Newton Mearns home given fresh lease of life
An undistinguished home in Newton Mearns, Glasgow, has been given a fresh lease of life with the unveiling of a Macdonald Dickson Architecture penned refit.

The neglected 1970s bungalow has been transformed into a modern family home through demolition of an existing flat roofed extension to the rear and its replacement with a new open plan kitchen and dining area connected to the main house.

This fronts an area of new decking with a mezzanine level above hosting a study space with a feature bay window designed to maximise views out to the surrounding landscape.

Elsewhere work to reconfigure the interior has seen creation of a new master suite and reconfigured hallway, incorporating its own storage and a bathroom.
