This is a truly captivating detached Victorian villa sitting opposite Overtoun Park on a generous south facing garden plot at the corner of Rodger Drive/Broomieknowe Road.
This exceptional family home retains many period features and is brimming with original character and charm, as early inspection will reveal. The house has been significantly improved by our clients who have embarked on a programme of refurbishment which includes a full rewire, some re-plastering works to internal walls, fresh décor and quality floor coverings throughout, an extensively fitted kitchen with a range of integral appliances and centre breakfasting island, a smartly fitted bathroom with a traditional styled suite and freestanding bath, the installation of Upvc double glazed window units and there is a system of gas fired central heating by way of a highly efficient Worcester combination boiler. All works were completed circa 2017.
In terms of accommodation the property comprises an entrance vestibule accessed via twin leaf storm doors opening into a warm and welcoming reception hallway with staircase off to the upper level and useful under stair store cupboard. There is terrific formal lounge with fireplace detail to focal wall, a broad bay window over the gardens to front and additional side window allowing good natural light into the apartment. Across the other side of the reception hallway there is a flexible, dual aspect, dining room/fourth bedroom. The kitchen is an instantly impressive room, extensively fitted with a range of wall and base storage units and featuring an integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer, double electric oven, and gas hob. The kitchen also has French doors direct to the rear gardens and gives access to an adjacent utility room that is large enough to split into a utility room and downstairs shower room if required by the incoming purchaser.
The original stair sweeps through half landing where a well-appointed three piece family bathroom is located to the main upper landing which has a fitted linen cupboard and provides access to three bedrooms; two particularly large double rooms and single side facing bedroom.
Outside, there is an easily manged front garden that is enclosed by low level walling/privet hedging and driveway providing ample off-street parking. The wonderful rear garden is bounded by a mixture of walling/timber fencing and enjoys a good degree of privacy. The garden itself is level and mostly laid to lawn with two seating areas (one paved and the other decking) and a large outhouse which is ideal for several uses.
The property sits on Rodger Drive and is within walking distance of shops and amenities on Stonelaw Road with excellent schools close by with this property within the catchment area for Burnside Primary. 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 and gyms. There are excellent bus links to the City Centre and Burnside train station is only a short walk away. There are also excellent road links close by giving easy access to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network system.
The Energy Performance rating on this property is Band D.
