Under Offer £315,000
**CLOSING DATE, FRIDAY 3RD FEBRUARY 12 NOON** Dating back to the mid 19th century, Rowmore Lodge was originally the coach house to Rowmore Mansion and it is an impressive, beautifully designed and characterful detached country home that offers over two thousand square feet of accommodation, with further potential to develop and extend the property as it has exceptionally large garden grounds to the rear.
Tucked away in a delightfully quiet setting in the Conservation Village of Rhu, the house is approached by a quiet, tree lined sweeping driveway from Pier Road. On approaching the house, there is a cobbled courtyard in front of the house that provides extensive parking and at the far end of this courtyard is a level, concrete base with planning permission for the erection of a garage. There is further parking on the other side of the house with a gate from here opening into a glorious mature garden that features large expanses of lawn all bounded by dry stone walls and featuring a variety of shrubs and mature trees on the periphery. The gardens are perfect for family life, being secure and private....ideal for entertaining and for children to play in safety.
The property combines many noteworthy traditional features with a modern specification. With very well proportioned rooms that enjoy an abundance of natural light, this is an exceptional family home that is sure to appeal, offering country living, yet only a two mile drive from the centre of Helensburgh and its wide selection of amenities. The coastal village of Rhu itself is synonymous with outdoor living, with great sailing on the River Clyde and being surrounded by beautiful countryside. There is a village primary school, post office, local hotel, general store and Rhu is also home to the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club.
On entering the property, one is met with the delightful aroma of natural wood that features throughout the ground floor, in particular the solid timber flooring, stunning panelled doors and beamed ceilings. There are timber framed astragalled windows fitted (including arched windows to many of the upstairs rooms) and the property is warmed by a system of gas fired central heating complemented by a striking solid timber fireplace in the family room with large open fire.
On entering the reception hall, there is access from here into the family room itself and this room features a large window looking into the courtyard. To one side of the fireplace is a shelved wall press and at the other end of the room is a further built-in cupboard and glass brick wall looking to the rear. At the rear of the main reception hall is a downstairs shower room which is fitted with a modern three piece white suite that includes a shower cubicle, wc and wash hand basin complemented by ceramic tiling to floor and walls. The main lounge is also accessed from the reception hall and this room is certainly hard to beat as one of the most beautiful living spaces to be found in any property. There are large arched astragalled windows looking into the courtyard, a beautiful natural timber floor and to the rear, French doors open out onto the gardens. The room features a delightful exposed stone feature wall to one side, with traditional wall mounted light fittings and in the centre a chandelier hangs. Moving from the lounge into the semi open plan dining kitchen, this part of the house again exudes character and charm yet offers a modern well finished specification. There is a range cooker with large industrial sized extractor above. There are a number of free standing counter level units that feature a sink unit with side drainer and mixer taps, further work surfaces and an island unit. Three windows face to the front, there is a tiled floor and French doors opening out to the back gardens. Again the room features a stunning chandelier light fitting complimented by inset downlighters and there is ample space at one side to accommodate a large dining table and chairs. Off the kitchen there is access to a sizeable utility room which is plumbed in for a washing machine and tumble dryer and has a window to the rear.
From the dining area a staircase ascends to the upper landing which is almost fifty feet in length and is naturally lit by three large “Velux” windows to the rear of the house. At the far end of the landing, a door opens out to an external staircase leading down to the gardens. The master bedroom is an impressive twenty two feet long room which is laid out in an 'L' shape making it perfect to have a dressing area. There is an arched window to the front and a further high level window providing great natural light. The second bedroom at the other end of the landing again features an arched window and a period style cast iron fire surround with timber mantel and an open fire. There is a further “Velux” window to the rear, again providing great natural light. The family bathroom on this level features a separate bath, shower cubicle, wc, wash hand basin and bidet and it is an exceptionally large room with tiled walls, floor and with a “Velux” window to the rear. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one being a good sized double room and the second being a large single room. EPC - Band E
