Property Description

Full description


Occupying the ground floor of a handsome detached stone built Victorian villa, this impressive, well proportioned and characterful conversion enjoys magnificent south facing aspects across its extensive mature gardens, over Helensburgh and the Clyde Estuary.

Approached by a long tree lined driveway and set in one of Helensburgh's more established addresses, there is extensive parking for the property (including a garage) in front of the building and additional parking at the side of the property (with a concrete base allowing purchasers to add another garage if so required). To the front, rolling lawns feature, all bounded by colourful mature trees and bushes and with its south facing aspect, the gardens enjoy all day long sunshine.

The main door of the property is to the front, with twin timber storm doors opening into an outer vestibule complete with original Victorian tiling which in turn opens into a most dramatic and impressive reception hall featuring herring bone design solid timber flooring, intricate cornicing and high ceilings. From the hall there is access through to an exceptional bay windowed lounge/drawing room with original shutters that features a period style fire surround, shelved display alcoves/ presses at both sides and intricate ceiling cornicing. Again there is exceptional natural wood parquet flooring throughout. Also to the front of the property is an impressive bedroom, which could be used as an additional public room if required, with three large shuttered windows facing south and to the focal wall there is an open fire place with a grate and to the side of this a shelved display alcove. The second bedroom is to the rear of the property and again is a generously proportioned double room with window to the side. It features its own ensuite bathroom which can also be accessed from the reception hall. The bathroom has a claw foot, roll top enamelled bath, with a shower with traditional circular shower rail, period style high level wc cistern and a counter top ceramic bowl basin, with a stone tiled floor, timber tongue and groove panelling to dado height and a window to the side of the property. There is a heated towel rail. The third bedroom features a breathtaking oriel window to one corner of the property and is a delightfully bright and sunny double sized bedroom. Next to this is a fourth bedroom which could be used as a study and adjacent to this, a second bathroom which is beautifully fitted, again in a period style with wall mounted wash hand basin, wc with high level cistern, roll top claw foot bath and a separate shower stall with glass screen and rain shower above, with timber flooring and window to the side. There is a dual fuel heated towel rail. The elegant dining/family kitchen features hand crafted 'Jonathan Avery' timber units with solid Oak work surfaces and there is enough space for a dining table and chairs. The Aga stove is central to the room and there is a window to the side and an additional door opening out onto the driveway at the side of the property. At the far end of the dining area is a high level door which gives access to a mezzanine storage area and there is a hatch in the floor leading to a cellar/drainage area. The property benefits from a Worcester combi-boiler.

With over 2000 square feet of accommodation, this is an exceptional property and would ideally suit family living. With its elegant period features, sympathetically designed interior and stunning location, it is surely one of the most interesting properties to come to the market of late in Helensburgh.

The town centre is only a short distance away and it offers a wide selection of shops and supermarkets including the recently built Waitrose, banks, post office, bars and restaurants along with train station with regular services to Glasgow and Edinburgh. There is good schooling within Helensburgh both at primary and secondary level with Hermitage Academy being a state secondary school and Lomond school being private. The nearby Cottage Kindergarten, was recently awarded the title of Britain's Top Nursery. Helensburgh provides a great selection of leisure facilities including great sailing on the River Clyde and some of Scotland's finest scenery is only a short drive away with Loch Lomond and the Trossachs being easily accessible. Glasgow is within commuting distance as is the International Airport via the Erskine Bridge. EPC - Band D
