This sprawl­ing man­sion in Thorn­ton­hall boasts space to live, work and re­lax

Straw­ber­ries on the lawn and week­ends of ten­nis await new own­ers of Bealach Mor

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - Real Estate -

SHAR­ING its name with the Bealach Mor 90-mile an­nual cy­cle sportive, (which takes in the ar­du­ous 2,053ft as­cent up the Bealach-na-ba in Wester Ross), this Bealach Mor is a more gen­teel giant, a circa 4,000 sq ft in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed villa in the tucked away vil­lage of Thorn­ton­hall on the south side of Glas­gow.

Oc­cu­py­ing a cor­ner po­si­tion within a cul-de-sac of sim­i­larly stat­uesque prop­er­ties, Bealach Mor’s dis­tin­guish­ing fea­tures in­clude an in­te­gral triple garage and a pro­ject­ing five-sided de­sign el­e­ment that gives the im­pres­sion of a tur­ret.

It also has ma­ture and fully en­closed gar­dens, with neat lawns, paved rear pa­tio, shrubs, trees and planted bor­ders, plus a large monoblock front drive­way lead­ing up to the garage block, which is fronted by three elec­tri­cally op­er­ated doors. In­side, the over­whelm­ing first im­pres­sion is qual­ity, with skirt­ing, ar­chi­traves, in­ter­nal doors and stair­case echo­ing the honey-coloured wood floor­ing. The ground floor lay­out flows from the en­trance hall to a light-filled draw­ing room with the five-sec­tion deep win­dow bay. Dou­ble doors con­nect it to the open-plan dining room and be­spoke fit­ted kitchen, a com­bined space more than 30ft wide with doors to the pa­tio and gar­den at the dining end and a util­ity ad­ja­cent to the kitchen end. Com­plet­ing the ground floor is a fam­ily room, study and shower room. A gallery land­ing on the first floor leads up to five bed­rooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms, while two more share a Jack and Jill-style shower room. Most of the bed­rooms have fit­ted wardrobes, par­tic­u­larly the prin­ci­pal bed­room which has the tur­ret-style bay win­dow, two sets of fit­ted wardrobes and a large shower room. There is also a fully tiled fam­ily bath­room. Spa­cious, el­e­gant and de­signed for easy liv­ing with a state-of-the-art in­te­grated kitchen, which in­cludes an is­land break­fast bar, Bealach Mor is a pres­ti­gious prop­erty in an equally pres­ti­gious vil­lage. Thorn­ton­hall is a tran­quil haven where noise lev­els sel­dom tran­scend the thwack of ten­nis rack­ets com­ing from the lo­cal club in sum­mer.

There are no shops, nor a need for any with Busby, Clark­ston and New­ton Mearns’ sub­urbs all within a few min­utes drive, along with sev­eral golf clubs, a golf range, and the top state schools in Scot­land. How­ever, there is a rail­way sta­tion in the vil­lage, which gives com­muters the op­tion of let­ting the train take the strain rather than the M77 into the city.

Of­fers over £750,000 are in­vited by Coun­try­wide’s Clark­ston of­fice.

DE­TAILS: Honey-coloured wood floor­ing and a be­spoke fit­ted kitchen are among the many finer things in­side the house.
