Property Description

Full description

**SOLD @ CLOSING** From its elevated position above Ardenconnel Way, this distinctive and attractively designed 1930's detached chalet style bungalow sits amidst beautiful mature gardens that offer a great deal of privacy. The house extends to around 1800 square feet over its two floors, and as the home report quite clearly shows, the property is in need of comprehensive upgrading, modernisation and general attention. This has been taken into account in the attractive asking price and with a sensible price being set, it offers the buyer the opportunity to put their own stamp on the property and to even extend the house, with scope to go out the back or to further develop the upstairs accommodation with its large walk-in attic eaves area which could be an additional bedroom.

On entering the grounds through a small timber gate, the front garden features a large lawned area with a path leading from the gate up to the front steps. The gardens are enclosed by a stone wall to the front, mature hedging on three sides and there is access around the side of the house to the back garden which extends away from the property rising up with its large expanse of lawn to a sitting area that offers fantastic views across the Gare Loch and to the hills beyond. Again the gardens at the rear are very private and enclosed and they enjoy a great deal of natural light and sunshine.

On entering the house itself, twin timber outer storm doors open into a small vestibule which in turn leads through a glazed timber panelled door into a very large hallway. At the far end of the hall a staircase ascends to the upper landing and to the front of the house the immediately impressive oriel windowed lounge takes in fantastic views. With its two additional windows to the side, it is a bright, spacious and potentially magnificent formal public room. On the other side of the hall and also to the front of the house is a large downstairs double bedroom which has a built-in cupboard. To the rear of the lounge is a separate formal dining room which has a window to the side and from here there is access through to the kitchen which is in need of complete modernisation but has windows overlooking the back gardens, a built-in cupboard and access out onto the grounds. Also on the ground floor is a downstairs bathroom and beyond this a utility room which leads through to a boiler room/large store area. Again from here there is access out to the garden.

Moving onto the upstairs accommodation, the stairs have a half landing turn with a window to the rear and the large upper landing gives access to a sizeable double bedroom taking in the fantastic views across Rhu to the water. There is a second double bedroom upstairs along with a recently upgraded disabled access shower room which has a shower cubicle, wc and wash hand basin. Also accessed from the landing is a large undeveloped full height attic eaves area which would make a fantastic additional bedroom. The house features predominately original timber framed sash & case windows although some of the windows in the lounge have been adapted with double glazed panes. Mains gas is supplied to the house.

There is an attached garage to one side which has power and light laid on and with a courtesy door to the rear.

Situated in the delightful conservation village of Rhu, the property is in an established and much sought after part of the village, set amidst a variety of traditional and more modern detached family homes. Rhu offers good day-to-day amenities with excellent sailing on the Gare Loch and with the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club only a short distance away. The nearby town of Helensburgh provides more extensive amenities with great shopping, bars and restaurants along with train stations and good leisure facilities. Rhu is within commuting distance of Glasgow as well as the M8 motorway network and Glasgow International Airport via the Erskine Bridge. There is also good schooling found in and around Helensburgh.
