Property Description

Full description

“Haywood” is a distinctive and very elegant detached stone built Victorian villa dating back to the 1860's. The property is in a quiet part of town, in the much sought after upper west side of Helensburgh.

Set amidst beautiful, mature gardens of approximately half-an-acre in size, this home displays many distinctive features both inside and out and with accommodation perfectly proportioned for the larger family, with its six bedrooms, great living space and a versatile and adaptable layout.

On entering the grounds from Colquhoun Street, twin wrought iron gates open into a gravelled driveway that provides parking for numerous cars to the front, side and rear of the house. To the front, a large expanse of lawn is bounded by mature and well kept hedging with a selection of trees bushes, plants and shrubs adding colour. The lawn sweeps round to the other side of the house and around to the rear and the gardens are fully enclosed and perfect for entertaining and for children to play in complete safety.

On entering the property from the front, a magnificent canopied entrance porch with stone pillars on either side leads to a twin timber arched front door leading in turn into the main reception hall. To the front of the house, the sizeable drawing room and separate lounge are linked by twin timber doors and offer lovely views across the front gardens. The drawing room displays an original timber fireplace with gas effect fire and with large windows to the front and side providing an abundance of natural light. The adjoining lounge features a bay window and again has a fireplace to the focal wall. Adjacent to the drawing room is an impressive dining room with window to the side of the house and access to the garden. Behind the dining room is a downstairs study and next to this, a further entrance from the garden. Also accessed from the rear of the hall is a shower room that is contemporary in its design with a beautiful glass wash hand basin, walk-in shower cubicle (with rainshower) and wc and a comfortable sitting/television room, leading through to a rear hallway that gives access to a pantry, utility room, downstairs bedroom (bedroom 6) and ensuite. The open plan dining kitchen features windows to front and side, with the kitchen beautifully fitted with cream coloured timber units complemented by granite work surfaces and featuring a Rangemaster professional gas cooker with five hot plates, double oven and stainless steel extractor hood above. Please note that the owner has had architect's plans drawn up for extending the size of the kitchen area by knocking through the pantry and utility room. These can be viewed at Clyde Property's Helensburgh office.

The impressive half landing features a large bay window and there is access from here to a fifth bedroom, again with windows enjoying views across the garden. There is also direct access to the back of the house with steps leading down to the garden.

Moving on to the upstairs accommodation, the large landing gives access to the master bedroom at the front of the house. This is a sizeable double room, enjoying fantastic views over the River Clyde and with its own large and modern ensuite bathroom. On this floor there are three further generously proportioned double bedrooms, one with wash hand basin, on this floor along with a family bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle.

Features of note throughout the property include fully functioning sash & case windows along with cornicing, feature light fittings, an original fireplace and stone sun dial in the garden.

The centre of Helensburgh is only a stone's throw away and it provides numerous amenities that include a great selection of shops, banks, post office, restaurants, bars and cafés along with two train stations, one being Helensburgh Central with regular and frequent services to Glasgow and Edinburgh and the other being Helensburgh Upper with sleeper services to London.
