Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“ With 35 years in the property industry, I still enjoy the element of surprise when I visit properties daily.
In my opinion, Pladda View is an oasis …unassuming behind its subtle main door …easily missed …and yet when one enters, its character & charm unfolds before you, revealing a very comfortable home of substantial proportion, clearly loved/enjoyed by its owners, with the skyline sea/coastline views to the rear encouraging one to relax or be tempted out for a seaside stroll.
For the New Owner... settle down at home or in your garden and reflect that you own a wonderful Glasgow West End style Character Home …at a much more appealing price …within a very short stroll of the beach. ”
