• Charming five apartment home (two Public Rooms, three Bedrooms).

Claremont Gardens is a pretty address of two Victorian terraces at the very heart of Milngavie Village, minutes from the pedestrianised centre and next to the Bowling Green. Dating from circa 1905 the properties have all the character and appeal one would expect from a period home and the residents have a very strong sense of collective community. It is a great neighbourhood in which to live.
No. 7 is a Mid-Terraced House on the southerly side of the Gardens, its rear garden therefore being a sun trap. As clients will see from our imagery it retains lovely original features such as woodwork (doors, skirtings, floors), plasterwork (cornice) and fireplace (in the lounge). Owned by our client family for some 45 years it has been a much loved and cared for home. In recent years (2019) the windows in the house (except the kitchen) were replaced with top-quality double-glazed windows in a traditional sash and casement design – very well done and a nod to the property’s origins. Indeed, the appointed manufacturer has incorporated the original stain leaded top panels into the lounge bay window – a super piece of work. Only the two windows in the kitchen are single glazed and the replacement double glazed window in the shower room is fixed frame, with an opening top section.
The house has mains gas central heating with a combination boiler (Alpha cb 28x model). The bathroom, which is compact, has been made into a more modern shower room and the kitchen has a range of oak Shaker units.
It is a home that marries all the charm and style of its period origins with the comfort of modern appointments and fitments.
Clients will note that Claremont Gardens is not a wide road, which is part of its charm. There is parking provision along one side of it. At the easterly end of the gardens there are parking bays which belong to the Council. Some residents of Claremont Gardens have obtained permission to use one of these spaces and indeed the now deceased owner of No 7 had such a permission. It could be that this is an option for the new purchaser, but no guarantees can be given, and the ultimate buyer of the house would need to make their own enquiries of the Council in this regard.

Ground floor


• Entrance Vestibule – Tiled floor and a glazed canopy over the front wall of the entrance.
• Hall – A most welcoming entry to the house. Stripped pine floorboards and a handsome staircase ascending to the upper floor.
• Lounge – Featuring a box bay window to the front with the aforementioned stain leaded top window section incorporated into the double-glazed unit. Mahogany fireplace with marble inlay and hearth. Alcove glass shelves.
• Dining Room – With rear facing window and open access through to the kitchen.
• Kitchen – This is ‘L’ shaped and has two single glazed, timber framed, windows to the rear and a timber back door to the garden. It features oak Shaker units with modern brush nickel handles and a contrasting white worksurface. Inset is a stainless-steel sink and appliances include a cooker with four gas hobs, filter cooker hood, inbuilt dishwasher, fridge and separate freezer and a free-standing washing machine. The lowered ceiling has LED downlighters.

First floor


• Staircase – The staircase is lovely, and features stripped wooden treads with painted risers. It curves up to the upper floor but at the turn has a doorway to the property’s shower room.
• Shower Room – Formerly a bathroom and now featuring a modern three-piece white suite, it has WC, wash hand basin and a shower enclosure with a thermostatic shower. There is a concealed hatch door giving access to a useful storage area in which the boiler is located. Some other properties have integrated this space and installed a Conservation Velux window (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).
• Upper Hall – Fitted cupboards and a hatch to the remaining attic space of the property.
• Bedroom 1 – A double sized main room with two framed Dormer window to the front and two eaves storage cupboards.
• Bedroom 2 – Another good-sized double room with two framed Dormer window to the rear. Again, two eaves storage cupboards.
• Bedroom 3 – This is a small single room with two framed front facing Dormer window.
Flooring in the property is quite traditional, and attractive, and features stripped original pine floorboards in the hall, lounge, dining room and bedrooms 1 and 3. Carpets are featured in bedroom 2 and at the half landing and there are vinyl floor tiles in the kitchen.

Garden


The garden is neat and level and to the front has a gravel garden for pots and troughs with a front border and fence along which honeysuckle and clematis is trained. At the front of the bay window is a lovely acer tree and there is a slabbed pathway leading to the front door.
The rear garden has a south, southeast orientation to capture the sun and is fenced in and has a rear gate to a lane at the rear for even more ready access to the Village Centre. It is monobloc for ease of maintenance and has a small garden shed and a lean-to greenhouse. External water tap.

Situation


The property could not be more handily placed for Milngavie Centre. It literally is on the doorstep. As such the excellent cross section of quality independent retailers along with the High Street names of Boots, Marks & Spencer and Tesco are minutes away. School catchment has been detailed earlier and within the Village are Cafes, Restaurants and Bars. Milngavie, importantly, has a Railway Station providing regular links into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre as well as a service to Edinburgh. Milngavie is also the start/finish of The West Highland Way and therefore wonderful walks through Allander Park, Drumclog Moor and on to Mugdock Country Park.
Just a lovely home.
