Property Description

This Upper Villa is situated in an established location close to the centre of Rhu within walking distance of local amenities.

The property was formerly the home of renowned artist Richard Dawson who sadly passed away a few years ago however the interior of the property is truly individual with the artist having created his own work of art within the very walls of this residential home.

Richard Dawson was a veteran artist and former gallery owner who lived in the Helensburgh area for over thirty years.
Dawson's influences are numerous and varied and, although now mainly concentrating on small works, his large scale works including murals and paint effects can be seen in Harrods, Dior and in private residences in the the Channel Islands, Switzerland, Belgium and The Netherlands. His smaller works adorn the walls of Highland castles and London townhouses.
Eclectic might be the most appropriate word used to describe Dawson's and his three year study of the works of famed Italian painter, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio has been widely reported in both the local and national press. At the same time, Dawson is just as comfortable painting Trompe effects or pop art or employing his extensive experience in creating scenic artwork to conjure up imaginative 3-D works.

It may well be any buyer wishes to revert back to a more orthodox interior however those who are perhaps admirers of Richards work (which is now posthumously selling for significant money) may well decide to retain much of this fascinating interior

Every visit to the house reveals more detail and the effort and time that has gone into some of the creations is staggering.

The accommodation comprises c. 1000 sq ft which makes this a comfortable sized property and the layout is unchanged and provides excellent sized rooms.

Hallway, large main lounge/living room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms (the main one has bee turned into a phenomenal dramatic space) and a shower room.

The property is heated with gas central heating and has a large loft area.

Rhu is a conservation village and offers a good selection of local amenities with a convenience store just around the corner and within easy walking distance. There is a highly regarded primary school in the village along with a church and there is great sailing available on the Gare Loch and the Firth of Clyde with Rhu Marina and the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club both only a short distance away. The larger town of Helensburgh is just a five minute drive away and it provides a wider selection of shops and supermarkets, bars, restaurants and cafes along with a good number of leisure facilities, secondary schooling (both private and state) and with train stations offering links to Glasgow, Edinburgh and even a sleeper service to London. Glasgow is within easy commuting distance from Rhu as is the International Airport via the Erskine Bridge.
