Bearsden | £625,000 ($785,000)

A restored four-bedroom, two-bath semidetached house from the 1930s north of Glasgow.

This capacious three story, four-bedroom house sits on a lushly landscaped corner lot in the quiet town of Bearsden, on the northwestern fringe of Greater Glasgow. The home has been expanded with renovations over the years, and the style has been updated with geometric wall designs, a glossy kitchen and contemporary bathrooms.

Behind the house, in a rolling garden, runs the Manse Burn, a local stream. The home is about three-quarters of a mile from Bearsden Cross, the heart of the town. Bearsden, about six miles from Glasgow’s city center, has a rail station, restaurants, grocery stores and a tennis club. Glasgow Airport is a 20-minute drive away.

Size: 2,260 square feet

Price per square foot: $347

Indoors: The semidetached house, which shares a wall with an adjacent property, is separated from the street by a stone wall. The entrance hall gives way to several rooms, including the kitchen, an L-shaped sitting room and an open dining and living room with a TV or reading nook. The contemporary-style kitchen has large floor tiles, high-gloss cabinets and whimsical lighting. Off the kitchen, the family room has a fireplace, a picture window overlooking the garden and a glass-paned door that opens to the deck.

From the oak-floored entrance, stairs with oak railings lead up to three bedrooms and a generous family bathroom with underfloor heating, a soaking tub and an oversized shower. The third floor has the fourth bedroom and a room tucked under the eaves that currently serves as an office.

Outdoor space: Several cars fit in the driveway. Because the home is surrounded by mature trees, the views from inside are a symphony of greens. The family room and lounge both have access to the deck. Past that, the ample yard is fit for dining, playing and enjoying the stream.

Costs: £3,026 ($3,800) a year in property taxes (called “council taxes” in Scotland)
