Built in the 1920s and 1930s the homes by The Southern Building Company are amongst the most admired in Bearsden. Very well built, and well designed, they tend to have better proportioned rooms, and bigger plot sizes, than equivalent properties.
Here is a fine detached Dormer Bungalow with an extension that provides a great open-plan dining kitchen with triple aspect including a set of bi-fold doors to a lovely stone flagged sun terrace. It has two impressive formal public rooms with fireplaces, and bay windows, and there are three double bedrooms supported by a shower room on the ground floor and, ensuite to the main bedroom upstairs, a bathroom. As our images and video will clearly show, this home is beautifully presented. It has a high-quality specification and outside a super level garden that is south facing at the rear and where considerable landscaping and investment has been made. It truly is a great home.

Ground floor

Broad Entrance Vestibule with timber storm doors and the original tiled floor; Reception Hall with a gorgeous oak herringbone floor; Sitting Room – with bay window to front and an original, single glazed, stained leaded octagonal window to the side. Painted fireplace with glazed tile inlay, a slate hearth, with an open fire; Lounge – with another painted fireplace, this time with a slate inlay and hearth and a wood burning stove; the Dining Kitchen – installed in late 2019, by Aspire Kitchens, has an attractive range of Shaker style units in vintage white colour with solid oak worktops against which is a ‘Metro’ wall tile. There is a Belfast sink and appliances include Range cooker by Belling with cooker hood and, by Bosch, microwave, dishwasher, tall larder fridge and tall freezer. Beneath the eye level units are discreet under unit lights. A feature of this room is its striking tiled floor, the large ‘fixed frame’ rear window and the bi-fold doors; Bedrooms 2 and 3; Shower Room with another striking black and white floor tile against which is a white ‘block’ wall tile. The large shower enclosure has a powerful thermostatic shower.

First floor

A return flight stair passes a large Velux window which throws a huge amount of light into the stairwell and at the turn of the stair there is a hatch door to a sizeable eaves’ storage space; Bedroom 1 – large main bedroom with dormer window to the front, wardrobe cupboard and a walk-in closet; Ensuite Bathroom with oval shaped free-standing bath and again, white ‘block’ wall tiles.

Original plaster cornice to the hall, sitting room, lounge, bedrooms 2 and 3. Coving to the kitchen and shower room. Detached single garage (wider than standard) with a further store at the rear. Flooring in the house includes the superb oak herringbone in the hall and with a 100% wool carpet to the sitting room, lounge, and bedrooms.


A level plot with neat front garden screened from the road by a rendered garden wall. Behind this is a flower bed and a rectangular area of grass with side borders. A gravel drive provides off street parking for up to four cars and has gates halfway down the drive for added security. A pedestrian gate, at the front, opens to a stone flagged path that leads to the front door as well as down the west side of the house. The rear garden is gated to both sides and is enclosed by modern timber fencing. It is south facing and has a large area of lawn. Outside the dining kitchen is the sheltered stone flagged sun terrace/patio from which leads a stone flagged pathway. There is a further gravel sitting area at the bottom corner of the garden. Five raised planters have been built using chunky wooden sleepers and there is a chunky bench seat with Pergola. Wood store for logs. Birch tree.


Located in the Kessington district, just off Milngavie Road, the house is very conveniently placed for the shops on Milngavie Road that includes a Sainsburys Convenience Store and a large Asda. Just north, off Milngavie Road, is the nearest Railway Station (Hillfoot) and some other shops. Bearsden Cross is about half a mile to the west where there is an excellent selection of shops, amenities, Cafes and Restaurants. School catchment is for Killermont Primary and for Boclair Academy where new £40m+ school premises are scheduled to be open later this year. Within Bearsden there is also the High School of Glasgow Junior School (Senior School is just to the south at Anniesland) and on Duntocher Road is St Ninian’s Primary.
