'The Grange' is a distinctive, detached, 'C' listed, blonde sandstone villa located in the sought-after Newlands Conservation Area. This beautifully proportioned and generously sized grandiose villa, built in 1898, is well maintained throughout with original features of character and quality, and is set within quiet, mature gardens.
The property is entered through double storm doors into entrance vestibule, which leads into the parquet floored, light and airy reception hallway. There is a large west facing formal lounge to the front of the property with a lovely double aspect and impressive walk in bay window and original Victorian oak period fireplace. There is easy access from the lounge to the kitchen via the adjoining butler's pantry. The second west facing reception room has a large bay window, period granite fireplace and ceiling. The third reception room has views over the back garden, and gives access to the fourth reception room, which has French door access to the rear garden.
The fitted kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units and integrated appliances, and gives access to the scullery with butlers bells and Victorian sink. Stairs from the scullery lead up to the former maid's quarters, but today is a marble bathroom with a modern period three piece bathroom suite. Completing the lower level accommodation is a contemporary tiled shower room.
On the first floor, there are four excellent sized double bedrooms. Bedrooms one and two boast bay windows, and bedrooms three and four have open views over the rear garden with the latter benefitting from a wealth of built in storage. A large linen cupboard room contains a floor to ceiling, oak Victorian storage unit and can be accessed from the landing, as can the third bathroom with three piece bathroom suite with Jacuzzi bath and over bath shower. Completing the accommodation is an extensive fifth bedroom, accessed via wooden stairway from the first floor hallway. Bedroom five benefits from a built in dressing area.
Externally, the extensive grounds are entered through electric gates to the front of the property. There are mature gardens to the front, sides and rear, as well as a detached single garage and a large driveway with parking for multiple vehicles. The property can also be access through gates to the rear.
Langside Drive itself is set within the heart of Newlands, one of Glasgow South's most admired suburbs. The neighbourhood embraces several parks, cafes, restaurants and sports facilities. A more extensive variety of amenities, including cosmopolitan bars, restaurants, high street shopping and cinemas, can be found on local Kilmarnock Road, Netherauldhouse Road and nearby Silverburn and Braehead shopping complexes. Local schooling is a short distance away.
There are frequent bus and rail links to provide swift access to Glasgow City Centre and destinations further afield, as well as easy access to the M8, M74 and M77 motorway networks with ready access to Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow City Centre.
