Dating from circa 1900, this truly impressive and substantial, double fronted detached villa, occupies a commanding position on a generous south facing garden plot at the corner of Blairbeth Road/Hillend Road.
The house bears all the hallmarks of a magnificent family home and is brimming with original character and charm, offering eight principal apartments over the two levels, which is further enhanced by the addition of a side sunroom extension that could also be utilised as a playroom/gymnasium, two large basement rooms and a fabulous billiards room at attic level.
This superb home extends to a generous 300 sq. m and benefits from a modern fitted kitchen and two stylish shower rooms; one of which has underfloor heating and was re-fitted in 2019. There are some replacement Upvc double glazed window units, a refurbished, near full height, stained leaded glass window within the hallway and some of the original sash n case windows on the front elevation still have the original sained leaded glass top sashes. There is also a highly efficient system of gas fired central heating with Hive controller, CCTV security cameras and the property has been fitted with a burglar alarm for added peace of mind.
The property has a traditional layout with twin glazed storm doors opening into a large entrance porch and grand reception hallway with staircase off to the upper level and all ground floor apartments including a magnificent formal lounge with stripped flooring, Limestone fireplace detail to focal wall (remote controlled electric fire within) and box bay window over the gardens to front. The lounge gives access to the sunroom at the side. There is a further bay windowed sitting room at the front and a large formal dining room at the rear. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well-appointed shower room and an extensively fitted kitchen with an integral dishwasher, freestanding Smeg range cooker and ample space for a dining table and chairs. The original stair leads off to the first floor where there are five incredibly spacious bedrooms and a further shower room. A fixed stair from the first floor gives access to the billiards room at attic level which features an original fireplace, three dormer window projections and eaves storage. There is also a lower hallway and two further rooms at basement level which at present are used as store/utility rooms.
Outside, the garden grounds are well established and bounded by stone walling with excellent tree-screening aiding in a good degree of privacy and seclusion. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn at the front, side and rear, the latter of which is south facing. There is a driveway providing off-street parking for multiple vehicles, a car port and a large detached garage that can be accessed from Hillend Road.
The property sits in Central Burnside and is within walking distance of shops and amenities upon 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, gyms, and excellent schooling at primary and secondary levels. There are excellent bus links to the City Centre, and Burnside railway station sits only a short distance from the property. There are also excellent road links close by including the recently built M74 link giving easy access to the surrounding areas and the Central Belt motorway network system.
