Helensburgh comprises a town of approximately 16,000 persons being located within Argyll & Bute and at the confluence of the Gare Loch and the River Clyde, approximately 22 miles north west of Glasgow Centre.  The closest town is Dumbarton, having a population of approximately 20,000 persons and the two are linked via the A814 and A82/A818 which are the main arterial routes through the town.  The town is well served by public transport with both regular bus services and two train stations, Helensburgh Central and Helensburgh Upper.
West Clyde Street forms one of the main arterial routes within the town centre and connects with East Clyde Street and Sinclair Street (A818) a short distance to the east.  The street is formed on the seafront with the entire area benefitting from substantial streetscape improvements which include new pavements and parking areas. 
The town centre contains a mix of retail uses and local services and caters for the resident population and significant tourist visitors to the town and the local area.  Occupiers within the town centre include a mix of independent and local traders, along with national retailers such as Tesco, Co-operative food store and Costa Coffee.  Adjacent include Cattle & Creel restaurant, a beauty salon, car dealership and barbers shop.


The unit forms part of the ground floor of a traditional terraced tenement building, being 3 storeys’ in height, constructed of solid sandstone and having a pitched, timber framed and concrete tiled roof.  The existing shopfront is being altered to form a new glazed door and two new display windows, both of which will be protected by newly installed electrically operated roller shutter doors.  The remaining shopfront will be re-painted.
Internally, the shop has been subdivided to form main sales area, store room, staff/kitchen area and toilet accommodation, although as part of the refurbishment planned, this could be re-designed to remove the store room and increase the sales area.
The floor is of suspended timber, with generally plasterboard emulsion painted walls (to be re-plastered) and a lath and plaster ceiling with ornate cornicing.
The toilet contains WC and WHB.
The property is in the process of being refurbished with the owner being prepared to work with individual tenants to provide a bespoke fitout to suit specific tenant requirements.  The quoted rent is based on the following works being completed:
  • New aluminium framed display windows x2 and new entrance doorway
  • Newly painted exterior masonry
  • New electrically operated roller shutter doors
  • Replastering and re-decorating walls throughout
  • New galvanised cable trays and lighting to main sales area
  • Removal of redundant and installation of new electrical sockets (surface mounted galvanised trunking and sockets are planned)
  • New LED lighting to rear kitchen and toilet areas
  • Replacement/renewal of kitchen units and sink
  • New sanitarywear in toilet
  • Repair/replacement of rear window
  • New heating system
