A former butler's pantry has painted original furniture, and adjacent is a larder with shelving to full height.

An inner rear hall has a glass atrium and leads via a door to the rear gardens as well as to a shower room and bedrooms 5 & 6. This area could offer scope for self-contained granny/teenager or au pair accommodation.
A broad period staircase leads to the first floor landing and to four fine principal bedrooms, each featuring en suite facilities which are all bespoke and individual.
The Grange is an historic and much admired period house of the district. It was originally built in 1870 and remarkably has been in the same family ownership since 1882; it has never before been made available on the open market making this a rare opportunity indeed to acquire one of the most distinctive and distinguished homes in Busby. The Grange has been in the current ownership since 2006, during which time the house has undergone a thorough and total programme of renovation, modernisation and improvement.
The Grange is prominently situated amid mature and well-tended formal gardens in the popular and highly convenient south side of Glasgow settlement of Busby.
Busby is about 1 mile from Clarkston Toll and about 3.5 miles from East Kilbride. Glasgow City Centre is about 9 miles to the north and yet the villages of Busby, Carmunnock and Thorntonhall are fringed by open countryside.
Busby has a reputable local primary school and the south side of Glasgow district has an excellent range of secondary schools with an enviable reputation in both the state and private sectors.
Clarkston has a fine range of local shops and services which easily cater for everyday needs and requirements and can easily be described as a thriving local community. East Kilbride (3.5 miles) has a fuller range of shops and services at its centre with major supermarkets and high street multiples. Eaglesham and Strathaven are nearby and as well as being very pretty towns offer more intimate boutiques and rural village selection of shops and facilities.
Glasgow city also provides a full and excellent range of cultural, further and higher educational and professional facilities normally associated with a major international centre.
For outdoor enthusiasts this area provides a wealth of activities. As with many parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and The Grange is no exception with local golf courses in the city suburbs as well as at Strathaven and East Kilbride, while the championship courses at Turnberry and Troon and many other links courses in Ayrshire are within easy travelling distance. There are a number of private and local authority leisure facilities in Clarkston and East Kilbride.
The Grange is very well located for communication links, being a short distance from both the M77 to the west and the M74 to the east therefore giving quick access to Glasgow and the rest of Central Scotland to the north and east as well as Glasgow and Prestwick International Airports to the west. Thorntonhall, East Kilbride, Busby and Clarkston also have main line rail links.
Outbuildings include three gardens sheds used as workshop, equipment and freezer stores respectively, two open fronted lean to log stores, tractor shed, aviary, timber constructed fitness room with BBQ canopy, potting shed, greenhouse, hot tub.
The gardens are mature, broadly level and well defined with a formal entrance off Carmunnock Road via iron gates to blonde gravel driveway to sweep at front of house. A second driveway is from the lane at the side and is via sliding remote controlled gate to block pavior drive and hard standing.
A near 100 sq m patio is at the rear and is flanked by a mature, easily tended lawn which flanks the house and leads to the sheds and workshops. The greenhouse and vegetable garden, with raised beds and planters, are fenced and secure from children and pets. The gardens feature a number of mature trees which in turn provide, shelter amenity and interest.
