An impressive traditional red sandstone semi-detached villa set within a sought-after pocket of Cathcart. The property has been thoughtfully upgraded, modernised, and reconfigured by the current owners to offer flexible accommodation with original features and a contemporary twist.
The ground floor accommodation has been completely transformed, now comprising; broad entrance hallway with two useful storage cupboards and staircase which sweeps to the upper level, stunning front facing lounge with bay window offering views over the gardens and a lovely feature fireplace. To the rear, the former dining room, kitchen and pantry have been combined to offer a lovely open space which is well suited to modern day living. There is a sitting area with log burning stove, a modern kitchen with broad range of units, quality integrated appliances and island, with two steps down to a lovely bright dining area with bifold doors allowing access to the gardens.
The upper level has also been altered to host 3 large double bedrooms (originally 4 bedrooms), a main family bathroom with white suite and separate shower enclosure, and there is an en-suite shower room off the main bedroom which is well appointed. The attic space has been floored and lined with two skylights, which is accessed by way of a drop-down ladder from the landing.
The specification includes gas central heating, double glazing, and fresh decorative finishes. A number of period features have been retained: most noticeably, cornice detail, deep skirtings, original panelled doors, and wooden floors.
Externally, a mono block driveway provides off street parking, with gated access. Garden grounds are level and beautifully maintained, with ease of maintenance in mind. Rear gardens are surprisingly private, fully enclosed and offer fantastic outdoor entertaining space and alfresco dining.
The property is positioned within walking distance of shops and amenities upon Old Castle Road and Clarkston Road, where a number of coffee shops, restaurants and delicatessens can be found. More extensive amenities are available at the Sainsbury store on Clarkston Road, Asda store at Toryglen and Morrisons stores at Newlands or Giffnock. The shopping mall at Silverburn is a short drive to the West.
Recreational pursuits are varied including well maintained municipal parks, health clubs/gyms and golf courses both public and private.
Schooling is available locally at primary and secondary levels. There is an excellent primary school (St. Fillans) approximately 200 yards walk.
