A substantial four apartment upper conversion of a corner sited detached villa, originally dating from 1900/1910 or thereby. Internally the property retains a wealth of period detailing, most notably original ceiling plasterwork and woodwork but the current owners have sympathetically modernised the property throughout their ownership, which includes: full new slate roof system (approx. 15 years left on the guarantee), rebuilt the entrance porch, new timber sash and casement double glazing, landscaped the gardens, and fitted a security alarm system.
The complete accommodation extends to entrance vestibule/porch, private carpeted staircase to first floor landing/hallway. Substantial dining sized hallway with stained glass feature, fantastic double aspect formal lounge with corner bay window and feature fireplace detail, three versatile double bedrooms, two of which are also double aspect. The kitchen has been transformed by Kitchens International, which includes Leicht units with solid wood doors, Siemens appliances and custom stone worktops. Finally, the refurbished family bathroom offers under floor heating, a stand-alone bath, large walk-in shower enclosure, Porcelenosa tiling and custom built cabinetry.
Externally the property sits within established level corner grounds allowing gated driveway access to single car garage which has been fully lined, floored and has electrical points throughout. There is off street parking for at least 3/4 vehicles. There is an area of level private garden ground to the front, with the rear gardens having been completely landscaped, now being enclosed, with an area of lawn, and a well positioned section of decking which is ideal for sitting / dining.
The property is positioned within walking distance of shops and amenities in central Shawlands. More extensive amenities can be found at the Morrisons’ store at Newlands or Giffnock, the Tesco Express at Shawlands, the Lidl store at Newlands, or the shopping mall at Silverburn/Pollok, a short drive to the South West.
