Property Description

Full description

Dating back to the mid 1800's, this completely unique, distinctive and immensely characterful property is a two storey apartment formed on the first and second floors of one of Helensburgh's most distinctive stone built buildings, located on the corner of East Princes Street and Henry Bell Street. Being of historic and architectural interest, the building is category B listed.

Along with its exceptional accommodation that extends to around 2100 square feet, the property comes with a large tandem garage that is adjacent to the main building and accessed from Henry Bell Street. Adjoining this is an outhouse store and a delightful traditional, stand alone detached stone built bothy/cottage which, whilst requiring modernisation and upgrading would lend itself well to being developed into a home office/studio or a workshop. In addition to the outbuildings, the property has its own private garden space that faces south and west and is enclosed by stone walls. There is also a shared, lawned drying green at the side of the building.

Access to the property is by a gate from East Princes Street where the main door is on the ground floor with a lower vestibule with store cupboard off. Stone stairs ascend to the first floor landing which in turn leads to a sizeable lounge with dual aspect windows and a feature fireplace with open fire. There is a second formal public room which is currently used as a dining room, again with windows on two walls and again with a feature fireplace and a walk-in pantry with built-in storage cupboard. In between the lounge and the dining room is a study which could be used as an additional bedroom if required and also on this floor is a large double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe, a modern shower room with a walk-in shower, wc and wash hand basin and a breakfasting sized kitchen with wall mounted and base units and with windows on two walls.

A staircase from the hall accesses the upper floor where the landing leads to two sizeable double bedrooms and a large single bedroom. One of the double rooms has an ensuite wc with wash hand basin with enough space for the addition of a bath or shower if required. The other bedroom has an adjoining dressing room/boxroom, which again could be converted for use as an ensuite. The property is warmed by a system of gas fired central heating and the windows are a combination of traditional timber sash and case units (many with working original shutters) and “Velux” windows in the ensuite, boxroom and single bedroom upstairs. Please note that the owner may be prepared to leave certain items of furniture and appliances (by arrangement).

Enjoying a very convenient location, with Hermitage Academy and the Waitrose store both within easy walking distance and with the centre of Helensburgh also a short level walk away. The town centre has shops and supermarkets, Helensburgh Central train station with services to Glasgow and Edinburgh and a wide selection of other facilities with banks, post office, bars and restaurants. Helensburgh is surrounded by beautiful countryside, is commutable to Glasgow and the international airport and with Loch Lomond only a short drive away. The town provides good schooling, both at primary and secondary level, as well as a number of recreational facilities. EPC - Band D
