Property Description

Offering an exquisite marriage of period charm and contemporary finishes, this extensively remodelled two bedroomed apartment is split over three levels and forms part of the delightfully characterful Robinsfield House, located in the hamlet of Bardowie. Whilst offering a convenient situation, nearby amenities (just 2 miles from Milngavie town centre) and superb road links, the immaculately kept garden grounds that surround the property provide a legitimately rural feel. An all too rare opportunity for the buyer looking to acquire something truly special.
Thoroughly Scottish in style with its notable crow-stepped gables, conical roofed stair turrets and rectangular tower in the N.E corner, Robinsfield was created in the mid 1890’s through the significant extension of a modest early 19th century stone house and retains a wealth of unique period detail. The former home of renowned Glasgow painter Robert Macaulay Stevenson, the building was subdivided into a collection of five generous apartments in the mid 1980’s.
Entry to the plot is given via a tarmac driveway (accessed from Balmore Road) which dramatically opens up to a parking courtyard with ample provision for residents and visitors. The expansive communal gardens, maintained entirely by the residents of Robinsfield, are truly stunning and must be seen to be appreciated. They are stocked with a variety of seasonal foliage and shrubbery.
The property itself has been significantly altered and refurbished by our clients to offer cutting edge finishes, kitchens and bathrooms, whilst great sympathy is given to the history and character of the building where family weddings have been hosted.
Access to the building, granted via a security entry system, is through an incredibly imposing and grand turreted entryway which leads to a carpeted communal hallway decorated with Mackintosh style panelling. A staircase leads to the first floor where the main entrance to apartment 5 can be found. The internal accommodation of the home extends to:-
Reception hallway, box room, lounge highlighted by skylights with feature living flame gas fireplace and step up to a dining area. There is a contemporary integrated kitchen finished with attractive white cabinetry, black worktops, black floor tiles with a central island/breakfast bar hosting a double grill/oven. In terms of further appliances there is a wine fridge, dishwasher, six burner gas hob, with a cavity provided for an American style fridge freezer.
There are a four steps down from the lounge leading to a landing with staircase and attractive feature windows. The very impressive and substantial master suite can be found on this level. This entirely luxurious area offers a dressing space, substantial bedroom and en-suite bathroom with walk in shower, w/c, wash hand basin, and bath with an integrated television and surrounding speakers.
Downstairs, there is a sizeable hall space providing ample room for a computer desk with a second, sizeable suite which also offers a tiled shower room en-suite with walk in shower along with a generous storage cupboard.
Outside, the garden grounds are truly magical. There are various, manicured areas of lawn bordered by the most beautiful seasonal shrubbery. The formal communal garden space to the rear of the plot is an area so spacious and impressive that private performances by Scottish Opera have been hosted in the past.
Beyond the border of the formal gardens is the most beautiful field, again decorated with a visually astounding array of foliage. This space, over which our clients have servitude rights, leads to the southerly shore of Bardowie Loch upon which residents of Robinsfield have boating rights. One could spend an afternoon taking in the unique beauty of the exterior of this special residence.
Apartment 5 comes with the further privilege of a powered garage and EV car charging point.
