Set on the northerly bank of The River Clyde, to which this house has a view, the development has only 37 houses, all high value. Kirktonhill is home to the area’s largest properties, the location of the grand Victorian Villas of the wealthy Shipping Merchants of the day – Dumbarton historically was home to a number of the major Ship Builders on The River Clyde in the 19th Century. Beside this, and but a quarter mile from the house, is the superb expanses of Levengrove Park – a wonderful park given, in 1885, to the folk of Dumbarton through the philanthropy of two wealthy shipbuilders, William Denny and John MacMillan. Recently, the Park was the recipient of over £3m worth of investment. Within it is the excellent Pavilion Café. The Park sits at the confluence of The River Clyde and The River Leven. This house really is in a beautiful spot.As clients will see from our photographs and video, this house (The Berkeley Model) is an immaculately presented home, most tastefully decorated. Its specification is high with extensive use of oak finishes, including internal doors, to create an appealing traditional ambiance. This traditional feel is very much part of the exterior architectural design. All windows are double glazed and there are quality composite, security, external doors. Central heating is mains gas with a high efficiency Worcester Greenstar condensing boiler (renewed in 2019), with an indirect unvented hot water cylinder to ensure high pressure. The integral double garage has the convenience of remote-controlled electric garage doors and a pass door into the house (utility room). Within it is a vehicle charging point, by EO. The house has a security system as well as external sensor lighting. The quality fitted kitchen has a range of integrated appliances and all sanitaryware is white and by Villeroy and Boch with thermostatic showers by Hansgrohe. Storage provision has not been an afterthought and as one can see from our floor plans, there is ample general and wardrobe provision. Truthfully, this is a home of very considered design and undoubted quality.GROUND FLOOREntrance Vestibule; Reception Hall with storage including a “hidden” understairs cupboard; bay windowed Lounge with a fine Yorkshire stone Minster fireplace with a living-flame gas fire; Dining Room; Living Room with bay window arrangement, including French doors to the rear garden, via steps; open-plan Kitchen boasting a range of mahogany units, with granite work tops and upstands.

There are lawned gardens to front and rear, the majority, on a slope, at the rear which is enclosed by fencing and a section of traditional stone wall. A double width drive, very well finished in a sand-coloured Resin bound provides off street parking for two cars in front of the double garage. The rear garden is gated and includes a large, well designed, sun deck that provides a terrific outside space for drinks and al fresco dining and to take in the views to The River Clyde. There is a garden shed. Opposite the house, and providing another pleasant outlook, is a lovely area of landscaped, well planted, communal gardens, with trees, very well maintained by the Factor for the development, Spiers Gumley.
Dumbarton has ancient roots and indeed was the capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde with dates as far back as the 5th Century. Visually, it is known for Dumbarton Rock and its Castle set prominently on The River Clyde, at the confluence with The River Leven. As mentioned earlier, Dumbarton was famed for ship building but also for whisky. The world-famous Clipper, The Cutty Sark, superbly located and featured in dry dock at Greenwich Village, London was built in Dumbarton in 1869.
The town has a good array of local services and amenities as well as shops. It provides an excellent commuting base to Glasgow City, which is approximately 19 miles away and it has three Railway Stations in the town providing regular and speedy links, on the north Clyde line, to Glasgow’s Queen Street Station including a service through to Edinburgh Waverley and westbound to the nearby coastal town of Helensburgh. For the great outdoors, the wonders of Loch Lomond and its surrounding peaks are but 5 miles away. Sporting interests are catered for with a Tennis Club and Bowling Club in Kirktonhill and for golfers, there are excellent courses at Cardross and The Carrick (on Loch Lomond) along with the world-renowned Loch Lomond Golf Club at Luss. Cameron House Hotel and Spa, with its private Leisure Club is a 10-minute drive away. There are numerous walks as well as a National Cycle Route on your doorstep.
