Property description

A substantial 'Arts and Crafts' style detached residence set within a private and generous plot, located within sought after Higher Whitecraigs.

From the moment you enter the sweeping driveway, you’ll discover the magnificence of Kian House. Selectively commissioned by the present owners in 2005, this one of a kind, grand family home is built primarily in harled brick with golden blonde sandstone and a slate roof.

Internally Kian House has been styled with care, creativity and luxury, yet offers every practical, contemporary convenience.

The front of Kian House, while majestic, disguises a spacious 435sqm or 4690sqft, of stylish living space, spanning three floors, with flexibility for you to make it yours.

The ground floor opens to a superb welcoming reception hall, the floor dressed limestone, two fine bay windows offering views over the front lawns, and a sweeping staircase leading upstairs.

The drawing room takes full advantage of the natural light from windows on three elevations and two pairs of French doors opening to the decked terrace and manicured gardens. An elegant limestone fireplace, gas living-flame effect fire and fine hand-craftsman made wall cabinets all complement this delightful room which is reached through and connected to the generously proportioned dining room.

The kitchen and breakfasting room offers a gorgeous 30’ bay window, with light pouring in from all four sides. The units are all custom-made, hand-crafted and modern, with integrated appliances, solid granite work-tops, central island, and enough space to include a dining table and chairs. There’s easy access to the rear hall, laundry room, guest WC and staircase to the lower ground floor.

The first floor is reached from the elegant, sweeping staircase to the lovely, galleried landing with two bright bay windows overlooking Roddinghead Road. The master bedroom is grand and spacious with exposed beams, lovely views over the rich gardens, and access to an attractive en-suite bathroom and welcome separate dressing room.

Bedroom two and three are spacious, and share an en-suite bathroom, while bedrooms four and five offer a Jack and Jill en-suite shower room.

The lower ground floor is reached from a modern spiral staircase and leads to an expansive garden room, open plan with a useful, bright games room, guest WC, stylish French windows leading to the gardens, integral double garage with secure, electronic doors, and integral courtesy door.

Kian House also offers underfloor heating throughout, high quality double-glazing, a wide range of internal cupboards and cabinets, and is protected by a security alarm system and CCTV.

The property can also be reached from Neidpath Road West, while being ideally positioned back from Roddinghead Road behind automatic security gates leading to a sweeping driveway with ample space for several cars.

The lovely, mature gardens are enclosed, offering you privacy and seclusion. The large rear garden has an expansive lawn, seasonal blossoms and well-stocked borders. An extensive paved patio travels along the back of the house, interfacing between the smart French doors and lawns, perfect when you’re entertaining.

Roddinghead Road is a street lined with substantial houses set within generous and established gardens and Higher Whitecraigs has become one of Glasgow's premier residential addresses. A number of substantial modern mansions have been built on the sites of the original 1920/1930's dwellings and significant on going investment continues to be made by the residents in their homes.

A hugely popular suburb, Whitecraigs is located approximately 9 miles South from Glasgow City Centre. Commuter routes are served by the M77, M8 and Glasgow Orbital motorways which also provide 30 minute journey times to both Glasgow and Prestwick international airports. There are regular train and bus services to Glasgow, East Kilbride and the Ayrshire coast.

Local sports and recreational facilities include Parklands Country Club, Cathcart and Whitecraigs Golf Clubs, a number of private bowling and tennis clubs, and East Renfrewshire Council's own excellent sports and leisure facilities at Eastwood Toll.
