East Clyde Street
HD Video Available. Commanding one of Helensburgh's most sought after locations, right on the waterfront of the Firth of Clyde, “Shoreland” is a stone built attached bungalow that was formed from the conversion of the original Alexander Greek Thomson mansion house. The property dates from the late 1800’s and sits amidst glorious mature, level and beautifully presented gardens. There is a sheltered patio and extensive lawns at the rear sweeping down to the water’s edge and enjoying all day long sunshine together with some of the best views in Helensburgh along the shore towards the town. On entering the property from East Clyde Street, a twin stone pillared gateway leads to a gravelled circular driveway that accesses the house. To the front of the property there is a substantial double garage (electric roller doors) with adjoining bin and wood stores and additional store. The gardens on this side of the house feature extensive, well stocked beds with plants, bushes and shrubs in abundance. The interior of the property extends to over 2100 square feet and combines a delightful mix of period features with a contemporary specification that includes a modern refitted kitchen, high end bathrooms and a recently built extension housing the utility room. Many of the rooms enjoy aspects across the water. EPC - Band D
