Boclair Crescent is one of the prime addresses in Bearsden, home to high-value properties of individual design and mixed architectural period. For sale is this five/six bedroomed Detached House that dates, we understand, from the late 1940s that is set amidst a particularly private, and quite generous, gardens approx. 0.3 acre. The original house would have fallen over one level but now has accommodation over two floors, the former roof space having been developed some years ago by the vendors. As clients will see from the floorplans the subjects provide a generous array of rooms which could be used as anything from four to seven bedrooms as needs may require. Also, from the floorplans one will note the sizable basement/cellar area which, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, could offer scope to create additional accommodation. Currently this area has four distinct rooms, all with good ceiling heights and provide a great area for workshops, laundry or simply storage. All extremely accessible.

This has been the happiest of family homes for our clients for nearly four decades and simply a wish to downsize prompts the move. One will clearly see from our imagery the property is a well-cared for home and has been the recipient of much investment, and many upgrades, over the years. It will undoubtedly also be a great family home for the next owners, the property’s location benefiting from being handy for the nearby Killermont Primary and Boclair Academy schools (Boclair Academy are having a new £40M + school premises built). Also in Bearsden is The High School of Glasgow Junior School and St. Nicholas’ Primary.
