HAYWOOD is a distinctive C-listed 1860s Victorian villa in Helensburgh set in half an acre of secluded garden grounds with elevated views over the Firth of Clyde.

This home’s unusual architectural features make it immediately appealing, most notably the pillared entrance porch with its decorative bargeboard, a feature typical of the Victorian era.

Inside, this home has a refined, genteel ambiance matched by an interior that carefully blends original features with more modern bespoke fixtures and fittings. With accommodation spread between two-and-a-half floors, this home is particularly spacious.

It has four reception rooms (drawing room and lounge connected by double doors; dining room with garden access and family room), an open-plan bespoke fitted kitchen and an informal dining area. There is also a study, utility and pantry, shower room, and double bedroom with en-suite bathroom – including the original cast-iron bath.

Upstairs, this home is unusual in that it has a sizeable half landing with direct access to the garden and also a dual aspect double bedroom, which given its position, could alternatively be playroom or games room.

Continuing up to the first floor, there are four further double bedrooms (master with en-suite bathroom) and a family bathroom.

While the elegant drawing room has an original carved wood fireplace and all traditional proportions you would expect of a home that originally had servants’ quarters, Haywood’s standout rooms are the kitchen – fitted with bespoke white wood units, black granite work surfaces and professional range cooker – and bathrooms, particularly the mosaic-tiled ground floor shower room, with rainfall shower. Completing this impressive property are secluded garden, a south-west-facing terrace and private driveway. Haywood is for sale with Clyde Property’s Helensburgh office at
