Property Description

The early 20th century villas on Boclair Road are some of Bearsden’s most impressive homes. Beechwood (No.15) is undoubtedly one of these, a handsome Detached House, of Arts and Crafts architectural influences, situated on the preferred northern side of the road and set upon a fine garden of some ½ acre.
The house is generous in scale extending to some 4000 square feet including an impressive extension (2014) that seamlessly blends with the architectural lines of the original house. In all, Beechwood is a six-bedroom home with five reception rooms supported by two shower rooms, bathroom, and a WC. It is a home suited for a generation of family living.

  • 5 double Bedrooms
  • Home Gym (Bedroom 6)
  • 5 Public Rooms
  • Study
  • Kitchen with Aga
  • 2 Shower Rooms
  • Family Bathroom
  • WC
  • Utility Room
  • Front Entrance Porch
  • Main Entranceway and Hall
  • Large Double Garage (25’8” x 20’2”) with electric door The subjects fall, principally, over two floors with Bedroom 5, and an adjacent study area, on the 2nd floor, developed from former attic space, and the home gym (Bedroom 6) in the extension set above the garage. With its own ensuite shower room this would make a perfect teenager suite.The house was reroofed (2013) with, in keeping, red rosemary tile and many windows have been renewed with quality reproduction style double glazed windows. The gas central heating system has been upgraded and features a high efficiency Vaillant ecoTECplus regular boiler with a 295-litre unvented hot water cylinder providing plenty of water and pressure to the showers.The house sits centrally upon its level plot where it enjoys a high degree of privacy, particularly at the rear where the aspect is rather lovely and secluded and on the line of Bearsden’s historic Roman Antonine wall (AD 142) ensuring that this will never change. The rear garden is a great space for children and all enclosed. Level, it has a lawned formal garden with a hexagonal shaped central patio, with small pond, and a further side patio, also hexagonal shaped, both connected via pathway. In the corner is a greenhouse. There is a large, screened area to the rear of the garage again mainly lying to grass where there are raised vegetable beds and against the rear wall of the plot a garden shed. The front garden is screened from the road by a garden wall and a bank of laurels, with a broad grass verge to the pavement and driveway gate post, with gate, opening to a generous gravel drive and parking area for several cars.

Home Gym/Bedroom 6
• Gym (Bedroom 6) - this is reached from the ground floor via a stair off the entrance hallway. Initially to a landing that has three windows overlooking the rear garden. Used as a home gym it has a full mirrored wall, three windows to the front, and two Velux windows to the rear.

• Ensuite Shower Room - contemporary in style the white suite and with an oversized shower enclosure with, again, a thermostatic shower with both deluge and hand showerheads. Velux window.

The Boclair area is much admired and the homes on Boclair Road amongst Bearsden’s best. Situated less than a mile east of Bearsden Cross, and the excellent amenities and shops to be found there, it is also nearby Hillfoot railway station. Lying to the northwest is a protective woodland corridor giving Beechwood and the other homes on the northern side of Boclair Road a real sense of detachment and privacy.
