Stables Cottage, as the name conveys, is a traditional Semi-Detached House that was formerly part of the stables to the ‘B’ Listed Victorian mansion house Carrickarden. The character of the original building has been maintained with post-war extensions making the house into really quite a unique, and very engaging, two bedroomed home as hopefully our photographs and video will convey. It offers good space and an appealing layout, including a spacious hall with a gorgeous limestone floor that runs through the spine of the house (see floor plan). The subjects are extremely well presented with freshly painted white walls accentuated with the light that comes through the property, particularly the south and west windows.
The location of Stables Cottage is unquestionably one of its great assets – located at the end of Beechwood Lane (off Drymen Road) it is quietly tucked away behind a high Victorian brick wall, large iron driveway gates, and mature planting/trees, in a lovely garden the majority of which lies to the front and side of the house. Here a gravel drive winds past the house to a double width Car Port and a more than ample parking area. So extensive is all of this it has accommodated up to 10 cars when our client has had guests around. Central, with a surrounding area of grass is a lovely rockery bed with a particularly fine specimen fir tree. The rear garden, which is south facing, is a much smaller area and more of a patio garden with artificial grass, fenced decked area (great for barbeques) and atop a slabbed, and sheltered, patio a large Hot Tub which our client will include in the sale. By the Car Port is a large Shed (power and light installed. Alarmed) and in the gated rear garden a smaller timber Tool Shed. To the front garden fence, on the front of the house, the Car Port and rear garden are lights (some Coach Lamps) operating on ‘dawn to dusk’ sensors. A movement sensor in the Car Port activates a floodlight. As well as the house, and Shed being alarmed, there is a video intercom system for the front gates.


• Hall – Wide, ‘L’ shaped, and with the limestone floor. Window and glass panel door to the rear garden.
• Lounge – Double aspect with windows south and west. A vaulted ceiling gives the room a real sense of space. Wall lights and wall shelves. Brick fireplace, with chunky wooden mantel, with a wood burning stove by Stovax (there are two wood stores outside).
• Kitchen – Installed in 2008 and with a range of matt charcoal grey coloured units, both eye level and counter height where there is a walnut wood strip style worktop. Facing south, it has quite an appealing window arrangement with five windows running across the back wall with an additional five windows set into the pitch of the roof (extra single glazed panels here to create, in effect, triple glazing and with white wooden shutter blinds). Kitchen appliances include four burner gas hob, filter cooker hood, double oven with grill, washing machine, fridge, and freezer. ‘Metro’ wall tiling above worksurfaces, six LED downlighters, five pendant bulb lights at the window, shelving unit with downlighters and micro-led lights set into the base units kickboard.
• Bedroom 1 – Two frame window to front (north) and a run of two double width wardrobes along one wall.
• Bedroom 2 – Another double. Two framed window to front (north).
• Bathroom – As with the kitchen, fitted in 2008. Smartly done with modern four-piece white suite including a shower enclosure with a powerful thermostatic shower. Tiled floor and walls. Chrome towel radiator.
The central heating to the property is mains gas where the boiler was renewed approximately four years ago with an Ideal Logic Combi 30 Boiler under a Maintenance Contract with Domestic & General. Much of the house was double glazed circa 7 years ago with UPVc units – lounge (rear windows), bedrooms, bathroom. There are timber framed double glazed windows in the hall, kitchen, and lounge side window.


Kitchen appliances; within the hall the mirror, shelf, and shoe cabinet; the wall mounted televisions in the kitchen and Bedroom 1; the DVD player for Bedroom 1; the Hot Tub on the rear patio; all carpets and blinds; the chest freezer in the smaller garden shed.


Stables Cottage is within the Conservation Area of Bearsden and is very handily located off Drymen Road at the end of Beechwood Lane. As such, one can readily access the services and amenities of Bearsden via Drymen Road but also, on foot, via Carrickarden Road, which quickly takes you to Milngavie Road, at Kessington, and the shops and services to be found there - these include a Sainsbury’s convenience store and a large Asda. Bearsden Railway Station is less than half a mile and to the north along Drymen Road where you will find a late opening and well stocked Co-op with Bearsden Cross just under a mile away where there is an excellent selection of quality independent retailers, Cafes, and Restaurants along with a Bank, Post Office and a Marks & Spencer Foodhall.
