Property Description

Early post-war Detached House, by John Russell, in a desirable Milngavie location and set upon a wonderful garden of some ¼ acre backing directly, and southerly, onto the fairways of Clober Golf Course.

The original 6 apartment lay-out has been extended to make the main lounge larger and, on a lower, basement, level to create two basement/store rooms and to add a rather cosy “garden room” with a wide window overlooking the garden and golf course, and with French doors to a sun patio.

John Russell built some of Milngavie’s, and Bearsden’s, most admired family homes and this Argyll model, a rather pretty and somewhat cottage style, Detached House is one of his most identifiable styles. A six apartment (3 public rooms, 3 bedrooms - or 2 and 4) home it has been extended to make a far larger main lounge, to take full advantage of the view across the rear garden to the fairways of the golf course, and at garden level to make a lovely garden room and a very usable basement area including two defined rooms/stores (see floor plan).

Set in a small cul-de-sac of only eight houses it has a wonderful garden and that wonderful aspect, southwards, to the golf course. It is all double glazed (uPVC) and has a gas central heating system with a modern Worcester Greenstar 32 CDi compact ErP condensing combination boiler. External walls are white painted render set under a pitched and tiled roof. The rear extension also has a pitched roof. The two dormers are flat.

Whilst very well maintained it is fair to state that general spec and decor is of an older vintage (see photographs) albeit the shower room has been recently renewed. Great opportunity, therefore, for a purchaser to stamp their own mark upon the house and a wonderful opportunity to acquire a house in this admired neighbourhood and particularly one with such an amazing garden and outlook.

Ground Floor

Entrance vestibule, reception hall, large lounge with lots of windows and a brilliant outlook, living room, dining room (or bedroom 4), kitchen, shower room.

First Floor

Bedroom 1 with a suite of fitted furniture, bedroom 2 with a view to the golf course, bedroom 3 (single, used as a home office), bathroom.

Garden Level

A staircase descends to a lower floor where an initial space opens to two storerooms (one used as a games room). Garden room with wide window overlooking the garden and course and with a set of French doors to a sheltered sun patio.


At the end of the wide drive is an attached single garage with remote controlled Hormann garage door. Most of the garden lies to the rear of the house with the front garden having two lawns and planted borders. A path to the west side of the property leads to the sizeable rear garden with its extensive lawn, planting, patio with small pond beside, with boundaries defined by hedges, fence, and to the bottom of the garden, backing onto the golf course, a stone wall.


The property lies to the north of Clober Golf Course and is nearby Allander Park through which there are wonderful walks taking you to Drumclog Moor and further on to the expanses of Mugdock Country Park. The village centre is an easy walk of less than one mile and here its pedestrianised precinct has an excellent cross-section of shops and amenities. School catchment is for Milngavie Primary and the high-performing Douglas Academy. Milngavie also has an Early Years Learning Centre. Its railway station at the easterly end of the precinct provides regular services to Glasgow’s West End and City Centre.
