This is a 5 bedroom house, with 2 separate living quarters and therefore suitable for 2 families. Set in a semi-rural locatin and with just under 2.5 acres of land (part of which is SSSI protected), this home is less than ten minutes drive from the village centre and only a 40 minute drive to the beautiful shores of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, offering the buyer the absolute best of both worlds. Glasgow Airport is also a short drive of about 20 minutes and locaal train station and bus service can be found in Bishopbriggs village.
Due to the layout, the living accommodation could be separated at any point within the hallway. There are 2 separate, well equipped kitchen areas (both approx 3 years old). The property has previously valued in excess of the current asking price as the vendor acknowedges the requirement for internal decoration. That said, the building is structurally sound with new windows and doors in one half of the living accommodation.
The commercial side of the property has been used, for many years, as a boarding kennel/cattery. It currently has 10 dog runs and 9 cat pens, a fully equipped grooming facility and other rooms and outbuilding/sheds. Due to circumstances, the vendor is unable to trade presently however does not anticipate any probelm in re-establishing the good name/reputation of the business. The price reduction has also taken consideration of this and for the upgrades required within the boarding facility should the buyer choose to use the property in the same fashion. This is not a compulsory purpose though and the grounds could be used for many other purposes, equestrian, dog day care, storage, therapies etc the potential is great. The vendor has a business plan available for ideas of how to upgrade/diversify the business.
Historically this was part of the railway building facilitating a working line and many of the old features including the water tank can still be seen.
Previously on the market for o/o £420,000 there has been a substantial price drop to o/o £320,000 to take consideration of the items noted above and to progress a quick sale.
