A stunning award winning architect-designed home.
Ellergreen Road is a private and secluded enclave with no through road. It sits just a few minutes' walk from Bearsden train station and the numerous amenities on offer in the area such as a Co-op convenience store, pub, coffee shop, dentists, medical practice and more. Walking up Drymen Road you come to bustling Bearsden Cross which offers a number of restaurants and many more local facilities.

The local area also offers a wide range of recreational facilities including the Allander Sports Complex, Sports Direct Fitness and Nuffield Health.
There are a number of private schools in the district, with Glasgow Academy, Kelvinside Academy and The High School of Glasgow all on the north side of the city.
Sporting and recreational opportunities abound, with a number of local golf courses, bowling and tennis clubs and the West of Scotland rugby club in the area. Mugdock Country Park and the attractions of Loch Lomond are also within easy reach.
This stunning example of a contemporary architect-designed four bedroom villa was completed approximately two years ago with impeccable attention to detail. Constructed of modern and sustainable materials including handmade Petersen brick. The property has been admired by various architectural publications and has been shortlisted for the Architects Journal UK House of the Year 2021 and the Scottish Design Awards 2021. It was awarded gia house of the year in 2020 after fending off some stiff competition. The house has also heavily featured in Home and Interiors Scotland magazine.
The property offers accommodation over two levels with well-proportioned rooms and imaginatively laid out open plan living areas, set in one of the most desirable locations north of Glasgow.
This impressive stylishly designed modern home benefits from many desirable features including clean lines, high ceilings, large windows and micro concrete floors and walls with underfloor heating throughout. Entered from the front door off the driveway and into the reception hall which carries through the property, living spaces are generally open plan and are cleverly separated by two external Zen gardens which act as features and focal points of the living room, kitchen and sitting room. The open plan kitchen and living area is breathtaking and has large patio doors opening out into the rear garden. The kitchen includes a range of high spec built in appliances, boiling hot water Quooker tap, storage options, breakfast bar and many other distinctive functional details.
The sitting room looks on to the rear garden and has a built in multi fuel stuv stove along with extensive concealed storage and cabinetry, similar to that found in the living room.
Concealed behind what appears to be an American walnut wall are two bedrooms with plenty of built in storage, one of which has a beautiful en suite bathroom. The luxurious family bathroom has a freestanding bath, shower, wash hand basin and WC. A utility and plant room complete the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor comprises the third bedroom with en suite shower room and principal suite with walk in dressing room and en suite bathroom enhanced by beautiful brass fixtures and fittings and high quality Lusso Stone sanitary ware.
The garden to the rear is mainly laid to lawn and is overlooked by mature trees and shrubs providing seasonal colour. An outdoor terrace is accessed off the kitchen along with the external wood store.
At the bottom of the garden there is a private sitting area with a gas fire pit and impressive views over Bearsden, making this the ideal place to sit and relax.
16 Ellergreen Road is real testament to the current owners with the focus on design, comfort and sustainability brilliantly achieved in this exceptional contemporary home.
