Glorious Greengairs

The most obvious advantage of this beautiful four-bedroom detached home in Greengairs (offers over £165,000 through Slater Hogg) is the size of its rooms – which are frankly impressive, and noticeably larger than the price bracket would suggest.

The property spec details plenty of features that would attract a house-hunter looking for that elusive balance between affordability, functionality and price, but seller Mrs Catherine McGowan considers some of the special features could – for the right person – make this seem the perfect choice.

Take for example those spectacular bathroom mirrors, nicely setting off a magnificent suite which you simply wouldn’t find in any “typical” Cumbernauld home in this price range.

There’s a built-in audio system too, and a family room with movie lights built into the floor, even before you consider the main living spaces and their particular soecial features.l

The much-hackneyed expression “walk in condition” is literally true, as the whole house has been given a complete makeover, preparatory to sale.

And while the design scheme is neutral it certainly isn’t boring – so that, chances are, many would-be buyers would be happy enough to put their own stamp on the home without having to redecorate in any significant way.

The scale side of things continues outdoors, where Mrs McGowan says there’s enough space for perhaps five cars in the driveway.

Needless to say there’s a capacious garden area to match – space aplenty for children to go trampolining, perhaps – and a large decking feature that works to superb advantage during the summer months.

Meanwhile the local primary school is literally across the road, which for many families must be a major selling point in itself, and there are plenty of other amenities nearby – for example a country club we’re assured does lovely meals, just minutes away.

Mrs McGowan, originally from Cumbernauld, says the town centre is within easy reach, and reckons anyone who sees Greengairs – also handy for railway stations – will come to the same conclusion she did.

It boils down to the fact that this house has all the advantages you’d expect from a building that would cost a lot more in a comparable area of Cumbernauld – yet is as close to the town as makes much difference.

Add all these advantages together – and consider the opening price – and a visit to view this thoroughly attractive property is surely worthwhile.
