An “absolutely delightful” six-bedroom Helensburgh sandstone villa has hit the property market – and could be yours for less than £500,000.

The semi-detached home, up for sale for offers over £479,000, covers more than 2,700 square feet and was built around the turn of the 20th century.

To the front of the house, a bay windowed main drawing room features a period style fireplace with open fire.

There is an alcove to one side and the room also features solid timber flooring and attractive period details.

The family room again features a period fireplace with a living flame gas fire and a three framed window to the front.

A bright kitchen to the rear of the house comes complete with a range cooker and integrated dishwasher and has room for dining space.

From there, there is a door out to a recently built modern and fully double-glazed conservatory which opens out onto the gardens and adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room.

An additional sitting room could be integrated into the annexe at the far rear of the house to become part of the teenager suite if required.

From the rear sitting room, a door leads through to a modern kitchenette with a range of appliances.

From here, there is access into the main part of the annexe where there is a hall with understairs storage, a bedroom, and a modern shower room with three-piece suite.

On the ground floor there is also a downstairs cloakroom and w/c under the stairs.

Moving to the upper floor, the half landing features a stained-glass window and the upper hall is large enough to fit a study desk and chair.

Four double bedrooms can be found on this floor, each with their own individual fireplaces with original decorative tiled inserts and hearths.

A modern ‘jack and jill’ en suite serves two of the bedrooms, with a three-piece suite including shower enclosure, w/c, and vanity wash hand basin.

The main family bathroom has a four-piece suite with a bath, separate shower enclosure, w/c and wash hand basin.

A small staircase ascends to the small second floor where a further bedroom can be found.

The house is warmed by a system of gas fired central heating with two separate boilers - one serving the main house and the other the annexe - and all windows are double glazed.

On entering the gardens from Sinclair Street, a large timber gate opens into a gravelled driveway and parking area to the front and side of the house.

There is a large lawn to the side with a variety of mature trees and bushes as well as hedging providing privacy.

In the back gardens, there are more lawn areas, three timber sheds, and from Kennedy Drive there is access to a single car timber garage.
