A very well extended and impressively upgraded modern detached villa, built by Wimpey in the 1960's and within the Castlehill district of Bearsden.
The property is traditionally built in brick cavity with the external walls very smartly finished in freshly painted white render. The property has been very impressively upgraded with replacement double glazed windows in white UPVC, which were mostly completed in 2011 but with the internal sliding doors from the vestibule to the hall more recently in 2018. It is only the external doors and rear patio doors that predate 2012 (the attic Velux window is timber framed). The property's rooflines (soffits, fascias and gutters) have been replaced in UPVC. There is a gas central heating system with an efficient Worcester Greenstar 37CDi combination boiler and the house is alarmed. The kitchen and its adjoining laundry/utility room have been very smartly refitted with modern units and integrated appliances, in 2016 both the main bathroom and the downstairs toilet were renewed in a very contemporary style with modern white suites and "on message" brick wall tiles. The balustrade, handrail and newel post to the staircase was renewed in late 2017 to a very high standard in oak and glass and, in the lounge, there is a handsome limestone fire surround with a, classically styled, polished cast-iron fireplace, inset with a Living Flame gas fire set onto a solid granite hearth.
All-in-all, this is a fine family home in really good order, its extension increasing the public space to two to three public rooms, along with a small study and the benefit of adding a laundry/utility room to the kitchen and the provision of a downstairs toilet to complement the three bedrooms upstairs and the main family bathroom.
In terms of accommodation, this can be summarised as follows:-
Entrance vestibule with UPVC front door with side screens and two side windows, from which sliding patio doors open to the reception hall. The hall has a small under stairs storage cupboard, two fifteen pane panelled glass doors to the lounge and kitchen. The lounge has a bay window to the front and a further window to the side and the aforementioned fireplace at its focal point. Double doors lead through to the dining room. The dining room has a connecting door to the kitchen and is set on an open-plan basis through to the family room, this features patio doors to the rear onto an elevated sun terrace and, from the family room, double doors lead into a very useful small home office/study with window. The kitchen has flush-fronted units in matt white with modern brushed nickel handles and a walnut style worksurface with a cream tiled upstand as a splashback. Integrated appliances include a four-burner gas hob in stainless-steell and a stainless-steel filter cooker hood above. There is a double oven and a concealed dishwasher. Ample space for a large fridge freezer. The laundry/utility room is similarly fitted to the kitchen and has plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier. Rear hall with back door and recess storage area in which the boiler is located. Toilet with contemporary two-piece suite by Vetra, with LED ceiling lighting, cupula skylight and a heated chrome towel rail.
The staircase, with its very smart oak and glass balustrade and handrail, ascends to the upper hall, which has a window to the side of the house and a hatch with a pull-down metal ladder to a floored and lined attic with eaves storage and a Velux window. The three bedrooms incorporate two doubles, including a bay windowed master to the front with a run of quality fitted sliding wardrobes, in addition to which is the original wardrobe. Bedroom two has a window to the rear, providing a distant view towards the Campsie Fells and it too has a wardrobe space. Bedroom three is a very good sized single with a smaller wardrobe provision set over the stairhead.
