A spectacular stone fronted semi-detached villa, occupying a prominent position at the corner of Burncleuch Avenue and Holmhill Avenue, on a substantial garden plot that is south facing and not directly overlooked at the rear, within the much admired and highly coveted Kirkhill district of Cambuslang.
‘Carsaig’ dates to the turn of the century and is brimming with original character and charm. The current owners have carried out a sympathetic and full restoration programme, at considerable expense, bringing the property up to the highest of modern interiors and creating a remarkable family home that is without question one of the finest to grace the Cambuslang marketplace in recent years.
Notable improvements include tasteful decorative tones in all apartments, restored original floors throughout the majority of the ground floor, the installation of a log burning stove within the rear dining/sitting room, a re-fitted kitchen with a full complement of integral appliances, and more recently the upstairs w.c and bathroom have been professionally re-fitted. The house is double glazed, and the central heating is mains gas through a replacement Ideal Logic combination boiler that was installed approximately four years ago. On the outside, the rear garden has been landscaped to create an extremely safe, low maintenance, and enjoyable family garden, the driveway was redone in cobbled paviours in 2018, the gutters replaced, and side/rear wall elevations re-rendered in 2017, and more recently in 2019, the rear section of the roof was retiled in slate.
In terms of accommodation the property is entered via a large entrance porch opening into a warm and welcoming reception hallway with useful under stair storage and sweeping staircase off to the upper level. There is a magnificent formal lounge with a focal point fireplace, detailed ceiling cornicing/centre rose, and a broad bay window over the garden to front. The impressive sitting/dining room at the rear has a large picture window over the garden, reclaimed oak fire surround with inset freestanding log burner to focal wall, and allows passage through to the adjacent kitchen which in turn gives direct access to the gardens at the rear. The kitchen itself has been extensively fitted with a range of base and wall mounted storage units with contrasting real wood work surface areas, inset sink, and a range of integral appliances including a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer, double AEG oven and gas hob. The large upper landing has a fitted linen cupboard and provides access to three extremely spacious double sized bedrooms; the principal having stripped/stained original flooring and a broad bay window with tremendous open views over the neighbouring district and beyond across the city and toward the Campsie Hills. The accommodation is completed by a contemporary two-piece w.c and main bathroom comprising a white three-piece suite with thermostatic mixer shower over bath.
Outside, the front garden is bounded by low-level walling and there is off-street parking for two cars. The delightful rear garden is also fully enclosed with excellent tree screening at one side and at far end of the garden, both aiding in a good degree of privacy/seclusion. The garden itself has well-manicured lawn area, stone chipped areas and decking ideal for entertaining/alfresco dining. At the far end of the garden there is bespoke shed and side door access to a large garage which fronts onto Holmhill Avenue.
Burncleuch Avenue is widely recognised as one of Old Cambuslang’s premier addresses and sits close to host of amenities including Cambuslang Park, nurseries, schools at both primary and secondary levels, day-to-day shops, and a host of recreational facilities including Cambuslang tennis club and Kirkhill golf course. Kirkhill and Cambuslang train stations are a short walk away; the latter taking approximately 12 minutes to reach Glasgow Central station. In addition to this, there are excellent road links to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network.
