The gen­er­a­tion gain...

Two din­ing kitchens in an ex­ten­sive pe­riod home make this an ideal buy for an ex­tended fam­ily

MOUNT Annan Drive is a sought after ad­dress on the south side of Glas­gow renowned for the size and cal­i­bre of de­tached and semide­tached sand­stone pe­riod vil­las more com­monly as­so­ci­ated with the city’s West End.

Ex­tend­ing from King’s Park up and over the hill to Mount Florida at the other end – res­i­den­tial ar­eas with good schools and trans­port fa­cil­i­ties – num­ber 110 Mount Annan Drive is a larger-style semi-villa with a cor­ner set­ting that gives it a com­mand­ing pres­ence – and with ac­com­mo­da­tion spread over three lev­els, this is a fam­ily home ide­ally suited for three gen­er­a­tions in their own space un­der one roof.

Dat­ing from 1910, this stylish home­has been care­fully mod­ernised and up­graded to re­tain orig­i­nal pe­riod fea­tures whilst en­sur­ing the over­all look is fresh and con­tem­po­rary – no­tably so in the re­cep­tion hall, where the orig­i­nal dark wood pan­elling is painted a neu­tral cream shade.

For­merly a manse, the present owner has re­stored all the fire­places (all with tiled in­serts and work­ing open fires), while the stained glass win­dows – works of art all signed by the artist – have been pro­fes­sion­ally dou­ble-glazed.

The most amaz­ing win­dow is in the first floor bath­room, where be­hind the roll-top bath, the stained glass de­picts a lady dip­ping her toe into wa­ter.

The lay­out is par­tic­u­larly adapt­able – down­stairs are bay win­dowed lounge and fam­ily room/fifth bed­room, sit­ting room, fully tiled shower room, open-plan kitchen/din­ing room and util­ity with pa­tio ac­cess.

On the floor above is a sit­ting/din­ing room (with or­nate stained glass fea­ture win­dow and pe­riod fire­place), sec­ond din­ing kitchen – with ac­cess to a pretty south-fac­ing rear bal­cony over­look­ing the gar­den and eas­ily large enough for al fresco din­ing – two bed­rooms and bath­room with sep­a­rate shower. The top floor houses the mas­ter bed­room, which has a full wall of built-in stor­age, deep dormer re­cess and ad­join­ing bath­room, plus an ad­di­tional store­room.

This prop­erty’s set­ting pro­vides panoramic views and in­cor­po­rates a level, south-fac­ing rear gar­den with a lawn and paved pa­tio. There is also a grav­elled drive­way lead­ing to a de­tached garage.

Im­mac­u­lately pre­sented through­out and only a few min­utes walk from Mount Florida pri­mary school, it is for sale with Slater Hogg & How­i­son’s Burn­side of­fice at of­fers over £425,000.

Of­fers over £425k

FINE LIV­ING: Those wish­ing to cook and dine up­stairs can en­joy al fresco meals and cock­tails on the ter­race.
