Morar House was designed by the acclaimed architect William Leiper and the original part of the building has been carefully restored and converted into seven impressive apartments. To the side of the existing building there is a fabulous new build extension which has been sympathetically designed to blend into the existing house and there are a further five apartments to be found here. The development offers a range of different apartments, with a mixture of sizes, layouts and aspects across beautiful communal gardens and with some properties enjoying Clyde views. In addition to all the properties within the building three further bespoke detached, four bedroomed family homes will be built to the south of Morar House. All the interiors will be contemporary in design, providing luxury living spaces.
The Morar House Estate is located in the picturesque seaside town of Helensburgh, close to some of Scotland’s most iconic scenery including the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Adjacent to Morar House is the Hill House, a National Trust for Scotland property that was built in 1902 by the acclaimed designer Charles Rennie MacIntosh. Morar House has been strongly influenced by MacIntosh's Arts and Crafts style, evidence of which can be found in the stone work and external features of the building.
The property is a short walk from Helensburgh Upper train station and the town centre is not far away, providing a wide range of amenities including fantastic shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and other eating places as well as Helensburgh Central train station with services to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The picturesque promenade enjoys fantastic views of the Firth of Clyde and over to the Rosneath Peninsula. Helensburgh offers great schooling, (both state and private) along with a wide selection of leisure facilities, with wonderful sailing on the Firth of Clyde and the nearby Gare Loch.
