Property Description

A beautifully decorated and very impressively equipped two-bedroom, Ground Floor, Flat in the Heatherdene development and with, arguably, one of the best positions set at the top northwest corner, with an outlook westwards over an expanse of gardens.

  • 2 double Bedrooms
  • Lounge with double aspect
  • Very smart Kitchen (2019)
  • Refitted modern Shower Room
  • Renewed uPVC double glazed windows
  • New (2024) electric heating with Creda digitally controlled radiators

Heatherdene was built in 1986 as a “retirement development” targeted for those aged 60 years and over. Built by Alfred McAlpine Homes it is set in the former grounds of Bearsden's landmark building, Schaw House. It is a quality low-rise development of only some 51 apartments with No.53 having one of the very best positions with both the lounge and kitchen and a delightful westerly across the gardens of Schaw House with the two bedrooms looking towards the striking Gothic facade of Schaw House itself.

The ground floor position should particularly appeal to those clients downsizing for their retirement. It really is one of the very best of its kind with its wonderful setting and for its convenience to access Bearsden Cross, the heart of the town (only some 0.5 mile). It is also one of the best presented flats we have seen at Heatherdene with its tasteful décor, impressively renewed kitchen (2019), the refitted modern shower room, the renewed double glazed windows, and the brand new (2024) electric heating system. The hot water system has also been upgraded and features a far more efficient, mains pressure, 90 litre hot water cylinder.

Truly, this is a very lovely flat.


  • Entrance - this is only for the use of four flats and is secured by a door entry phone system.
  • Hall - has two good sized hall cupboards, both shelved.
  • Lounge - this enjoys windows to two sides - south and, principally, to the west where two windows offer a really lovely outlook over the maintained grounds of Schaw House.
  • Kitchen - this was renewed in 2019 and features a very smart range of matte white units with matching marble style worktops and wall panels. Under unit lights, beneath the high level cabinets, cast a lovely tone of an evening. Blanco 1½ bowl stainless steel sink inset. Appliances include - halogen hob, eye-level microwave, oven and, built in, a dishwasher, washing machine, and fridge-freezer.
  • Bedroom 1 - fine size double bedroom. Two windows to the rear (north). Mirror fronted fitted wardrobe.
  • Bedroom 2 - another double room. Two-frame window to the rear. Mirror fronted fitted wardrobe.
  • Shower Room - originally this would have been a bathroom but refitted as a smart modern shower room with a large shower enclosure in which there is a Mira Jump electric shower. Tiling to full height in the shower enclosure and to half height on other walls. Chrome towel radiator.


On site is a manager who works mornings, Monday to Friday, to ensure the smooth running of Heatherdene for the residents. There is a communal residents lounge, with kitchen, that is used for events and functions and a guest suite (bedroom and shower room) for overnight stays (must be pre booked). The extensive gardens are immaculately kept and include both residents and visitor car parks. The property management company is Hacking and Paterson of Glasgow to which fees are approximately £400 per quarter.
