This is a very spacious, and rather special, Main Door “Villa Apartment” in one of Bearsden’s most admired addresses and with a great position opposite the expanse of Thorn Park and just along the road from Bearsden Golf Club.
It is a three-bedroom ground floor flat, with its own front door and rear door, an area of garden, driveway (three to four cars) and detached double garage plus two sheds. Specifically designed for our client it is one of only two apartments (the other being the first floor flat, also a main door) within this handsome detached building.
Previously, on the site, was a smaller detached house that our client purchased in 1978 who, with her late husband, significantly extended and developed the building (about 15 years ago) and through horizontal sub-division to create these two individual, and large, apartments. All services were renewed at that time and windows replaced. A handsome, rosemary tiled, roof was fitted to give the property a most appealing façade and one that is very much in keeping with the early 20th century streetscape of Thorn Road.
Its three bedrooms all have ensuite shower rooms in addition to which is a main bathroom. There are two generously proportioned public rooms, the lounge featuring a bay window, both with fireplaces. Importantly, the kitchen is dining sized with a dedicated dining area, increasingly a key space for current lifestyle to make the kitchen the heart of the home. As clients will see from our imagery there is oak engineered flooring (with tiling in the shower rooms and bathroom), oak internal doors, fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms, modern white sanitary ware, and oak shaker units in the kitchen offset by gorgeous light-coloured granite work surfaces. Central heating is mains gas where there is a Worcester Greenstar 38CDi Classic ErP combination boiler that was installed in July 2018. There is an alarm. Windows and external doors are double glazed (the exception to this being the two smaller single glazed timber framed units – one in the utility porch and the other being the side kitchen window.
The property will surely appeal to a broad profile of buyer from families to couples and perhaps particularly to those retired/semi-retired clients seeking a spacious, easy to run, but on the level property that still gives the room sizes and facilities one might currently enjoy in the “larger” two-storey property downsizing from.

Whilst there is, understandably, an element of communal living externally, given the apartment upstairs (No. 62), each apartment has its own driveway (monobloc), driveway gates (the gates are now just manually operated. They had a remote controlled, electric, mechanism but this nom longer works. Clients could install a new unit/system should they wish), and detached double garage (featuring an electric remote controlled garage door and with power and light installed, and a very useful floored attic loft area, with four Velux windows, for storage. 62A owns, we understand, the crescent shaped area of front garden, the strip of garden to the east side, as well as approximately half of the rear garden area. It has its own mono blocked patio set to the side of the garage, to the rear of which is its two, concrete sectional and roughcasted, garden sheds. The monobloc drive/path that runs across the front of the building is a communal area upon which cars cannot be parked.

The property is located within the highly regarded Thorn district, opposite Thorn Park and only some 100m from the fairways of Bearsden Golf Course. Also, along Thorn Road are the all-weather tennis course of Thorn Tennis Club with Bearsden Cross, the heart of Bearsden, only some half a mile away. Here you will find an excellent cross section of amenities and shops including a Marks and Spencers Food Hall and a well-stocked post office along with cafes and restaurants. Just south of The Cross is Bearsden’s railway station with its regular links into the West End and City Centre. Bearsden is also well served with bus routes.
