4 bedroom house for sale
Laggary House, Laggary Park, Rhu, Helensburgh
2 Laggary House is formed by the major ground floor portion of the historic and graceful Laggary House, at one time an important and historical baronial mansion house of the district. Number 2 is one of only four period homes which have been created by the careful, sensitive and successful conversion of Laggary House and the execution has been cleverly managed to ensure careful preservation of most if not all of the original period features.
The entire property is of dressed honey sandstone construction under slated roof and Laggary House is set amid well stocked and mature parkland type gardens. Although 2 Laggary House enjoys its own dedicated entrance door at the southern elevation the present owners use the original main entrance vestibule and broad timber panelled reception hallway which is common to all four Laggary House owners.
Number 2 has its own entrance vestibule and reception hallway which gives way to a fine timber panelled study/sitting room which leads on to a feature bay windowed formal dining/drawing room.
The kitchen is large and easily copes with informal dining/breakfasting furniture, and from the rear hallway there is access to the main family bathroom, a small utilities room and four good sized bedrooms, the master of which features an en suite shower room.
Outside the gardens (edged in red on the enclosed plan) that immediately surround Laggary House are for the shared common enjoyment of all four owners at Laggary House.
The gardens are mature, laid to grass and feature a wide range of colourful shrub, bush and border plants as well as tall mature trees which ensure privacy and seclusion. Within the grounds at the rear are shared use outhouses. The gardens and common parts of Laggary House are maintained by each of the owners making a £150 pcm contribution to a gardens and maintenance fund.
An area of parkland type gardens (edged blue on the enclosed plan) laid mainly to grass with mature trees is owned by a combination of the owners of Laggary House and Laggary Park and is maintained by each of the owners contributing £90 annually.
