This exciting and geographically unique potential development site is located at the end of Station Road and sits between Craigendoran Station and the shorefront of the Firth of Clyde. The site is completely unique due to its stunning waterfront location, is totally level and commands stunning views to the south, west and east over the water across to Greenock. The location is perfect for access to Helensburgh’s amenities that include schooling, recreational facilities and shopping.
It is understood from our client that the site extends to approximately 7 acres (purchasers should confirm exact boundaries and size. Please note that the shaded photos used online and in the PDF are to be used only as an indicator of the site boundaries). The site would undoubtedly lend itself to residential development or alternatively a mix of residential/leisure/tourist development. Please note that Network Rail have recently constructed new coastal defences along parts of the site (detailed map of works available from Clyde Property’s Helensburgh office).
The site is identified within the Helensburgh – Craigendoran “Area for Action” which suggests that the council will support recreational/tourist development within the broader area. (Please refer to Argyll and Bute Council website for more information) Potential interested parties would also be advised to confirm with Argyll and Bute Council and SEPA as to the viability of developing the site. Please note that no previous planning application for development of the site has been made to Argyll and Bute Council and therefore the layout, density and make up of any potential development will be subject to consultation with the planning department. The adjacent site has been granted, this year, planning for a B&B and kayak centre.
Helensburgh is an affluent commuter town of Glasgow, part of Argyll and Bute council and lying on the north shore of the Firth of Clyde where it meets the shore entrance to Gareloch.
The town is 31.9 miles (51 km) by road and is served by three rail stations, with direct links to Glasgow, Edinburgh and London. Helensburgh is also the birthplace of John Logie Baird, the inventor of the television.
The town is home to handsome buildings, elegant tree lined streets and a long promenade, being the location of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's famous "Hill House". There are good schooling options, both state and private institutions. Ideal for the outdoor enthusiast and very close to Loch Lomond, there are also numerous sports clubs, including sailing on the Clyde Estuary.
