May 5, 2021 2:00 pm Published by

** NEW to Market - Available to View Now **    A highly desirable larger Modern “Luxury Style” Detached Villa within favoured Bryant Built Residential Development, situated in Deaconsbank adjacent to Newton Mearns. This superb family home has been enhanced further by its present owners with the conversion of the former double integrated garage which now forms a semi-open plan dining & family room with a useful separate study off. Bryant Homes completed this particular property circa 1999, we understand this was one of only 2 “Ailsa” Style Homes built which were believed to be the largest style at that time – with the garage conversion completed the accommodation extends to 8 Main Apartments (plus the useful small study/workroom), over 2 levels. Deaconsbank is adjacent to Newton Mearns, connected by Deaconsbank Road, convenient for access across the south side with its wide arrange of shopping/amenities whilst the popular Mearns Cross & Silverburn Shopping Centres are easily accessible by car. The M77 is a short car journey providing convenient city centre access by car or one can use the train via the station a short distance away. A variety of local parks & golf courses are also nearby. No 7 Deaconsbank Gardens benefits from being within the Glasgow Boundaries, outwith East Renfrewshire where comparable properties would likely be assessed in a higher council tax band due to their higher purchase price. The school catchment will be Glasgow however at present if a family already has children attending East Renfrewshire Schools then they would continue doing so (potential buyers are advised to check latest school entry requirements direct with their desired school). The flexible accommodation comprises on ground floor – reception hall with useful “downstairs” wc off, lounge with multi-fuel fire being a warm focal point when loaded with crackling logs, the dining & family rooms are semi-open plan with a separate small study/workroom off, the kitchen features a useful utility room adjacent, an informal living room/office with patio doors is available as a 4th public room or 5th bedroom if required. On the upper level, the “master” bedroom (No 1) features a stylish re-fitted en-suite, 3 further bedrooms are provided served by the family bathroom located off the upper hallway. The property features both gas central heating & double glazing. Attic & internal storage/wardrobes are available. EPC – C. Private gardens are situated to the front & rear whilst the monobloc driveway to the front provides private parking. In our view, a rare opportunity to acquire a particularly desirable Bryant Homes Detached Villa which can genuinely accommodate a growing family and indeed provide space for “home-working” if required. .

*NEW to Market  -  Available to View Now*   Doonvale Drive, Alloway – An excellent opportunity to acquire a desirable Modern Detached Villa by well regarded Stewart Milne Homes. This particular style “The Thorntonhall” featuring ideal family accommodation of 7/8 Main Apartments, noting that this is the original specification without the integral double garage having been converted – rather than apparently similar size homes which have sacrificed the double garage to extend their accommodation. The property enjoys an attractive setting within favoured residential development of mixed style modern family/executive homes on the outskirts of Ayr, itself on the South West Coast of Scotland. Well proportioned apartments are featured over 2 levels, easily accommodating a growing family. Larger style Detached Villas are particularly popular with local buyers looking to upsize, with Glasgow buyers who continue to re-locate from city to the coast/seaside for a more relaxed lifestyle/work balance, whilst clients re-locating from England to Scotland remain strong contenders for larger modern luxury style homes. The well proportioned apartments are laid out over 2 levels, offering flexibility as required – normally utilised as 2/3 Public & 5 Bedrooms. If required, the integral double garage also allows further expansion within the footprint of the existing property (less expensive than add-on accommodation) – subject to required planning permission etc. Internal viewing reveals a comfortable & adaptable family home, comprising on the ground floor, the reception hall with useful “downstairs” wc off, bay windowed lounge to the front with a separate dining room to the rear featuring connecting “French style” doors, also to the rear a semi open-plan style integrated kitchen/dining/breakfasting room (patio doors from here onto private rear gardens) with a useful separate utility room (access from here to the integral double garage). All the bedrooms, easily accommodating a growing family, are featured on the upper level with a staircase from the reception hall leading to the upper hallway – the master bedroom (No 5) to the front with en-suite whilst bedroom No 1 (presently a large games room) is a large bedroom which could easily be utilised as a childrens living/games room or teenager’s bedroom/living room, 3 further bedrooms are located to the rear (Nos 2, 3 & 4) with bedroom No 2 featuring an en-suite. The main bathroom is also situated on the upper level. The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. Private gardens are featured to the front & rear, neatly presented/landscaped with the rear fenced for privacy providing a safe/enclosed child-friendly play area or outdoor space in which to relax on better weather days. The private driveway provides off-street parking for several vehicles whilst also leading to a much-valued integral double garage which provides secure parking/storage. A wonderful Summer House is located within the rear garden allowing one to enjoy sheltered outdoor time, either to relax or entertain. In our view… of huge appeal to those clients seeking a larger Modern Luxury Style Detached Home with the flexibility to accommodate an existing/growing family or provide more space in which to entertain/enjoy, support homeworking etc. To discuss your interest in No 51 Doonvale Drive please contact Graeme Lumsden, our Director/Valuer, who is handling this particular sale – 01292 283606 or gpl@blackhay.co.uk  Internal Viewing is invited by contacting BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS on 01292 283606.

Typical modern/new build homes are often located within tightly packed residential developments which can often feel claustrophobic due to the lack of amenity or garden space. Bruach House nestles within attractive larger landscaped private gardens (noting the driveway has a right of access for the owner of the field & adjacent property), sloping down from the main roadway to the level area surrounding the property. The gardens will attract those wishing to potter or indeed relax whilst a family buyer will enjoy the outdoor area which children can enjoy.
