Property Description


A simply outstanding two storey home forming part of a Grade B listed mansion house dating from 1881, ‘Methlan Mews’ is an exceptional property finished to an exacting standard, providing a highly adaptable seven apartments and a generous floor area of 2,496ft² (inc. recently refurbished/repurposed outbuilding – now gym/studio). Finished to an exacting standard, with our clients having invested considerable capital in both material improvements/upgrades and aesthetic changes.

The property enjoys a fantastic, tucked away position within the Kirktonhill district of Dumbarton, with the green expanses of Levengrove Park and the shoreline of the River Clyde a short stroll from the property’s front door. Idyllic in setting and with a fantastic garden to its rear – south/west in orientation and very private. This is a property that will appeal to a wide variety of purchasing profiles.

The programme of upgrading has included:- the extensive renovation of an outbuilding to create a home studio/gym with kitchenette and shower room, the installation of secondary glazing, a replacement kitchen (Howdens), replacement boiler (Ideal Vogue Max combi), the implementation of two new fireplaces (lounge and dining room), replacement ensuite shower room in principal bedroom suit, creation of a dedicated utility room off cloakroom w.c.

Our suite of HDR images, 360° immersive tour, HD video and floorplan will allow for thorough desktop appraisal of the property, with a summary of the accommodation to be found as follows:-

A highlight is the recently created/converted outbuilding – where our clients have formed a fantastic studio/gym with kitchenette and shower room off. Could be equally well utilised as a ‘bed sit’ or home office – a real treat of a space that lends itself to a number of functions.

The property is alarmed.

Outside the property has a fine sized garden, laid mainly to grass and with a gravel drive/parking area for a number of cars.  It is screened by fences, established planting and trees.  There is a further lean-to stone cellar store (timber clad externally) – great for storage.  The rear garden has a south and west orientation.  Beyond the property’s own garden, the area of meadow garden to the right-hand side of the entrance driveway, to Methlan, is jointly owned, we understand, by the proprietors within Methlan. 


Dumbarton is a vibrant town with an excellent range of local services and facilities.  It affords a first-class commuting base to Glasgow City via train or via the A82 road network.  Glasgow is approximately 19 miles away and Glasgow Airport some 13 miles, over the Erskine Bridge.  Dumbarton has three Railway Stations, Dalreoch Station being within a 10 minute walk, providing ready links, on the North Clyde Line, to Glasgow’s Queen Street Station including a service through to Edinburgh Waverley.  There is also a service westbound terminating in the nearby coastal town of Helensburgh.  Leisure interests are catered for by Sandpipe Marina on the River Leven and a short drive away, at Balloch, the expenses of the wonderful Loch Lomond.  Golf Courses are nearby at Cardross and The Carrick and beyond this the world-famous Loch Lomond Golf Club at Luss.  As detailed earlier, there are numerous walks nearby as well as a national cycle route.

Across the road is the fantastic expanse of Levengrove Park which was generously gifted to the folk of Dumbarton by two Ship Building Families – John MacLellan and William Denny (the aforementioned owner of Methlan House).  In addition to Ship Building (the famous Cutty Sark was built in Dumbarton by the Scot and Linton Shipyard) it is also famed for whisky.  It sits proudly where The River Leven confluences with The River Clyde and indeed in its ancient past Dumbarton was the capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde, with history dating back to the 5th Century.  Methlan House certainly has a part in Dumbarton’s history and The Mews is an opportunity for the purchaser who is looking to take on a beautifully presented/well-equipped property of historical significance.
