Built around 1838, Artarman House is a truly unique detached residence that sits in one of Rhu's most prestigious and sought after addresses. Set amidst beautiful mature gardens that extend to some two acres, Artarman House is category “B” listed, being a building of architectural interest and historical note. The property offers exceptional accommodation that extends to over 4,500 square feet and as one would expect in a home of this calibre and period, many original features can be found throughout the property.

The layout of the home offers versatile living and as the attached floorplan will show at present the ground floor offers four simply stunning formal apartments that include a drawing room, a separate formal lounge with wood burning stove, family/living room and a formal dining room. There are two kitchens (in separate wings) of the property, one of which is modern in design and well equipped. It has an adjoining wc/cloakroom and a door out to the gardens. The other kitchen is laid out open plan with a fantastic split level dining room and it features a large four oven AGA range cooker. From this kitchen there is access to the rear of the property where there is an additional room, currently used as a playroom and with a utility room off. Also downstairs is another wc at the rear of the main reception hall. There are two separate staircases within the house, with the main one from the reception hall. The second staircase gives direct access up to the master bedroom suite. The master suite has a dressing room and an additional adjoining bedroom and a bathroom and there are a further six bedrooms to be found with a large family bathroom and a shower room.

“Artarman Road” is a delightful tree lined cul-de-sac that is home to only a handful of individually designed detached family homes. The house is located at the far end of the road and as mentioned is set amidst gardens that extend to some two acres, all beautifully presented and thoughtfully laid out with large expanses of lawn interspersed with many mature plants, bushes, shrubs and trees. With a driveway that loops around the front of the house, the gardens also feature a pond with small bridge across, a large raised patio terrace to the east side of the property and to the other side there are formal gardens that include further patio and sitting areas, colourful and well stocked shrub beds and a wide selection of outbuildings, a timber summer house, a further small summer house, a covered car port, two timber workshops and an open sided wood store. There are two further insulated and lined timber sheds which have power and light installed and are located adjacent to the house at the rear. In addition adjacent to the rear door of the property there is an integral boiler room housing the hot water and central heating boiler together with two hot water storage tanks.

In terms of location, Artarman House enjoys one of the finest settings locally, within the conservation village of Rhu and close to an excellent range of amenities that are found within the village. These include local shops, a primary school and with bus services linking Rhu to Helensburgh and beyond. The nearby town of Helensburgh is only a short drive away and offers a wide selection of shops and supermarkets, good schooling, both at primary and secondary level with Lomond School offering private education. There are banks, a post office, bars and restaurants all found within the town and Helensburgh has train stations providing links to Glasgow and Edinburgh and even a sleeper service to London. Glasgow is easily accessible via the A82 (Great Western Road) and can be reached from the house in around forty minutes and the International Airport is also within reach across the Erskine Bridge. The area is synonymous with outdoor pursuits with many sports and recreational clubs in and around Helensburgh and Rhu and some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery is only a couple of minutes' drive away. There is great sailing on the Clyde Estuary and the Gare Loch with the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club and Rhu Marina both within walking distance. EPC - Band E
