An exquisite, C Listed Arts and Crafts home, brimming with character in a popular and exclusive area of Bearsden.
Roman Court is one of the finest C listed Arts and Crafts homes in East Dunbartonshire and was built circa 1912 by architect Alan McNaughton.
This two storey, five bedroom villa has a multitude of original features including fireplaces, coving, waxed wood banister, exposed roof beams and panelling throughout. It is however worth highlighting the efforts of the current owners to not simply inhabit and enjoy this historic property, but to add elements of quality and comfort as well. The contemporary kitchen and bathrooms along with the exceptionally fine open fireplaces in the hallway, family room and dining room are examples of this.
The accommodation flows very well with a lovely sense of arrival through the central arch to the front door leading to a wonderful reception hall with a prominent wooden staircase in full view. The drawing room, sitting room, dining room and kitchen are accessed from the hallway along with the staircase leading to the upper floor.
The breakfasting kitchen has a stylish blend of polished granite worktops and oak cabinet façades. A range cooker and plentiful wall and floor mounted storage cupboards complete this fabulously well equipped kitchen. On a functional level, off the kitchen is a spacious utility room, a WC and a servants' staircase leading to the first floor.
The first floor sees five double bedrooms flow neatly from a central landing. The master bedroom also benefits from a well appointed en suite and built in storage. The spacious family bathroom has a wonderful bath and separate shower cubicle with traditional free standing washbasin and separate WC.
Roman Court truly is a home for all. Spacious yet comfortable reception rooms and a subtle yet unquestionable grandeur to the property. It has been finished with an appreciative attention to detail by the current owners, all of which makes Roman Court one of the finest examples of a family home to have come to the local market in recent years.
The property further benefits from a separate double garage, greenhouse and outbuildings currently being used for workshop purposes.
The expertly planted gardens are a credit to the current owners. The entrance gate and sweeping driveway leads to the entrance porch and ample space for parking including a carport. There is a large terrace to the rear which takes full advantage of the dual aspect gardens. The lawns are surrounded by borders which are full of colour throughout the spring and summer with an abundance of mature shrubs, camellias, azaleas and rhododendrons. The gardens are flat and mainly lawned, surrounded by a variety of trees.
