This impressive Detached Villa dates back to the 18th century and is situated in an established setting with large, private gardens, attractive outlooks over countryside and yet is within convenient distance of some excellent amenities.

The property is traditionally constructed with blonde sandstone beneath a pitched, natural slate roof and has an excellent layout of apartments over two storeys with the majority of accommodation on the ground level.

The current owners have also built a large double garage finished with blonde stone and render beneath a steep natural slate roof. The top half of the garage has a window to the front, has been floored and lined, is accessed via folding ladder and would make an excellent ready built home office.

The front garden is accessed via chipstone driveway with good sized elevated lawn and patio area at one side . At the rear is a further garden area which is enclosed and comprises a patio area and a further lawn.

As the floor plan shows there is also a large integral garage which the owners have planning to convert into further living accommodation which would enhance the overall floor are to c. 2500 sq ft which means comfortable family accommodation.

The current layout comprises entrance hallway with open stairs to the upper level and at the far side access to a lovely modern downstairs bathroom comprising roll top bath, wash hand basin and w.c.

At the far side of the property is the main lounge/dining area which is an excellent size and has, at the focal point, a large solid fuel burner and fireplace. There are three windows, quality carpet and from here a further open hallway with second fireplace gives access to the rear utility kitchen.

This large area has a fantastic range of modern storage units with Belfast sink, door directly to the rear garden and also access to the aforementioned garage which is where some clever integration of this space could be carried out.

The main kitchen area is beautifully laid out and has a large open central space for dining or breakfasting table, plenty of worktop area with storage units and focal range cooker.

The sitting room is ideally positioned at the far side of the house and has a feature vaulted ceiling, windows to bot sides and a further access to the rear garden.

On the upper level there is a large landing area with quality carpet which gives access to three bedrooms, master with en suite shower room.

The property is heated with gas central heating.

Nerston is extremely convenient for a variety of local amenities with local retail park Kingsgate offering Sainsburys, Nike, Halfords, Marks and Spencer amongst others with a choice of eateries and frequent road and rail links to Glasgow, East Kilbride, Hamilton and the rest of the central belt. Popular primary and secondary schooling is within easy reach.
