A truly outstanding stone built semi-detached Victorian villa, with elevated open views across the city and beyond, sitting on a nicely arranged garden plot in one of Cambuslang’s most recognised and highly sought-after addresses.
The house bears all the hallmarks of a magnificent family home and is brimming with original character and charm, offering an incredibly spacious and versatile seven apartments over two levels and with a generous footprint of around 174 sq. m (1872 sq. ft.).
In all, there are three public rooms and four bedrooms, the principal having the convenience of an en-suite shower room off, supported by the dining kitchen, a large utility cupboard, guest WC, four-piece bathroom, entrance vestibule, lower and upper halls. The attic has been fully floored and lined (Velux window) to create a very useful work or storage room, accessed via a pull-down loft ladder. The specification includes tasteful décor and quality floor coverings throughout, a bespoke fitted kitchen with a range of integral appliances, contemporary sanitary ware and fixtures, double glazing, and there is a system of gas fired central heating by way of a highly efficient Baxi Platinum 40HE combination boiler that was installed about eight years ago.
In terms of accommodation the property is entered via a private vestibule and a welcoming reception hallway with guest w.c, staircase off to the upper level and access to all ground floor apartments. There is a magnificent formal bay windowed lounge with fireplace detail and a stained glass fronted display cabinet to focal wall, a formal side facing dining room with feature fireplace, and a comfortable family room with adjacent walk-in utility cupboard. The family room also allows passage through to a wonderful dining sized kitchen with Velux skylights and a door giving direct access to the rear. The kitchen itself has real woodwork surface areas and features a Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven, microwave, and gas hob. On the upper half landing there is a fantastic rear facing bedroom and a most impressive family bathroom with thermostatically controlled under floor heating, freestanding bath, a contemporary two-piece suite and separate shower enclosure with thermostatic mixer shower. The main upper hallway has two conveniently positioned store cupboards and provides access to two further double sized bedrooms; the principal having a box bay window and en-suite shower room off, and there is a further generous sized single bedroom at the front.
The house sits on a brilliant garden plot, fully enclosed, landscaped and meticulously maintained. The front garden is well screened by high level hedging, and there is a driveway (with wrought iron gates for full enclosure) that runs along the side of the property, offering ample off-street parking, to a single detached garage at the rear. The delightful rear garden is bounded by a variety of mature trees and shrubs, aiding in a good degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a raised platform with decking that overlooks the garden and makes for a perfect place to entertain or enjoy some alfresco dining. There is a very private seating area towards the bottom of the garden and a pathway and rear gate at the far end gives direct access onto Prospect Avenue. There is also a sizeable basement area providing excellent storage.
Buchanan Drive is widely recognised as one of Old Cambuslang’s premier addresses and sits close to host of amenities including nurseries, schools at both primary and secondary levels, day-to-day shops, and a host of recreational facilities including Cambuslang tennis club and Kirkhill golf course. 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.
