5 bedroom detached house for sale

Balgrochan House, Campsie Road, Torrance, Glasgow

Sold STC £459,000

Property Description

Full description

Balgrochan House, reputedly, dates, in part, to the seventeenth century and its origins as a single-storey mill house. We understand that it was altered and developed some two hundred years ago to create the "Georgian house" now seen - a fine period home offering five bedrooms, including the facility of a self-contained granny or teenagers wing/annex with an overall floor area of some 3,300 sq. ft. or thereby. It is perhaps one of Torrance's most recognised and admired properties, with its handsome symmetrical façade belying, perhaps, the extent of accommodation on offer.

A fine family home, its specification includes gas central heating and replacement double glazed windows in PVCU.

Ground floor:
Hall, sitting room, dining room, study, dining kitchen, rear vestibule, rear hallway, off which is a utility room and toilet.

Granny/teenagers wing:
Lounge/dining room with exposed stone wall, open-plan kitchen, double bedroom, en-suite "wet zone" shower room. Garden store.

First floor:
Lounge with period marble fireplace, two double bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a run of fitted wardrobes, four-piece family bathroom including shower enclosure.

Second floor:
Two double bedrooms with dormer windows, three-piece shower room.

Outside:
Garden grounds to front, side and rear where there is a courtyard style garden, driveway down the side of the house, with additional access lane/track over which a right of access is provided to the properties to the rear of Balgrochan House (Upper Mill House and Lower Mill House)

Torrance has a strong sense of local community with a terrific local primary school, with secondary provision at Boclair Academy in Bearsden. Some local shops cater for day-to-day requirements, including a general store, with more major facilities to be found in the neighbouring towns of Kirkintilloch, Bishopbriggs and Bearsden/Milngavie. Lovely open countryside surrounding the village, providing miles of walks.
