5 Huntly Avenue, Giffnock, Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, G46 6LP

5 2 4


A wonderful red sandstone bungalow offering most expansive accommodation and fabulous, highly private garden grounds sitting adjacent to Huntly Park.

This is a sizeable family home within a locally admired Giffnock address ensuring easy access to a wide variety of local amenities including the famed main street and highly regarded primary and secondary schooling.   We believe that this is the only bungalow n Huntly Avenue that was built with original dormer windows and explains the enhanced apartment size on the upper level.

The property offers an excellent selection of traditionally sized apartments which offer great flexibility and include five generously sized bedrooms. The house has been well-maintained by the previous owner though some buyers will look to modernise and utilise more open plan space to create an exceptional family home.

The property is formed over two levels comprising as follows: entrance vestibule, broad reception hall with fitted storage, front facing lounge with box bay window, rear facing formal dining room and further sitting room. The fitted breakfasting kitchen has pantry storage and provides access to the utility room and WC. The garden room offers additional public space and features French doors providing views of and access to the rear gardens. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with a box bay window and the fifth which is currently used as a home office. The ground floor accommodation is completed by the family shower room.

The upper-level landing leads to three further substantial bedrooms featuring extensive fitted storage and a further walk-in cupboard. The front facing bedroom is especially impressive and benefits from a re-fitted en-suite bathroom with decorative tiling.

Whilst retaining many traditional features, the specification also includes mainly double glazing and gas central heating with the basement providing further storage space.

This premier position within Huntly Avenue ensures substantial garden grounds that provide a high degree of privacy. The walled gardens to the front are mainly chipped and feature an expansive block driveway providing an abundance of off-street parking, extending further past the car port at the side of the property and towards the detached garage. The rear gardens are low maintenance in nature with a delightful terrace being a wonderful space from which to enjoy summer evenings. The remaining garden grounds are mainly laid to lawn with mature hedging providing the aforementioned privacy.

This quiet no-through road is within the centre of Giffnock and has long proven popular with the discerning family buyer due to the proximity to a wide variety of adjacent facilities and amenities. Crucially, this area benefits from highly regarded primary and secondary schooling. Giffnock offers a very high standard of amenities with local shopping, up market bars and restaurants and for commuters there are excellent road and rail networks with the local Giffnock train station ensuring speedy commute to Glasgow City Centre and beyond.  The property is also ideally located for Huntly Park which provides an excellent space for children and families and also dog walking.
