The Tannoch district is a highly regarded area of Milngavie, home to some wonderful period properties and just north of the village centre. The local beauty spot of Tannoch Loch is its centrepiece and Montrose Gardens sits on its western shore.
No. 9 is a beautifully presented and appointed late Victorian Semi-Detached House on the westerly side of the gardens with a garden backing to Mugdock Road. The house has been extended twice – to the side and more recently (circa 2007/2008), to the rear creating a lovely flow of rooms, particularly to the back of the house where the living room runs seamlessly to a dining room, a brilliant garden room conservatory and to the kitchen – overall a great space and the heart to this sumptuous home.
Our clients have owned the house for some 16 years and during this time have upgraded the subjects considerably. In addition to the rear extension (dining room and garden room conservatory,) the kitchen and bathroom were replaced, windows double glazed (including those to the front with traditional sash and casement style units) and a utility room and WC created. Both a living flame gas fire (cassette style in the living room) and a wood burning stove (by Jotul, in the conservatory) were installed to augment the existing open fire (lounge). Very recently (February 2020) the roof was re-slated. The subjects are decorated throughout with great taste. The property has very good storage provision, including two separate loft spaces.
Outside, landscaping works have been undertaken to the garden (both to the front and to the rear). Overall, it is a home of quality and considerable style in a lovely, and highly convenient, situation.
Entrance Vestibule with storm doors; Reception Hall retaining the original doors and architraves, staircase, cornicing and picture rail; Lounge with five-frame box bay window and at the focal point, a handsome, post period, stone fireplace with real fire. Again, original cornice, ceiling rose and picture rail; Living Room – a more contemporary family room with the glass fronted cassette style living flame ‘driftwood’ gas fire (remote controlled); Dining Room with French doors to the rear garden and an electronically controlled Velux rooflight. Fitted bookcase along one wall; a superb Garden Room/Conservatory with double glazed glass roof, corner window configuration, another set of French doors to the rear garden and the luxury of the Jotul woodburning stove; Kitchen (another electric velux rooflight) – fitted with smart matt white units with Wenge hardwood worktops and black glass splashbacks. Sink by Blanco. Appliances, by Neff, include – five burner gas hob, oven, combination microwave oven, warming drawer, in-built dishwasher, and in-built fridge freezer; Study; Utility/Laundry room with WC compartment off.
A fine return flight staircase, retaining the original newel posts, balustrade and handrails ascends to the first floor. Off the half landing is a very smart, fully tiled, four piece contemporary bathroom with underfloor heating. It has WC, wash hand basin, bath and a corner shower enclosure with a powerful thermostatic shower. Chrome towel radiator. Vanity cabinet/mirror by Schneider; Upper Hall illuminated by two velux windows; three Bedrooms – two doubles (Bedroom 2 with a run of fitted sliding wardrobes by Sliderobes) and one single.
The front has a double width, with block paviours, driveway and side path. There is a shrubbery bed with Cherry Blossom and Japanese Acer. By the front door is an electric car charging point. The rear garden is west facing (a good orientation) and has a wide, stone slabbed, patio with a curving low level retaining wall to an area of grass. Beyond this are two display beds (terraced and defined by chunky wooden sleepers). Some nice planting including a fine Magnolia. Shed plus woodstore. Rear garden is enclosed by two original stone garden walls and a further timber garden fence.
Montrose Gardens is by Tannoch Loch and just south of the Mugdock and Craigmaddie Reservoirs (a great place for dog walking and jogging) and the expanse of Drumclog Moor. Along Mugdock Road is the Preparatory School for The Glasgow Academy, the catchment for the district being the highly regarded Milngavie Primary at the village centre. Secondary schooling is the high performing Douglas Academy.
Milngavie village centre (a charming pedestrianised centre) is under 1 mile and there is a broad range of quality retailers including independent stores and the High Street names of Marks & Spencer (Food Hall) and Tesco. A little further on is a large Waitrose and an Aldi at the West of Scotland Retail Park. There is a Railway Station with four trains an hour into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre.
A hard property to fault, both in terms of quality and location.
