Sited opposite Overtoun Park on a large south facing garden plot sits this hugely impressive and substantial, double-fronted detached Victorian villa dating from circa 1905.
A family home for fifty years, ‘Muirton’ is now offered to the open market and is brimming with original character and charm, as early inspection will reveal. The house has a generous footprint of around 179 sq. m (1.926 sq. ft) with eight flexible apartments spread across two levels. There are three public rooms and five bedrooms (or four plus study) supported by a dining kitchen, utility room, bathroom, and cloakroom. The house has a mixture of single- and double-glazed window units (some with original painted glass), a system of gas central heating (providing warmth via warm air vents on the ground floor and radiators on the upper floor) and the house has been fitted with a burglar alarm for added peace of mind.
The property is entered via twin leaf storm doors and an entrance vestibule to an immediately impressive reception hallway with staircase to the upper level, excellent under stair storage, door direct to the rear garden and access off to all ground floor apartments including an elegant formal lounge with fireplace detail and open fire to focal wall and bay window over the gardens to front. There is a further bay windowed formal dining room to front and at the rear, a morning room overlooking the gardens. The kitchen has been extensively fitted and provides ample space for a table and chairs along with access to an adjacent utility room and guest w.c. The original stair leads through half landing to a spacious upper hall providing access to four double sized bedrooms, a fifth bedroom/study and there is a well-appointed, four-piece, family bathroom.
Outside, the plot is fully enclosed, predominantly by a mixture of stone/brick walling, with twin gates to front and driveway providing off-street parking for several cars. There is an attached garage to one side, with power and lighting, remote controlled roller door to front and sperate rear door access. The delightful rear garden has a large, shaped lawn with a variety of bordering trees/shrubs and there is a paved patio and timber shed.
The property sits on Rodger Drive and is within walking distance of shops and amenities on Stonelaw Road. More extensive facilities can be found on Rutherglen Main Street and further afield at Kingsgate Retail Park which is only a short drive to the south east. Recreational pursuits are varied within the general area and include well-maintained parks, golf courses and gyms. There are excellent bus links to the City Centre and both Burnside and Rutherglen Train Stations are only a short walk away. There are also excellent road links close by giving easy access to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network system. The Energy Performance rating on this property is Band F.
