Why: Dennistoun was ranked eighth in Time Out’s list of the 40 coolest neighbourhoods in Europe, with praise for the amount of good pubs, bars, coffee shops and restaurants. It also highlighted the number of positive community initiatives that help bring locals together.

For people who work in the city centre or just want to go shopping, it is not a long commute. And while it is a popular area, property prices have not been shooting up as quickly as other parts of Glasgow.

Schools: Golfhill Primary School is the closest school to those living on Onslow Drive, while Whitehill is the nearest secondary school. The school ranked 248th out of Scotland’s 340 state schools in the The Times’ annual ranking earlier this year, with 30 per cent of pupils attaining five highers.

Transport links: Alexandra Parade and Duke Street train stations both offer good links, with regular services between Milngavie and Springburn. Motorists are also just a short drive from the M8. Buses regularly run along Alexandra Parade.

Houses for sale: There are currently no properties to buy on Onslow Drive.
