SCHOOLS close this week for the annual summer break – but not so for the smattering of former schools that enjoy newfound status as family homes. Here are three that score top marks for imaginative conversion …
BUILT circa 1860 as Killearn Primary School, Garloch is now a very attractive red sandstone family home in the conservation village of Killearn with views across open countryside to the Campsie Fells.
Garloch’s accommodation spans around 2,000ft over two levels and an additional 43ft by25ft fully floored attic space.
This home’s unique selling point is a 40ft dual aspect living/dining/kitchen with blonde maple flooring and contemporary cream gloss fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and a breakfast bar. Downstairs are also a bathroom and adjoining bedroom/ office with French doors to the garden. Upstairs the three double bedrooms all have en-suite facilities.
Garloch has driveway parking, detached double garage and attractive south-facing gardens and is close to all village amenities. Killearn is also in the catchment area for Balfron High School and offers easy commuting to both Glasgow and Stirling. Offers over £350,000 are sought by Clyde Property in Bearsden.
