A pre-war Detached Bungalow built by John Lawrence in the 1930s with a fantastically convenient location in the Chapelton district of Bearsden – a desirable area south of Bearsden Cross between Drymen Road and the Milngavie Road.
It sits amidst a remarkable sized garden, for this type of property, and one that affords great scope for significant development/extension should clients seek to develop a larger home. Such work, of course, would require the necessary planning consent and warrant. The bulk of the garden lies to the rear where it is southerly facing and truly is a fantastic space. The house has already been extended, our clients adding a Sunroom/Living Room to the rear of the property which really is the main living space, beside the kitchen, with its view across the southerly facing rear garden. This is in addition to an earlier conversion of the roof space that provided a third Bedroom, with dormer window overlooking the rear garden. As detailed above, and as seen from the photographs of the house, the roof has been smartly re-tiled. This was done, we understand, in 2010.
Our clients have owned the house since 1959 and it has very much been a much-loved family home. In addition to the above extensions and re-roofing, the property has replacement UPVC double glazed windows installed and there is a gas central heating system with a modern Worcester Greenstar Junior 28i combination boiler. In 2019 the Bathroom was refitted to being a smart contemporary Shower Room. Beyond this, though, as one can see from our photographs and video the subjects are decoratively very dated, as are the kitchen fitments, and therefore clients should factor capital investment to upgrade the subjects. The result would be a fine property in a great location.
