A fine example of its kind, this red sandstone semi-detached villa by John Macdonald (1930's) offers spacious and smartly presented accommodation and is well positioned in the heart of Bearsden's enduringly popular Burnbrae district.
The property has been significantly upgraded and modernised over the years but, significantly, retains the character of its traditional origins. Inspection will reveal the generous proportion of the room sizes, with the extension to the rear adding a utility area/porch, laundry store and ground floor toilet. Where the property has been truly transformed is the kitchen area, which is now entirely open plan to the original dining room.
The property is accessed via an entrance vestibule, regarding the internal accommodation, the subjects comprise:-
Reception hallway, bay windowed lounge, open plan kitchen/dining area, utility, w/c.
Three bedrooms (two sizeable doubles and a further single), attractively tiled family bathroom.
Externally, the property has benefitted from significant investment, with a rather nice area of side garden featuring a southerly facing sundeck and a section of grass, with a further grassed section to be found to the rear of the home.
The property is set at the foot of Mosshead Road facing onto Milngavie Road with a slightly elevated position to provide an improved aspect. The corner garden offers, to the front, a low-level garden wall following the curve of the plot, a central gate with pathway to the front door which leads around the side of the house via a timber garden gate to the side and rear garden. At the front there's a grass section, a large shrubbery bed, two trees including a silver birch and to the side of the plot, to the neighbour, a mature privet hedge. The side and rear garden has been invested upon by our client with landscaping to provide a rather nice area with the side garden having a southerly-facing sundeck and a section of grass and to the back of the property a further grassed area. The whole back garden is fenced in to screen it from Mosshead Road and in addition to the sundeck timber decking planks have been cleverly used as a design feature to face retaining
walls for the shrubbery banks along the side of the plot. The property is within the Burnbrae district of Bearsden and falls within the catchment for the highly regarded Mosshead Primary school as well as Bearden Academy. Nearby and providing a lovely area to walk the dog, is Kilmardinny Loch and its surrounding woodland. On Milngavie Road is the private Sports Direct Health Club and just across the road from the property access to the Allander Sports Centre. Burnbrae has a local store, also on Mosshead Road, much-loved by the residents' of the area (Joe's). Just along Milngavie Road, at Burnbrae roundabout, is Waitrose and roughly equidistant from the property is Milngavie Village centre which has a good selection of independent shops and multiples at its pedestrianised centre and also Bearsden Cross which is just a little over one mile away. Transportation is provided by regular bus services on Milngavie Road and for those taking the train to the city centre or West End, train stations can be found at Milngavie and at Hillfoot.
All in all, an attractive, traditionally-styled, home from the 1930s with an extremely current specification and decorative theme.
From Rettie's office on Milngavie Road, proceed northbound along the A81 for approximately 0.7 miles, taking an eventual left turn onto Mosshead Road where number 2 can be found immediately on the righthandside.
