About this property

  • This detached house in Helensburgh's popular upper west end is a spacious and bright property, which has remained in the same family since it was built for them in 1960. This is the first time, therefore, it has ever been on the market.

    The house is approached via a private gravel driveway, which leads to the glazed entrance door and into the vestibule that in turn opens into the hallway. Here, large windows to the front make the space light and welcoming with the ground floor reception rooms off and a staircase rising to the first floor.

    Double glass opaque doors lead to the sitting room which has a full wall of picture windows overlooking the garden; a fireplace, and double sliding doors leading to the dining room from where there is access to the fitted kitchen with floor and wall mounted units and appliances including a gas hob and electric oven. Also off the hallway is the garden room with sliding doors leading to the garden. A cloakroom and WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

    The modern staircase leads to the upper floor where there are five bedrooms (one of which could also be used as a home office) and two bathrooms. A boxroom and linen cupboard provide good storage space.

    The south facing gardens at Invermay are generously sized and mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs including rhododendrons and azaleas and mature trees. There is a lovely raised patio for summer dining.

    There is a garage to the side and additional storage is provided by a store in the back door porch area, plus an external garden toolshed.

So unusual to find a home that has remained in the same family since it was built over 60 years ago, Invermay is a wonderful family home with good sized rooms in the ever popular upper west side of Helensburgh, which will appeal to a wide audience.
