The period homes in Old Bearsden remain amongst the most admired not only within Bearsden itself but Greater Glasgow generally. They come to market seldom with ownership, typically, covering a generation. As such any opportunity to secure a home in the area is one to grasp.

This Semi-Detached House is located towards the top of Campbell Drive and is set up on a level, and wide, garden. It is but a short 0.4-mile stroll to the heart of Bearsden Cross where you will find a real sense of community and an almost village like feel with an excellent variety of cafes, restaurants, and quality retailers. At The Cross is the catchment primary school, Bearsden Primary, with secondary provision at the high-performing Bearsden Academy (currently ranked No.2 state secondary in Scotland, for academic results). Nearby, Ledcameroch Road, is the Junior School for The High School of Glasgow, it's senior school just south of Bearsden at Anniesland.

The property features quality replacement double glazed windows, installed approximately 15 years ago, with those to the front of a traditional sash and casement design to maintain the period look of the streetscape. Central heating is mains gas with, in 2017, the boiler was renewed with an Ideal Logic Heat H30 regular boiler.

The house has been the happiest of family homes for our client 0ver nearly 40 years, a wish to now downsize prompting the move. Now, therefore, is the opportunity for another family to enjoy all that living in this lovely corner of Bearsden and within this handsome semi-detached house affords. Clients can refer to our floor plan for the layout and our images will convey the subjects’ decorative finishes and fitments.

To the front is the original stone wall with a privet hedge above. Immediately to front is a small lawn with rose bed. Shrubs and further privet hedge to the east. Slab and gravel driveway extends down the side of the house and leads to the detached double garage. The drive provides parking for 4 to 5 cars. The garden is broad with the side garden featuring a stretch of lawn, with central bed and a secondary bed, at its end, featuring a holly tree. The side (west) boundary has a privet hedge and fencing. To the side of the garage is a small sundeck area.

The rear garden is compact and laid to grass with border path. It is enclosed by fence, hedge, and the gable of the garage. Given the width of the plot there is clear scope to create a division within the side garden (fence and gates) to create a larger area of rear garden.

The garage is double sized and detached. Two individual garage doors. Power and light installed and two side windows.


The house is within a prime area of Old Bearsden. It is but minutes’ walk to The Cross and the excellent range of shops and amenities to be found there.
