ONE of only eight unique homes built in 1933 by John McDonald in Carse View Drive, a quiet cul-de-sac within the popular Kilmardinny district of Bearsden, this iconic C-listed Art Deco villa occupies a very sizable plot which benefits from a mature, south-westerly-facing rear garden.

Recently upgraded throughout – most notably a distinctive new flat roof still under guarantee, new external roughcast, and new gas combination boiler – this three-bedroomed house displays many original Art Deco features, including the original metal Crittal windows, which have been upgraded where required and make an eye-catching feature.

The Herald:

Spanning almost 2,000 sq ft over two floors, the accommodation is accessed by a traditional Deco-style covered front porch leading inside to a generous hallway, shower room, and staircase, 22ft living room with new Deco-style fireplace/gas fire basket, curved corner window and French doors to the front, and sliding glass ‘pocket’ doors to the adjoining dining room, the latter linking to a spacious, fully fitted dining kitchen with high-end appliances and adjoining utility/laundry, while a door from the kitchen opens into the reception hall to complete the circle.

The Herald:

Upstairs, a 23ft landing provides access to three good-sized bedrooms – one with a curved front window and all three benefitting from deep, built-in wardrobes – plus family shower room, and landing storage. Art Deco fans will not be disappointed as the owners have taken great pains to maintain the character and distinguishing features of the period inside as well as out.

Carse View Drive is within a quiet residential corner of Bearsden, close to Kilmardinny Loch, a local beauty spot, and similarly close to Kilmardinny Art Centre, and Douglas Park Golf Club, while nearby Bearsden Cross provides an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, and other services, most of which are within walking distance.

There are also railways stations at Hillfoot, Bearsden, and Milngavie, all within or under a mile away. Offers over £575,000 are invited by Clyde Property’s Bearsden office.
