About this property

  • Glenview is a welcoming detached villa thought to date from around 1840. The outlook to the front of the property is exceptional, overlooking lovely landscaped gardens and with views beyond to the Firth of Clyde.

    The accommodation is set over two levels and begins at the front through double storm doors to the half glazed entrance porch and door to the welcoming hallway. Off here to the left is the drawing room with bay window overlooking the garden to the front and fireplace with multi fuel wood burning stove. There is a door through to the dining room which has French windows to the rear courtyard and a window to the side. From the dining room there is also access back to the reception hallway. At the heart of Glenview is the kitchen/family room benefitting from under floor heating, this is a fantastic full length room: the kitchen is fitted with floor and wall mounted units and integrated appliances including a range cooker.. The family room is to the front of the space with bay window and additional window to the side. Again there is a cosy fireplace with multi fuel wood burner. From the kitchen two stairs lead to the generous utility area with windows and door to the side, and a WC completes the downstairs accommodation.

    From the hallway a staircase leads to the upper floor. The first floor landing splits to the left where there is a bedroom and bathroom and to the right are two further bedrooms both with en suite shower rooms. The master bedroom is 21 ft long with dual aspect windows.

    The landscaped gardens at Glenview are a credit to the present owners, set in an enviable position and mainly laid to lawn with trees and shrubs. The driveway leads to the double garage at the side of the house which has a useful large sail loft area above. Stairs lead from the lower level garden to the front of the house with a gravel and patio area for summer dining.

Local information

  • Glenview is set back from Shore Road with wonderful open aspects over the Firth of Clyde. Nearby Cove, Kilcreggan and Peaton were established around the mid 19th century and initially were used mainly as destinations for summer houses, but as time went on, full time occupation took place. Originally there were ferries to Cove and Kilcreggan, but today Kilcreggan Pier remains the only traditional pier on the Clyde still in daily use. The peninsula has a rich architectural heritage of Victorian mansions, castles and cottages with famous architects such as Alexander ‘Greek' Thomson, William Leiper and John Honeyman among the many to build impressive homes for wealthy clients. Today, many permanent homes remain, with villagers commuting to Glasgow by road in approximately 1 hour and Glasgow Airport reached in approximately 45 minutes, under normal driving conditions. Kilcreggan has its own primary school with the local secondary school in the nearest town of Helensburgh. Lomond School in Helensburgh provides private schooling at primary and secondary level. Helensburgh is renowned as one of Scotland's most desirable towns with excellent local shopping, swimming pool, golf course and nearby Rhu Marina.
  • Loch Lomond and the world renowned Loch Lomond Golf Club are approximately 20 miles away and some of Britain's most testing sailing waters can be found on Scotland's west coast.
