Built around 1900, this truly stunning five bedroom detached villa is a particularly fine example of late Victorian architecture and lies within one of Milngavie’s foremost cul de sac addresses. Retaining a number of attractive period features, the home has been upgraded and reconfigured by our clients including the creation of a newly installed kitchen open to dining room and also, a master bedroom with en suite. With eight principal apartments formed over two levels of three public rooms and five bedrooms, this impressive period villa is tucked away towards the end of this peaceful yet convenient cul de sac, a short stroll from the wide array of amenities on offer in the traffic free town centre of Milngavie. Milngavie itself offers a range of shops, supermarkets, banks, doctors surgery and Post Office and is home to excellent schooling at all levels. For those wishing private school tuition, the junior school campuses of The Glasgow Academy and The High School of Glasgow can be found on Mugdock Road, Milngavie and Ledcameroch Road, Bearsden, respectively. There are a choice of nearby sports centres including the Nuffield Health Sports and Raquets Club, a choice of golf clubs, hockey, tennis and squash clubs and the area is home to a number of attractive walking routes including those which circle the Allander and Craigmaddie Reservoirs as well as the starting point to the West Highland Way.
