About this property
1 St Edmunds lane is one of the finest modern family homes in the vicinity of Glasgow. Extending to over 4500 square feet and sitting in 0.657 acres of private grounds with a further 0.33 acres of communal woodland flanking the driveway, it is one of Glasgow most stylish hidden gems.
Constructed in 2006, this is the first time this property has ever been available for resale. The accommodation spans three floors and has a convenient and comfortable flow. On entering the property the quality is immediately evident. Solid oak entry doors open to reveal a striking oak and walnut handcrafted staircase. Continuing to the right of the stair the hallway leads to the magnificent dining kitchen. A bespoke design created and fitted by Cameron Interiors is fitted with Bulthaup furniture, granite worktops, a central breakfasting island with a Gaggenau five ring gas hob and integrated Miele appliances. The flooring is Travertine stone.
The principal reception rooms comprise the generously proportioned living room and dining room. A centralised living gas flame fire adds a comfortable feel to the living room while the double doors to the wraparound balcony provide ample natural light as well as views over the stunning landscaped gardens.
It is not just the major planning that sets the design of this property apart; there has also been significant attention paid to the finer details such as the cornicing, the integrated sound system which features in all of the ground floor reception areas as well as the Lutron lighting systems throughout.
On the first floor the main bedrooms are found, featuring a principal suite with a gas living flame fire as well as a luxurious en suite bathroom and dressing room. The dressing room was fitted by Hammonds and features a range of fitted wardrobes as well as four expansive windows making it bright and airy while the bathroom was designed and fitted by CP Hart and benefits from underfloor heating and a heated towel rail. In addition, there is a walk in wardrobe fitted by Cameron Interiors. The remaining three bedrooms on this floor all benefit from en suite facilities with Laufen fittings. The family bathroom completes this level and consists of a four piece suite from Philippe Starck and includes a striking freestanding bath.
The garden level contains both the leisure and working parts of the house. The spacious utility room is plumbed with two washing machines and a drier and there is a plant room which houses all the networking switch gear, the central heating controls, as well as the AV equipment and CCTV systems. This level is also home to the fabulous games room and cinema room. The cinema was installed by Loud and Clear and has been enhanced with a starlight ceiling and a popcorn machine with a small kitchenette fitted with a fridge/freezer and integrated microwave. The games room could double as a further bedroom, home office or indeed a spacious garden room as it benefits from double doors providing direct access to the gardens.
Sitting in just under 0.7 acres of private garden, the property has a superb landscaped rear garden with a private gate that leads directly onto the West Highland Way. The gardens have been carved through the mature woodland to create multiple walkways as well as a stunning summer house. Designed to appeal equally to children and adults, there is a well equipped children’s play area with zip wires and trampolines as well as running streams, waterfalls, bridges and a beautiful covered seating area. Much of the garden has been fitted with an expanse of artificial lawn keeping the area clean, accessible and low maintenance all year round. The lighting throughout the garden showcases the exceptional outdoor features as the sun goes down.
The property also benefits from a detached triple garage with electric up and over doors. It is fitted with external security lighting and has parking for up to 6 cares situated on the paving in front.
Above the garage is an exceptional private gym. Fully fitted with a mirrored wall and polished wooden flooring, there is a WC and access to a balcony overlooking the gardens.
