**closing date Tuesday 5th October @ 12 noon** Set on a particularly nice garden plot in one of Burnside's premier addresses, sits this outstanding red sandstone mid terraced villa offering well balanced and versatile family accommodation within five principal apartments formed over two levels, with the added advantage of a substantial floored and 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 contemporary bath/shower room and separate toilet compartment. The property has many period features on display, including box panelled doors and several original timber sash windows with stained leaded glass inserts. The windows to front have secondary glazing, and all others double glazed. The central heating is mains gas operating through a highly efficient Worcester combination boiler that was installed in 2019.
The property has a traditional layout with glazed storm doors and a handy entrance vestibule opening into a warm and welcoming reception hallway with useful under stair storage and original staircase leading to the upper floor. There is an elegant lounge with fireplace detail to focal wall and broad bay window to the front, a comfortable dining/sitting room at the rear with a focal point cast iron fireplace and an adjacent open plan fitted kitchen with door giving direct access to the gardens at the rear. The kitchen itself was professionally re-fitted approximately eight years ago and features real woodwork surface areas, an integral fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, eye level oven, microwave, and gas hob. The original sweeping staircase leads to the first-floor level and three double size bedrooms: The principal having a broad bay window and bedroom two, views across the neighbouring lawns of Burnside Tennis Club. There is a toilet compartment and a separate bathroom comprising a corner bath, shower enclosure and sink. A fixed stair from the upper hallway gives access to a sizeable landing/potential study/work from home area, and a fantastic attic room with Velux window and excellent eaves storage.
Outside, the front gardens have been laid out with ease of maintenance in mind and are bounded by perimeter walling/wrought iron fencing with gate and pathway to the front vestibule. The delightful rear garden incorporates a level lawn with a variety of bordering shrubs/plants, paved pathways, and seating area at the far end, all of which are enclosed by timber fencing/privet hedging and combine to create an extremely safe and enjoyable family garden. In addition, there is cellar storage with power/lighting and beyond the private lane at the rear, there is a further area that offers off-street parking or the potential to erect a garage/outhouse (subject to obtaining the relevant consents).
Highburgh Drive is widely recognised as one of Burnside's premier addresses and sits 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 southeast. Recreational pursuits within the general area include well maintained parks, tennis court on Viewpark Drive, golf courses, gyms, and excellent schooling at both primary and secondary levels. There are excellent bus links to the City Centre with Burnside Railway Station only a short distance from the property. In addition, 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.
