This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a particularly handsome, late Victorian/early Edwardian stone built semi-detached villa, sitting on a lovely, south facing garden plot in a much sought-after and established pocket of Rutherglen,
This striking family home retains an abundance of period features and offers well balanced and versatile accommodation within five principal apartments formed over two levels, with the added advantage of an invaluable floored/lined attic room. The house has been significantly improved by the current owners and is presented for sale in first class condition, as early inspection will reveal.
Notable features include tasteful decorative tones and quality floor coverings throughout, a modern fitted kitchen with a range of integral appliances, a smartly re-fitted bathroom and w.c, replacement internal doors, renewed pvc double glazed window units and there is a system of gas fired central heating by way of a highly efficient Worcester combination boiler (with Hive controller) that was installed approximately two years ago.
In terms of accommodation the property comprises an entrance vestibule opening into a particularly large reception hallway with staircase off to the upper level. There is a magnificent formal lounge with fireplace detail to focal wall and a deep box bay window over the gardens to the front. The dining/sitting room is rear facing with a useful under stair store/office space off and allows passage through to an extensively fitted kitchen that in turn gives direct access to the garden. The kitchen itself features an integral washing machine, double oven, microwave, and gas hob.
On the upper half landing there is a luxuriously appointed bathroom and separate w.c. The main upper landing provides access to three spacious bedrooms; the principal having a fireplace detail to focal wall and a broad box bay window with open views to front. There is also a fixed stair from the upper landing that leads to a sizeable attic room with Velux window and a walk-in store cupboard off.
Outside, the gardens to front have been laid out with ease of maintenance in mind and feature a variety of trees/shrubs bounded by low level stone walling. The delightful, south facing rear garden is fully enclosed and well screened with mature trees, aiding in a high level of privacy and seclusion. The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn and has a recently constructed garden shed and a paved patio ideal for entertaining/alfresco dining.
The property occupies a highly central location within walking distance of shops and amenities on 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 southeast. 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.
