The "Bakehouse" is a locally admired historic, three bedroom detached cottage in the heart of the Eaglesham village, dating back to the 18th century. The cottage is graced with striking period features and stonework and further boasts original bakehouse ovens which have been carefully preserved within the original stone walls. This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a home which delivers an abundance of traditional charm yet affords a thoroughly modern living standard.

One of the many jewels in this home's crown are the impressive private garden grounds to the rear of the cottage. This expansive area includes a variety of rare horticultural trees throughout, with an idyllic stream trickling along the bottom of the garden; this truly special aspect must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The main cottage accommodation is set over two levels. A separate, detached cottage sits alongside the main residence which delivers the most wonderful development opportunity with endless possibilities.

The overall main accommodation comprises:

Ground Floor: Welcoming reception hallway allowing access to lower and upper accommodation. Leading off hallway, the dining Kitchen has floor and wall mounted handed made cabinetry, original stonework wall incorporating an original period bakehouse oven. The dual aspect windows afford views to front and rear. The hallway, leads on to an open foyer which gives access to a modern bathroom, complete with shower and a room to the rear of the property currently be used a bedroom (with views over garden). The generous sitting room is over 21 ft long, with feature fireplace, patio doors leading directly on to the garden patio area, completes with downstairs living accommodation.

Upper floor: Accessed via stair case, the two double bedrooms (one with feature fireplace) are bright and spacious, again with views over wonderful garden. There is also a modern family bathroom complete with white suite and bath.

The property also benefits from a very large 17ft garage (which is access via impressive stable type doors, or, alternatively, off internal hallway). The garage may lend further development opportunity (subject to appropriate planning) into an additional living area or bedroom.

Finally, within the cottage grounds, there sits the most wonderful development opportunity: A further charming detached period cottage. The cottage does require complete renovation, however the opportunity to develop this into a "granny flat", "home office" or separate annex is possible (subject to relevant planning).
