Number 60 is on the preferred country side of Belmont Road meaning that it has excellent views across adjacent farmland to the River Gryffe and Duchal woodlands.
Surrounding homes are all of similar vintage and architectural style and there is a pleasant mix of both executive villa and bungalow type homes.
The centre of the village is about 750 metres away and is a pleasant generally level walk. Kilmacolm village centre, recently redeveloped, hard and soft landscaped, is very pretty and has local stores including a larger type Co-op all offering everyday provisions, as well as popular village restaurants, boutique type home stores and coffee shops. The community centre and library are now at the very pleasant pedestrianised heart of the village which plays host to the occasional farmers Saturday market.
The village has a thriving social community and there are clubs catering for golf, tennis, squash and bowling. Kilmacolm Golf Club is about 1 mile away to the northern side of the village. The course is a challenging 18-hole heath/parkland course designed by the acclaimed course architect James Braid. The village has an excellent health and fitness centre at Birkmyre Park.
Surrounding countryside is some of the most attractive in West Renfrewshire and for the outdoor enthusiast this is fine walking country. The Sustrans cycle track leads to and connects with many other parts of central Scotland.
The Knapps is famed for its brown trout angling and the River Gryffe has runs of salmon at the back end, both require fishing permits. There are some small shoots run locally as well as rough shooting, both of which can be arranged with local land/estate owners.
Castle Semple Loch offers inland sailing and the Firth of Clyde has excellent chandlery and marina services at Inverkip, Largs and Ardrossan as well as some of the UKs most scenic and enjoyable coastal sailing.
Kilmacolm has an excellent local primary school and the independent St Columbas, with its enviable record of academic achievement, richly deserves its sought after label. Glasgow has further independent schooling.
The Braehead and Silverburn retail villages are around 15 miles to the south and there one can find a tremendous range of high street multiples together with M&S and Sainsbury anchor stores. Braehead also has an IKEA furniture store.
Glasgow city at 17 miles has all the cultural, higher educational and leisure services normally associated with a major international centre.
The village has a regular bus service to Glasgow and there are main line rail links at Langbank (4.5 miles) and Johnstone (7 miles). Glasgow Airport is only 10 miles and offers domestic and international flights.
The A761 leads to the A737 and subsequently to the M8 motorway corridor which provides fast motor car access to central Scotland and beyond.
