The former Carman Stables and Lodge House


Renton, near Dumbarton takes its name from Cecilia Renton (daughter-in-law of Tobias Smollett) after whom the sandstone, 'model' village was named in 1762. Dalquhurn Bleachworks in 1715 and Cordale Printworks in 1770 were responsible for attracting new industrial workers. At the north of the village stood the Place of Bonhill, a residence from 1642, to the South was Dalquhurn House. Two parallel north-south streets, Main Street and Back Street were first joined by Station Street, Stirling Street, Burns Street, Thimble Street, Market Street and Red Row. In late Victorian times, the village extended southwards to Leven Street, Alexander Street and John Street. Further expansion occurred in the 1930s as housing was built in the grounds of Cordale House. It lies on the main road, A82 as was, between Alexandria and Dumbarton. Renton railway station is on the line from Glasgow to Balloch.


The former Carman Stables, archery centre and lodge are situated just outside the village of Renton near Dumbarton and represent an excellent opportunity. The property itself is detached and built in circa 1993. The current owner has lived there for around 17 years. The property itself comprises a reception hall, sitting room, 3 bedrooms, family bathroom, dining kitchen, utility and WC. There is an outdoor arena, with 10 horse boxes, feed room, tack room and outdoor WC. The property benefits from circa 1.6 acres of land in addition to the lodge and stables.
