Dickie Homes, sadly no longer operating, had a reputation for building particularly high-quality homes of great design, and space. This was very much the case for their development in Mains Estate, built in the 1990s. With a handful of house styles their traditionally built homes (brick cavity) are amongst the most admired modern properties in Milngavie.
Here is one of their most impressive – a generously proportioned Detached House (see floor plan) that is designed, essentially, in a bungalow style with all rooms, except the principal bedroom suite, on the ground floor. The front façade of the house really belies the extent of accommodation this excellent home has to offer.
Our clients have owned the house since new (circa 1995) and they have made some alterations to enhance what was, already, a superbly designed home.
The lounge, firstly, had a conservatory added but subsequently, in 2012, this was restructured, including the addition of a tiled roof, to integrate fully with the lounge and to provide the very sizeable room you see here (big enough to easily accommodate a grand piano). The original design featured a double garage – this is now a single, half of it converted to create the home office (increasingly a room wished for). Finally, what had been a fourth bedroom, with an ensuite shower room, has been repurposed so that the shower room is now off the hall with the bedroom becoming the property’s dining room, arranged open plan to the kitchen to provide that large dining kitchen space that is so essential/expected for current family living. All works have been very thoughtfully, and successfully, executed as clients will see both from our plans and from our imagery.
Heating is mains gas where there is a Potterton PrimaF system boiler with a large capacity, high pressure, Megaflo hot water cylinder to service the four shower rooms/bathroom. Ahead of current public thinking, circa 2012, our clients had the foresight to install 16 photovoltaic roof solar panels (on the south roof pitch) to provide most of their electricity needs. This operates via a Solax Invertor, and the house has a Smart Meter to readily monitor usage. The installation came with a 20 Year feed-in tariff (we are informed) for which there is an annual payback/return of approximately £500 to £600. There are therefore a few years of this remaining.
The house is double glazed throughout and there is a security system installed. Original builders smoke detectors in the hall also initiate the intruder alarm system.
An air extraction system operates throughout bathrooms and kitchen, installed by builder.

Accommodation


The subjects are generally of a fine scale, and this is immediately evident upon entering the generous Reception Hall. It is a home that will suit growing families and one that should also appeal to couples looking for a sizeable house that can comfortably accommodate the family when they come to visit.
To summarise, we detail the accommodation as follows:

Ground floor

• Hall – A generous space with five storage cupboards.

• Home Office – Fitted storage cabinets and some wall shelves.
• Dining Room – Open plan to the kitchen.
• Kitchen – Includes patio doors to the rear garden’s monobloc patio. Units are beech style with a contrasting white speckled effect worksurface and where there are integrated appliances of hob with 5 gas burners, filter cooker hood, oven with grill, microwave, dishwasher, and a tall larder fridge.

• Second Dressing Closet – Off the landing and again with a run of installed hanging and shelving units for clothing.

Gardens


To the front there is a monobloc driveway that provides off street parking for three to maybe four cars. A well-tended lawn features seven cherry blossom trees. A pathway leads around the side of the house, via gates, to the westerly facing rear garden (ideal orientation to capture the sun). The rear garden is very private and is fenced, along which is established planting for added privacy. There is a lawn that wraps around the side of the house. Across the back of the property is a patio (monobloc) and a raised sun terrace (slabbed). To the utility room side of the house is a further slabbed area, with side gate, upon which is a shed. Externally there are two water taps.

Situation


The Mains Estate is a highly regarded corner of Milngavie on the south westerly fringe of the Village. Surrounding it is a lovely woodland walk and close by is the highly regarded Douglas Academy Secondary School. Primary provision is Clober Primary. Newly opened and near the Village Centre is the Oakburn Early Years Centre. Milngavie Village is just over a mile away and here its pedestrianised centre has an excellent selection of quality retailers and outlets. This includes a Marks & Spencer Foodhall, a Boots, and at the far end of the precinct a Tesco. By Tesco is Milngavie Railway Station, which provides four trains an hour into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre (peak times) and two trains per hour at off peak times. Milngavie has long been regarded as one of the foremost residential areas in Glasgow, indeed central Scotland, and within it Mains Estate is one of the nicest places in which to reside. The homes by John Dickie Homes are perhaps the most highly regarded.
