The influences of both these famous Scottish architects is evident in the design of this striking home.

Helensburgh is a beautiful coastal town built upon the northerly hillside above the Firth of Clyde. It is home to some of Scotland's most elegant and substantial period homes, many built for the shipbuilders and merchants of Victorian and Edwardian Glasgow.
The town has excellent schooling at both primary and secondary level, in both the public and private sectors, respectively Hermitage and Lomond School.
There are an enviable level of local amenities including shops and restaurants and it has two railway stations (lower and upper), providing ready links to Glasgow and beyond, together with a connection to Edinburgh. The area is surrounded by some lovely walks, it has a sailing club, a marina and an excellent golf course that is "just over the hill" from the, world renowned, Loch Lomond Golf Course at Luss. Indeed, just to the north of Helensburgh is Scotland's first national park the Loch Lomond &Trossachs National Park with all the magnificent hills, lochs and scenery it affords.
For those living and working in Helensburgh, East Lennox Drive is a wonderful place to live, Helensburgh is a regularly accessible base for Glasgow (either by car or rail) and, indeed, for areas further afield such as Stirling and perhaps even Edinburgh which can be reached in about 90 minutes. Glasgow Airport is only a comfortable 40 minute drive away.
