Full description

Highgare epitomises classic period architecture and contemporary living at its very best.

Commanding wonderful views over the Gareloch and the surrounding hills, Highgare enjoys a prime, elevated position within the coastal hamlet of Clynder and backs directly onto the hillside.
Significantly enhanced by an imaginative, architect designed rear extension (completed in 2011 by Raymond Grieve Builders), the property (built circa 1867) is of classic Victorian style and is presented to the market in walk-in condition.

Highgare has benefitted from an extensive refurbishment programme - carried out over the course of the past 10 years, which has included: a re-slated roof (with replacement barge boards and soffits), an insulated attic, reconstructed chimneys, the installation of a downstairs wc, a high standard of internal fixtures / fittings including a fitted bathroom with a 'state of the art' shower enclosure, a refitted second bathroom, a bespoke rear door, replacement of the garage roof, garden pergola and the erection of a fruit cage.

Highgare retains a wealth of defining architectural features including: original fireplaces, ornate ceiling cornice plaster work, deep architraves and skirtings and has been enhanced by the installation of quality, hardwood framed double glazed windows and doors.

The spacious, versatile accommodation comprises: an entrance vestibule, reception hall and sweeping staircase (with original balustrade), a cloakroom/wc and a charming lounge with 'period' fireplace and stunning views from the bay window which stretch from Helensburgh in the south to the hills above Arrochar to the north. Also on the ground floor there is an impressive dining room with original fireplace, a family room / 5th double bedroom, a classically styled breakfasting kitchen with a 'Belfast' sink, a work/hobby room and a substantial utility room. The delightful staircase provides access to a superb galleried landing which is on open plan to the imaginatively conceived study (featuring hardwood, double glazed French doors to an elevated walk-way-leading to the lovely rear garden), four double bedrooms, and a beautifully appointed Sottini fitted bathroom with shower enclosure and additional bathroom.

The home is complemented by an oil fired central heating system and offers a detached single garage, a large shed, a coalstore used for firewood and garden tools, a greenhouse and pergola.

The extensive gardens (of approximately 0.6 acres) are a delightful feature of the property and have been enhanced by the current owners to provide colour and interest throughout the year.

Highlights include a wide variety of spring bulbs, a 'wild meadow' including fritillaries and orchids, colourful shrubs and herbaceous borders, productive fruit trees and vegetable garden and an impressive collection of maple trees.

The vendors own a mooring on the Gareloch lying close to the Clynder shore which would be available by separate negotiation.

The desirable hamlet of Clynder forms part of the Rosneath peninsula which is surrounded by some of Scotland's most spectacular and picturesque scenery. It is well placed for access to Garelochhead's railway station (around 5 miles away) on the Highland line providing services to Glasgow, Oban and Mallaig (and reputed to be the most scenic train journey in the UK). There is also direct access to the local footpath network on the peninsula

The nearby villages of Rosneath and Garelochhead provide reputable primary schools and the town of Helensburgh offers Hermitage Academy and the Lomond co-educational school.
Clynder offers a popular bowling club, slipways providing dinghy access to the Gareloch and a regular bus service to the neighbouring villages of Kilcreggan (which offers a passenger ferry service to Gourock), Rosneath, Garelochhead and Helensburgh.

Rosneath provides a reputable primary school, two churches a recently expanded and refurbished Co-op store, a further selection of shops and two boat yards.

The historic and picturesque coastal town of Helensburgh, with its origins in the 17th century, provides an excellent quality of life together with reputable public and private schools, a broad selection of shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars, leisure centre and swimming pool, several parks, two train stations (with regular services to Glasgow).
