Enjoying a commanding position on Buchanan Drive with views to front over the lawns of Cambuslang Tennis Club and beyond across the City, sits this substantial stone built semi-detached villa on an expansive, westerly facing garden plot, in one of the most sought after pockets of Cambuslang.
The house is offered to the open market for the first time in fifty years and will require a significant level of investment from the incoming purchaser – a rare opportunity that presents to developers, builders, or the private purchaser looking to invest and create their forever home.
Retained are the original panelled doors, ceiling cornice work, a fine staircase and the sash and casement windows; some of which still have the original stained leaded glass in the top sashes. The rear elevation of the house (currently the kitchen) has recently been reroofed and had new ceiling joists installed along with two Velux windows.
The property has a traditional layout with storm doors and an entrance vestibule opening to a large reception hallway with under stair storage and original staircase leading to the upper floor. There are three flexible apartments on the ground floor and a kitchen area at the rear giving direct access to the garden. The original sweeping staircase leads to the first-floor level via a split-level landing that gives access to a spacious rear facing double bedroom. The main upper landing has two storage cupboards and gives access to the remaining two bedrooms; the principal benefitting from a broad three section bay window and there is a family bathroom comprising a three-piece suite.
The front garden is laid to lawn with tree/shrubs borders to one side and a chipped driveway providing of-street parking. The impressive sized rear garden is bounded by perimeter fencing and a variety of mature trees and shrubs. The garden itself is mostly laid to lawn and features a single detached garage and carport at the far end.
The property is quietly situated within arguably one of the most sought after pockets in Cambuslang to the south of Glasgow and is conveniently placed for access to a host of amenities including nurseries, schools at both primary and secondary levels, a host of recreational facilities, Kirkhill golf course, tennis club and a variety of day-to-day shops. Kirkhill and Cambuslang train stations are a short walk away; the latter taking approximately 12 minutes to reach Glasgow Central station. In addition to this, there are excellent road links to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network.
