Description

A truly special residence, Ballagan House is a magnificent country mansion set amongst (circa) nine acres of well kept garden grounds with a dramatic setting in view of the Campsie Fells. The property is located a short distance from the amenity rich Strathblane village centre and features a private tennis court for residents, the picturesque Ballagan stream, garage, plentiful parking provision, and a further external storage space. Direct access from the garden grounds is given to the beautiful Campsie Fells which offer fantastic hill walks for outdoor enthusiasts.
Ballagan has, over time, been adapted into five separate conversions, with this incredibly spacious and versatile two bedroomed property offering up some 1400 square feet of accommodation on the upper of two floors. Apartment four is notable for its high ceilings, retention of original cornice work, and peaceful, expansive aspects from the lounge across the gardens.
The property is accessed via a security controlled entry system which leads to an entrance vestibule with beautiful ‘Terrazzo’ styled tiling which in turn provides a doorway to a carpeted reception hallway. The internal accommodation extends to:-
Impressive dining/hall with step up to a dining area and significant storage cupboard off, beautiful lounge/drawing room extending to some twenty-three foot in length with parquet flooring, box bay window with window seat, original cornicework and recently fitted log burning stove.
There is a contemporary fitted kitchen with contemporary country style units, plentiful storage (both wall and base mounted), solid timber work surfaces, oven, combination microwave, hob, extractor hood, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The luxurious contemporary bathroom is finished entirely in Porcelanosa tiling and offers a walk-in shower, w/c, and wash hand basin. There is a further w/c to be found adjacent to the kitchen. The two bedrooms are both sizeable doubles, with the master (positioned to the rear of the apartment) offering a host of fitted storage space.
The property is heated via an oil fired central heating system and features sash in case timber framed windows.
Situation
Strathblane, and its immediate neighbour Blanefield, is a highly regarded, semi-rural community located just north of Milngavie suburb and proudly set at the southerly foothills of the Campsie Fells, a simply dramatic backdrop to the villages. With a very strong sense of local community, the villages are serviced by some local shops, including a couple of mini markets, an excellent delicatessen, Post Office, library and chemist. There is a bowling and tennis club, two hotels and a local pub. There is a well-regarded village primary school, with secondary provision at the excellent Balfron High, to which a bus service is laid on. For those seeking private education, there is The Glasgow Academy Preparatory School in Milngavie and The High School of Glasgow Junior School in Bearsden, with both having their Senior School in Glasgow West End. For a broader range of shops, Milngavie, which is about a ten-minute drive away, has a pedenstrianised centre with a variety of independents but also multiple retailers of Tesco, Boots, Marks & Spencer’s (food hall) and Waitrose stores. Milngavie has a railway station with four trains an hour into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre, with one of the services continuing onto Edinburgh, Waverley.
