This fantastic, four bedroom, blonde sandstone, semi-detached villa is located in one of the West End’s most popular family spots in Partickhill.
A magnificent semi-detached stone villa full of period features in a traditional residential area where there is only a small number of properties of this type. One of the most popular areas of the West End, Banavie Road is perfectly located to enjoy all the West End, Hyndland and Partickhill has to offer. The private driveway professionally finished with Marshall’s Tegula Drivesett leads up to the house and gives parking for several cars. Adjacent to the driveway, the private front garden is a lawned area surrounded by beds, trees and hedging with a boundary wall in brick that continues up to the rear gardens. The Drivesett paving continues through the side gate past the new log lap 8 x 6 shed to the back patio area adjacent to the utility door. Steps lead up to the well maintained private rear garden with raised patio, mowed lawn area and surrounding beds, enclosed by hedging and boundary wall at rear.
The traditional panelled and glazed front door enters to a spacious and bright reception hall, with solid oak oiled flooring supplied and professionally installed by Strathearn Stone and Timber Limited running seamlessly throughout the main house downstairs. Complete with ornate ceiling cornice and ceiling rose, the hallway leads to the lounge where the traditional three paned bay window with functioning shutters has an outlook to the front gardens and driveway with views beyond. The main focal point is the traditional fireplace with gas fire insert, jade green slate hearth and oak hearth surround complemented by matching open shelved alcoves either side. Original features are the ceiling coving, picture rail and deep skirting.
At the rear of the house is the large open plan dining kitchen with windows onto the back garden. The Geoff Chater classic hand built kitchen with under lights and integrated fridge has Iroko worktops on the L-run and Verde Bahia granite worktop on the island, a Vileroy & Boch Belfast sink, Neff oven and hob and an AGS cooker hood. The traditional fireplace has a marble hearth and tiles matching the style of those in the kitchen and an alcove with open shelving alongside. Deep skirting and a picture rail is fitted throughout and further storage is offered by the large walk in cupboard.
The doorway in the corner opens to the utility room which is plumbed for a washing machine and dishwasher, and complete with a clothes pulley, quarry tiled floor, space for a tumble dryer, storage units and white worktop, sink and drainer with Everest double glazed window above. The gas fired Worcester Bosch Greenstar Combi Boiler with a programmable room thermostat (manufacturer guarantee until 2032) is wall mounted at the the far end. Direct access to the rear garden is via the wooden kitchen door.
The downstairs WC has a two piece suite and high quality durable Marmorette flooring supplied and professionally installed by Cameron Bell flooring. Additional storage is provided by the under stair cupboard at the rear of the hallway with shelving and cloak space.
The sweeping original stair with ornate cast iron and wooden banister leads to the spacious upper landing which gives access to four well-proportioned double bedrooms and contemporary family bathroom with bath and separate shower. The eight paned opaque cupola with surrounding coloured panels lets natural daylight shine in making it light and airy, showcasing the ornate cornicing. The stair carpet continues through the upper landing and continues through all the bedrooms.
The principal bedroom was the original drawing room of the house and as such, has traditional features such as substantial ornate ceiling cornice and ceiling rose, picture rail, a corner shelved press, deep skirting and a focal point fireplace in marble with attached insert. The three paned bay window with working shutters provides ample daylight and has an outlook of the front garden over Banavie Road. Two of the bedrooms have double glazed sash and casement timber windows, all shutters are functioning. All single glazing and the front door are draught proofed.
