This is an absolutely magnificent example of a stone fronted main door lower quarter villa, sited at the corner of Fishescoates Avenue/Blairbeth Road, on a larger than normal plot that affords fully enclosed generous sized gardens to the front and rear, and off-street driveway parking and garage at the far end of the rear garden.
Over the course of the last three years, this truly outstanding quarter villa has been extensively upgraded by the current owners and boasts all on the level accommodation which will surely appeal to a mature downsizer or any buyer seeking a property in turnkey condition.
The list of improvement works is extensive and includes replacement floor coverings & internal doors, the installation of a stunning Wren kitchen within what was formerly the second public room, a re-fitted utility room (previous kitchen), a sleek and contemporary shower room, some upgraded electrical wiring which has been fully bonded to meet current safety standards and a new main board consumer unit. There is a replacement system of gas fired central heating by way of a highly efficient Baxi combination boiler and Hive controller. Furthermore, the property has some recently upgraded double glazed window units and a replacement composite front entrance door. On the outside, the exterior of the building has recently been professionally painted and a considerable amount of time and money has been invested in the landscaping of the front and rear gardens, creating attractive low maintenance gardens with an abundance of seasonal colour and various options for outside dining in the warmer months including a south facing patio deck.
In terms of accommodation the property comprises a private vestibule leading into a warm and welcoming reception hallway with excellent in-built storage and access off to all apartments including a wonderful lounge with fireplace detail and living flame gas fire to focal wall and a broad bay window over the gardens to front. The immediately impressive dining sized kitchen is rear facing with a large picture window over the garden, and beyond with views across the City towards Ben Lomond the Campsie Hills. The kitchen itself has an invaluable pantry cupboard off and features a range of high-end integral appliances including a dishwasher, wine cooler, double oven, and gas hob. The adjacent utility room has an integral fridge, freezer, ample space for freestanding appliances, and allows access to a rear porch and the private garden beyond. There is a fabulous double sized bedroom, and the accommodation is completed by a luxury, fully tiled, shower room.
The large garage to the rear of the property has side windows which are south facing and bright and has existing lighting and electrical sockets. This makes it an excellent prospect for an outside office, gym or studio.
The property is positioned within walking distance of shops and amenities upon Stonelaw Road where extensive facilities can be found in Rutherglen Main Street and further afield at Kingsgate Retail Park which is only a short drive away. Recreational pursuits within the general area include well-maintained parks, bowling/golf clubs, gyms and excellent schooling is available locally at primary and secondary levels. There are excellent bus links to the City Centre with Burnside Train Station only a short walk away. There are also excellent road links to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network system.
