The Mosshead district remains one of Bearsden’s most sought after. Its excellent Primary School, Secondary catchment, being nearby Kilmardinny Loch and Woodland, the quite unique asset of Bearsden Ski Club, its comprehensively stocked Co-op Store, and its relative proximity to Bearsden Cross all contribute to its enduring popularity.
Most of the Estate was built by ws Gordon (pre and post war) with many of its 1970s properties, such as this three-bedroom Semi-Detached House, inspired by a Canadian design of k-Lath construction.
Our clients, who have owned the house for some nine years, have invested significantly to create a home of great style, quality specification and considerable imagination. One simply needs to review our imagery to have this confirmed.
Not only has the interior benefited from the vendors’ efforts over the years, but so too has the exterior where a wonderful Garden Studio was constructed (2020) with broad 5.2m wide patio doors by Express Bi-Fold Doors, contemporary Cedral Lap cladding in cool slate grey. The Studio has gas underfloor heating and, to its gable end, an integral Utility Store. Beyond this, also finished in slate grey Cedral Lap cladding, is a cleverly designed Workroom/Store located within the former Car Port, the electric remote-controlled door for which is still in situ and functioning.
Our clients have renewed all sanitaryware (in periods from 2014 to 2022), installed the impressive kitchen (2015), decorated all rooms and renewed all floor coverings, installed oak internal doors plus a feature glass sliding door to the lounge, illuminated many rooms with LED ceiling lighting, installed the Vokera combination boiler where most rooms feature trendy column radiators (towel radiators, either chrome or black, in the bathroom/en-suite/WC) with additional pipe work to provide additional sub-floor heating to the ground floor of the house. The Studio has underfloor heating with pipework to a manifold.
Truthfully it is only by viewing the property can full appreciation of the thought and investment that has gone into this home be made. Prior to their ownership windows, and doors, have been replaced with white framed UPVC double glazed windows. Soffits and fascias are similarly in low maintenance UPVC.

Ground floor

• Hall – Double width coats cupboard plus a further hall store with understairs cupboard.
• Lounge/Dining Room – Picture window to the front and French doors to the rear. A feature sliding glass door from the hall is a nice design touch and, furthermore, so too is the ceiling lighting pod and wall panel at the dining area – a lovely piece of design.
• Kitchen – White high gloss units and an ash style worktop with tiled splashbacks. Appliances include halogen hob with glass back panel, oven (new, 2022), microwave, warming drawer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, and fridge freezer (new, 2022). Integrated recycling bins. LED micro lights set into the kickboards.
• WC – Cool and contemporary. Black ironmongery and towel radiator.

First floor

A return flight staircase with renewed oak balustrade/handrail ascends to a half landing with a high-level window and an attractively executed ‘brick tiled’ wall.
• Upper Hall – Linen cupboard. Hatch to attic.
• Bedroom 1 – Three frame window to the rear.
• Ensuite Shower Room – Brilliantly done in 2018. Cool and contemporary it features a circular wash hand basin set atop a ‘floating’ oak veneer top. The shower enclosure has a powerful Aqualisa thermostatic shower with a ‘stop/start’ control button to the outside of the enclosure.
• Bedroom 2 – Another double room with three framed window to the front with a distant view to the horizon of The Campsie Fells.
• Bedroom 3 – A good sized single room. It has a triple width wardrobe with oak veneer doors, the central one of which has a mirror.
• Bathroom – From 2014 but upgraded further over subsequent years. This features a four-piece suite including another shower enclosure with again a thermostatic shower. There is both a ‘floating’ wash hand basin vanity unit and WC cabinet. Chrome towel radiator.
The flooring in the house includes lvf (luxury vinyl flooring) oak planks in the hall, lounge/dining room and kitchen; carpet to the stair (modern pattern) and upper hall, bedrooms (self-coloured); tile – WC, ensuite shower room, bathroom.

Gardens studio and store

Built in 2020 it is a fantastic addition and very smartly finished in a dark grey Cedral Lap cladding board with a wet underfloor central heating system operating via the boiler and featuring a column radiator. It would provide a wonderful Home Office workspace or room for undertaking hobbies, yoga/palates etc. It has its own independent circuit board for electrics. It has a mono pitched roof with a pronounced overhang into which is set soffit lighting along with two modern coach lamp style wall lights either side of the patio doors. The storeroom houses the manifold for the underfloor heating and has electricity installed. Used for housing an additional fridge and freezer.

Car port and workshop/storeroom

The Car Port in these properties were semi-enclosed and this one features an electric remote controlled rollover garage door. It has a concrete base and upon it has been built a really excellent Workshop/General Store similarly designed to the Garden Studio. Full power and light installed and, again, independent circuit breaker.


To the front there is a gravel driveway for one car and there is a gravel and steppingstone pathway to the front door. A small area of grass. The rear garden is south facing and has been landscaped and has a smart grey stone slabbed patio and pathway with chunky wooden sleepers acting as retaining walls to an elevated area of grass that is all fenced in. A super outside space, particularly in conjunction with the fabulous Garden Studio.


Mosshead is on the northerly fringe of Bearsden and within it is the excellent Mosshead Primary School. Secondary catchment is for Bearsden Academy at Courthill (ranked No. 2 State Secondary in Scotland). Next to this is St Nicholas’s Primary School and within Bearsden is the Junior School for The High School of Glasgow. Bearsden Cross, the heart of the town, is approximately 1 mile to the south and here you will find an excellent cross section of shops and amenities and just south of The Cross, Bearsden Railway Station. Within Mosshead and on Stockiemuir Avenue is a particularly well stocked modern Co-Op Store. Nearby is the local beauty spot of Kilmardinny Loch and its surrounding Woodland and there are two Parks within Mosshead with play areas for children.
