Enjoying a prime position on Kessington Drive and set upon a remarkably sizeable, level garden plot, this detached double bay fronted pre-war bungalow by Southern Building Company offers truly boundless potential to any incoming purchaser. At current, the property is formed across five principal apartments, with an original pull-down ladder providing access to the loft space, an area ripe for conversion into additional apartments (subject to necessary warrants and permissions). Whilst significant attention should be afforded to the development potential that both the home and plot have to offer, one should note the abundance of immaculately kept period detail found throughout the home, including original stained-glass work and cabinetry. The property comes complete with off-street driveway parking along with a sizeable detached garage with timber doors.
Whilst this is a home that will require a programme of modernisation, we anticipate interest from a wide audience comprising both those that will utilise and work with the current footprint, along with parties who wish to augment and alter. Initial access to the property is provided by an imposing storm door entryway which, in turn, leads to an entrance vestibule. Regarding the accommodation in full, the subjects comprise:-
Welcoming reception hallway with storage off, bay windowed lounge with feature fireplace and original stained-glass cabinetry, bay windowed sitting/dining room again with feature fireplace, bathroom, kitchen with utility space and rear porch area, and three bedrooms (two sizeable doubles and a further single). An original pull-down ladder offers access to the floored and lined attic space, an area which offers both a fantastic ceiling height and plentiful eaves storage space.
Externally, the size of plot upon which the property sits cannot be understated. The length of the incredibly private rear garden, from rear boundary hedge to farthermost projection of the house itself measures off at just shy of 90' in length. The gardens from front to back are well manicured, with a chipped and slabbed driveway and attached garage adding further appeal.
Kessington Drive is ideally located with wide access to the surrounding amenities that are available within Bearsden and Milngavie, with Bearsden Cross offering a variety of boutiques and shops and a Marks and Spencer's foodhall. More readily available are the shops along Milngavie Road, with a Sainsbury's convenience store at the traffic lights and the shops along Kessington parade, the Asda supermarket and at those at Hillfoot station. Schooling is available in the area at both primary and secondary level and is within the catchment for the well-respected Boclair Academy. For those who are commuting, the area is well provided for by the national road network system, with both Switchback Road and Maryhill Road providing convenient access into Glasgow city centre by car. For those wishing to use public transport, there are railway stations at Bearsden, Milngavie and Hillfoot offering regular services to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Recreational pursuits within Bearsden and Milngavie are varied, with a variety of sports clubs and leisure centres nearby, which include the Allander Sports Centre and the Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Gym on Strathblane Road. Mugdock Country Park, located in Milngavie, offers a variety of paths from which to explore, either on foot or cycle.
From our office at Hillfoot, proceed southbound on Milngavie Road (A81), passing, firstly, Boclair House Hotel on the lefthandside and then Asda, and continue to the traffic lights at Kessington Hall (opposite the Sainsbury's convenience store). Turn left at these traffic lights onto Kessington Road and then sharp left onto Kessington Drive and follow this as it bends to the right. Continue up Kessington Drive where No. 23 can be found on the lefthandside.
