Situated within the admired Nethermains district of Milngavie, this detached Dormer Bungalow sits proudly upon a generous corner garden of approximately one fifth of an acre.  It affords pleasant outlooks, some to the nearby Craigdhu Wedge (a Conservation Area) across the road.

The subjects fall over two floors, mainly ground floor, and are well proportioned (refer to floor plan) and offer, for those interested, clear scope to extend, both internally and externally (subject to obtaining the necessary planning approvals and consents) and in so doing add value.  As one can see from the photographs and video, the subjects are dated and as such will require a programme of upgrading.  A blank canvas therefore is afforded for the purchaser to import their own style, specification and finish to create a home of their choosing.

It has been a very much-loved family home and has been in the ownership of our client for over five decades– testament to how good a house, and how great a location, it is.  The house has been double glazed with white PVCu framed windows, the bathroom has been made into a ‘Wet Room’ shower room and many years ago a quality German kitchen was installed.  There is mains gas to the property and whilst the living flame coal effect gas fire in the lounge still functions, the former central heating system (warm air) is now redundant, hence the poor energy efficiency rating.


Ground Floor – An attractive entranceway with curved walls; good-sized Hall; spacious Lounge with patio doors to the rear garden; open plan Dining Room which features a corner window arrangement; Kitchen with double aspect and back door, with space for table and chairs; large Bedroom, also with a corner window arrangement; Wet Room with resin floor and fully tiled walls (modern electric shower).

First Floor – A dog leg staircase ascends to an upper Landing with cupboard off and access hatch to eaves storage; Bedroom 2 – a spacious double bedroom with dormer window (good outlook) to the front. Off the bedroom is a cupboard and a very useful, floored attic area which, subject to planning approval, could be made into a fine sized en-suite; Bedroom 3 – a single bedroom with rear facing dormer window.


The garden is far larger than most in the area and sits proudly on the corner of Braefoot Avenue, giving the house an attractive and slightly elevated position.  There is an ‘In-and-Out’ driveway with a section leading off to a detached double garage.  Most of the garden lies to grass but with areas of shrub planting.  There is a long frontage with the side/rear gardens defined by fencing.  A feature stone wall in the rear garden provides a lovely sun trap for a bench.  Timber garden shed.


Braefoot Avenue, in the Nethermains district, is but one mile south of the Village centre and the excellent amenities, including the Railway Station, to be found there.  Even handier are the Waitrose and Aldi stores to be found at Burnbrae.  School catchment is the excellent Craigdhu Primary School with secondary at Douglas Academy, one of the top-performing secondary schools in Scotland.  Also in Milngavie is the newly built Milngavie Early Years Learning Centre and the Preparatory School for The Glasgow Academy.

A fine home and a great opportunity.
