A villa for all seasons

Some properties manage to tick all the right boxes when it comes to finding that ideal mixture of good looks and practical living space – and it’s no longer a surprise to find such a combination in a bungalow.

This stunning home in Kildrum’s Burn View (on the market through Slater Hogg, Cumbernauld, at offers over £185,000) speaks for itself when it comes to the stellar quality of its interior design, because while everyone obviously has their own idea of taste the overall look and quality of this six apartment detached chalet villa is simply exemplary.

The owners have spent the last three years continually refining and improving what was already an attractive proposition – for example the garage has been modified to accommodate a handy office space, and then there’s that stunning conservatory (a sun trap in the better months, which makes it a great place for breakfast) – and even a cursory look at what is on offer should be enough to engage the attention of anyone seeking something a bit special at what’s arguably a modest and realistic starting price.

But then there’s the location to consider, too. The property is in a quiet cul-de-sac, conferring both peace and quiet and privacy, and is within minutes of Cumbernauld House Park and scenic woodland, yet is also completely convenient for shops, other main amenities, and access to the town centre.

Its unusually high quota of particularly attractive features include an enclosed wall garden, which gives the owners an extra degree of privacy while also adding to the character of the property.

And having a large and comfortable lounge directly overlooking the garden is a further bonus – as is the direct link from the large open plan dining area to the garden, courtesy of large sliding double doors.

The upper floor, with its sparkling bathroom (refitted modern four piece suite with tiling and shower), is everything you would expect it to be, in synchrony with the splendid ground floor rooms, and houses three good-sized bedrooms – each with plenty of storage space (a strong feature of the property generally).

All of the fixtures and fittings – for example the central heating and glazing – are exactly what you would expect in an attractive modern home in which every effort has been made to improve on what was already a gem of a property.

With the worst of the property doldrums behind us, along with bleakest days of winter, this is one attention-grabbing property offer which can surely expect plenty of visits in the days ahead.

Impressive enough on paper, it’s one that deserves to be seen in person for its many advantages to be fully appreciated.
