Property Description

Full description

Dating back to the mid 1860's, Aiden Grove House is a beautifully presented, characterful and spacious family home. Sitting amidst delightful mature gardens, the house takes in fantastic views across its own grounds and over the Firth of Clyde from its elevated position well above the road. The house commands a great deal of privacy and the gardens feature large areas of lawn, colourful and well stocked mature beds and to the rear, there are vegetable plots, a sheltered decked sitting area that can be accessed from the rear of the house and at the far end, a timber shed with decked surround takes in the full splendour of the gardens. Along the full length of the grounds to one side, a burn wanders it way down to and under a bridge on Argyll Road.. Brick and stone retaining walls run along the course of the burn. The gardens also feature extensive driveway parking and they are very private from the surrounding properties.

The interior of the house extends to over 2200 square feet and with its very well thought out and usable layout, it is perfect for family living. The house is stylish in its décor with striking Farrow and Ball colour schemes throughout and it combines many fine period details along with a modern specification that complements the age of the house perfectly. On entering from the front, there is a delightful reception hall and at the far end there is a downstairs cloakroom and a staircase ascends to the upper landing. The beautifully proportioned, bright and stylish lounge to the front has a magnificent fireplace to the focal wall with a wood burning stove. It enjoys lovely views across the gardens to the front and adjoining this room is a separate study/home office/family room where double doors can be opened to link both rooms. Also to the front of the house is a formal dining room, again with lovely views and from here a door leads through to a separate breakfast room, with a further door leading through to the kitchen. The kitchen has been beautifully refitted with modern wall mounted and counter level units and there is enough space at one end for a small table and chairs with views to the side and rear overlooking the gardens. There is an integrated double oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. From the kitchen there is access to a rear hall which in turn leads to a downstairs wc, a large laundry room with drying facilities and a garden/playroom to the rear of the property. Off the hall there is a door leading out to the gardens.

Moving onto the half landing, at the rear of the landing is a stained glass window and off this small hall there is access to a contemporary shower room with a large walk-in shower, wc and wash hand basin and at the other end of the hall a built-in cupboard and a door leading through to a beautiful sitting room which has French doors opening out to a decked terraced area which enjoys all day long sunshine throughout the spring and summer months. On the main upper floor of the property, the landing gives access to a stunning master bedroom which takes in some of the best views in the house across the water and it has a large walk-in dressing room off. There are three further bedrooms on this floor and one of these, which is a perfect guest room, has its own ensuite bathroom at a slightly lower level. The property is warmed by a full system of oil fired central heating and the windows are a combination of original timber sash & case windows along with a number of “Velux” windows and timber framed double glazed units in the rear, extended part of the house. Infinity Broadband from BT is now available in Kilcreggan.

The house has solar panels on the roof. These generate electricity for the National Grid and the panels are owned outright by the householder and will be transferred to the new owner. They generate an income from the householder currently in excess of £1000 per annum. Further information is available at

Argyll Road enjoys one of the best positions within Kilcreggan, set back from the busy main front road yet still taking in some of the most spectacular views in the area. Kilcreggan itself is a vibrant community with a primary school and number of clubs and groups catering for a wide range of interests and the village benefits from many local amenities that include a range of shops, bank, post office, health centre, hotels, pub and a garage. There are good transport links from the village with a regular bus service to Helensburgh which is the nearest large town and a pedestrian ferry across the river over to Gourock with a connecting rail link from Gourock to Glasgow. Helensburgh is approximately twenty five minutes' drive and it provides a wider selection of shops, supermarkets, banks, post office, bars and restaurants along with a rail service to Glasgow, Edinburgh and even to London. Glasgow Airport can be reached by road in approximately fifty minutes and the West End of Glasgow in just over an hour. EPC - Band F
