32 Cotton Street, Balfron, Glasgow, G63 0PG

4 2 2


Forming part of a hugely imaginative conversion of the old Balfron High School, this impressive and architecturally distinct home is finished to an exacting standard and boasts an unassumingly spacious footprint across six primary apartments, with a floor area of over 1,804 ft². A seamless marriage of traditional aesthetic/modern convenience and the perfect semi-rural living arrangement for those looking for something a bit different.

The old Balfron schoolhouse was successfully converted a number of years ago and transformed into two spacious semi-detached properties. Great imagination and expert building work has clearly gone towards creating what now sits, with No.32 Cotton Street a really superb home that would suit a wide and varied audience. To its front elevation, the property features a charming red sandstone frontage. The rear elevation gives a fuller representation of the space on offer here, with off street parking provided via a driveway (which also leads into the integral garage).

Internally, the accommodation is spread over three primary levels and provides a great deal of versatility. Without doubt, the heart of the home lies in the substantial living/dining/kitchen space – an area that extends to almost 9 metres in length. As mentioned the specification is really strong, with some highlights including:- NorDan windows and doors, zoned underfloor heating (ground floor), passive venting throughout, engineered flooring, and quality appliances and work surfaces in the kitchen. There is a real sense of natural light to be found around the property, with multi aspect windows and doors and high ceilings cleverly placed around the property. Another key feature sits in the notably generous storage, with multiple large cupboards/cavities cleverly/discreetly placed at various points throughout.

Our suite of HDR images, 360° immersive tour, HD video and floorplan will allow for thorough desktop appraisal of the property, with a summary of the accommodation to be found as follows:-
