- Council Tax Band: G
This handsome blonde sandstone villa occupies a fantastic location at the heart of the village. The property offers deceptively spacious accommodation over three levels and has a particularly versatile configuration of apartments. The property has undergone extensive refurbishment with the works stopped at a point where the purchaser will be able to complete their own decorations throughout.
The house has an amazing history having played host to a variety of musicians including Sir Rod Stewart, Wet Wet Wet, The Pogues, Seal, Lisa Stansfield and many more. The property formally had a recording studio in the basement where all these artists have recorded music.
The accommodation is arranged across three levels. The ground floor has a suitably grand reception hallway at its centre with an impressive staircase leading up to the upper landing and a spiral staircase leading down to the basement area. At either side of the hallway there are a pair of similarly proportioned public rooms. Both rooms have the high ceilings and large windows for which these properties are so desired. In addition, they have had extensive work done to the cornices to restore the property to its former glory.
Another nicely proportioned room at the back of the house would serve equally well as another public room or double bedroom. The kitchen is also at the back of the house and has been fitted with a stylish hand painted units, with feature island, and stone worksurfaces. One wall of the kitchen has been stripped back to the original stone work creating an impressive feature wall. To the rear of the property there is a porch which is currently set up as a laundry room, while a modern shower room completes the accommodation on the ground floor.
The first floor has had a similar level of restoration and improvement to the ground floor and displays equally impressive cornicing and proportions. There are four bedrooms on this floor although one is presently configured as a dressing room. There is a w.c. alongside this (formally the family bathroom) and this area of the house offers the opportunity to create a fabulous master suite, subject to appropriate consents. The final room on this house is prepared to take the family bathroom.
The great surprise is the extensive accommodation in the basement. The main area is a superb size and would make for an amazing home bar/games room/family room. The studio of this space was where all the aforementioned musical artists recorded tracks. The added benefit of a kitchenette area and shower room on this level means it could be used as an almost self-contained flat. The basement has a door out to the gardens via an external staircase.
The property is a set an extensive mature plot which enjoys a high level of privacy.
Heath Avenue is at the heart of Lenzie village and within walking distance of all amenities including bars, restaurants, shops and Lenzie train station. Lenzie is an ideal location for commuting to the cities of the central belt and beyond. There is excellent schooling at both primary and secondary level. There are a vast number of leisure facilities close to the village including Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre, Golf Courses and great local walks. While there is local shopping on hand, Lenzie is close to the major retail outlets at Bishopbriggs, Glasgow Fort and Robroyston, with Glasgow City Centre being a short commute away.
