Property Description

One of Bearsden’s earliest stone Semi-Detached homes, The Lindens dates from 1885 and is located at the town centre only some 200 yards south of Bearsden Cross. A home of grand proportions its seven main apartments are set over ground and first floors, but it also has a basement level with two basement rooms, a cold store, and a more general storeroom. The attic, accessed via an original staircase, is fully floored and lined.
It truly has been the happiest of family homes for our clients who have owned the property for almost 40 years. It will now be time for another family to enjoy all that The Lindens has to offer.
• Entrance Porch
• Large Hall
• Grand Lounge with wide bow window
• Dining Room
• Home Office
• 4 Bedrooms including sizeable principal bedroom with bow window
• Kitchen with Aga
• Bathroom
• 2 WC’s

Retained is the original ceiling plaster work with the main bedroom, and particularly the lounge, magnificent examples. The original panelled doors are kept, but painted, with marble fireplaces in the lounge (painted) and in bedrooms 1 and 2. Whilst the two WC’s and the bathroom are of a modern spec it is fair to highlight that, generally, the specification of the house is dated. Apart from the double glazed, uPVC framed, sash and casement windows in the bathroom and upstairs WC all windows are original. Central heating is mains gas operating via a modern (2007) British Gas Worcester Greenstar 532i condensing combination boiler. The roof pitches were re-slated in two stages, 2005 (W) and 2015 (N&E). The house is alarmed.
The house sits upon on a sizeable plot of approximately 1/3 acre, the house itself set well back from Drymen Road and with a high stone wall, and planting, as a screen. Most of the garden lies to the back of the property where a large area of level grass is a great space for kids to play upon. The rear garden is enclosed and gated. Stone gate posts with iron driveway gates open to a drive that sweeps to the house where there is a slabbed hard standing at the front and a drive/parking area to the side of the house, and a single garage timber. Hedgerows provide boundaries to the garden, rhododendrons provide Spring colour, and some trees, including a magnificent Monkey Puzzle, interest, and feature.
