Property Description

Full description

“Cairnsmore” is a stunning main door ground floor conversion that forms part of a substantial sandstone built detached villa ( C 1850). Set well back from Queen Street, at the end of a long tree lined driveway with stone pillars at its entrance, the property extends to almost 3,400 square feet and with its main rooms enjoying delightful aspects south across extensive garden grounds towards the River Clyde.

The gravelled driveway opens to a large gravelled parking area in front and to the side of the property. The gardens feature large expanses of rolling lawns to the front and side of the house, along with mature shrubs, bushes, plants and trees providing a great deal of privacy and screening. There are colourful bedded areas adjacent to the lawns and the driveway also provides access to a single car garage to one side of the house with a magnificent Victorian “orangery” on the other side of the house.

The property itself occupies the entire ground floor of the villa and there is also a further study/bedroom accommodation on the first floor level which is above the “west wing” of the property.

Cairnsmore retains many of its original features throughout, including stripped parquet flooring, intricate cornice work , decorative mouldings, period fireplaces, high moulded skirting’s and ceiling roses. The property combines this with a modern specification, generously proportioned rooms and an extremely versatile layout that is ideally suited for the larger family.

On entering from the front, stone steps lead to a Minton encaustic tiled outer vestibule which opens into a magnificent welcoming formal reception hall with parquet flooring and intact cornicing.

To the front of the property, the impressive bay windowed drawing room features a period style fire surround with slate hearth and an Aga wood burning stove. The bay window enjoys aspects south across the gardens and with views across towards the River Clyde. Featuring solid oak flooring, ornate cornicing and intact picture rail, this is a simply stunning public room.

On the opposite side of the hall is an impressive spacious family room with large three framed window again with south facing views. At its focal point is another period fire surround with tiled insert and open fire. A glass panelled door opens through into a delightful traditional “orangery”.

The orangery takes in views across the gardens to the side of the house and to the front with its impressive glazed ceiling, walls and Terrazzo tiled floor, interesting features includes a small ornamental pond that is incorporated into the floor.

Next to the family room there is a separate formal dining room with window to the side of the house and again with a period fireplace at the focal point.

Beside the dining room this is the 1st of the bedrooms, an impressive double room with two windows to the side and with a period fireplace with decorative tiled insert, cast iron grate and hearth.

On the other side of the hall is a generously proportioned family sized kitchen which accommodates a large dining table and chairs with ease. The kitchen features a solid wooden floor, timber units at counter level with solid timber surfaces along with an inset sink, a range cooker and inbuilt dishwasher. There is a window to the rear, an American style fridge/freezer included and a further window to the side providing an abundance of natural light.

From the kitchen is access to a staircase that ascends to a first floor level where there is an additional bedroom which is currently used as a study/music room. This is a delightful room with a huge amount of natural light streaming in from its south facing window that takes in the best views in the house across the gardens and over to the River Clyde.

Returning to the kitchen, there is a door leading to the west wing of the property where there is:- a further bedroom - a good size double room with south facing window, a built-in cupboard adjacent to this and a hallway leading through to a pantry, shower room and large utility room which has a window to the rear. From the hall a door opens out to the gardens at the side and gives access to the garage.

The main reception hall extends to a rear hallway which leads to two additional well proportioned double rooms, one of which has built-in wardrobes to the full length of one wall and windows to the side and the other with window to the rear.

There are two bathrooms in this area of the house, one of which has been completely refitted with a contemporary suite in white with a wc, wash hand basin, bath and shower cubicle. The other bathroom features a coloured three piece suite and traditional tongue and groove walls and ceiling, giving it a distinct nautical theme.

The property is warmed by a system of gas fired central heating and the windows are timber framed sash & case units with operational wooden panel shutters.

Queen Street is regarded as one of Helensburgh's finest addresses in the upper west side of town, yet only a short distance from the centre of Helensburgh which offers a wide selection of amenities that include local shops catering for everyday needs, along with supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants and with Helensburgh Central train station offering regular and direct services to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
