Property Description

The accommodation comprises: private vestibule through storm doors, broad reception hallway, bay windowed living room with coal fire, a designated dining room with electric fire and aspects over garden grounds. The hallway leads to the rear of the building revealing a cleverly fitted under stair wc and a wonderful, split level dining kitchen with stepped access to utility area, boiler room and back door. This rear portion of the property is very impressive, specifically commissioned by the owners and architect designed, featuring in notable publications at the point of completion.

The original sweeping staircase with feature balustrade leads to first floor level through a split level landing revealing four versatile bedrooms (master bay windowed), a modern bathroom suite and three sizeable storage cupboards. The master bedroom and second bedroom both have fireplaces whilst the smallest bedroom is currently used as a walk-in wardrobe although easily altered to its original state. A ceiling hatch at first floor landing gives access via Ramsay stair into a floored attic space.

The property retains a wealth of period detailing, most notably ceiling cornice work, moulded woodwork and beautiful stained glass. There are four fireplaces throughout the house, all of which have been re-lined to accommodate living flame gas fires. Gas central heating is in situ with refurbished timber cased windows by Ventrolla alongside some double glazed units, predominantly to the rear.

A lean-to conservatory on the gable end wall was constructed in 2008 by Mozolowski & Murray delivering a wonderful space to relax and enjoy the garden throughout the summer months. “Dusk to Dawn” security lights surround the property and the garden grounds are beautifully established with an apple tree, a blueberry bush, a rosemary bush and a rhubarb patch. Subfloor access is gained through a dwarf door under the dining room where one will find further storage provision and underfloor insulation. A tandem garage of timber construction has power/light and is accessed from a lane behind Holmhead Road.

Positioned in a quiet cul-de-sac address in Old Cathcart and presented to market in excellent condition, this semi-detached home is close to excellent amenities and transport links. Beautiful traditional features are combined with a bespoke, architect designed kitchen, a Mozolowski & Murray conservatory and professionally landscaped gardens. This is a wonderful opportunity for the discerning buyer.
