The kitchen comes equipped with modern fitted units and there is breakfast bar which separates the kitchen from the family room.

The nearby towns of Lenzie and Bishopbriggs, Bearsden and Milngavie offer more extensive shopping and recreational amenities and Glasgow City Centre is only 8 miles away.

What the Owners Say
"This house was the first house we have owned and we've had a lot of fun, joy and happiness here. Since we moved in we've created a new family room which is a great place for our children to play in. We are going to miss family dinners around the breakfast bar and spending time with our friends preparing food together. Another addition has been the installation of the multi fuel stove in the lounge and we have spent many cold winter hours in front of it while enjoying a dram or a glass of wine.
We will truly miss the Torrance community as we absolutely loved the village atmosphere. Both our children went to the local toddler group just 5 minutes' walk from the house. We have loved the local bakery that delivered fresh rolls on Saturdays. The annual Christmas light switch on has been such a lovely wee social event where young and old come together to soak up the Christmas atmosphere.
Torrance is surrounded by woodland paths and trails and we have very fond memories of our children learning to ride their bikes here. We are really going to miss our neighbours, the community, great primary school and this beautiful home but it's now time for us to say goodbye. We know that this house will be just as special for anyone calling it Home."
