  • Extensive floor area, 2336 sq ft (247 sq m)Built, post-war, upon the westerly garden of the neighbouring Victorian house, is this individually designed five bedroom (eight apartment) Detached House. It has a fantastically central location, literally at Bearsden Cross, with a wide, south-facing rear garden, which has been professionally landscaped. The more modest front façade belies the extent of accommodation within and the rear elevation, perhaps, better conveys that which is on offer. In referring to our floor plans, clients can see that the rooms are sizeable (2336 sq ft, 247 sq m) and provide eight main apartments including a dining/living room, set open plan to a large kitchen, to provide that all-important ‘heart-of-the-home’ family space. All rooms are generously proportioned, including the halls, and two of the five bedrooms feature ensuites, the principal bedroom’s being a wet room.The property was significantly renovated and remodelled ten years ago, the result of which is this contemporary modern home in this most established, and traditional, of Bearsden locations. The house is a stone’s throw from Bearsden Cross and, as such, at the very heart of the community with all its excellent amenities, shops, and restaurants on your doorstep. Bearsden’s railway station is 500m away on Station Road. School catchment is for Bearsden Primary (at The Cross) and for the high-performing (No.2 state secondary in Scotland) Bearsden Academy at Courthill. Bearsden is also home to the Bearsden Early Years Centre, St Nicholas’ Primary, and The High School of Glasgow Junior School (its senior school being just south of Bearsden at Anniesland). The house is orientated upon its wide plot so that the rear of the property is due-south facing. Here, the garden has been thoughtfully landscaped by a professional garden design team to create a truly lovely space with a large, stone flagged, sun terrace with integrated planting, along with a generous lawn, productive garden with raised planters (for veg/fruit) and a shed. It is enclosed by fencing and on the southerly boundary an established hedge. The front garden is very well screened from Thorn Road by a high hedge, and has a large gravel drive, with driveway gates and parking for several cars. To the east wall is an electric car charging point (by EO) and water tap beside the integral bike store (formerly a garage, now smaller due to the formation of the utility room).Overall, the specification of the house is modern contemporary with smart white sanitary ware in the two ensuite shower rooms, the main bathroom, and the guest WC. The kitchen is very smartly equipped and features striking modern units in grey and cream high gloss with contrasting solid worktops, including a large centre island with breakfast bar. The kitchen area has bi-fold doors to directly access the sun terrace and garden. Windows have been replaced with uPVC framed double glazed units finished in a cool anthracite grey to the exterior and white to the interior. The Velux windows upstairs are timber framed. Central heating is mains gas, powered by a Potterton Titanium 40 combination boiler. Set flush, many of the ceilings have downlighters with smooth plaster ceilings, which adds to the overall contemporary feel of the home, as do the very smart walnut internal doors. Flooring offers a mix of quality carpet, engineered oak, tile, and LVF/vinyl.Ground Floor
