Twelve luxury bespoke two and three bedroom apartments
50% reserved off plan
Braeholm is an exclusive development of just twelve luxury bespoke two and three bedroom apartments in the highly sought after seaside town of Helensburgh. Built in the 1860’s and extended by celebrated Scottish architect William Leiper, it is an outstanding testament to the architecture and design of the period.
Architect Leiper was responsible for striking designs, his most famous being the Templeton’s Carpet Factory on Glasgow Green. His works are part of the Arts and Crafts Movement and the Gothic Revival style.
Originally erected as a private residence, Braeholm gained category B listing status in 1993. It has had several changes of use over the years. Recently it was in use as a maternity hospital then a residential facility and community support centre for Aggie Weston’s Royal Sailors Mission.
Notables born in Braeholm include artist Stephen Conroy, who along with Peter Howson is part of the “New Glasgow Boys” who came to prominence in the 1980s.
Braeholm’s original decorative panelled hall, now featuring art of the New Glasgow Boys and other Helensburgh artists, provides a dramatic entrance to six apartments. The remaining six apartments benefit from their own private entrances.
Braeholm is still accessed through the original gateposts leading to beautiful common gardens and a grand sweeping driveway.

High ceilings and bay windows further enhance Braeholm’s beauty and together with the fabulous balconies provide not only great spaces for alfresco dining and entertainment but also stunning views of the Clyde with its regular flotilla of sail boats and cruise liners.
Vestibules and internal/external staircases are also a distinguishing feature of many apartments, some with secondary rear entrances.
