Leabank is situated in grounds extending to some 9 acres. The grounds are bounded on the southern side by the Helensburgh - Glasgow railway line and on the northern side by the A814 Dumbarton to Cardross Road. Remote operated outer gates* in bell mouth entry lead via a black top driveway to a gravel vehicle sweep and hard stand. The main gardens are laid to grass with ornamental trees, shrubs, conifers and bushes. A grass tennis court is at the rear. Semi ancient native woodlands form a screen on the southern embankment.
A new driveway access and entrance has been approved by planning and roads and has been created on the eastern side. The new entrance provides a much improved and safer visibility splay and is to reclaimed granite stone setts with stone kerbs flanked by level maturing lawn. All that remains to make the access live is to relocate the remote steel gates from their current position to the new site at the eastern side, after which the current entrance will be closed from use.
Leabank is situated just to the western side of Dumbarton on the A814 in the conservation address of Cardross. The house is set amid south facing grounds protected by trees and with fine southerly views out across the Firth of Clyde.
The village of Cardross is about 1.4 miles to the west where there are good local amenities which include a tennis club, bowling club, golf
club, a village store and post office.
Dumbarton centre is about 2 miles to the east where there are further shops, supermarkets and professional services, Dumbarton has primary and secondary schooling, Cardross has a primary school and most of the Cardross address children attend the secondary school in Helensburgh.
Helensburgh is a larger town offering more extensive services. Named after Lady Helen Sutherland, daughter of the Duke of
Sutherland and wife of Colquhoun of Luss, Helensburgh grew during Victorian times, with merchants from Glasgow able to access the city via quick rail connections. The birthplace of
John Logie Baird, the inventor of television, the town now offers an excellent range of local and specialist shops, supermarkets. Lomond school (primary & secondary) is the independent school of the district and provides schooling for day pupils and boarding pupils.
On the Firth of Clyde, nearby Rhu Marina (8 miles) is one of Scotland's most popular marinas with excellent facilities and easy access to some of the world's most testing and scenic sailing waters. The marina at Rhu offers comprehensive berthing and chandlery services.
Loch Lomond is the centrepiece of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and is an area of natural and often dramatic beauty. On all sides of the loch there are some of the most scenic and challenging walks and hill climbs in Scotland. The loch offers inland sailing, boating and water sports opportunities. Fishing is possible by permit on the loch and some of the surrounding rivers.
Some of the local estates can, by prior arrangement, offer stalking, grouse and pheasant shooting.
As with most parts of Scotland, one is never too far from a golf course and Leabank is no exception. Cardross has an excellent 18 hole parkland course. Loch Lomond has the revered Loch Lomond Golf Club as well as the Carrick Golf Club and Spa.
