Lochview is an architecturally designed, bespoke property, sitting within a substantial circa. one acre plot, with some of the most outstanding views that East Dunbartonshire has to offer, owing to its loch side location.
The property is situated within the beautifully mature and leafy grounds of Bardowie Castle and is accessed via a tree lined boulevard running parallel to Bardowie Loch, which is reputedly Scotland’s longest, private, lime tree avenue, providing access to only seven exclusive properties in a wonderfully picturesque setting.
This is a wonderful location for families looking to establish themselves in the countryside, yet, is only a stone’s throw from both Bearsden and Milngavie and within easy reach of Glasgow City Centre and the motorway network.
The small hamlet of Bardowie is a conservation village, with the castle, built in 1566, and loch being the main attractions. The loch hosts a dingy sailing club, which forms part of the Clyde Cruising Club. Also located close by, off Station Road, is a tennis club.
Lochview is a spacious and enviable six bedroom family home, positioned on the northern shores of Bardowie Loch. Built in 1992, Lochview is the showpiece property within an intimate courtyard development of three sizeable properties. The striking setting, within the former grounds of Bardowie Castle, includes 0.56 acres of shared loch frontage.
Lochview was designed in the appearance of Georgian architecture and the position is such that the views across Bardowie Loch can be enjoyed from almost every room. Lochview also has shared access and sailing rights to the loch and adjacent slipway and is a haven for wildlife and outdoor pursuits.
The property enjoys wonderful grounds, extending to circa. one acre. The immaculately kept gardens are mainly laid to lawn and include a patio next to the entertaining suite. There is a large wooden built outhouse, with power and light installed, featuring a full size pool table, which will be included in the sale. Electric gates open, via a Videx video telecom entry system, and a sweeping driveway is illuminated by dusk and dawn post lighting. A tarmacadam drive also leads to a courtyard at the rear, where further parking is provided.
The main entrance opens to a welcoming entrance hall, with downstairs cloaks/WC, and French doors open to a formal lounge, which is set around a central log burning fire, beyond which is a fully fitted coffee bar, with Corian surfaces, plumbed for a coffee machine and featuring a sink and fridge. Passing the dining room, there is a dining kitchen and family room, formed around a beautiful Corian table, providing a sociable hub and featuring Corian surfaces and a choice of electric or gas cooking hobs by De Dietrich. The adjoining utility room provides access to the rear courtyard and the far end of the house offers a large entertaining suite, with two sets of French doors, beyond which is a garden room, overlooking the lawned grounds. These two rooms could effectively be utilised as a self-contained apartment for those with a dependent relative or as an ideal older child’s quarters, as there is an adjoining shower room and a second fixed staircase leading to two further rooms, in the form of a sitting room and adjoining bedroom.
Upstairs, there are five further double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. Three of the bedrooms feature en-suite facilities, with the master including shower with steam function. Finally, there is a family shower room, servicing the remaining bedrooms. Each of the shower room feature under floor heating.
