This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a particularly handsome, late Victorian/early Edwardian blonde sandstone semi-detached villa, sitting on a very nicely arranged, level garden plot in central Burnside, only a stones' throw from the many and varied amenities on Stonelaw Road.
This magnificent family home retains an abundance of period features and is brimming with original character and charm. The house itself features five flexible apartments with the added advantage of a comfortable heated conservatory at the rear. Furthermore, there is a large, one and a half-length garage, to the side, with a separate office space at the rear, which will prove invaluable for those seeking to work from home.
The property has been lovingly maintained, improved and upgraded by the present owners and will be hugely appealing to both growing and established families. Notable improvements include quality floor coverings and tasteful decor throughout, a smartly re-fitted kitchen (2015) with a range of integral appliances and real wood work surface areas, a stylish four piece family bathroom, installed in 2015, with freestanding bath and separate shower enclosure, double glazing and a system of gas fired central heating by way of an Ideal Logic combination boiler
In terms of accommodation, the property has a traditional layout with an entrance vestibule leading into a substantial, warm and welcoming reception hallway with original staircase leading off to the upper floor. There is a magnificent formal lounge with fireplace and freestanding multi fuel burning stove to the focal wall and bay window over the gardens at the front. The flexible dining/sitting room at the rear has wood panelling to dado height all-round, fireplace detail with living flame gas fire and feature porthole window to focal wall. Leading off the sitting/family room is a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely conservatory enjoying views over and direct access to the gardens at the rear. Located on the half landing is a stunning family bathroom with tiling to full height, a contemporary white three-piece suite and separate shower enclosure with thermostatic mixer shower and rainwater shower head. The main upper landing has a hatch with pull down ladder to a large floored attic storage area and provides access off to three bedrooms (two large doubles and a spacious single); the master of which features a bay window and enjoys tree lined aspects to the front.
Outside, the gardens to the front have been laid out with ease of maintenance in mind and are bounded by low level stone walling/wrought iron fencing and gates. There is a small lawn, some shrub borders and a block paved driveway for two cars leading to the garage at the side. The delightful rear garden is fully enclosed and has several landscaped areas, level lawn and seating/decked areas, a greenhouse and garden shed.
The property sits in Central Burnside and is within walking distance of shops and amenities upon Stonelaw Road. More extensive facilities can be found on Rutherglen Main Street and further afield at Kingsgate Retail Park which is only a short drive to the south east.
Recreational pursuits are varied within the general area and include well maintained parks, golf courses, gyms and excellent schooling at primary and secondary levels. There are excellent bus links to the City Centre, and Burnside railway station sits only a short distance from the property. There are also excellent road links close by including the recently built M74 link giving easy access to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network system.
The Energy performance rating on this property is Band D.
