Designed by Anderson Bell + Christie, award-winning architects of Glasgow, the property provides striking facades of smooth render, galvanised steel, feature travertine wall, and western red cedar with grey coloured windows and doors (all double glazed), set underneath a zinc standing seam mono-pitched roof. Utilising the sloping topography of the garden the front elevation presents three storey with the rear elevation two storey (see floor plans for layout). The house is flooded with light by virtue of lots of windows including the features of corner window configurations in the lounge and main bedroom along with cleverly placed horizontal and vertical “pillar box” windows as design features.


Throughout, the property is heated via the luxury of piped, mains gas, under floor heating which combined with very high levels of insulation makes this a warm and easy to run home.


This is a unique, cool, contemporary, and very individually designed house that will strike a chord with many. It will suit couples, families, and even individuals. We hope that the photographs, video, and virtual tour will convey all that it offers but truly we would recommend that clients should view to fully appreciate the house.

The plot is on a sloping site from front up to rear. At the foot, fronting the pavement is a stone wall with a mature Beech hedge above. A tarmac drive leads up to the house and to the garage with a pathway to the front door. From the driveway a wide area of grass to create a side garden which continues up to the rear garden where it becomes level across the back of the house – acces to this directly from the office via the patio doors. Beyond this area is two-level level sun deck. Behind this is a planted bank with shrubs and some trees with a slabbed path around the perimeter. The garden has a fence to No.106, a bank of laurels planted to screen from No.102, and at the rear a fence/hedge.


Garden Pod/Hut


A really rather trendy arched garden pod with full curved perspex roof, for light, provides a cool retreat for a coffee/drink, and a read. Really comes into its own in spring and summer. Power and light.
