Property Description

Full description

Set in a picturesque glen at the foot of the surrounding hills, “Willowbarn” was purchased by the current owners back in 2015 and they saw the potential to transform an old, run down farm building into a fantastic family home. “Willowbarn” is now unrecognisable and is one of the finest barn conversions to be found anywhere. In addition to purchasing the barn itself, extra land was secured to provide simply stunning gardens enjoying 360 degree views.

During the transformation, the property has effectively been rebuilt, with all the walls being fully insulated and relined, a small extension having been added to the house providing a downstairs wc and an outside store room together with a new outer porch, dormer windows added on the upper level and all complemented by a natural slate roof, beautifully presented dressed stone walls and high performance replacement double glazed windows throughout. Planning permission has been granted for a substantial single storey extension that incorporates a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, utility room and an integral double garage. Plans for the proposed extension are available for inspection from Clyde Property's Helensburgh office.

Extending to almost 1600 square feet, the property is impeccably presented and exudes character throughout. Internally it is finished in beautiful timber with stunning floors, architraves, skirtings and staircase with a particular rustic, yet incredibly stylish feel to the accommodation.

The house sits amidst lovely gardens that feature a large gravelled front courtyard that provides parking, all enclosed by low stone walls and a timber gate at the far end. There is a further gate opening into the side gardens where extensive lawns can be found, with an ornamental fish pond and an area for vegetable plots. There is a large timber built summer house which is currently used as a music studio by the owners and it has power and light laid on and double glazed windows. To the rear of the house there is a large patio area that enjoys afternoon and evening sunshine and can be accessed from the lounge/dining room.

In brief, the accommodation consists of an entrance vestibule that opens into a large open plan lounge with dining area. The focal wall features exposed stone and there is a large wood-burning stove warming the entire room and with a comfortable lounge area in front of it. The dining area beyond is next to a beautiful arched recess where French doors open out onto the patio. A timber staircase at this end of the room accesses the upper floor accommodation and there is a passageway through from the dining room to a completely unique rustic style kitchen with extensive worktops in timber and with freestanding units. There is space for an “Aga” stove or Range cooker as well as other appliances. Finally on the ground floor, there is a wc compartment off the lounge with a traditionally styled, yet modern wc and wash basin.

Moving onto the upstairs accommodation, the galleried landing has a timber balustrade and a void overlooking the French windows below. At the end of the hall, is a deep store cupboard. From the hall, there is access to a beautiful master bedroom which has windows at either end and some fantastic views, two further bedrooms and a traditionally styled contemporary bathroom with the bath having a rain shower above, wc and wash hand basin. The property is warmed by LPG central heating and as mentioned, all of the windows are high performance units.

The property enjoys an idyllic setting nestling between two sets of hills in Glen Fruin which is close the town of Helensburgh where a wide selection of amenities can be found. These include shops, train stations, bars, restaurants, schools and other amenities. The nearby Naval Base at Faslane is only a short drive away and Glasgow is also within commuting distance as is the International Airport via the Erskine Bridge. EPC - Band D
