Development Site - 100 + homes

The site at Blairvadach House offers a unique development opportunity. The site comprises approximately 8.66Ha and includes the Category B Listed Blairvadach House and substantial surrounding estate.

Most recently used for offices, the sandstone building offers an excellent opportunity alongside the wider site for development.

Blairvadach is located 3 miles North West of Helensburgh and as such, is very close to local transport links and amenities with a bus stop at the foot of the road.  Furthermore, the site boasts outstanding views over the Gare Loch and the wider area.  

Proximity to HMNB Clyde.
