Built for his family by Bearsden's most significant builder, John Russell, this unique detached house (1933) is one of the area's most recognised and admired homes. Located within Old Bearsden's conservation district, the house enjoys a fantastically convenient location, just to the north of The Cross. All the superb shops and facilities to be found there are but minutes away and contributes to a real sense of being at the very heart of this acclaimed suburb.
Our client, who acquired the house in 2012, has since renovated and reconfigured the property comprehensively, at considerable expense, to create one of the most impressively finished and equipped of homes. The attention to detail and the quality of specification is one rarely seen.
Whilst the house, from the front façade, may convey a fair sized bungalow, it is in fact a significantly scaled villa of some 2,150 sq. ft. (gross internal) with four bedrooms, two shower rooms (one en-suite), bathroom and guest toilet, with public spaces including formal lounge, separate dining room and then the heart of the house – a fantastic open-plan living room and kitchen, the kitchen superbly finished and equipped with a bespoke, handmade, oak kitchen with granite worktops/upstands and high quality appliances. A good-sized utility room, similarly fitted, completes this very special home.
The refurbishment of the house included rewiring, replumbing and central heating; great use of low voltage and strip LED lighting; re-plastering, along with the fitting of plaster cornicing; renewal of windows with high performance UPVC framed double glazed units; central heating features a Worcester Greenstar 40CDi classic boiler with a high capacity hot water cylinder; the cosy luxury of underfloor heating (electric) in the kitchen, bathroom and en-suite shower room; complete redecoration; gorgeous oak doors, frames and skirtings to all rooms; oak staircase; flooring includes solid oak in all rooms/halls with tiling in the kitchen, utility room, bathroom and two shower rooms, the top section of the stair is carpeted; in the living room an 8kW multifuel stove by Clearview has been installed; an alarm has been fitted; outside, landscaping has been carried out to the garden; the large detached double garage (22'8" x 20'10", 6.19m x 6.36m) has been upgraded and includes two remote controlled garage doors. Simply put, little has been untouched in this very special Bearsden home.
