Mane at­trac­tion

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - News -

I WAS re­cently given an enjoyable pre-launch tour of Mac­tag­gart & Mickel’s im­pres­sive new showhome at Red Lion.

This is a niche devel­op­ment of only 17 houses just off Mearns Road within a long-es­tab­lished area of New­ton Mearns (a sub­urb which was largely built orig­i­nally by Mac­tag­gart & Mickel, which is now a fourth gen­er­a­tion fam­ily-owned firm).

The Inch­colm showhome, exquisitely de­signed by in­te­rior de­signer Gerry Burke, is new, quite ex­cep­tional and unique to this devel­op­ment, in­spired by the many bun­ga­lows Mac Mic built in the 1930s and ’40s.

This bun­ga­low hy­brid has four bed­rooms, sep­a­rate din­ing room, sec­ond sit­ting room, and spa­cious kitchen which is fully open to a sun­room with ac­cess to the rear garden.

There is also a ground floor fam­ily bath­room and en suite bed­room which is in keep­ing with the one-level tra­di­tion.

Up­stairs, the sec­ond bed­room has en suite fa­cil­i­ties and there is also a shower room.

This is Mac Mic at its ab­so­lute best, and the Inch­colm has com­pletely won me over – they even have chim­neys.

The showhome is open for view­ing (a must) and prices here range from £409,995 to £594,995.

ROAR­ING SUC­CESS: The im­pres­sive Red Lion showhome at Mac­tag­gart & Mickel’s Mearns Road devel­op­ment is in­spired by the firm’s bun­ga­low de­sign from the 1940s.
