Fo­cus: East Kil­bride area

The first of Scot­land’s five New Towns, East Kil­bride’s 69-year his­tory has seen it ex­tend out­wards from its roots in the orig­i­nal vil­lage and town cen­tre to form res­i­den­tial precincts, each with its own lo­cal shops, schools and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties. For

DRIV­ING from East Kil­bride, the Strathaven Road cuts through the vil­lage of Chapel­ton, where prop­er­ties in­clude a de­tached, two­s­torey cot­tage dat­ing back to 1857 and con­structed by a master stone builder. This home’s mix of tra­di­tional and mod­ern fea­tures com­bines char­ac­ter with con­ve­nience and in­cludes a few un­ex­pected sur­prises.

A porch leads into a hall, off which is a dou­ble bed­room and spa­cious liv­ing room that ex­tends around the stair­case into a din­ing room – a com­bined open-plan space with win­dows to the front, back and on two sides. Beyond this is a white high-gloss fit­ted break­fast­ing kitchen with doors to both the gar­den and a rear hall, off which is a util­ity, cloak­room – and, fi­nally, an un­ex­pected 20ft games room with French doors to the gar­den.

On the floor above are two fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms and a shower room. One bed­room is ad­ja­cent to a dress­ing room that could be made into another bed­room, if re­quired. Set in at­trac­tive gar­dens with a drive­way and dou­ble garage to the rear, this is a sub­stan­tial fam­ily home in a vil­lage that of­fers easy com­mut­ing – and, con­ve­niently, a new pri­mary school, shop, inn and a nine-hole golf course and 12-bay driv­ing range.

Of­fers over £240,000 are in­vited by Slater Hogg & How­i­son in East Kil­bride.

LO­CATED on the outer edge of East Kil­bride’s Ste­wart­field area, Kit­toch Muir is a quiet res­i­den­tial es­tate de­vel­oped by Redrow Homes in a style more akin to a vil­lage in the East Neuk of Fife, ow­ing to its stone walls and white ren­der house styles.

Num­ber six Castle­hill Green is one of the larger homes, hav­ing been ex­tended and im­proved by its present own­ers to pro­vide over 2000 square feet of fam­ily liv­ing space.

The ground floor of this L-shaped villa in­cludes an en­trance hall lead­ing to a 20ft-din­ing kitchen with util­ity off, cloak­room, din­ing room and ad­ja­cent lounge – both with pa­tio door ac­cess to the gar­den.

There is also a study off the hall, which opens into a fam­ily room with gar­den ac­cess. Up­stairs are four bed­rooms, two of which have en suite fa­cil­i­ties, and main fam­ily bath­room. It is for sale with Co­rum’s Nether­lee branch at of­fers over £299,000.
