Property Description

Full description

**UNDER OFFER**Forming part of a striking detached villa by William Leiper, “Upper Hilden” is a beautiful apartment conversion occupying the upper floor of the villa, with its own private access, extensive mature and sheltered gardens and large garage.

This B listed property occupies a corner site at Charlotte Street and East Abercromby Street. On entering from East Abercromby Street, a slabbed and gravelled driveway provides parking with access through twin wrought iron gates. A side gate also offers pedestrian access to the property. There is a substantial garage block that features an electrically operated door to the front, windows to side and rear and a courtesy door opening out to the gardens at the back. Power and light is laid on and there is good storage in the roof space.

From the driveway, a gate opens into the gardens that offer a huge amount of privacy. They are laid out all on the level, surrounded by mature trees, well trimmed bushes, hedging and stone walls and they enjoy all day sunshine. With large expanses of lawn, colourful flowerbeds and a raised timber decked terrace, the gardens access the main door of the apartment, which in turn opens into a lower hallway with staircase to the apartment itself.

The accommodation extends to around 1600 square feet and features many lovely traditional details including astragalled windows with a number of bay windows, solid timber internal doors, skirtings and architraves, and intact ceiling coving. Whilst the apartment displays many of these original features, the specification is modern throughout, with tasteful décor complemented by a high standard of finish. The main reception hall is large enough to accommodate a dining table and chairs and has two deep built-in store cupboards. From here there is access through to a delightfully bright bay windowed formal lounge with feature marble fireplace to the focal wall. There is an additional window to the side providing extra natural light and adjacent to the lounge is a comfortable day-to-day sitting/television room which could be used as an additional double bedroom if desired. The kitchen is fitted with extensive wall mounted and counter level timber units with a good run of work surface areas and ceramic tiled splashbacks. An astragalled window provides great natural light and there is an inbuilt oven, hob and extractor hood, as well as a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Next to the kitchen is a formal dining room that features windows at either end of the room. The master bedroom features a bay window and is a large double room with lovely open outlooks. Adjacent to this is a second impressive double bedroom, again with a bay window enjoying wooded aspects. There is a modern wc compartment that features timber panelling to dado height and a contemporary white two piece suite. The family bathroom has been beautifully redesigned and refitted with a bath, contemporary glass walk-in shower enclosure, wc and vanity wash hand basin, with tiled floor and walls to full height and windows on two walls. The property is warmed by a system of gas fired central heating and the windows are a combination of single glazed timber framed astragalled units and replacement double glazed units.

Located in an established and quiet part of town, “Upper Hilden” is within easy reach of the town centre which offers a wide selection of amenities, with shops catering for all needs, banks, post office, many bars, cafés and restaurants, with Helensburgh Central train station providing regular and frequent services to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The area is synonymous with leisure facilities with sports clubs throughout the town including Helensburgh Golf Club, sailing on the River Clyde and with nearby Loch Lomond providing some of Scotland's most striking scenery.
