Property Description

  • Newly built (2023) contemporary Detached House.
  • Striking modern façade.
  • Four double bedrooms.
  • Bathroom and two Shower Rooms (one being ensuite).
  • Lounge and a super Dining Room/Kitchen.
  • Well insulated and with air source heat pump.
  • Double glazed including two sets of French doors.
  • In the prime Kirktonhill district of the town.
  • Compact garden.
  • Not far from the glorious expanses of Levengrove Park.MacKinnon Lodge is an architect designed Detached House of striking contemporary design, finished in slate stone, anthracite grey Cedral cladding, and anthracite grey coloured framed windows. Started in 2022 and completed in March 2023, the house is a well-insulated property and comes with the future-proof heating of an air source heat pump (Hitachi) with a high capacity Thermaflow hot water cylinder.As our imagery shows, the property is superbly presented, is bright and airy, and has a real sense of space with 2.69 m (8 ft 10 in) ceiling heights on the ground floor, and 2.38 m (7 ft 10 in) upstairs. The heart of the house is the open-plan dining room and kitchen, the former having two sets of French doors to decks (one east, one west) and with units by Ultima with sold Quartzstone worktops and a good range of integrated appliances. The lounge, rather appealing designed on an open-plan arrangement to the hall, has a dual aspect with two large two-framed windows facing east and south. The sanitary ware, and tiling, is very much ‘on trend’ and cannot fail to impress – a shower room on the ground floor and a bathroom along with a second, ensuite, shower room upstairs. The four bedrooms are all fine sized doubles, with three of them on the first floor and the convenience of the fourth bedroom on the ground floor level (would make for another public room if four bedrooms are not needed).Located in Kirktonhill, Dumbarton’s most admired district, and a conservation area, the property is located at the very far end of Keil Gardens (a cul-de-sac) passed the remains of the old Keil School and set behind the Victorian MacKinnon House. MacKinnon Lodge has, initially, a shared access drive with its immediate neighbour, MacKinnon Mews, another modern detached house, where contemporary driveway lights provide a lovely evening approach to the house. It has a relatively compact, easy to maintain, garden, ideal for busy professionals and those for whom life is not for toiling in a garden. Its gravel drive will take up to three cars and its low maintenance turfed, decked, and bark covered beds, are enclosed by either timber fencing or a fine old stone wall.Ground Floor

It has many local services and facilities and a really first-class selection of shops, including those to be found at the St James Retail Park. Glasgow is easily accessible as a commute, being some 19 miles away and readily accessed via the A82. There are three railway stations in the town providing regular links on the North Clyde line to Glasgow’s Queen Street, as well as services through to Edinburgh Waverley and westbound to the coastal town of Helensburgh. It is only some five miles from the world-renowned expanses of Loch Lomond and the stunning peaks that surround it.Levengrove Park is a jewel in the Dumbarton crown and was gifted to the residents of the town by two of its most famous residents – the shipbuilders William Denny and John McMillan. It really is a lovely spot that leads down to the waters of the Clyde and its confluence with the River Leven, and upon it is the excellent Pavilion Café. The Kirktonhill district also has a bowling club and a tennis club.SAT NAV REF: G82 4EJNote: Some Sat Nav devices do not always take one to the correct location. Keil Gardens is off Helenslee Road. Passing the old Keil School buildings, drive to the very end of Keil Gardens cul-de-sac, where you will find MacKinnon Lodge situated behind the stone building of MacKinnon House.
