One of the original Victorian homes, built soon after the railway came to Bearsden (circa 1863), this is a grand and handsome stone house that was purposely built as a Lower and Upper Villa. For sale, is the Upper Villa – a property of considerable style and character and of a generous scale, occupying as it does the entire first floor along with a private ground floor entrance hall and front door. It has a sizeable area of private gardens and gravel driveway, entered via substantial stone gate posts, with gates, at the end of which is its garage (wider than standard single). The entire garden is enclosed by hedging and fencing for natural screening.
There is so much to admire about this home, and it is one that should fine broad appeal – from professional couples to downsizers and even families it should attract many. It has a wonderfully convenient location, opposite Bearsden’s South Church, about 150m south of Bearsden Cross and therefore one could not be handier for the Shops, Restaurants, Cafes, and services to be found there as well as for Bearsden Railway Station which is only some 200m away on Station Road.
As clients will see from our floor plan the subjects are of a generous scale and from the imagery that it is in excellent condition. In the lounge the original marble fireplace has been retained, there is original plaster cornicing in most areas. Gorgeous, varnished floorboards are featured in the hallway, landing, reception hall and lounge. In all rooms the original Victorian panelled pine doors are kept. All adds to the style and ambiance of the home.
