8 Bedroom House, Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh, G84 9JP

Property Description

Movie link -

Thorndean epitomises classic period architecture and the grandeur of the Victorian era at its very best.

This highly impressive villa, privately situated within beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained grounds, is located within one of Helensburgh's cherished addresses, in the heart of the town's conservation area.

Perfectly suited to the demands and rigours of modern family life, Thorndean has been transformed by sympathetic modernisation, whilst retaining a wealth of defining architectural features. Providing generous family accommodation over three levels and within close proximity to some of Helensburgh's most imposing family homes, Thorndean' s previous owners used this handsome home as a bed and breakfast establishment with four lettable bedrooms (2 en-suite) and a further four second floor double bedrooms - offering prospective buyers the option to generate a secondary income.

Impeccably maintained, this striking and highly deceptive family home comprises: entrance vestibule, charming reception hall with sweeping staircase leading to the upper floors, impressive bay windowed formal lounge with classically styled marble fireplace, southerly facing formal dining room with double aspect window and Victorian fireplace, sitting / family room, easterly facing study, breakfast room on open plan to a bespoke, craftsman fitted kitchen with four oven Aga cooker, utility room, laundry room, cloakroom and downstairs wc completes the ground floor. The first floor provides a 22' bay windowed master bedroom, two guest bedrooms - both with en-suite shower rooms, a further double bedroom and modernised, traditionally styled bathroom with rolled top bath and shower enclosure. The second floor offers a further four double bedrooms and bathroom.

The detached gardener's cottage, situated to the rear of the house, is currently used as a workshop but is eminently suited for conversion to a garden studio, home office, 'granny flat' or a lettable cottage offering a gated driveway with an independent access onto Millig Street.

The property offers a large detached double garage, imaginatively developed carport with pitched and slated roof and a further brick-built outbuilding comprising: a log store, coal cellar and w/c & store.

The beautifully landscaped garden affords considerable privacy and is cleverly laid out and 'zoned' into for distinct areas. It features a large circular driveway (enclosing the front lawn), providing a drive in / out facility and off - street parking for several cars; a screened kitchen garden area (with raised beds, fruit trees and shed); a private terrace with 'BBQ', providing a lovely environment for entertaining; and a further lawned area with green house, to the front of the gardener's cottage.

Colquhoun Street is within the catchment of Hermitage primary school and Hermitage Academy and is conveniently located within a third of a mile of the Lomond School, an HMC independant co-educational school.

Surrounded by some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery, Helensburgh, known as the 'Garden Town' of the river Clyde, was the holiday destination of the city merchants and is renowned for its tree lined avenues and famed for its handsome Victorian mansions.

The town offers a wealth of amenities including: a regular train service to Glasgow and Edinburgh (journey time of around 45 minutes to Glasgow), a broad selection of shops, Waitrose supermarket, places of historic and cultural interest, health care facilities, banks, a selection of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, parish churches, leisure centre and local parks.

Sports and recreational pursuits are well catered for with the provision of cricket, rugby, football, tennis, squash, bowling, golf and sailing clubs. Rhu marina and the Royal Northern and Clyde yacht club are conveniently situated some 2 miles to the west of Helensburgh.

Fishing, hill-walkers and out-door enthusiasts are spoilt with the wealth of amenities on offer surrounding the estuary and National park which include country estates, challenging mountain ranges, nature trails, water sports facilities and out-door centres.

The Clyde estuary and the Lomond and Trossachs National Park are areas of outstanding natural beauty. The National Park is home to Loch Lomond golf course, the renowned De Vere Cameron House hotel and the championship standard Carrick golf course and spa.

Glasgow city centre - 27 miles. Glasgow Airport - 23 miles. Loch Lomond - 6 miles.
