Estate agents Clyde Property said: “Commanding one of Helensburgh’s most sought after locations, right on the waterfront of the Firth of Clyde, ‘The View’ is an exceptionally elegant main door conversion that is formed over three floors.

“The majority of the accommodation is located on the first and second floors and some spectacular water views are to be had from many of the rooms.

“The house itself (‘Rockfort’) was built in 1849 for the Provost of Helensburgh and was designed by the renowned architect William Spence.

“The house is grade ‘B’ listed (being a building of architectural note and historic interest) and it is set amidst a delightfully small, gated development of elegant detached houses and cottages with a distinct Mediterranean feel.

“The development offers a real ‘lock and leave’ option for the homeowner when away from home.

“Rockfort itself enjoys the pick of the plots, being located adjacent to the shore front and with some of the most magnificent views to be found anywhere in the west of Scotland.”
