A SUBSTANTIAL five bedroom detached family home in one of Helensburgh's most sought after locations is on the market for offers over £679,000.

“Braeriach” is a striking category B listed villa, designed in 1908 by the renowned architect Robert Wemyss and a fantastic example of an arts and crafts style property of this era.

Beautifully presented both inside and out, the home extends to around 4,000 square feet.

Thoughtfully planned and laid out, the versatile interior of the property displays some stunning period features including herringbone parquet flooring in the reception hall, family room and cloaks, fireplaces in the bedrooms and drawing room, along with astragalled windows (with stained glass feature windows), a butler’s pantry in the kitchen, attractive ceiling cornicing and picture rails.

Throughout the house, the standard of finish and décor is exceptional.

On entering the property to the rear, the large entrance vestibule opens into a stunning reception hall with its beautiful herringbone flooring. From here, a staircase ascends to the upper accommodation and there is a cloakroom off with wc adjoining.

The magnificent open plan drawing room and dining room has a bay window facing south and access to a beautiful conservatory. The conservatory is a lovely place to sit and enjoy sunny garden views.

There is a large family room at the end of the hall with views over the gardens and with access out to a greenhouse at the side of the house.

From the family room, a door leads through to the sizeable, beautifully fitted and period style breakfasting kitchen featuring an AGA and more than big enough to accommodate a dining table and chairs.

Beyond the kitchen is a large utility room and laundry room, a larder, a back staircase to the upper floor, along with an internal hall where there is a store room currently used as a gym.

Moving onto the upstairs accommodation, on the half landing there is access to a shower room and separate wc and from here there is a study leading through to one of the bedrooms.

Off the main landing, which is a large space, there is access to four further sizeable double bedrooms with the master bedroom suite having an adjoining dressing room and ensuite shower room.

One of the other bedrooms, which is a perfect guest room, also enjoys a large ensuite bathroom which can also be accessed from the upper landing.

The garden grounds are entered through twin stone pillared gate posts with original art deco wrought iron gates opening into a gravelled driveway to the rear of the house that provides parking and gives access to a large car port and garage.

On either side of the driveway there are lawned areas with mature trees, bushes and shrubs planted.

Moving from the driveway, a gravel path leads around to the front of the property which is a completely private and sheltered garden with a large expanse of lawn enjoying all-day-long sunshine, again interspersed with a variety of mature trees, bushes, plants and shrubs.

The address is one of the most sought after in Helensburgh, co- located with Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s iconic The Hill House on the upper west side of the town, in a quiet conservation area.

This desirable location is virtually traffic free yet within easy reach of the centre of Helensburgh where a wide selection of amenities are on offer.
