Property Description

Built by John Lawrence, this early post war “Dormer” Bungalow is a fantastic property, located in the Switchback district of Bearsden.

This Detached House is a sizeable six apartment home that can be used as three or four bedrooms as required. It comes with two shower rooms, one of which is ensuite, and kitchen with quality maple units and granite surfaces. Set upon a fine sized, and well-designed/planted, garden it has a very smart and recently laid (2022) block-paved driveway that leads to a detached double garage. As our photographs will show the house is in very good order and boasts modern uPVC double glazed windows (many done as recently as 2021) and a gas central heating system with an Ideal Mexico regular boiler located in a rather useful cellar room).

The layout of rooms allows for varied use and indeed over the years of ownership our clients have done so as family requirements change. A key feature of the house is the sizeable lounge on the first floor with it's large, and wide, front dormer windows and further rear facing Velux that makes for a hugely bright space.

First Floor

  • From the reception hall a return flight staircase ascends to a first-floor landing.
  • Lounge - as detailed earlier this is a sizeable room with double aspect - the very wide 4-frame dormer window to the front and a large Velux window to the rear. A stained lighted window panel is a nice design feature and provides borrowed light to the stairwell. There is a wood burning stove set atop a stone and slate hearth. Off the lounge is a large store cupboard with power and light which was previously used as a study. If desired, potential here to make this room a sizeable main bedroom suite with ensuite (subject to warrants).
  • Bedroom 3 - another double bedroom also with a wide dormer window providing a rather pleasant outlook. Fitted cupboard space plus small door to eaves storage. Has benefit of an ensuite.

Outside there is a lovely garden. The front, protected by a low-level garden wall, has a shaped lawn bordered by nicely planted beds. The new, wide, block-paved drive extends to the South side of the house and provides parking for a number of cars. The drive extends as a pathway to the front door.
The rear garden is gated and enclosed. There is a central lawn flanked by three shrub beds and a sunny corner patio with small summer house. To the rear of the garage is a timber garden shed. The sun deck is set above the garden and is he lovely spot for alfresco drinks and dining and from which stairs lead down to the garden. Below the deck is a door to the very useful, and dry, cellar room which has a light and where the boiler is.

The double garage is detached and has power and light and a renewed (2021) double glazed side window. The garage door has an electric door mechanism, but it is not contemporary and was not tested (door can open manually).


The house is within the Switchback district of Bearsden - highly desirable with school catchment at Westerton Primary and the new premises of Boclair Academy. At Westerton is a railway station with regular services into Glasgow's West End and to the City Centre. Switchback is to the south westerly fringe of Bearsden and therefore provides ready and easy road connections through Anniesland to the West End and city. Beyond the houses opposite is the protected woodland corridor of the Cairnhill Woods.

Bearsden Cross, the heart of the town, is a little over one mile to the north and here you will find an excellent selection of quality independent retailers along with the Marks and Spencers food hall, restaurants, and cafes. On Milngavie Road is a large Asda and a little further north at Milngavie a Waitrose and an Aldi. Recently opened is the superb new facilities of Bearsden's Allander Sport Centre.
