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.
