A rare opportunity to acquire this locally admired and handsome period detached bungalow, built around 1929, set within a generous and private plot with elegantly proportioned accommodation, located in one of Glasgow’s most coveted residential neighbourhoods, close to popular schools, Rouken Glen Park and Williamwood train station.
Occupying a slightly elevated position, this fine home, available for the first time in over fifty years, retains much of its original charm and character and is distinguished by the stone detailing and harled render under a pitched slate roof, set within wonderful garden grounds of around one acre.
The flexible accommodation is formed over the ground floor and attic levels, extending to around 4317 Sqft (401 Sqm), well maintained by the present owners.
At present the complete accommodation extends to:
Ground Floor: A covered entrance leads to the entrance vestibule. Impressive and welcoming reception hall. Generous oriel bay window sitting room with fireplace and aspects over the expansive gardens. Spacious bay window lounge with fireplace and door connecting to the 36’ sunroom, enjoying lovely aspects over the garden grounds. Formal wood panelled dining room. Four double bedrooms. House family bathroom. The breakfasting room connects to the snug/office, kitchen and an additional bathroom. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted cabinets and complementary worktops.

The grounds provide privacy and shelter with expansive lawns, tennis court, garden sheds, an air raid shelter and terrace.
