more details

• Substantial Victorian Detached House. • Five bedrooms, approximately 2,850ft2 (265m2). • Four public rooms, kitchen, large laundry, and ancillary rooms. • Generous garden, about 0.8 aces. • Investment required to upgrade. • In the Kirktonhill district, close by Levengrove Park. Kirktonhill is a Conservation Area of Dumbarton and is home to the town's most substantial period homes - built largely in the 19th Century by the wealthy Commercial and Shipping Merchants of the day, drawn to the location due to its high point in the town, close to the waters of the Firth of Clyde and beside the expanses of Levengrove Park. This Victorian Stone Detached Villa has been in the ownership of our client, and family, for many decades and has served generations of the family. As clients will see from our imagery, and note from the commentary in the Home Report, the subjects are dated and will require investment to modernise in order to bring to a standard appropriate for modern living. That said, a commensurate accommodation has been made on price to allow the purchaser the necessary scope to undertake the programme of works required to renovate the house to a home of their style, specification, and budget and, in so doing, add value. It sits proudly at the top of its generous garden (some 0.8 acres), with south-easterly and south-westerly aspects, on a corner plot with Helenslee Road and Kirkton Road, delineated to this boundary by a fine original stone wall, behind which is natural screening by way of laurels. In its day this really would have been a grand house with its high ceilings, ornate cornicing (retained), panelled doors, fireplaces and staircase and surely can again for its next custodian. GROUND FLOOR Entrance Vestibule; Reception Hall and rear Hallway; traditional Cloakroom, off which is a WC compartment; bow windowed Sitting Room with a painted (marble - we suspect) fireplace; Dining Room with ornate hand carved fireplace in oak (living flame gas fire not tested); Living Room with painted wooden fireplace; Family room/Playroom; a traditional Kitchen with very old units and open wall shelves; good sized Laundry/Utility Room with two Belfast sinks; Larder with cooling slate shelf; Store/Boiler Room; Pantry's/Stores; Bathroom (1980's vintage suite including shower enclosure). FIRST FLOOR Five Bedrooms - includes what would originally have been the first floor Drawing Room, now the Principal Bedroom. This room has, in part, been partitioned to create Bedroom 5 (Dressing Room). [Note: There are two sets of Bedrooms with inter-connecting doors]; Bathroom with white suite. CELLAR Accessed via a door with a set of wooden ''ladder stairs' beside the kitchen. Stone floor and walls (great place for wines!). OUTBUILDINGS Single Garage (stone and breezeblock) accessed off Kirkton Road. Attached to this, running along the inside of the northerly wall are two ''open' Stores and a Tool Shed. HEATING Mains gas with quite a modern Worcester Greenstar 40CDi conventional condensing boiler. GARDENS Sizeable grounds of approximately 0.8 acres lying mainly to the front (southeast) and side (east) of the property, under grass. There are many mature bushes, including rhododendrons, and trees at the foot and south westerly side of the plot. A curving gravel drive comes off Helenslee Road to the front of the house. Boundaries are defined by the stone wall to Helenslee Road and Kirkton Road and to the south westerly boundary by a post and wire fence.
