Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fantastic detached family home in an exclusive setting overlooking Bardowie Loch.

Location

Lochside is situated on the edge of Bardowie Loch and forms part of an exclusive courtyard development built circa 1992 when the adjacent Bardowie Castle was restored. There are only seven houses on the north side of the loch, making this an extremely sought after address.

The small hamlet of Bardowie is a conservation village with the castle, which dates from 1566, and loch, the main attractions. The loch has a dinghy sailing club, which forms part of the Clyde Cruising Club. Milngavie, Bearsden and Glasgow are all within easy reach.

Milngavie is a thriving town which provides an excellent range of professional services, schools and shops including Marks & Spencer and Waitrose. Secondary education is on hand at Douglas Academy, while the Glasgow Academy Junior school (P1-P4) is also found in Milngavie. Bearsden offers an excellent range of restaurants, coffee shops, a dentist, doctor’s surgery, library and post office.

There is a commuter railway station from Milngavie to Glasgow Queen Street with trains running every 15 minutes and taking just 23 minutes as well as direct services to Edinburgh Waverley. All the universities, colleges and recreational and cultural facilities of the city are therefore within easy reach.

Glasgow city centre and the vibrant West End are only 6 miles to the west, while Glasgow International Airport is just 13 miles away. The property is also well positioned for driving to Stirling and Edinburgh, which can both be reached via the A803 and M80 without going through Glasgow's city centre.

Description

Lochside is a superb detached family home situated in an exclusive courtyard development on the edge of Bardowie Loch. The property was built circa 1992 and offers spacious accommodation over two floors, with almost 3,400 sq ft of living space, ideal for entertaining and everyday family living.

A welcoming reception hall leads to the main living accommodation on the ground floor. Double doors open into the drawing room, which has a dual aspect to both the front and rear, and a feature fireplace. Double doors from the opposite side of the hall open into the dining room, with downstairs WC off, which in turn leads to the main family room. The family room consists of a modern fitted U-shaped kitchen with integrated appliances, dining area and spacious sitting area, making this a perfect space for families. There is a generous utility room located off the kitchen, which has a door to the rear. Perhaps the most impressive room within the property is the fantastic double-height conservatory which is located off the family room. There are wonderful views over the garden, castle and loch from glass on three sides.

The master bedroom suite is located on the first floor, with a dressing room and en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle and sauna.

Gardens and grounds
The property enjoys wonderful grounds which extend to just under half an acre . The immaculately kept gardens are to the front and side and are mainly laid to lawn, with planted borders. There is a wooden built children’s play frame, which can be left for a new owner, to the side.

Electric gates open into a private driveway which leads from the front of the house to the rear, where there is parking space for a number of cars. An attached garage, with electrically operated door provides space for a car and ample storage.

Shared loch front
The property benefits from about 0.56 acres of loch front on Bardowie Loch, shared between the three properties in the courtyard. There is a slipway from which to launch a boat.

Square Footage: 3,385 sq ft
