Property Description

This individually designed 1930s period home is unquestionably one of the most admired and recognisable properties in Milngavie. Presenting an elegant and impressive façade, the property sits proudly amidst a beautifully landscaped garden, on the corner of Braehead Avenue and Vivian Avenue.

Affording eight full apartments, the property retains some lovely period features, both internally and externally, complimented and, indeed, enhanced by more recent contemporary appointments. The lounge features a classically styled marble fireplace, with Living Flame coal effect gas fire, and there is an Ingleneuk, with superb period Claygate fireplace and two original leaded lancet windows either side in the formal dining room. Connected by original sliding doors and featuring original pine floorboards, these two rooms provide a great entertaining space for guests.

From the generously proportioned upper hall, a French door provides access to a balcony, which leads to a large sun roof terrace, with parapet wall above the ground floor family room and study. From here, fine views are afforded, southwards, over Milngavie.

The property has a wonderful integral garage space, with character roof. This area has excellent scope for reconfiguration into additional kitchen/living space, subject to the necessary Planning Permissions.

Entrance portico, with archway, leading to outer vestibule
