The homes in Bearsden’s Gartconnell district are amongst the areas most sought-after. Mostly built, early post war, by John Russell they are fine family properties with a wonderfully convenient location just to the north of Bearsden Cross, the heart of the town.
The “Argyle design” is arguably the most synonymous within Gartconnell. It is a very pretty, almost cottage-like in design, property in with a six-apartment layout that could be used as three or four bedrooms as required. Our clients, who have owned the property for some 29 years, use it, fundamentally, as a three public and three-bedroom arrangement but, as clients will see from our floorplan, have formed two smaller bedrooms (out of bedroom 2) by erecting a partition wall, with door, to provide the facility of four bedrooms in addition to the three public rooms. This could easily be reinstated.
Investment by our clients has been consistent over the years as one can clearly see from our imagery, the property being well-presented and boasting an impressive specification with a quality fitted kitchen and both a very smartly appointed bathroom and shower room. In 2021 the internal doors, and frames, were renewed with quality oak sets. All windows, and most external doors (only the retained original steel Crittall French door in the lounge is single glazed) are double glazed and there is a gas central heating system with a Baxi Solo regular boiler (under a maintenance contract with Scottish Gas). In addition, both the bathroom and showroom have underfloor electric heating. There is a security alarm system which can be zoned for different areas of the house.
To the westerly side of the house is a long “tandem style” double garage (boiler in here) and to the easterly side a useful small extension, off the kitchen, providing a laundry/boot room area with back door.
The house has a preferred orientation with a south- facing back garden which is of a size larger than typically expected.
