A superbly equipped, finished, and extended early post-war Detached House in Bearsden's Garscube district. With six main apartments (can be three or four bedrooms as required) it has a stunning bespoke, handmade, kitchen along with a quality fitted bathroom, separate shower room, and a utility room all set amidst a very well-tended garden that is south facing to the rear.

The house was extended, and significantly upgraded, in 2009/2010. The extension increased the depth of the house, across the width of the property, and included the roof structure to accommodate the two double bedrooms (bot with box rooms ensuite) and the upstairs shower room.

On the ground floor the immediate impression, and benefit, is the now far larger entrance hall where a beautiful, bespoke, staircase was built by the craftsmen joinery firm Severino Design. They too were commissioned to design and install the handmade kitchen the quality of which will be so evident during a viewing and, hopefully, by virtue of our photographs and video. The sanitary ware, to both the bathroom and the shower room, is high end with both featuring oversized shower enclosures with powerful thermostatic showers and the cosy luxury of underfloor (electric) heating. The kitchen too features under floor heating beneath its beautifully laid limestone tiled floor.

The central heating to the property is mains gas where the Vaillant ecoTECplus 637 system boiler is under a service contract with Scottish Gas. The house is double glazed, including external doors, with uPVC framed units. The three Velux windows are timber framed. The house has a monitored security system which is under a maintenance contract. To the side of the house, and forming part of the extension, is an attached single garage with two garage doors (one to the front, one to the rear).

Decoratively, the subjects are in excellent condition with quality full floorcoverings throughout including self-coloured carpets, tile, and travertine. Internal doors were renewed in 2009/2010 and are panelled, complemented by renewed architraves. There are fireplaces in the three public rooms, the lounge being a particularly impressive Minster style in limestone.

The house is, without question, one of the most impressively presented we have marketed.

Ground Floor

  • Entrance- the feature of this house type is its curved entrance porch accessed here by a very smartly tiled set of front steps.
  • Hall- due to the extension/alterations this is now a very specious first introduction featuring the gorgeous staircase. Hall cupboard.
  • Lounge- a large main public room with feature corner window arrangement plus an original (single glazed) stained leaded lancet window. The limestone fireplace has a living flame gas fire set within a fire basket.
  • Dining Room- entered via glazed double doors (enhances the feeling of space within the hall). This is a fine sized room with a set of French doors to the rear garden. Fire surround with composite stone inlay and hearth at the focal point of the room with an electric fire inset.
  • Living Room (Bedroom 4)- used as a public room but could be a fourth bedroom if needed. Corner window arrangement to match that of the lounge plus another single glazed lancet window. The fire surround has a granite hearth and a cast iron fireplace inset with a living flame coal-effect gas fire.
  • Kitchen- this is, arguably, the main feature of the house. Beautifully executed and handmade by the specialist cabinet-maker firm of Severino Design. Units are of a classic design and finished in cream paint with timber finish internally. The dominant piece is the wonderful walnut tall unit, with curved end doors in which the tall freezer and tall larder fridge are housed. As part of the design is a double-width larder cabinet fitted with shelves and drawers. Worktops, and upstands, are in thick granite into which is set a two-bowl Belfast sink. Appliances include a Lacanche stove cooker (5 gas hobs) with a filter cooker hood above, set into a black glass recess. Integrated Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen is simply a great room.
  • Utility Room- compact but very functional. Modern maple laminate style units. Stainless steel sink. Laundry pulley. Samsung washing machine, Hotpoint tumble dryer. Tiled walls.
  • Bedroom 3- a double-sized ground floor bedroom with rear facing window.
  • Bathroom- all tiled. Classic style suite with an oval bath and an oversized showed enclosure with thermostatic shower (deluge and hand shower heads). Chrome towel radiator.


First Floor

  • Stair- the staircase is a superb piece of work. Wide and curving it has a gorgeous oak handrail and circular topped newel post.
  • Hall- has two hall cupboards. West facing Velux window.
  • Bedroom 1- this has a wide dormer window to the rear (south).
  • Dressing Room- ensuite this is a handy boxroom/dressing room (with radiator) with a West facing Velux window.
  • Bedroom 2- another double bedroom featuring a wide dormer window to the front.
  • Boxroom- ensuite to the bedroom and used as a small office. Hatch door to eaves storage.
  • Shower Room-similarly equipped to the bathroom. Again, all tiled. The oversized showed enclosure also has a thermostatic shower with both deluge and hand shower heads. Chrome towel radiator. Velux window to the east.


There is a well-tended garden which, to the front, has a smart monobloc driveway, for two cars, leading to the garage. Above a brick front garden wall is a lawn with sculpted shrubs. To the side of the driveway is a rendered garden wall and a curved low-level stone wall. A slabbed pathway leads across the front of the house. The rear garden is south facing and has a large stone-flagged sun patio across the back of the house. To the rear of the garage is a monobloc hardstanding area. The rear garden is enclosed by fences to the east and to the south and by a trimmed conifer hedge to the west. The garden is level and has grass with a stone path winding to a large timber garden shed and an aluminium framed greenhouse.


The garage has garage doors to both front and rear, has power and light installed, and has a floored loft space with both loft-ladder access and, very usefully, an electric “hoist” with cable.


The property is in the Garscube district of Bearsden which is on the south-easterly edge of the town. It provides ready road access via Switchback Road or Maryhill Road to Glasgow 's West End and City Centre. For those with children school catchment is Killermont Primary and Boclair Academy. Bearsden is also home to St Nicholas’ Primary and the Junior school of The High School of Glasgow. Bearsden Cross, the heart of the town, is about one mile to the north and here you will find an excellent cross section of shops and services. Bearsden railway station is just over half a mile away and a little further is Hillfoot railway station, both of which provide regular links into the West End and City Centre.
