offers a mix of grass, shrub beds, trees and some cultivated beds that could be used for vegetables/fruit. Directly outside the Loggia is a patio. The rear garden is enclosed by privet hedging. EPC: D Council Tax: G Tenure: Freehold
