In one of the more peaceful addresses within this desirable corner of Bearsden (essentially an Avenue only for the residents) is this extended pre-war 1930s Detached Bungalow. Set amidst a particularly good-sized garden, that is west facing (ideal). At the rear of the house is a large rear extension (flat roof) to provide the sizeable kitchen area as seen. Furthermore, the former attic void has been developed to make a third bedroom, with two dormer windows (one to front, one to rear). Both were done before our client bought the house some 41 years ago.
As one can see from our floorplan most of the accommodation falls over the ground floor, only Bedroom 3 being on the first floor. As such, the house could well appeal to couples downsizing for retirement but also, given its overall size, location (close by schooling), and scope it affords for upgrading and potentially even further development (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents), also to family buyers seeking to establish roots within Bearsden.
Our client had the original roof re-tiled, within the last decade, and the soffits and fascias have been replaced in white UPVc. All windows, except the skylight, are white framed UPVc double glazed (including the French doors in the kitchen), of mixed vintages. Central heating is mains gas and here the Ideal Mexico he 24 Regular Boiler, located in the garage, is under a Maintenance Contract. The property has a security alarm system. To the side of the house is an attached single garage with power and light installed, side window (double glazed) and a pass door to the rear garden. The garden is a feature of this house, its orientation westerly at the rear being perfect for catching the sun. Here our client has invested by installing a large monobloc drive to the front/side which leads up the side of the house to the garage. It provides off-street parking for up to four cars. Very impressively the rear garden has been landscaped with a large, grey, stone slabbed patio with matching pathways – the rear garden is really a great space to enjoy, with a rather pleasant outlook.

Ground floor

• Entrance Vestibule – With UPVc double glazed storm doors.
• Hall – UPVc double glazed inner door.
• Lounge – Featuring box bay window to the front. At the focal point of the room is a 1960s/1970s style stone fireplace. Note: The open fire here is only decorative, not functioning as the chimney head has been removed.
• Living Room – Originally a dining room. 1970s style Fyfestone fireplace. Note: Again, open fire only for decorative purposes as chimney head has been removed.
• Dining Room – A small dining area on an open plan arrangement to the kitchen extension. In the original layout of the house this would have been Bedroom 2.
• Kitchen – The extension to the house and a particularly large space featuring three windows to the south, west and north as well as a set of double-glazed French doors to the rear garden facing west. As clients will see from the photographs dark oak style units are employed here of an old vintage, these are at eye level and counter height and include a peninsular unit with breakfast bar. There are appliances integrated within the kitchen and these include a four-burner gas hob, oven, microwave, filter cooker hood, dishwasher, fridge, and freezer. For any new client coming in this is a great space to create any redesign and refitting of the kitchen.
• Bedroom 1 – Double sized ground floor room with window to the rear and along the main wall a run of fitted wardrobes.
• Bedroom 2 – Window to the side. In the original layout of the house, this would have been the kitchen. It is currently used as a Playroom for grandchildren.
• Bathroom – This has a white modern suite with wet-wall panelling. Above the bath is an up-to-date Mira Sport electric shower. Heated chrome towel rail.

First floor

• Staircase – A narrow width staircase with open treads ascends, on a return flight basis, to an upper landing. At the half landing there are cupboard doors into some eave’s storage space and above it a skylight window for light.
• Bedroom 3 – A conversion of the former attic space this is a double sized room with coombe ceilings and storage cupboards built into the eaves space. Features two Dormer windows, one to the front and one to the rear.
