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.
