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