Property Description

Full description


Surrounded by the rural scenery of Thorntonhall, you could be miles from anywhere. However, with the A727 and A726 just moments away, you’re perfectly placed for commuting to Glasgow in around twenty-five minutes via the M77 or heading off towards Ayrshire. And for a more scenic route, the A77 also connects with the city centre through Clarkston and Giffnock. The village station is only a few minutes’ walk, so you can easily hop on the hourly train to Glasgow, with an approximate journey time of twenty-five minutes, while Glasgow and East Kilbride are also linked by regular bus services on the A727

This striking, five/six bedroom detached, contemporary house, which was exceptionally constructed by Cala Homes (The Waverley) around 2012, redefines what modern living in Scotland is all about. In terms of location, layout, style and detail, ‘Balmoral House’ has unrivalled stature as the ex-showhouse and has a very distinctive character, offering sumptuous styling in one of the most exclusive addresses in the west of Scotland. Every corner exudes sophistication, inviting you to room after room for entertaining, playing or relaxing. All within an idyllic village setting offering rural surroundings and city convenience in equal measure. All around this stunning home, you will find creative architecture and an inspired layout over two levels, providing light filled, spacious luxury, which will suit a growing family, and is without doubt, one of the highest quality contemporary homes to be ever constructed in Scotland. It further benefits from a converted (triple) garage offering a cinema room on the lower level and a one bedroom apartment on the upper level.

Cala Homes used luxurious, high-quality fittings and finishes and the latest in high-tech features to create a house that is the last word in sophistication and refined taste. This home is of 21st Century design for people who appreciate what modern thinking can do to boost the quality of their life. Once inside this home, you will be able to reach out and touch quality and craftsmanship, no matter what room you are in.

The property is a beautiful, stylish and impressive detached residence, on a corner plot, within perfect landscaped gardens, set behind electric security gates. There are sun trap areas, which are suitable for garden entertaining, sun lounging and alfresco dining. A generous sized vestibule leads into a magnificent-sized, traditional hallway with a magnificent staircase crafted from solid oak to fully enhance this area, storage below, and oak veneered doors leading into the main and principal family accommodation. A generous-sized lounge, with feature fireplace, offers French doors giving access to the gardens. There is a formal dining room, offering ample entertaining space and has been designed with an accent on modern family living. Access from the hallway can be gained into the spacious living area, with French doors to gardens, which is cleverly linked to a stunning family sized kitchen/diner/family area, which is an obvious design highlight. This level also benefits from a separate utility/laundry room (off kitchen) and guest cloak room/WC (off the hallway). A study to the front aspect completes the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor offers thoughtfully planned accommodation with a stunning galleried landing and relaxation space. A real feature is the balcony, to the front aspect, offering views of the immediate area. The master bedroom is the last word in luxury with a dedicated dressing area, fitted wardrobes and a luxurious en-suite bathroom. There are four, further well-proportioned bedrooms, two with fully fitted en-suite shower rooms. Bedrooms 4 and 5 have sole usage of the contemporary family bathroom.

The detached triple garage has been converted by the current owners. The cinema room is located on the lower level and is decorated in contemporary tones, perfect for emphasising the sheer electric atmosphere of having your own home cinema. This is the perfect spot to chill out on a wet Sunday afternoon and to settle down with the latest movie or sporting fixture and is bound to be a popular spot with all members of the family. The upper level consists of an independent, one bedroom apartment that is divided into recreation space, bedroom and en-suite shower-room. This is the perfect zone for a teenager or elderly relative requiring a level of independence.
