Sitting opposite Overtoun Park on a large south facing garden plot sits this hugely impressive and substantial, detached Victorian villa dating from circa 1900.
This truly deluxe family home has been sympathetically restored and extended by our clients during their custodianship to now offer an incredibly flexible and spacious home spread across two levels and with a generous footprint of around 216 sq. m (2,325 sq. ft.).
The house retains a plethora of original features and is brimming with original character and charm, as early inspection will reveal. The specification includes quality floor coverings, a terrific, full width, rear extension that is the hub of the home and incorporates a large sitting/dining/kitchen area with bi-fold doors and underfloor heating that continues through into the rear sitting room. There is contemporary sanitary ware/fixtures and an en-suite shower room off the main bedroom, a mixture of original sash n case (mainly to front) and modern Upvc double glazed window units (upper two bedrooms windows replaced more recently), solar panel technology and a system of gas fired central heating. Early internal inspection is strongly advised to appreciate the scale and presentation of accommodation on offer at this asking price.
In terms of accommodation the property comprises a side entrance porch leading into a wonderful reception hallway with centred staircase off to the upper landing and access off to most ground floor apartments including a guest w.c and snug/office space. There is a spectacular formal lounge with fireplace detail to focal wall and broad bay window over the gardens to front. The adjacent formal dining room also features a box bay window and original fireplace to focal wall. The comfortable sitting/family room, which can be accessed from the hallway or lounge, has a more contemporary marble fireplace to focal wall and sits on an open plan basis to the breath taking rear extension which features a vaulted ceiling with Velux windows and has an adjacent utility room with separate store and door to the side of the property. The kitchen itself has been extensively fitted and features a breakfasting bar and some integral appliances. The spacious upper hallway provides access off to three double sized bedrooms; the principal having an en-suite shower room off and there is a large family bathroom comprising of a low level w.c, wash hand basin, large Jacuzzi bath and separate shower enclosure.
Outside, the plot is fully enclosed by a mixture of walling, timber, and wrought iron fencing with gates to front giving access to a bloc paved driveway that provides off-street parking for several cars. The delightful rear garden has a large expanse of lawn, various seating areas, a large shed/store and separate outhouse with two rooms, power, and lighting.
The property sits on Rodger Drive and is within walking distance of shops and amenities on Stonelaw Road.
