2 bedroom detached house for sale

Craigmillar Avenue, Milngavie

Sold STC £289,000

Property Description

Full description

The Firs Cottage, originally the gardener’s cottage for the mansion house across the road, is a charming two bedroomed home, built, at some point, just after 1904 and located within Milngavie’s prized address of “upper” Craigmillar Avenue - a private road and home to some of Milngavie’s finest homes.

The property is dated in terms of specification, albeit there is a modern gas central heating boiler (2008), offering, therefore, great scope for any purchaser to upgrade and invest, as desired. It will appeal to couples and downsizers but also, subject to planning consent, to maybe families who could see potential in developing/extending the house. It sits amidst a surprisingly large garden, which is far broader than it is deep, with the property situated at the southerly end of the plot.

Hall with cloaks area, lounge with double aspect, two bedrooms, good-sized kitchen, side porch, bathroom with white suite. Large undeveloped attic area. Timber framed windows with externally affixed secondary glazed units (except garage window). Good-sized garage – outside of which is an extensive area of hardstanding and driveway.

Garden is largely hard landscaped with winding stone pathways and stone retaining walls but it is particularly well stocked with specimen trees, plants and shrubs, albeit the garden will require maintenance and investment.
