3 Ballagan House, Strathblane, Blanefield
Ballagan House is an imposing stone mansion house situated in an idyllic position at the foothills of the Campsie Fells. Converted in the 20th century into five apartments, house number 3 is an absolutely delightful two-level conversion set at the westerly end of the building. It incorporates the tower and offers very spacious accommodation extending to approximately 1,500sqft; enjoying the tranquility of rural life, yet with the accessibility of ready road connections to the city.
The accommodation on the first floor comprises a reception hall with an original sweeping staircase leading to the first floor hallway lit by a cupola, a large lounge / dining room, featuring at its focal point a marble fireplace with a working stove fire and a kitchen which is set into the tower and is nicely fitted out in a modern style. Also, on this level and off the hall is a toilet with a two-piece suite. On the upper level there are three bedrooms, including a very large master bedroom with the facility of a study or dressing room within the tower. Also on this floor is a four-piece bathroom.
Outside, the grounds are well looked after and extend to more than 9 acres. To the rear of the building there are two garage blocks within which apartment 3 has its own lock-up. There are also outbuildings to the rear of the property where apartment 3’s coal shed is housed. The property also benefits from the use of the tennis court. As well as this, wonderful lowland walks are on the doorstep and for the more adventurous, high ground walks along the Campsies.
The house is impeccably maintained and the five flat owners contribute their share to cover insurance, heating and maintenance. Contributions are also made to a sinking fund that covers gardening costs and the painting of the house.
