Braeholm, Helensburgh


Braeholm is an exclusive development of just 12 luxury bespoke two and three bedroom apartments located in the highly sought after sea side town of Helensburgh.


Built in 1837 by celebrated Scottish architect William Leiper, Braeholm is an outstanding testament to the design of the period. Leiper was responsible for striking designs, his most famous being the Templeton’s Carpet Factory on Glasgow Green. His works are part of the Arts and Crafts Movement and the Gothic Revival style. Originally erected as a private residence, the building has had several changes of use over the years and was in use recently as a maternity hospital and then a residential facility and community support centre for Aggie Weston’s Royal Sailors Mission. Notables born in Braeholm include artist Stephen Conroy, who along with Peter Howson are part of the “New Glasgow Boys” who came to prominence in the 1980’s. The entrance hall will feature art of the New Glasgow boys and Helensburgh artists in the style of a mini gallery.


The development will create truly outstanding apartments inside the Braeholm building combining state of the art lifestyle features with seldom seen historical period features. Undergoing careful renovation, the finish will be to the highest of standards, by award-winning developers PANACEA property, recently awarded in the Best Renovation / Modernisation category in the Herald Scottish Property Awards 2017 for their Cameron North Lodge property sitting proudly on the shores of Loch Lomond.


Each property will have its own unique distinguishing features, such as cupolas, balconies, skylights, snugs, mezzanines and studies.

In many apartments, high ceilings and bay windows further complement the stunning views of the Clyde with its regular flotilla of sailboats and cruise liners.


All apartments come with a fully integrated Porcelanosa kitchen. Appliances will be from Siemens and other high quality brands. Where possible apartments will feature solid worktops and breakfast bars formed in Krion. All will come with integrated washer-dryer and dishwasher.
