The early post-war semi-detached houses built by John Russell are some of the most popular properties in Bearsden. Traditionally built and of a good size (see floor plan), they are located in the brilliant location of Gartconnell – just north of Bearsden Cross, near the beauty spot of Kilmardinny Loch and within the catchment for Bearsden Primary (some residents obtain placements at Mosshead Primary) and for Bearsden Academy, recently ranked No. 2 State Secondary in Scotland.

Following the purchase of the house in 2015 our clients undertook the significant process of modernising and upgrading the property, including making the kitchen and the dining room an open plan space – precisely the arrangement that most young families seek. The kitchen, bathroom and shower room were all renewed and the house redecorated throughout – executed with taste and style. Floor coverings were all renewed and include solid oak (hall, lounge), tile (dining kitchen, bathroom and shower room), carpet (staircase, upper hall, all bedrooms). The house has white framed UPVC double glazed windows. The rear door and French doors were renewed in 2016. Central heating is gas where there is a Potterton Promax Combi 28HE Plus Boiler. The lounge has the luxury of a wood burning stove by Stovax. There are 10 Photovoltaic solar roof panels installed in May 2013 providing a feed in tariff return of approximately £300 per annum. To the side of the house, at the end of a two car monobloc driveway, is a long single garage with a laundry area to the rear. It has a quality Everest remote control garage door. The house is alarmed and has external security lighting.

Ground floor

Hall – With window. Understair cupboard.
Shower Room – Very impressively fitted with white ‘block’ wall tiles with grey grout. Shower is thermostatic.
Lounge – Five frame bow window to the front. Stovax wood burning stove.
Dining Kitchen – Made into a single room in 2016 and fitted with a range of white high gloss kitchen units by Magnet. Work surfaces are grey concrete style above which is white ‘Metro’ wall tiling with grey grout. Franke sink. Under unit lights and LED lights set into pelmet above the sink. Appliances include – five burner gas hob, filter cooker hood, double oven with grill, fridge freezer, dishwasher. Window and French doors to the rear garden, back door to a rear porch that connects to the garage, providing access to the laundry area.

First floor

Hall – Gable window, cupboard, hatch to attic (loft ladder).
Bedroom 1 – Spacious double room.
Bedroom 2 – Good sized double room.
Bedroom 3 – A large single room that would accommodate double bed if required.
Bathroom – As with the shower room, installed in 2016 and very smartly done. Above the bath is a powerful thermostatic shower with both Deluge and hand shower heads. ‘Metro’ wall tiling with white grout. Feature hexagonal shaped marble floor tiles. Anthracite grey towel radiator.


The attic is fully lined, floored and carpeted and is used as a Home Office space. There are two Velux windows (one to front and one to rear) access points into various eaves storage areas within which the boiler is located.


To the front is a terraced arrangement with two lawns and a front shrub/rockery bed. To the side of the garage a monobloc driveway, via gate, leads to the rear garden. This is fully enclosed by a new (2021) fence and lies mainly to grass with some shrub planting. There are two beds atop a brick retaining wall immediately to the rear of the property below which is a patio.


The Gartconnell area is a highly desirable location due to the school catchment it provides and its close proximity to Bearsden Cross. Here you will find an excellent cross section of quality independent retailers, Restaurants, Cafes, Pharmacies, Butchers and Fishmongers amongst others. There is a well-stocked Post Office and a Bank of Scotland. Bus services operate nearby on Drymen Road and through The Cross with Bearsden Railway Station just south of The Cross providing four trains an hour into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre (peak times) and two trains an hour at off peak times. Situated at the end of Morven Road as detailed earlier is the local beauty spot of Kilmardinny Loch and its surrounding woodland walk.
