Property Description

A beautifully presented, early post-war, chalet style Semi-Detached House in the sought after Hillfoot district.
With an elevated position that provides views towards the woodland surrounds of Douglas Park golf course this is a very impressive home with two double bedrooms plus a handy home office/nursery bedroom. The original arrangement of two separate public rooms is now open-plan creating a large main living area that runs the depth of the property with a bay window to the front and a set of patio doors to the rear accessing a newly landscaped (2023) rear garden that enjoys an ideal west facing orientation.
Our client has owned the house for over three decades and has maintained the property consistently and undertaken considerable improvements.
The kitchen boasts a quality fitted range of units, with a full complement of integrated appliances (as well as the plumbed in American style fridge-freezer). The bathroom was renewed, and fully tiled, with a Villeroy and Boch suite. The boiler was renewed (2022), along with new radiators in most areas. In the lounge there is a gorgeous limestone fireplace with a glass fronted, living flame, driftwood, gas fire (by Gazco, remote controlled) installed by Gibson and Goold (2016). The bathroom has underfloor heating. All windows, and external doors, are replaced with modern double glazed units. There is an alarm system (on a maintenance contract) and interlinked heat and smoke detectors. Most successfully, the attic has been fully lined with laminate flooring, insulation and decor. With its large Velux window (west facing) it makes for a very useful ancilliary room/space (access via loft ladder). A brick built property it has cavity wall insulation.
The house is one of only six built of this style in the district where the houses are positioned above the drive, accessed by a shared central pathway/steps with each neighbour. In this instance the shared access is with No.18 with the steps very nicely illuminated by wall lights. This elevated setting allows not only for the views but for a rising front garden where No.16 has it beautifully planted with a wide variety of specimen shrubs and rockery that is very low maintenance. Immediately to the front of the house is a generous, level, gravel sitting area for the morning/midday sun with a pathway extending around the side of the house, via a gate, to an enclosed and essentially level west facing rear garden. The rear garden was landscaped in 2023 and is bounded by 6’ fencing. The landscaping very well done and includes a large stone flagged patio and with a central Acer and two Pieris set against the side fence, with a Camellia being a burst of colour in February/March. Lovely features. There is a timber garden shed.
Hillfoot remains a highly popular district in no small part due to the local railway station with its regular services to the West End, City Centre, and a service also to Edinburgh. It has some local shops and restaurants and is minutes from those to be found at Kensington and, the heart of Bearsden, Bearsden Cross. As a home it will appeal to couples and individuals as well as to some families given that the Home Office boxroom could make for a cosy child's nursery.
