Morar House, Helensburgh

About the Project

Morar House is located in the upmarket area of Helensburgh on the north shore of the Firth of Clyde. It is magnificently placed to benefit from the extraordinary outward views over the Clyde Estuary. The house is a unique and impressive A listed William Leiper designed mansion adjacent to the ‘Hill House’.

The house has been vacant for a number of years but there are still numerous original features present. All Saints Living have received planning permission to create 7 spacious apartments in the original house and to develop a new build extension within the 1.59acres of land, housing 5 apartments.

Land within the grounds also has planning permission for 3 large detached, contemporary properties.

The Setting

The house is in Helensburgh, 5 minutes from Loch Lomond, and has stunning views over the Clyde Estuary.

Next door to Morar House is Hill House, a National Trust for Scotland property which was built in 1902 by world-renowned designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The Hill House is a visually arresting mix of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Scottish Baronial and Japonisme architecture and design. Mackintosh designed nearly everything inside the Hill House too, from the decorative schemes and the furniture to the fittings and contents.

Morar House is 5 minutes walk from Helensburgh Upper train station and 10 minutes from Helensburgh Golf Club.
