*** DISCOUNTS FOR LONGER STAY-VISITS ***

Stunning garden villa, with 3 quadruple, 2 double, 1 twin bedrooms with 3 bathrooms/WCs. All rooms and lounges are spacious enough for flexibility in accommodating extra children or adults with bed and bath linen provided for all guests. All of which provides ample space for sleeping up to 20 guests (more than this if you wish to include guests sleeping on airbeds or further large double sofabed in the main living-reception area). The lounge also has a real log/coal fire to help make evenings more cosy.

Amenities include full gas central heating with radiators in all rooms, instant hot water, double glazing, real log/coal fire, good quality beds, TV in all lounges (including DVD), range double-oven cooker and hob, extraction hood, grill, combination microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, high-walled private mature garden, BBQ and children's tree house. A 14’ trampoline is also made available for guests. There is WiFi internet access, ample off and on street parking (free), and bedding/towels are provided. Mid week change of towels is provided for longer stays. The garden provides a wide area for outdoor games or running around, perhaps whilst meals are being prepared on the gas BBQ. Other entertainment such as board games can be laid on in case of less favourable weather.

This is an impressive, fresh and beautifully designed 6-bedroom, detached villa on two levels, featuring contemporary décor with wooden floors and modern bathroom facilities. The property occupies an elevated position which affords magnificent south and westerly views with fabulous sunsets to enjoy. Guests are often rewarded with stunning panoramic vistas over nearby hills and countryside. Its new contemporary kitchen-dining-reception area is wonderfully bright with fabulous triple-aspect views and direct access via French doors and wide timber deck to the extensive garden area. Overall, there is a substantial area for both dining and seating with open-vaulted cathedral ceiling, well appointed appliances and ample solid oak traditional units throughout. The villa also comprises reception hall, sitting room, computer/study area, family bathroom with airing cupboard, shower room and additional WC-cloakroom. The house includes utility room with fitted washing facilities, single garage plus roof terrace above and plenty of fitted wardrobes / cupboards providing ample storage facilities.

The villa is set in a quiet neighbourhood and benefits from high-walled perimeters, affording tremendous privacy, yet enjoys easy access (< 150m away) to the start of the West Highland Way, Mugdock Country Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The Forth-Clyde Canal, with its flat cycle tracks, is also within easy reach. It is tucked away but less than a hundred metres from the charming, pedestrian-only, luxury garden village centre of Milngavie, which is 20 minutes from Glasgow’s city centre. Off-street parking behind solid privacy gates is available for 4 cars in the driveway, with ample on-street parking also (free). Milngavie is one of Glasgow’s most sought-after semi-urban/semi-rural areas with easy access to both city centre and contrasting rural escapes. The village is situated on the edge of the beautiful Mugdock Country Park with the West Highland Way starting close by. With proximity to stunning scenery everywhere to be seen, Milngavie remains one of the most beautiful and rewarding places to live in Scotland. As well as its rich history, Milngavie is served by a wide range of independent shops (crafts, delis & grocery stores), banks and major retailers such as M&S, Tesco and Waitrose. It is only 1 minute walk to an abundance of local facilities all within the traffic-free village centre. In addition, it has easy access to leisure amenities that include sports centres, golf courses, cinema complexes, as well as Glasgow’s renowned concert and theatre venues. The village also benefits from fantastic transport links for the M8 to Edinburgh, A9 to Stirling/Perth or M74 to the South and England. With its frequent and efficient local and main line railway networks, Glasgow is not only easily accessible by car or train but well serviced by two local airports.

Business and corporate clients can make use of free internet access and the high quality of living space makes it ideal for entertaining or for family gathering events. Families with youngsters will be easily entertained by the proximity of EITHER (in one direction) the many walks, lochs and beautiful scenery OR (in the other direction) the Kelvingrove Galleries, Botanic Gardens or Transport Museum and copious concert venues. Oodles of easily-accessed bus, taxi and train transport options (all <5 minutes walk) provide access to the many outstanding cultural, sporting, music and culinary delights which helped make Glasgow into this city of culture and architecture.

Guests can simply relax and unwind in the spacious living areas, comprising a custom-made kitchen featuring oakwood finishings and modern kitchen appliances to prepare scrumptious lunches or evening meals. Alternatively, a cook can be provided to prepare meals whilst you enjoy the nearby bars, cake and coffee shops all within walking distance. Externally is a timber-decked terrace leading to the garden with its own treehouse. This exceptional villa oozes charm and tranquillity throughout and should provide ideal accommodation for large family gatherings or private family holidays with easy access to the many amenities of this part of Scotland.

Why CHRIS chose Glasgow

This is an impressive, fresh and beautifully designed 6-bedroomed detached villa on two levels, featuring contemporary décor with wooden floors and modern bathroom facilities. The property has a wonderfully bright reception room, with substantial area for both dining and seating, patio and French windows providing decked access to extensive garden, solid oak traditional open-plan kitchen with open-vaulted cathedral ceiling and well appointed appliances. It also comprises reception hall, study/sitting room, computer/study area, family bathroom with airing cupboard, shower room and additional WC-cloakroom. The house includes utility room with fitted washing facilities, single garage plus roof terrace above and plenty of fitted wardrobes / cupboards providing ample storage facilities.

What makes this villa unique

Ideal for family gatherings/events.

There is ample space to accommodate others sleeping on airbeds if required.

The villa is 100m from the centre of Milngavie, where the West Highland Way (to Fort William starts). The property is equally close to some wonderful walks - short and long - whether that's up to feed the ducks on Tannoch Loch, a brisk walk around the reservoir or further afield around the Country Park or Trossachs beyond. This is very much an outdoor activities area with so many choices - both into or away from the city centre.

We spend realy good time in villa

  • 5 of 5

Our team of 15 were able to return to stay (in 15 separate beds) at Pleasant Hill for a total of 2 months. From outset, they found the villa to be comfortable, the area to be very quiet, and the hosts to be super responsive - even to the extent of refreshing linen and cleaning the property overnight each week whilst our colleagues worked night-shifts. Throughout our stay, the hosts have proven to be thorough and over-deliver in all senses. Frankly, it's an expansive house in a peaceful and convenient location. Without hesitation, we will book this villa again when we’re next in the area - not just because of its location and the living areas (which are superb), but also because of two tremendous and dedicated hosts.

Owner's Response: Our warmest thanks to Vince and his group for their kind and courteous words and other displays of appreciation during their stay. It was all the more fulfilling to see this group make full use of the property for their comfort, and we were glad the accommodation capacity so clearly satisfied their spatial needs. Trusting the long return journey didn't deter anyone, we would love to see you all for a return visit. Haste ye back, Chris

Spacieuse villa.

  • 5 of 5

La villa correspondait à mon attente. Nous étions 17 personnes et nous n’etions pas à l’étroit. La maison était spacieuse,propre et proche des commodités (gare, centre ville). Je recommande cette villa. De plus, Chris était au petit soin avec nous.

Beautiful Large Home in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolute fantastic house for our extended family of 14. Trains into Glasgow were every 15 minutes and extremely convenient for going into town, but we enjoyed living in the countryside. If only all owners were as accommodating and as kind as Chris & Francis, nothing was too much for them and made our vacation special.

Perfect for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group (17 people) and were very comfortable. The property was just as described in the listing, and it was clean and in good condition. The large garden was great for little kids to run around in safety. The owner Chris gave us excellent customer care before, during and after our visit. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Lovely, lovely people - always easier to host when guests seem delighted by what the villa, the village and the vicinity have to offer. So happy with your respect for our home, the neighbourhood and general area and especially for making use of the wider garden area for your Easter egg hunt. We find it particularly heart-warming that the villa provides a warm private place where multi-generations of families can all gather, congregate and eat ensemble plus make the most of Milngavie’s easy access to Glasgow, other city centres and adventures further afield. Haste ye back. Chris

Recommended for families and groups.

Well maintained and well equipped. Our host Chris was fantastic and made us feel at home from the moment we walked through the door. Nice quiet area, within a short drive to Glasgow which offers entertainment for all ages. Looking forward to returning in the very near future.

Owner's Response: Our heartfelt thanks to Liz and her group for their kind and courteous words and other displays of appreciation during their stay (not least the bottles of fine Rioja). It was all the more fulfilling to see this group make full use of the wider area for their R&R during a cold weather snap. We were glad the bedroom configurations and living areas satisfied spatial needs. And although the weather and traffic meant you suffered an extended return journey, we would love to see everyone for a return visit. Haste ye back, Chris

Fantastic property & grounds in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Villa for a 30th Birthday Weekend, with a group of 18 people ages ranging from 25 - 42. Chris made every effort to accommodate our large group including allowing us to arrange hot tub hire to the garden for the weekend. In the run up to our arrival Chris was in regular contact with comments and suggestions to help ensure we got the best out of our stay.

Both the property and grounds are spacious, it was the perfect place to enable our large group to celebrate together and the hot tubs were awesome. The Villa is in a quiet residential area with high walls & large grounds which give privacy. The property was clean and well presented and ideally located with the town centre, train station and 24 Hour Tesco all within walking distance.

Owner's Response: We were pleased to receive Sarah’s review and follow-on message which said it all: “We had a fantastic stay at your villa, it was the perfect place to enable our large group to celebrate together.” The test trial of hot tubs presented some interesting challenges, but the party appeared to enjoy easy access between tubs and house. Seven cars parked in the driveway behind closed main gates was also a first. Overall, Sarah and her pals clearly appreciated one of the villa’s principal attractions - its suitability for larger gatherings and its privacy for special/celebratory events (in her case, its ability to comfortably accommodate 18).
