Part Exchange Available! Kilsyth Road is one of the primary residential locations within the desirable location of 'Queenzieburn' that features some of the most individual, eye-catching properties in the immediate vicinity. 2 Kilsyth Road dates from the late 19th century and is a beautiful
4/5 bedroom former school house that has been designed to make the most of its unspoiled, rural location, with panoramic views across the local countryside.
Displaying a stunning sandstone frontage, under a series of pitched slate roofs, the house offers some beautiful design features from a bygone era and offers flexible and versatile accommodation formed over a two storey layout. In essence, the front of the property belies the spacious accommodation internally.
Although the house is very much a traditional period home,
it has a very contemporary, modern feel. The bespoke interior
offers sophisticated living space, with exquisite, restored period detailing including cornicing, fireplaces and skirtings.
On entering the home through the entrance vestibule, it is
immediately apparent that the current owners have meticulously looked after and improved this family home for the four years of their ownership, which is fit for today's modern living. Room usage throughout can be adapted to meet individual purchasers' needs and will comfortably provide for a larger family.
The house is approached by an impressive entrance with an overhanging porch, which leads to a spacious vestibule and opens into a fully tiled hallway with an elegant staircase. The central 'hub' of the home is the immediately impressive formal and bright lounge, which has a range of furniture configurations, with a lovely open fireplace and a front aspect window offering outstanding views over the neighbouring park and to the open countryside. The separate dining room has ample space for a table and six chairs for more formal dining with friends and family. It also benefits from a feature fireplace.
Similar views to that of the lounge are also offered from this room. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted to include a good range of contemporary floor and wall mounted units, with a striking work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace.
It further benefits from an integrated oven, hob, extractor
and fridge/freezer. There is space for a washing machine
and dishwasher. A family room/fifth bedroom is also locatedon the ground floor and is sure to be a popular feature with younger members of the family and for ``mum keeping an eye'', as this room is located just along from the kitchen.
For added convenience, a cloakroom/wc and a large understairs cupboard is located within this zone.
There are four, well-proportioned, double bedrooms on the
first floor. The Master benefits from a range of fitted wardrobes and all have ample space for additional free standing furniture if required. The views from the rooms at the front are quite spectacular! The fourth bedroom could be used as anything you want it to be - a hot office space, studio or permanent bedroom. It would also suit those requiring life/work arrangements.
Access to the loft is gained from the upstairs bathroom. A contemporary, four-piece bathroom suite, with a separate shower cubicle, completes the impressive accommodation on this level.
The property also benefits from gas central heating for
Externally, an entrance leads off Kilsyth Road, passed an
established hedge, to a mono-block driveway, which leads up
to a garage (with power and light) and a gravel parking area.
Gateways lead round to the rear of the house, where steps
lead up to an area of lawn, which leads up a sloping bank to
a belt of Cyprus trees at the top of the garden. On the far side of the house is a kennel and dog run.
