Set within substantial corner gardens in a highly desirable area within walking distance of the heart of Strathaven, this traditional sandstone semi-detached villa built in 1906 is presented to the market in excellent condition. Sympathetically modernised and extended, yet retaining a wealth of period character, the layout of this family home offers flexible generously proportioned accommodation over three levels. The roofspace was converted to a very large well-lit 4th bedroom in 2004, and a large classically designed conservatory was added to the rear in 2006.
The house is entered through a storm-doored porch with mosaic tiled floor and stained glass front door leading to a reception hallway with ornate period plaster cornice and archway, solid timber flooring, and timber carpeted staircase with original carved wooden newel posts and balustrade, below which a modern 3-piece shower room has been installed. The large bay-windowed formal lounge has a full-height bay window, fine original ceiling plasterwork and a press cupboard beside a traditional cast iron solid fuel fireplace. The family dining room to the rear has solid oak floor and a press cupboard beside a solid fuel fireplace and leads to a large utility room equipped with a recently-installed gas combi boiler, washing machine and tumble dryer, sink, and ceiling mounted clothes pulley. An original solid timber door opens into a modern kitchen dining room with a beautiful range of stainless steel effect floor and wall-mounted kitchen units, eight ring gas range cooker and extractor, double sink and slimline dishwasher. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate a small dining area. A velux roof light has been added over the sink area to provide additional daylighting. The kitchen dining area extends via a five-leaf folding glazed door into the large timber and glass west-facing conservatory which is heated and functions as a beautiful additional sitting room to enjoy the garden year round. The conservatory is accessed from the rear driveway via a timber-lined porch and from the garden via double glazed doors.
On the first floor are three spacious bedrooms accessed from a generous hall with cupboard space. The master bedroom has an ornate period ceiling and a full-height bay window with panoramic open views over the protected Glebe field to the Victorian town park. The double bedroom to the rear has a large cupboard under the attic stairs and the third corner single bedroom enjoys windows to the front and side. The spacious family bathroom accessed from the stairs landing has a bath and separate shower. Stairs lead from the first floor hall to a very large 4th bedroom created within the roofspace, with large velux rooflights to the front and rear. The front rooflight affords panoramic views over Strathaven to the hills beyond. This beautifully light space would also make an ideal games room or home office. There is ample under roof storage. The well established gardens to the front, side and rear have been generously planted with a range of shrubs, flowers and fruit trees.
