HD property video available. Artarman House is something quite unique and special. An imposing B listed residence of over 4500 square feet that stands majestically amidst its glorious garden grounds of around two acres. Whilst there is no planning permission in place, the grounds are certainly large enough to potentially build at least one, if not two more properties (subject to planning of course). Located in a prestigious, tree lined cul-de-sac, the house enjoys almost complete privacy and boasts a layout that offers great versatility for the larger family. A wealth of period features can be found throughout, there are beautiful views across the gardens and for those looking for the perfect location, in a picture postcard village such as Rhu, this property offers it all. There are six public rooms, two kitchens, utility room, two wc's, a master bedroom suite with a dressing room and ensuite, along with a second bedroom that forms part of the master suite. Six further bedrooms, a shower room and family bathroom complete the impressive accommodation list. Not only does the interior of the house impress, but there are numerous outbuildings found within the gardens. Please refer to the attached brochure PDF for more detailed information on the property, as well as a floorplan and stunning HD video. EPC Band E.

What we love about our house
Artarman House has been our home for over 40 years. It has proved to be the perfect family home and two generations have now happily grown up and been educated locally. We have always found that all necessary amenities are available and have made many great friends. Now there are just the two of us, sadly, we need to "downsize", but will leave with very happy memories of the house, the time we have spent here, and the many parties inside and out that Artarman has proved to be the ideal venue for.
The town is served by three railway stations, Helensburgh Upper on the West Highland Line, Craigendoran, on the North Clyde Line and Helensburgh Central, the terminus of the North Clyde Line. It takes 50 minutes to reach the shops and offices of Glasgow City Centre and another 50 minutes to Edinburgh and the East Coast.
The seafront has an indoor swimming pool, an esplanade walk, a range of shops, cafes and pubs and sailing facilities including a marina in Rhu. The streets are built on a gentle slope rising to the north east, and at the brow of the hill a golf club has views looking south out over the town where numerous other sports are active including football, rugby, cricket, athletics, netball, hockey, curling, bowling, sailing and fishing.
The locality is well served by a number of excellent state primary schools providing the high attainment secondary school, Hermitage Academy, with an annual influx of children eager to learn about well known townspeople such as John Logie Baird, the inventor of television; Henry Bell, who built the first passenger steamship ‘The Comet’ ; architect William Leiper ; actress Deborah Kerr ; poet WH Auden ; writer AJ Cronin ; and Prime Minister Bonar Law amongst many others. Lomond School, an independent, co-educational and boarding school also offers private education in central Helensburgh.
