Den of tranquillity
follows the lines of the Antonine Wall. This house has a drawing room, sitting room, study, dining kitchen, cloakroom, laundry/utility and a 30ft side extension (currently a garden/ dining room) with windows on three sides and French doors to the garden. Upstairs are four spacious double bedrooms (one en suite) and bathroom, while a fixed staircase provides access to a sizable floored and lined attic. Tantallon is for sale at offers over £725,000.
Chesters Road, in Old Bearsden, is another sought after locale. Craigvilla, at No.6, is an unusual property, built in colonial style on a corner plot of three-quarters of an acre with a sweeping driveway and an abundance of mature trees. The six-bedroomed house features a secluded 28ft outdoor heated swimming pool within the fully enclosed rear garden, where there is also a woodland area and a water feature linking two ponds. With more than 4000 sq ft of space, Craigvilla includes a 32ft formal lounge with two fireplaces and French doors to an adjoining garden room. Although requiring modernisation, it has some exceptionally fine period features, including wood panelling, stained glass windows, ornate plasterwork and original fireplaces. Slater Hogg & Howison’s Bearsden office is seeking offers in the region of £675,000.
Bearsden’s mix includes more recent new-build developments. One that is ongoing is Academy Grove on Morven Road, where Bett Homes has traditional-style four and five-bedroom villas with designer kitchens, integrated appliances, contemporary bathrooms and sliding-door wardrobe systems. Prices range from £430,000 to £599,000.
Westpoint Homes has plans for a development on the site of the former Scotus College between Thorn Road and Chesters Road. With the first properties likely to be ready for completion in August, the new Scotus College will comprise a variety of house styles ranging from detached family homes to refurbished and new-build apartments and a stable conversion.
