A truly special and seldom available semi-rural retreat, this beautifully finished three bedroomed duplex apartment forms part of a traditional stone mansion house set upon approximately nine acres of established garden grounds with a dramatic setting to the foot of the Campsie Fells. Complete with a private garage, resident’s/visitor parking, and a further external storage space.
Located to the Easterly fringes of Strathblane Village, Ballagan House offers a high leisure lifestyle, with a private tennis court for residents, the picturesque Ballagan stream cutting through its vast acreage and direct access from the garden grounds to the beautiful Campsie Fells which offer fantastic hill walks for outdoor enthusiasts.
One of five separate conversions, No.3 offers a versatile five apartment arrangement set across a particularly generous footprint of approx. 1,460 sq.ft. Positioned to the Westerly side of the main building, portions of the property form part of the tower of the original dwelling, a feature which greatly contributes to the overall period flair and unique nature of this home. The property is accessed via a security-controlled entry system which leads to an entrance vestibule with beautiful ‘Terrazzo’ styled tiling which, in turn, provides a doorway to a carpeted reception hallway. The internal accommodation extends to:-
Reception hallway with under stair storage cupboard and cloakroom w/c, bright and spacious lounge/dining area laid to hardwood flooring and featuring multi aspect window formations and Anta log burning stove as centre-point (along with supplementary electric heaters), well-appointed kitchen finished in neutral shaker style cabinetry and contrast butcher-block worktops (with inset Belfast sink). A curved, carpeted staircase leads to the upper level, where three bedrooms are to be found, including the sumptuous Master (flooring recently replaced), where a charming home office/study/dressing room (forming part of the tower) can be found just off. The accommodation of the first floor is completed via beautifully tiled family bathroom featuring a stand-alone roll-top bath and walk in shower enclosure.
Externally, the garden grounds upon which the property is set are well established and brilliantly kept by the residents. Apartment three comes complete with its own garage/lock up (forming part of a block) along with a coal shed for additional storage. Over the course of Covid/Lockdown, residents of the house pieced together and created an additional garden/shrubbery/seating area from a previously disregarded section of land – one really is spoilt for choice given the outdoor spaces associated with Ballagan House.

Situation

Strathblane, and its immediate neighbour Blanefield, is a highly regarded, semi-rural community located just north of Milngavie suburb and proudly set at the southerly foothills of the Campsie Fells, a simply dramatic backdrop to the villages. With a very strong sense of local community, the villages are serviced by some local shops, including a couple of mini markets, an excellent delicatessen, Post Office, library and chemist. There is a bowling and tennis club, two hotels and a local pub. There is a well-regarded village primary school, with secondary provision at the excellent Balfron High, to which a bus service is laid on. For those seeking private education, there is The Glasgow Academy Preparatory School in Milngavie and The High School of Glasgow Junior School in Bearsden, with both having their Senior School in Glasgow West End. For a broader range of shops, Milngavie, which is about a ten-minute drive away, has a pedenstrianised centre with a variety of independents but also multiple retailers of Tesco, Boots, Marks & Spencer’s (food hall) and Waitrose stores. Milngavie has a railway station with four trains an hour into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre, with one of the services continuing onto Edinburgh, Waverley.
