Dun-Gol is a striking semi detached Victorian villa, set upon a substantial garden plot that is south facing at the rear and commands impressive panoramic views to front across the City and beyond towards the Campsie Fells
The house successfully marries period flair and distinction with luxurious modern finishes and benefits from many notable improvements such as some rewiring and replumbing works, replacement floor coverings throughout and many restored period features including stained leaded glass, woodwork, ceiling cornicing and original fireplace details within the hallway and formal lounge. All walls and ceilings have been re-plastered, some windows renewed with quality UPVC and there is a re-fitted kitchen. Upstairs the property has been cleverly re-configured to form a large main bathroom and an en-suite shower room off bedroom two. Both have also been finished to an exceptionally high standard. Furthermore, the property has a system of gas fired central heating and there is a burglar alarm for added peace of mind.
In terms of accommodation the property is entered via a covered portico and entrance vestibule to an immediately impressive and substantial reception hallway with excellent in-built storage and staircase off to the upper level. There is an elegant lounge with a broad bay window over the gardens to front. The flexible dining/sitting room is rear facing and overlooks the garden. The adjacent fitted kitchen has a side hallway with pantry, cloakroom/w.C and utility porch off which in turn gives direct access to the garden at the rear.
The original stair leads through half landing where a superb family bathroom consisting of a contemporary three piece suite with separate shower enclosure can be found. The large upper hallway has in-built storage with hatch over to a large attic storage area and provides access off to three double sized bedrooms; the master of which features a broad bay window and bedroom two, the aforementioned en-suite shower room.
Outside the property has an easily managed lawn to front bounded by low level stone walling/privet hedging. There is a driveway to side that extends the length of the property and provides off street parking for multiple vehicles. At the rear there is a large basement area consisting of two rooms and an integral garage that is accessed via twin doors. The basement has power points, lighting and a water supply with two Belfast sinks located in the main basement room. The delightful rear garden has been significantly improved by the present owners who have created a child friendly garden that features an expansive level lawn with borders of mature shrubs/plants and there is a large patio ideal for entertaining/alfresco dining.
The property sits in a much sought after pocket of Burnside and is within walking distance of shops and amenities on Stonelaw Road.
