Property Description

Full description

This is an impressive detached family home in excellent decorative condition with an impressive specification and a superb location close by Douglas Academy, within Mains Estate. The property was built originally in the 1970’s by John Lawrence (circa. 1974) but has been twice extended since – in 1983 the downstairs bathroom was made much bigger and, far more significantly, in 1989 the side of the house was extended to add a very generous sitting room (28’6” x 11’9”, 8.68m x 3.57m) and above this, on the first floor, a new master suite with bedroom and an en-suite bathroom. In total, the property now extends to approximately 1,800 sq. ft. over its six main apartments - the layout of which can be utilised as three or four bedrooms, as required.

The property, as clearly shown from the photographs herein, is in excellent condition both externally where the house was repainted only last year (2018) and internally where the rooms have all been redecorated over the last three year period. It has a quality specification with a super modern kitchen (about eight years old) with a range of Italian designed units by Habitat in white high gloss and featuring chunky solid worktops, which really does create a really contemporary feel to the kitchen, and with a good range of integrated appliances – halogen hob, double oven, combination mircrowave/oven/steamer, dishwasher, washing machine and, also included, the black Smeg fridge (with small freezer compartment). Additionally, there is a very high standard of sanitary ware in both bathrooms – the ground floor bathroom has a four piece suite that includes a large 1,450mm glass shower enclosure in which there is a powerful thermostatic shower unit, by Matki, with both a fixed raindance showerhead and a further handheld showerhead. There is a Villeroy & Boch w.c. and w.h.b. and the luxury of a Jacuzzi bath. Upstairs, the bathroom en-suite to the master bedroom also has a Villeroy & Boch w.c. and w.h.b. and, again, the luxury of a spa bath. The house is double glazed with UPVC units and there is a gas central heating system operating through a Baxi system boiler with hot water tank. Outside, at the back of the garden, quietly reached via an access road (Ardlui Gardens), is a detached double garage (power and light installed).

Referring to the floorplan, clients will see that the layout includes a fabulous sized sitting room, as well as a formal lounge. There is then a formal dining room, if required, but which would make, as was originally designed in the original house, a fine double sized fourth bedroom. Specifically, in terms of accommodation, it provides the following:--

Ground floor

An attractive entrance vestibule leading through, in turn, to the hall with staircase and coats storage cupboard; generous lounge with a reproduction Adams style fireplace with marble tile inlay and hearth and with a decorative theme including traditional plaster relief panels on the walls; the sitting room is an outstanding space with windows to the front and patio doors opening onto a sunny, west facing, sun terrace and rear garden, with, again, at the focal point of this room, a reproduction Adams style fireplace, this time with a granite inlay and hearth; formal dining room or double sized fourth bedroom; breakfasting sized kitchen with the white high gloss units and the aforementioned integrated appliances; four piece bathroom with its quality suite and a super shower enclosure.

First floor

Hallway with storage; the master bedroom is a generous space with Velux windows both to front and rear and a deep fitted wardrobe; en-suite is a bathroom, accessed via double; two further double bedrooms both with two fitted wardrobes and with bedroom two having an additional storage cupboard in which the boiler is located.



Decoratively, the house is immaculate and, in terms of flooring, there is solid oak in the entrance vestibule and hall, self-coloured carpets in the lounge, dining room, sitting room, upper hall and master bedroom, laminate in bedrooms two and three and tiling in the kitchen, bathroom and en-suite.

Gardens

Our clients, who have owned the property for some four decades now, have clearly loved their home and have maintained and invested consistently in it. The gardens are a particularly good example of this as some three years ago when the gardens were re-landscaped and stocked with a lovely landscaped front garden with an attractively shaped lawn bounded by beautiful shrubberies and a number of specimen plants. There is a very smart stone slabbed pathway in two tones of grey leading from Falloch Road to the front door and, indeed, around the side of the house, continuing in the same theme to become a very large sun patio/terrace right across the back of the property. The rear garden is enclosed and westly facing and really is a suntrap, particularly in its sheltered patio/terrace from which steps lead up to a lawn and a central pathway leading to a rear perimeter gate, accessing onto Ardlui Gardens. The rear garden is enclosed by fence, painted walls and a mature beech hedge. There is an external water tap and easy access to the house’s detached double garage.

Situation

The prime draw for Mains Estate is the nearby Douglas Academy – one of Scotland’s top state schools with its renowned music school and its excellent modern premises. The nearest primary school is at Clober and nearby is an expansive park with children’s playground and, not far away, Clober Golf Course and, beyond this, a walkers’ wonderland through the hectares of Allander Park, Dumclog Moor and Mugdock Country Park.

Milngavie Village Centre is about one and a half miles away where its pedestrianised heart has a number of quality retailers, along with the high street names of Marks & Spencer’s (foodhall), Boots and Tesco. A little further on, at The West of Scotland Rugby Club, is a large Waitrose. Milngavie has a railway station with four trains an hour into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre.
