Enhanced by a sizeable, rear extension, “Hollywood” is an impressive late Victorian, semi-detached villa overlooking the adjacent fields, Bardowie Loch and Castle and the Campsie Fells. The home retains a number of attractive, period features and offers seven principal apartments configured as three bedrooms and four public rooms. Some years ago, the current owners purchased extra land beyond the rear boundary for added peace of mind in order to retain the privacy and seclusion and this has now been beautifully landscaped offering expansive, enclosed, lawned gardens. Bardowie itself is a charming hamlet on the outskirts of Milngavie located within the ancient parish of Baldernock and is a popular haven for those looking to utilise the local beauty spot of Bardowie Loch, home to Clyde Cruising Club Dinghy section offering sailing classes and with the beautiful backdrop of Bardowie Castle. The area is home to a number of acclaimed walking and sailing routes including the Old Allander Toll path alongside the Allander River to links to Milngavie and the extensive range of amenities therein including a choice of supermarket, shops, restaurants and excellent schooling at all levels. Balmore Road leads to Glasgow City Centre and Milngavie train station provides a regular and direct service to both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
A block paved driveway provides off-street parking for several vehicles and leads to the garage with power, lighting, a door to the utility room and further door into the hallway of the home. A patio lies adjacent to the conservatory and the dining kitchen at the rear and the garden consists of expanses of lawn complimented by a periphery of plants and shrubs. The sizeable garden is formed in an L shape and continues to further block paved patio areas, a summer house, greenhouse and sizeable timber shed. High levels of screening and privacy are afforded by bordering hedgerows. Within the home, the character is immediately evident on entering the entrance hall which is wood panelled to dado height and is complimented by solid wooden flooring and a beautiful Oregon pine staircase with central carpet runner and stair-rods. The lounge features picture rails, a shelved storage press, deep bay window, central ceiling rose and contains a focal point fireplace with gas insert. The solid wooden flooring continues in the dining room where there is an original fireplace, almost floor to ceiling window and the rear hall leads to a shower room and door to the garage beyond which is the second utility room/washroom with direct access to the rear garden. An expansive dining kitchen exceeds 20ft in length and opens at the far end to a utility room and then, the rear garden. A conservatory completes the ground floor and the ornate staircase leads to the galleried landing off which, are three bedrooms, bedroom one offering arguably the finest views of the loch from a further deep bay window and finally, there is a five piece bathroom with roll-top bath, separate shower enclosure and traditional heated towel radiator.
