Description

• Three-bedroom Semi-Detached House.
• In a prime Milngavie address.

• Modern décor including pine floorboards and log burning stove.
• Gas central heating (four-year-old combi boiler), double glazing, garage.
Just north of the village centre, Blane Drive and its cul-de-sac partner Roselea Drive are easily two of the two most desirable addresses for these semi-detached homes in Milngavie. Built in the early 1960s by John Lawrence this traditionally built (brick cavity) Semi-Detached House would make a great home for couples and families.
Its location is charmingly discreet located just north of Milngavie Village Centre, off Strathblane Road and via the delightful cherry blossomed tree lined approach of Roselea Drive (a wonderful burst of colour circa May). Not only is it minutes’ walk from the amenities of Milngavie, and its Railway Station, it provides almost immediate access to the walks around Craigmaddie and Mugdock Reservoirs – dog walking, jogging, or simply a stroll upon your doorstep. Beyond this, access is provided to Drumclog Moor and then on to Mugdock Country Park.
As one can see from our photographs, and video, the subjects present a bold modern decorative palette off-set by stripped and sanded pine floorboards (the boards in the main bedroom painted white). The lounge has the warmth and cosiness of a modern wood burning stove to augment a gas central heating system where the boiler was renewed about four years ago with an efficient Worcester Greenstar combination boiler. All windows, other than the entrance porch, are double glazed with external doors double glazed composite, the striking grey coloured contemporary front door only installed in 2019. The kitchen, galley style, has oak Shaker units and has a range of appliances including, amongst others, a large American fridge freezer, an almost new washing machine (2020) and dishwasher (2021). The fully tiled modern bathroom is smartly designed and features a powerful thermostatic shower set over the bath and a chrome towel radiator.
The accommodation is detailed on our floor plan, but in summary includes:

Ground floor


• Entrance Porch
• Hall
• Lounge – With broad three frame window to the front and the wood burning stove at the focal point.
• Dining Room – Furnished as a living room. This is open plan to the lounge. Window to the rear.
• Kitchen – Oak Shaker units with granite style worktops into which is set a Belfast style sink. The kitchen is arranged on a galley style basis and has appliances that include five burner gas hob, double oven with grill, American style fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

First floor


The staircase to the first floor is smartly done with the original pine treads retained offset by white painted risers.
• Upper hallway – With side window to the gable wall, hatch (with loft ladder) to the attic, and cupboard over the stairhead.
• Bedroom 1 – A spacious main bedroom to the front.
• Bedroom 2 – Another double room, rear facing with a good aspect.
• Bedroom 3 – Single room.
• Bathroom

Attic


The attic is accessed via a pull-down loft ladder and is boarded for storage. Insulated it also has a modern Velux window. Provides very good storage.

Exterior


The house sits on a level plot where our clients have landscaped the front garden with raised beds/planters and at the rear built a sun deck across the back of the house, which is south facing. There is a section of grass to the rear and further planting all enclosed by fencing. At the end of the slabbed and gravel driveway (which takes three cars) is the block-built detached single garage, with pitched roof. There is a small, painted, sentry style garden shed. Our clients will be removing the dog run/kennel to the back of the garage and similarly removing the log stores to the side of the house that sit across half of the driveway at present.

Situation


For those with children the Primary catchment is the excellent, and nearby, Milngavie Primary with Secondary provision at the high performing Douglas Academy. The Village Centre is pedestrianised and has an excellent selection of quality independent retailers along with the High Street names of Boots, Marks & Spencers (Foodhall) and a Tesco. At the Burnbrae Retail Park there is a large Waitrose and Aldi. Milngavie has many Clubs and Societies and on nearby Strathblane the excellent facilities of the Nuffield Health & Wellbeing Club (Health & Sports Centre with Golf Course). Milngavie Railway Station provides regular links into Glasgow’s West End and City Centre (two trains an hour off peak and four trains an hour peak times), including a service through to Edinburgh Waverley. With amenities on your doorstep and countryside but minutes away, this is a great place in which to live.
