The property enjoys wonderful open aspects over Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde. The development of ferrying first began in the villages of Cove and Kilcreggan in 1840 when the use of steamers on the Clyde made the area more accessible. The first houses were used only as summer houses, but as time went on, permanent occupation took place. As roads and vehicles developed, steamer traffic declined and one by one the piers closed. Today, Kilcreggan Pier remains the only traditional pier on the Clyde still in daily use. It has a rich architectural heritage of Victorian maritime villas. Famous architects such as Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, William Leiper and John Honeyman were among many to build impressive homes for wealthy clients.
Today many such homes remain, with villagers commuting to Glasgow by road in around an hour, under normal driving conditions, or by ferry, with a journey time of around 15 minutes to Gourock where there is a direct train to Glasgow or a 45 minute train ride from Helensburgh. The sleeper train from London Euston stops at Garelochead train station. Glasgow Airport can be reached in around 45 minutes under normal driving conditions. Kilcreggan has its own primary school with the local secondary at the nearest town of Helensburgh (16 miles). Lomond School in Helensburgh provides excellent private schooling at primary and secondary level. Helensburgh is renowned as one of Scotland's most desirable towns with excellent local shopping, a swimming pool, golf course and the nearby Rhu Marina. Cove and Kilcreggan have a thriving social scene and excellent facilities for younger sailors to learn. There is also a wide variety of shops. Loch Lomond and the world-renowned Loch Lomond Golf Club are within 23 miles. Some of Britain's most testing sailing waters are to be found on Scotland's west coast.
The ground floor conversion at St Vincent Park is an extremely well positioned property with enviable views over the water. One of the property's best features is its magnificent garden and grounds both to the front and rear. The property also benefits from a former coach house in need of modernisation. The room above the coach house has a wood burning stove and has been used as a writing studio by the current owners. The apartment itself is also in need of refurbishment but has lots of potential and benefits from double glazed windows. The property comprises a driveway, a welcoming reception hall, sitting room, three bedrooms, one with a dressing room off, downstairs WC and a kitchen. The two large reception rooms have retained some original features such as cornicing and in the dining room is an original working Victorian feature fireplace. The sitting room has a stylish and newly serviced Franco Belge wood burning stove. There is a stairway leading to a further bedroom and bathroom.
