Red Towers Mansion House For Sale In Helensburgh
Red Towers was built in 1898 by famous Glasgow architect, William Leiper (creator of the Templeton carpet factory) and is one of the landmark properties within the pretty town of Helensburgh.

Helensburgh lies on the north shore of the Firth of Clyde and with two railway stations and a good road link, is a popular commuter town for Glasgow as it is surrounded by some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. Many rich Victorian Glaswegians had mansion houses built here making Helensburgh an affluent looking and most desirable town in which to live.

The imposing Red Towers is an A listed building and has been built in a French chateau style. Previously in use as a care home, it would require change of use from the Planning Department to be returned to it’s original function as a private residence. But what a residence it would be!!

Set in a 1.5 acre walled garden, it boasts 14 bedrooms, a private lift and gas central heating. It retains a wealth of distinguishing period features including a magnificent panelled reception hall, original and highly impressive fireplaces, ceiling cornice plasterwork, leaded windows, inglenook recesses, over-mantles and many other features associated with homes of this era and calibre.

Just a little TLC and this would be a fabulous family home.
