**closing date Friday 10th June @ 12 noon** ‘Ardmorag’ is a rather substantial, and utterly charming, red sandstone semi-detached villa that dates from around the turn of the century and occupies a lovely, established garden plot within one of Rutherglen’s premier addresses that falls within the school catchment area for Calderwood Primary and Stonelaw High.

The house is brimming with original character and charm, and offers an extremely versatile five apartment layout, spread across two levels and with a generous footprint of around 151 sq. M (1,625 sq. Ft). Over the years the house has been lovingly maintained and improved, with recent works including replacement fascias and gutters, along with a retiled section of the roof above the utility room at the rear. The specification includes double glazing and warmth is provided by a system of gas fired central heating with a Baxi combination boiler. Early internal inspection is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

In terms of accommodation the property comprises an enclosed porch opening into a warm and welcoming reception hallway with useful under stair store cupboard and sweeping staircase leading off to the upper level. There is a magnificent formal lounge with decorative ceiling plasterwork, cornicing/centre rose, and a broad bay window over the gardens to the front. The dining/sitting room or potential fourth bedroom is side facing and sits adjacent to a large and extensively fitted breakfasting kitchen which allows passage through to a good-sized utility room with door direct to the gardens at the rear. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well-appointed shower room. The original stair leads to the upper landing which provides access to three spacious double sized bedrooms; two of which have original fireplaces in situ, and bedroom two has the convenience of a walk-in wardrobe. The main house bathroom features a modern three-piece suite with jacuzzi bath and electric shower over.

Outside, the front and side gardens are well screened and enclosed with mature hedging and trees, which offer a good degree of privacy and seclusion. The lawn areas within the front and rear gardens are meticulously maintained and at the rear, there is access to an external store, shed and an enclosed patio area. There is also an off-street parking space and an adjacent brick-built garage, both of which can be accessed from a private lane that runs along the rear of the property.

The property is quietly situated within a sought-after pocket in Rutherglen and is conveniently placed for access to a host of local amenities including schools at both Primary and Secondary levels, shops, and public transport services. Nearby Rutherglen Main Street and Stonelaw Road provide a more extensive range of amenities including supermarkets, bars, restaurants, and train stations for easy commuting to Glasgow City Centre and the surrounding areas. In addition to this, there are excellent road links close by giving easy access to Glasgow City Centre and the Central Belt motorway network.

The Energy Performance rating on this property is Band D.
